A sequel to “Ant-Man,” the 2015 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same name, is in the works, with Paul Rudd back to star, and Peyton Reed back to direct from a script Rudd and Gabriel Ferrari.

Titled “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” Evangeline Lilly will star as The Wasp next to Rudd’s Ant-Man.

We can now add British actress Hannah John-Kamen to the movie’s cast; according to Variety, the actress has signed up to play a “key role” in “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” although details on what the role is aren’t public information at this time; neither is what the film’s plot will be. So it’s up to you Marvel Universe experts to begin speculating on who exactly (a “key role”) John-Kamen has been cast to play.

The actress can currently be seen leading Syfy’s “Killjoys,” and most recently joined the cast of MGM and Warner Bros’ “Tomb Raider.” She also has a lead role in Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” film adaptation.

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” is scheduled to be released on July 6, 2018.
