    Her(and possibly her dad) calling the shots(depending on what the mission is:Heist=Scott) actually makes the most sense since she taught him how to use the suit and powers.

    They are never going to make a Hope/Wasp movie.

    It's disappointing that Janet will never be a significant part of the MCU.

    Well, that depends. Are we talking significant as in she won't be Wasp, or do you mean she won't have a major role? In Ant-Man, Pym says "Is it possible?" when thinking about Janet after Scott escaped the quantum realm, so if they play that up next film, maybe she will either be freed from it or something. We don't know at this stage if they will try and factor Janet into the sequel (should one happen). I am betting they may.

    Even though Ant-Man did well, I doubt there'll be a sequel for him. I see him working in the cast, along with Wasp, in The Avengers films, just no more solo stuff, I'd say.

    I personally think a Wasp film with Ant-Man tagging along could be cool. But how do you not make it a retread of Ant-Man? How to entertain the audience with a shrinking hero again? Entertain those that loved it yet still felt it was a Iron Man-esque character and setup? I get a new story and a new villain will be peoples' answers, but me thinks audiences are just too superficial. Then again, superficiality gets butts in seats. I dunno. I just didn't feel the love for Ant-Man from the public like I did with other Marvel flicks. Seemed like many didn't go to see it. Which box-office says they didn't.

    Ant-Man did well for an obscure character's first venture in live action on the big screen but hopefully a sequel with both Ant-Man & Wasp could improve on that to be even more successful.

    Good call. More recently "Edge of tomorrow" followed a similar idea. Blunt and Cruise characters could have been inter-changeable.
    Call the sequel "Antman and Wasp". Get her name on the poster, and give her equal screen time. Make it more of a Bonnie and Clyde, super hero romance.

    I'd actually be on board with this. We know that Fox can use Taskmaster but I'm not sure if his rights are exclusive. MODOK is an Avengers level villain and if he's used in a solo, I'd rather it be Captain Marvel or Hulk to adapt the Lightning Storm or Fall of the Hulks stories (but preferably Avengers: Taking AIM). Egghead is really the only one left but he's not the most interesting villain.

    Wasp has Whirlwind. There. A plot for a woman fending off her stalking ex-boyfriend. That's a story. It has a villain. He's not too obscure. Wasp actually would work for a spin-off and would be far better than an Ant-Man sequel.

    what was the point of your post? This comes 2 years too late and long after everyone has learned where they are going with the characters

    It feels like we’ve been waiting forever to see the Wasp to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    There’s definitely been a Janet sized hole in the marvel u so far. I’m so glad she’s in because it feels more like the marvel u now.

    Although I’m a tad sad we won’t see fashion designer jan because she was so fabulous lol. Then again so is Phfeiffer
