Ant-Man And The Wasp Director Teases Ghost’s Future In The MCU


It seems we haven’t seen the last of Hannah John-Kamen’s Ghost in the MCU.

Just yesterday, for instance, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige addressed the character’s future beyond Ant-Man and the Wasp, before hinting that, yes, there’s a good chance that John-Kamen will appear for another MCU installment.

The finer details of Ghost’s second coming – when, where, how… that kind of thing – are being kept locked up in the Marvel vaults, but as Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed tells CBR, this is a figure with a ton of potential due to the ambiguous nature of her own character arc.

She could go kind of in any direction at this point. It’ll be interesting to see is she, you know, will she become a villain or is she an ally? Is this cure permanent or not? I like that open-endedness and we definitely have ideas of what we want to do.

Once the credits rolled on Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Janet Van Dyne had been safely rescued from the Quantum Realm, it was revealed that Scott Lang and Hope had decided to help Ghost overcome her dilemma, eventually leading to the post-credits scene in which three of the film’s core cast are reduced to ash as part of Thanos’ snap of doom.

And Ant-Man? He’s been cast astray in the Quantum Realm, though given Marvel’s love of foreshadowing, we imagine that that time vortex will have something to do with his inevitable escape – or, failing that, the moment when he crosses paths with Captain Marvel.

Ghost, on the other hand, is all but guaranteed another MCU role – the question, really, is when. And at least according to Reed, she may well adopt a similar role to the Winter Soldier, who was successfully redeemed in time for Avengers: Infinity War.

In this case, the story was always – spoiler! – to keep her around. This was not the story of defeating a villain and everybody cheering. This is a different kind of villain story. When and where – in the tag, he mentions ‘his new Ghost friend’ – is something we’ll see.

Ant-Man and the Wasp has been playing across U.S. theaters since Friday and already, it’s helped nudge the MCU past the $17 billion dollar mark.
