Michelle Pfeiffer joins Ant-Man and the Wasp as Janet van Dyne

Ant-man and wasp

The announcement was made Saturday, July 22 at San Diego Comic-Con during Marvel Studios' Hall H panel. And when it comes to pimping their new movies, they do it with flare, style and comedy.

Along with Pfeiffer, the other huge name that will be joining Ant-Man 2 is Laurence Fishburne.

But the biggest news is undoubtedly that Michelle Pfeiffer will be taking on the role of Janet van Dyne, the original Wasp.

And she wasn't the only person announced for the movie, with Laurence Fishburne listed as playing Dr. Bill Foster (AKA shape-changing character Goliath in the comics). With Ant-Man and the Wasp not hitting theaters until July 6, 2018, it is likely that there will be plenty of additional information shared along the way, including first looks and trailers.

Also revealed on Saturday: A character called the Ghost will be in the film. As we already reported on, the Thor: Ragnarok trailer was debuted for the first time, but there's still no sign of the Avengers: Infinity War making its way online yet.

UPDATE: Chief of Staff Reince Priebus , a longtime colleague of Spicer's, is reportedly furious with Scaramucci's appointment . Scaramucci endorsed Scott Walker and then Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential election before joining Trump's campaign.

Lily plays the Wasp, whose costume was previously previewed during a post-credits scene from the original Ant-Man involving Michael Douglas' Hank Pym and his daughter, Hope van Dyne.

Whew - that's a lot of heavy hitters being added into Ant-Man and the Wasp in one day!

New cast members listed for the Ant-Man sequel include Randall Park, Hannah John-Kamen, and Walton Goggins. He was also exposed to Pym's Pym Particles, and became Black Goliath (and also sometimes went by Giant Man).

More recently, Fishburne has had a supporting role at Marvel's rival studio DC, playing Daily Planet editor Perry White in 2013's Man of Steel and last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
