RUMOR: Front-Runner For ANT-MAN's Wasp Revealed?
According to questionable sources, a Parks and Recreation actress, who has starred opposite Ant-Man contender Paul Rudd, has surfaced as Marvel's "top pick" for Janet Van Dyne AKA The Wasp.
Since director Edgar Wright took to Twitter this month to announce his return to pre-production on Ant-Man, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd have been reported has front-runners for the title role. But now there's potential casting surrounding the supporting role of Janet Van Dyne, better known as The Wasp. According to questionable sources of Superhero Movie News, who were apparently informed of Paul Rudd's involvement early on, Parks and Recreation's Rashida Jones has topped Marvel's shortlist for Janet Van Dyne in light of her “chemistry with the other actors.” It's worth noting that Jones has starred opposite Paul Rudd in I, Love You Man and My Idiot Brother.
Also, Superhero Movie News further quote their source(s) on Edgar Wright's plans for The Wasp in the Ant-Man adaptation: “Janet would [only] be a love interest and a major supporting character, we would see multiple references to her future as The Wasp throughout the film.” Again, we don't know how reliable these sources are considering they don't exactly have a track record for breaking news, other than the Justice League: Mortal script. But what do you think?
Anyhow, Edgar Wright directs Ant-Man from his screenplay, co-written Joe Cornish. With filming scheduled to take place very soon in England, the film is slated for release on July 31, 2015.
