An obscure Marvel villain known as the Ghost will also be a part of the movie and will be portrayed by Hannah John-Kamen of Black Mirror, according to The Verge.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Janet van Dyne was the original iteration of the Wasp and superhero partner to her husband, Hank Pym aka the original Ant-Man, before she was lost inside a microscopic quantum realm and believed dead.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will see the return of Rudd as Ant-Man and Michael Douglas as Pym. In the comics, Ghost is actually a male and typically featured as an adversary for Iron Man.

In Marvel's comic books, the van Dyne character is the original Wasp and a founding member - and onetime leader - of the Avengers.
