Marvel Studios Needs The Wasp!

In a matter of months, moviegoers will see Marvel's tiniest hero, Ant-Man,  take center stage on the big screen. The movie stars the Paul Rudd as Scott Lang who becomes the new Ant-Man; and with the help of his predecessor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) they plan a heist that will save Hank's company as well as the world. Though some remain skeptical about this movie, many have warmed up to the blockbuster thanks to Ant-Man's full trailer. While the movie is just two months, there is plenty of room for speculation. 

While comic fans and moviegoers will see Ant-Men and a new interpretation of Yellowjacket in this film, there is a crucial character missing in action. That character is none other then Wasp. Thanks to Hank Pym genetically altering her with Pym Particles, Janet Van Dyne gained the powers to shrink and grow wings. Since becoming the Wasp in the comics, Janet has been a major partner for Ant-Man, and she is noted for being among the first Avengers. As most know by now Janet Van Dyne will not be appearing in Ant-Man. Instead we will be getting the character Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) who is the daughter of Hank and Janet. So unless we get a flashback scene, seeing Janet as the Wasp in this movie is unlikely. However, there is still a chance for this heroine to make an impact in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I believe the presence of Wasp is very much needed.
