According to Variety, actress Hannah John-Kamen (Killjoys, Black Mirror, Game of Thrones) has been cast in a key role in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp. The up-and-coming, 27-year-old British actress will next be seen as F’Nale Zandor in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, and as Sophie in the Tomb Raider reboot.
Production on the sequel is expected to begin in Atlanta, Georgia this July. Confirmed to return from the previous film are Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lily as Hope Pym, Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym, Michael Pena as Luis, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, and T.I. as Dave.
Peyton Reed will return to direct Ant-Man and the Wasp, which is written by Transformers: The Last Knight‘s Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari from a story by Academy Award winner Adam McKay (The Big Short) and star Paul Rudd.
“I think the only thing I can tell you with certainty at this point… is that it’s going to have stuff in it that you’ve never ever seen in a movie before,” director Peyton Reed previously teased about the forthcoming sequel.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is set for release on July 6, 2018.
