Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp is a film all about father and daughter relationships -- even more so than we thought. While the sequel to Ant-Man already features a pair of father/daughter relationships in Scott Lang and his daughter Cassie and Hope Pym and her father Hank, it now appears like we have a third one to consider as well.
During Monday night's red carpet premiere of Ant-Man and the Wasp, actor Laurence Fishburne revealed in an interview that his character Bill Foster has a surprising connection with the film's villain, the mysterious Ghost. "I have this sort of surrogate daughter, this character called Ghost, played by Hannah John-Kamen, who is incredible," the actor said. "We have a sort of father/daughter thing going on."
Seeing as how there is very little we actually know of Ghost, this bit of information is incredibly revealing. Not only does it give us a bit on an idea as to who this character is, it also confirms that Fishburne's Bill Foster might be playing more of an antagonistic role than we thought. In the comics, Foster is the alter ego of the superhero Goliath. However, in the film, Fishburne went on to confirm that he has an intellectual rivalry with Hank Pym.
This by no means confirms that Foster will be an all-out villain in the film, but it definitely complicates matters and makes us all the more intrigued about the film.
Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man and The Wasp stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, Randall Park, and Walton Goggins. The film arrives in theaters on July 6.
