2018 is shaping up to be a banner year for the up-and-coming Hannah John-Kamen.
In the space of 12 short months, the one-time Black Mirror actress will appear in Tomb Raider, Ready Player One, and Marvel sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp, which will see her take on the gender-swapped role of Ghost in 2018.
Angled as one of the sequel’s chief baddies, there have been rumblings that John-Kamen’s villain will clash with Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), after the latter suits up as the Wasp in order to locate her wayward mother. Michelle Pfeiffer (Murder On the Orient Express) is on board to play Janet van Dyne, bringing Ant-Man and the Wasp‘s ensemble cast to a whole new level. She’s portraying the estranged spouse of Hank Pym, after all, who’s played once again by the great Michael Douglas.
Getting back to Ghost Vs. the Wasp, though, and a leaked set photo has emerged today that all but confirms that aforementioned brawl. Posted to Instagram and later pulled offline, this is the latest in a long line of set snaps from Ant-Man and the Wasp, after previous reveals brought us closer to Scott Lang’s remodeled super-suit and Evangeline Lilly kitted out as Hope van Dyne. And it looks like she’ll be putting that armor to good use come July.
Check out the pic in the gallery below along with a few that surfaced the other week.
In the comics, Ghost touts the ability to turn invisible and move through physical objects on a whim, which ought to lay the groundwork for a truly spectacular fight scene between her and the Wasp, given the latter’s tendency to alter size at any given moment.
Nine short weeks after the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Peyton Reed and Co. will unleash the “mind-blowing” Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6th, 2018. Closer to home, Marvel fans can look forward to the launch of Thor: Ragnarok on November 3rd.
