Amidst the very stellar reviews for the Mummy, Universal’s first installment in the soon-to-be rival shared universe of the MCU, Dark Universe, Variety just released this exclusive scoop saying that Hannah John-Kamen has joined Ant-Man and the Wasp in a key urole. Hannah is currently most known in her guest stints in shows like Black Mirror and Game of Thrones. Her future films include Steven Spielberg‘s Ready Player One and the much-awaited reboot adaptation of Tomb Raider.
Variety added that Marvel has been meeting with actresses in the past month before “finally being won over by the rising star.” The role is currently unknown so it’s any of us fanboys’ guess on who she is. Off the top of our heads, Janet Van Dyne is the name easiest to recall but given the actress’ ethnicity and Evangeline Lilly’s, it may not be the case. Other options is that she could be playing a new supporting character for the film. Maybe a new addition to the wombat squad we all love with Luis and his crew. Or even better, a new villain. Regardless, we’re excited to see her in the MCU. We can’t wait for what they have in store for us with Hannah.
