Is Hope van Dyne ready to take the reins of Earth's Mightiest Heroes?
With Ant-Man and the Wasp hitting theatres next week, the internet is abuzz (pun intended) with anticipation. Early reviews (including ours) have praised the film for being smart, funny, and a great showcase for the newest Avenger, Hope van Dyne aka The Wasp. In an interview with Nerdist's Markeia McCarty, the cast and crew discuss The Wasp and her potential for taking on a leadership role in the post-Snapture Avengers.Read More

The Wasp hasn't been in any Avengers movies before now, in spite of having been a founding member of the team in the original comics. She'll be on the team eventually. Like, years from now. But it's happening.Read More
In the wake of the unprecedented success of the R-rated Deadpool, as well as the announcement of an R-rated edition of Batman v Superman, superhero movie directors have begun to jokingly suggest they'll follow suit in their future projects.Read More
You don't need anything beyond this right now. Just unmute this Vine and allow yourself to take it all in--everything from the undeniable moves to that fixed stare right at the end. (We're so transfixed that we didn't even notice the younger Hemsworth making a brief cameo appearance.)Read More

It’s about damn time.
We were pretty disappointed that Evangeline Lilly's Hope Van Dyne was needlessly sidelined in Ant-Man in favor of making another movie about a male superhero. Despite our dismay over the Captain Marvel movie's repeated delays, we're glad to see the Wasp finally get to do her thing—and get acknowledged in the sequel's title—and so is director Peyton Reed.Read More
"Haters gonna hate." -Marvel
Marvel isn't having any of this "superhero movies will die out" business, and to prove it, they're adding an Ant-Man sequel and some unannounced mystery projects to their upcoming "phase 3" movie slate.Read More
The cringe-worthy page above comes courtesy of a piece over at Comic Book Resources today that describes Spider-Man's regrettable "Clone Saga" storyline written in 1995. In issue #266, Peter Parker accidentally hits Mary Jane while in the midst of a fight with his clone.Read More
Lookin' fly, girl.
We don't see much of The Wasp in Ant-Man, but we might have seen a different side of her had the costume designers gone with their original vision for her.Read More
I definitely thought this was a fan-made poster when I first saw it but I am so glad to report it is 100% Marvel official.Read More
Look at that art! Not to be left out after DC announced twenty-four new titles this morning (including Black Canary!), Marvel decided to make a "game-changing" new series announcement of their own this morning.Read More
"This movie should have been called 'The Wasp.'"
I mean really, even if she doesn't turn out to be The Wasp, that face says it all.Read More
Bob's your daughter.
The Wasp, aka Janet van Dyne, is of course that founding member of the Avengers whom we’ve heard will be retroactively fridged in Ant-Man. Evangeline Lilly’s playing her daughter Hope Van Dyne, who looks like she could be shaping up as the MCU version of that character. So Janet had to be killed in the first place because... nah. I'm in the state of not wanting to think about Ant-Man anymore. Just gonna leave these here:Read More
My Spidey Sense Is Tingling
Joss Whedon has been pretty up front about how initial drafts of The Avengers featured Janet Van Dyne, aka The Wasp, as a seventh member of the team. Federico D'Alessandro, whose IMDB page shows art department credits on Marvel Entertainment movies from Thor onward, as well as I Am Legend and two Narnia movies, has recently shared some animatics he produced while working on the early stages of The Avengers, including this one, which gives us but the briefest look at Janet, at 0:17 and in the oft used in marketing "look at all the team members" spin. We've posted three more of his animatics behind the jump!Read More
