Ant-Man & The Wasp: Cast, Character & Comic Connections Guide

The New Villain

Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost - The mysterious Ghost steps into the sequel to become the latest foe for Ant-Man and Wasp. While Ghost was a male character in the comics, Ant-Man and The Wasp cast Killjoys star Hannah John-Kamen in the role. She maintains her intangibility powers and wants access to the Quantum Realm herself, leading to the conflict with the heroes. There may be more to her than meets the eye, which could make her ties to the story even stronger.

New Characters With Comic Ties

Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne - Janet hasn't been seen or heard from since going subatomic in 1987, having been been lost in the Quantum Realm ever since. Scott's ability to return from there in the first movie reignites a search to find her. If they do, they'll bring Pfeiffer into her second comic book movie role, after previously playing Catwoman in Batman Returns. With Janet being an original member of the Avengers in the comics, it's about time she makes it to the big screen.

Laurence Fishburne as Bill Foster/Goliath - A longtime friend to Hank in the comics, some connection exists between them in the sequel. He helped work on Project Goliath in the past and grew to a personal best 21 feet. Fishburne's also jumping from the world of DC, where he plays Perry White, to Marvel once again, as he previously voiced Silver Surfer in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch - Goggins joins the MCU to bring Sonny Burch into the picture. He was a chairman of Cross Technologies in the comics, so if that is the same for the film, he's got an understandable gripe with Ant-Man and his team. After all, they wiped away Cross Technologies' new building in the first film. It could be up to Sonny to try and keep the company alive.

Randall Park as Jimmy Woo - Someone has to try and keep tabs on Scott while he's on house arrest, and that task has been given to Jimmy Woo. He's a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in the comics, but that doesn't appear to have translated to the big screen. An FBI agent for the purposes of the sequel, he may have a difficult time keeping Scott's whereabouts straight.
