SPOILER ALERT! This article contains a MAJOR SPOILER from ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’, so if you don’t want to know, back away now!
Laurence Fishburne should know better! While walking the red carpet at the premiere of his newest movie, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’, he was bombarded with questions from reporters, but maybe he didn’t get the memo from Marvel that he wasn’t to reveal major plot details especially when fans won’t get to see the movie for another week!
Fishburne plays Doctor Bill Foster in the latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the film, Foster is revealed to have worked with Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym in the past on Project: Goliath, a research initiative that dealt with size-manipulation and eventually to Pym’s perfection of the process leading to a brief and secret career as Ant-Man– a career he has long since abandoned that he turned over to Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) in the first ‘Ant-Man’. It seems the idea of passing family trades down from one generation to the next is a theme when it comes to these movies, as Evangeline Lilly‘s character, Hope Van Dyne, adopts her mother Janet’s (Michelle Pfeiffer) identity as the Wasp in this movie. And it appears that Scott’s daughter, Cassie will eventually adopt the role of Stature.
According to Fishburne, Bill Foster also has a legacy to hand down, to a very interesting heir:
“I have this sort of surrogate daughter, this character called Ghost played by Hannah John-Kamen, who’s incredible. And we sort of have a father/daughter thing going on.”
Uh oh! While we knew that Ghost, the antagonist of the picture, was somehow using Pym technology to commit her crimes, we didn’t know how she got it. Now it would seem that maybe it’s rightfully hers, although the way in which she chooses to use it may be illegal. It’s also possible that she may have a motive stronger than petty greed and like more recent, well-rounded Marvel villains like Erik Killmonger and, even Thanos, she may be trying to accomplish what she truly believes is the greater good. (But that’s just a guess.)
If you skipped past the spoiler alert, what do you think? Does knowing that Ava/Ghost is Bill Foster’s surrogate daughter ruin the movie before you’ve seen it?
‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ opens on July 6.
