Michelle Pfeiffer is headed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe - and it sounds like she's pretty excited about her role.
In a recent interview with Variety, Pfeiffer teased her new role as Janet Van Dyne in Ant-Man and the Wasp. As she revealed, she signed on to do the project after seeing the original Ant-Man film.
“It had this great sense of humor about it and just this unusual tone,” Pfeiffer revealed. “This new script has the same thing. It’s nicely written.”
With Janet have a pretty expansive Marvel Comics tenure as The Wasp, Pfeiffer hinted that she's doing research for the role - but it's proving to be a little difficult.
"I just started reading them, and I’m having a really hard time." Pfeiffer explained. "There’s so much information on a page, and it’s not linear. When I’m skim reading them it’s difficult to know that this part comes after that and who is talking in what bubble."
But judging by early updates, Pfeiffer won't have too much trouble entering the world of Ant-Man and the Wasp. With Janet currently lost in the Quantum Realm, after she went sub-atomic to disarm a Soviet missile in the 1980s, the sequel is set to address her return in a pretty interesting way. And once she does, she'll be reunited with her onscreen daughter, Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lily), who sounded pretty excited about Pfeiffer's casting earlier this year.
