Michelle Pfeiffer will play Janet van Dyne in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ – Mashable

Marvel kicked off its San Diego Comic-Con panel with some typically awesome news — Michelle Pfeiffer has been tapped to play Janet van Dyne, the first Wasp and mother of Janet van Dyne.

“She was our dream choice when making the first film,” Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige admitted during the panel, expressing his disbelief that they actually managed to cast the former Catwoman.

The news was announced via an adorable video hosted by Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd and Michael Peña, which recapped the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe up to this point — with plenty of snark from Rudd and Peña about their rivals (at one point, recapping The Avengers, they referred to Hawkeye as Alan Alda). 

Also announced during the panel, Killjoys star Hannah John-Kamen will play Ghost, Walton Goggins will portray Sonny Burch, Randall Park plays Jimmy Woo and Laurence Fishburne will appear as Dr. Bill Foster. 

Marvel fans will know that Bill Foster’s alter ego is the superhero known as Goliath. The character was created by Stan Lee and Don Heck in 1966. Like Ant-Man, he’s able to manipulate his size and mass, and was initially introduced as the lab assistant of Hank Pym in the comics, later going on to investigate the apparent deaths of Hank and Janet.
