    Marvel hasn't even announced a sequel for Black Panther and Dr. Strange yet, so anything could happen in Phase 4. Personally, I don't see why they won't greenlight a 3rd Ant-Man & Wasp movie to complete the trilogy.

    Hopefully yes. I also really want Dr Strange and Black Panther trilogies at least.

    Well it would suck some of the jeopardy out of Infinity War to rule out so many character deaths. I'm sure they'll announce plenty not long after that movie is released.

    Another person from Burton's Batman brought to the MCU, cool. I only learnt of it through listening to KRYPTON's podcast as I type this in.

    I can only imagine what she will look like in her Wasp I costume

    Pshaw. Nobody has to die to make a movie good.

    Winter Soldier and Civil War managed to be great without any main character deaths.

    X-Men: the Last Stand managed to be kind of terrible, despite working character deaths (Scott, Charles, Jean) pretty hard.

    When the plotting of the 'event' is 'who dies in this one,' you know the House is bereft of Ideas.

    as much as I like Pfeiffer, and this is good casting (that I am hyped for) don't get me wrong there...

    but, surprised they went with someone her age (I mean she still looks amazing, and not just for her age, but...) depending how it is handled I guess...

    if most her screen time is going to be of her de-aged in flashbacks... then why not just cast someone younger, an age her up only for her scenes in the present setting

    also, if she has been stuck in the Quantum Realm would she have aged normally? if she ages normally shouldn't she be older? if she doesn't age shouldn't she be younger?

    just saying age wise, something just isn't adding up

    I mean if she got lost in the Quantum Realm in the 80's, roughly 30-35 years (assuming she's playing the character around her true age, Pfeiffer is 59)
    so, she would have been around 25-30 back then, where Douglas's Pym would have been late 30's early 40's (again assuming Douglas plays Pym as being his true age) don't re-call if his age was mentioned in the last movie?

    although, Janet was always younger then Pym in the comic so I guess that works

    We know next to nothing about the quantum realm so it's impossible to say whether or not her age makes sense. It's also entirely possible Janet is older than the actress playing her, which is common enough for female roles in Hollywood anyway.

    Regardless I think it's also because they wanted to avoid the double standard that usually comes with actresses not being allowed to age in Hollywood. There's still a decade of difference between Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer's ages, but by Hollywood standards this is not as bad as it could've been.

    They just need to get Danny DeVito, Jack Nicholson or even Christopher Walken as Scott Lange's dad in Ant-Man 3 for a possible Scott & Hope wedding.

    Nicholson is best saved as someone like Norman Osborn's father.

    I have a friend who cannot for the life of her read comics. Her brain can’t process where she’s meant to look and where.
    She’s a big Gaiman fan and I said she should try Sandman. She tried but gave up.
    She just couldn’t get her head around the format.

    Some comics are easier than others to follow. What about Watchmen, which has a very obvious format? If you read Sunday morning newspaper comics, you can read Watchmen.

    She looks fab.

    When are we going to get some set pics of her? Is she also going to dye her hair dark brown?

    Maybe she will wear a wig? This was shot quite recently, so it doesn't look as if she dyed her hair.

    Can’t wait to see what she’ll be wearing for the film. And looking forward to interactions with Michael Douglas.

    About time we got a shot of La Pfeiffer on set. I imagine they'll be using that de-aging CGI for these 80's inspired scenes.
