The character is played by Hannah John-Kamen, and is the main antagonist of the film. But recently we got a major spoiler for the character of The Ghost

Warning: Major Ant-Man and the Wasp Spoiler Ahead! Proceed at your own discretion!
Laurence let out a very interesting Ant-Man and The Wasp spoiler and a very significant one during his conversation about the film. He said that the character he plays – Bill Foster is related to the main antagonist of the film, The Ghost.
“I have this sort of surrogate daughter, this character called Ghost played by Hannah John-Kamen who’s incredible, and we sort of have a father-daughter thing going on too,” Fishburne said.
This is big spoiler and it fits right into the plot of the film. In the film, Foster worked with Pym on Goliath project back when they worked together, maybe like Pym, he may also be working in shadows on a technology that he pioneered.
The villain of the film – Ghost, is a classic comic book villain adapted to the MCU. Up till now, we only know that she wears a suit much same as the character had in the comics and is played by Hannah John-Kamen. Her powers are pretty much the same as that were in the comics – Ghost can slip through objects and become intangible. Also, her suits allows to become invisible to naked eyes. Why Foster’s daughter after receiving the power went rogue is still a mystery, but in comics The Ghost is a hacker who has only one aim – to take down big corporations. Will this be a reason is still unknown. Ant-Man and the Wasps poiler opens up another question – Can the Ghost be redeemed to join the heroes’ side? As per the history of the characters in the Ant-Man and the Wasp franchisee goes, redemption is the heart of the franchisee.
The official summary of the film says that – “In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.”
Also we know that the rescuing Janet van Dyne will also be a main mission of the Ant-Man, so going by the summary and the information we have, there’s no way of telling that if Janet van Dyne acts as antagonist or not as per the rumours. But we still know that Ghost is the daughter of Foster, Thanks to Laurence Fishburne.
