The latest video from the set of Ant-Man & the Wasp shows Marvel's newest hero doing battle with the mysterious Ghost. During San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, the Ant-Man sequel made a big splash when Marvel announced the new actors and characters that will be appearing in the film. Along with the news that Michelle Pfeiffer is going to play Janet van Dyne and Laurence Fishburne will take on the role of Dr. Bill Foster, we learned that Hannah John-Kamen (Killjoys) is lined up for the villain Ghost.
In the comics, almost nothing is known about Ghost save the rogue's hatred of corporate greed and ability to pass through walls and turn invisible. The angle of an anti-corporate hacker who walks the line between villain and hero is an interesting one, but nothing else is known about how John-Kamen's version will reflect the comics. Yesterday, however, we received our first hint thanks to a set photo that reveals Ghost's costume. Now, we know she definitely won't be on the side of the heroes.
Noticias Geek TV posted a video from the set of Ant-Man & the Wasp, showing Ghost fighting with Hope van Dyne/The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly). It's from the same scene teased in the previously-released set photo of Ghost, though now we have a bit more context. In one take, we can see the Wasp holding onto some sort of box. However, it's not yet clear if Wasp is trying to protect the mysterious item or steal it from Ghost (or vice versa).
Another shot in the video shows Ant-Man's suit, so it's possible he'll also feature in this scene. Considering that Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is once again on the run from the law (post-Captain America: Civil War), it's not hard to imagine that he and Hope will resort to espionage and unlawful tactics again in the Ant-Man sequel. If that's the case, could Ghost merely be a hired hand who's protecting someone else's assets? Alternatively, Ghost's M.O. suggest she could be after something that belongs to Hank Pym, either for her boss or her own reasons.
With Ant-Man and the Wasp currently filming in Atlanta, we'll probably see a lot more behind-the-scenes images and footage soon. Already, we've been treated to other action-packed set videos, along with a screenshot of Evangeline Lilly in her new costume. We even got our best look yet at Ant-Man's new suit, thanks to a photo of Paul Rudd's stunt double on the movie's set.
Presumably, Ant-Man will appear in next year's Avengers: Infinity War before Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters a couple months later. Even if that turns out to not be the case, you can expect plenty more news regarding Ant-Man & the Wasp to arrive soon.
