Ant-Man and The Wasp's Michelle Pfeiffer Says She's Having A 'Really Hard Time' Reading Comics
Michelle Pfeiffer, who's playing Janet van Dyne in Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp, recently talked about her role in the film, saying that she's having a "really hard time" reading the comics for research.
During an interview with Variety, Pfeiffer admitted that reading the Marvel comics was confusing to her. "I just started reading them, and I’m having a really hard time,” Pfeiffer said. "There’s so much information on a page, and it’s not linear. When I’m skim-reading them it’s difficult to know that this part comes after that and who is talking in what bubble."
Her character is the original Wasp, the mother of Hope (Evangeline Lilly) and wife of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). This will be her first superhero role since playing Catwoman in Batman Returns.
Pfeiffer also talked about the reason she accepted the role. She said that she enjoyed the first Ant-Man movie's "great sense of humor" and "unusual tone". She also said that the sequel's script "has the same thing" and is "nicely written".
Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man and The Wasp also stars Paul Rudd, Laurence Fishburne, Walton Goggins, and Hannah John-Kamen. It's set to release in theaters on July 6, 2018.
