Laurence Fishburne cast in Marvel's 'Ant-Man And The Wasp,' Hannah John-Kamen confirmed as Ghost

July 23 2017

Not only do they have Samuel L. Jackson, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to welcome another heavyweight into the fold.


At San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, it was revealed that Laurence Fishburne is joining the cast of Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp as Dr. Bill Foster. Foster is also known as Black Gloiath, a brilliant scientist who works with Henry "Hank" Pym (Michael Douglas in the MCU), and has the ability to grow in size.

Hannah John-Kamen, who we knew from before was cast in the movie in a "key role" has been revealed to be "Ghost." In the Marvel Comics, the character (who is male) is mostly known as a foe of Iron Man, but in a lot of the canon is more so an anti-hero. She very well could be the central villain. John-Kamen is most known for her role in Killjoys. 

We also learned Michelle Pfifer has been cast Janet van Dyne, the mother of Hope van Dyne / Wasp (Evangeline Lilly).

In the comics, Janet was the original Wasp and the first wife of the original Ant-Man Hank. At one point, she was the chairman of The Avengers.

We learned a few months ago that T.I. would be returning from the first film as Dave, a member of Ant-Man's crew.

The film is due in theaters July 2018.
