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.

Kenneth Branagh’s take on an Agatha Christie classic.
Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in Agatha Christie’s ‘Murder on the Orient Express‘. With an exhaustive star-studded cast featuring Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz, Willem Defoe, Daisy Ridley, Judi Dench, Olivia Coleman and Josh Gad, this one scarcely needs any persuasion from me.
Fresh from ‘Logan‘ and ‘Alien Covenant‘, and awaiting the big screen arrival of ‘Blade Runner 2049‘; writer Michael Green adapts Agatha Christie’s detective novel for this motion picture retelling.
Strangers onboard the Orient Express each find themselves a suspect as their sumptuous train journey unravels into an enthralling murder mystery. Hercule Poirot, ‘probably the greatest detective in the world’ must solve this villainous crime before the culprit kills again.
Our appetites are sufficiently whet as the trailer neatly introduces us to Poirot’s suspects, a very pleasing first-person sequence hints nicely to some interesting cinematography, and rounds up everything we can expect from ‘Murder on the Orient Express‘ in a rather tidy bundle.
‘Murder on the Orient Express’ is scheduled to take to UK cinemas on 3rd November 2017.
