EW has learned that Hannah John-Kamen has joined the cast of Marvel superhero sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp in an unknown role. The British actress’s previous credits include the TV shows Misfits and Black Mirror.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is the sequel to 2015’s Ant-Man, which starred Paul Rudd as the thief-turned-superhero Scott Lang, Michael Douglas as scientist Hank Pym, and Evangeline Lilly as Pym’s daughter, Hope van Dyne. All three are returning for Ant-Man and the Wasp, in which it is expected that Lilly’s character will adopt the latter alter-ego that’s name-checked in the title.
News of John-Kamen’s casting was first reported by Variety.
In 2015, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed told EW that he intended to take the sequel in unexpected directions. “I think we’ve established these characters and, as a moviegoer, I really want to see that happens to these characters,” said the filmmaker. “We’re going to take the second movie into some very unexpected directions.”
Ant-Man and the Wasp is released July 6, 2017.
