In the comic book world, Janet Van Dyne aka The Wasp, is the romantic interest and eventual wife of fellow Avenger, Ant-Man. It seems that a rumor has surfaced that Rashida Jones will be playing Janet Van Dyne in the new Ant-Man movie. Janet will not take on her superhero alter-ego in this movie, but perhaps sometime down the road she will suit up and join the Avengers.
We’ve already announced that the role of Henry Pym aka Ant-Man will go to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Paul Rudd, or another unnamed contender. Ant-Man, directed by Edgar Wright, is set for release after The Avengers 2 in 2015.
