During their presentation in Hall H, Marvel confirmed that Michelle Pfeiffer will play the role of Janet Van Dyne, mother of Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and wife of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), who we saw briefly in a flashback scene during ‘Ant-Man’. Laurence Fishburne was also confirmed as a member of the cast, and is playing the role of Dr. Bill Foster, aka Goliath.
Also recently announced as members of the cast are Walton Goggins, whose character still remains unknown, and Randall Park who is confirmed to play S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jimmy Woo.
A new logo and some early concept art were shown during the presentation.
Peyton Reed, who directed the first film, is back in the director’s chair for the sequel which is currently slated for a July 2018 release.
