The movie's new story details explain that they are in a quest to rescue Janet van Dyne, Hope's mother and scientist Hank Pym's wife, from Quantum Realm. Quantum Realm is a place where Janet disappeared decades ago. It is also a place from which Scott escaped in the first movie.
"Scott entered the Quantum Realm in the first film and came back, which is something they thought was impossible," reveals Evangeline Lilly, who portrays Hope. "The question has arisen, 'Can Janet come back?' So the entire film, my character is hell-bent on finding a way to get into the Quantum Realm and bring her back."
Following the story details, movie director Peyton Reed reveals that main villain in the movie is Ghost. Ghost is a male character in Marvel comic universe, but Peyton casts a female star as the character. "The Ghost character could be male, female, anything, so it just seemed more interesting to us [to cast a woman]," says Peyton. "Ghost's primary power is the ability to 'phase,' which allows Ghost to move through solid matter. She has all sorts of strange versions of that phasing power-it proves quite difficult for Ant-Man and Wasp to deal with."
In addition to Evangeline, "Batman Returns" actress Michelle Pfeiffer joins the cast, playing Janet. "She hasn't done one of these films since she played Catwoman with Tim Burton," Peyton says. "It was really interesting to bring her in and get her up to speed on all the mythology and her place in this world."
Paul Rudd reprises his role as Ant-Man. Joining the cast are Michael Douglas who plays the scientist, Michael Pena who portrays member of Scott's crew Luis and Hannah John-Kamen who is cast as Ghost. There are also Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip "T.I." Harris, David Dastmalchian, Laurence Fishburne, Abby Ryder Fortson and Randall Park.
Peyton directs the movie based on script penned by Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Paul, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.
"Ant-Man and the Wasp" is due out on July 6 in the United States.
