In a recent interview with IGN, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that we will indeed see Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp character at some point within Phase III of the MCU. However from the comments that were made, it seems that will not be in next May’s Captain America: Civil War. While this may not be ideal or what we want to hear, we can still be happy about the rest of the cast that will be in that movie.
Kevin Feige had this to say about when Wasp would come back, “We definitely have the plans and know when we’re going to do it. We’re going to do it when it can be more than just a cameo. When we can actually tell the story of the Wasp and see her in that for nearly the first time. And get Ant-Man & Wasp in action together in a significant way.” Later he did confirm that it will happen in Phase III.
The big question seems to be how Wasp will make her return. Will Marvel announce another Ant-Man movie for Phase III or will they take time to show Wasp in another already scheduled movie. Looking at the Marvel lineup of movies for Phase III it is hard to pick which movie she would come back for because she just does not seem to fit in any of them. We know that she’ll most likely be in at least one of the Avengers: Infinity War movies but I don’t think Marvel will want to use any of the time in those movies to introduce Wasp. I could be wrong though.
What do you think? When will we see Wasp again? In another Phase III movie or in a solo Ant-Man movie? Or, we will get a solo Wasp movie? That seems to be a bit more of a stretch but anything could happen.
