Ant-Man and The Wasp is set to be the next release after the hit Avengers: Infinity War. While the film has almost reached its release date but we know nothing about the film’s villain – Ghost. While the film does have a part where Ant-Man and the Wasp (Ant-Man and The Wasp Theory) try to rescue the original Wasp from the Quantum Realm but in what state will the Janet be is still unclear. Janet has spent almost thirty years inside the Quantum Realm, and it’s not clear what effect it’s had on her. It’s possible that Marvel’s big twist when it comes to Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the reveal that Janet van Dyne has become a villain.
We naturally don’t know much about what role Janet will have in Ant-Man and the Wasp(Ant-Man and The Wasp Theory), but with Michelle Pfeiffer cast in the role we know that the original Wasp is in the story. Scott Lang is the key to rescuing Janet in the film, as he receives some sort of signal that she’s still alive. Hank, Hope and Lang, together they’ll journey to the Quantum Realm and explore it more fully than in the first movie. It’s assumed they’ll then encounter Janet, who has somehow gained new items of clothing, altered her suit, and been nourishing herself somehow all these years.
Janet may have changed during her course of living in the quantum realm and movie will have to certainly address this. On asking questions about how Janet has aged and survived the Realm will be answered in the movie, but when questions were asked about how her thirty years of isolation has changed Janet, the Marvel secrecy crept in and the answer to the question was that Janet may have become a little weird but in the end, they are one happy family once again. Though Ghost was assumed to be the big villain in the film, all involved with the movie have pointed out that she’s really one antagonist. In fact, it’s been said the team will face many obstacles and antagonists in the movie. Clearly, there’s something more to Ghost than it was at first assumed.
Janet’s time in the Quantum Realm could have easily driven her mad. Likewise, it may have changed her ideology or even turn up against Hank. Any of these could see her emerge as a villain, or at least else another antagonist. But if this happens, there will be a problem that Marvel has to take care of – Redemption of the original Wasp.
The whole Ant-Man franchise goes along the path of redemption with Scott Lang and the others redeeming in the end even if Janet turns out to be an antagonist we should see Janet redeeming herself. Also, Pfeiffer is set to appear in Avengers 4, after all. So, we should see her coming back to her old self in the film even if she goes off the doing good line and actually turns out to be the antagonist.
