I love nothing the way I love a good story.
The fact that Evangeline Lilly is playing a character named Hope Van Dyne—the daughter of Janet Van Dyne—is enough to get mad about. Unless you really think that an 80 year old Janet Van Dyne is going to join the Avengers as the Wasp?
The Wasp, an incredibly important character and a crucial member of the Avengers, has been relegated to being a possibly unseen side character in “Ant-Man,” one that can’t fulfill the same vital role in the MCU that she fills in the comics. That much is true, and it’s enough to be bummed about.
And yeah, it’s entirely possible that Hope will become the Wasp. I’d actually bet good money that that will happen. But it’s not the same; it’s a trope, and a very depressing one.
Yeah this shit is bothering me. Why can’t we have Janet Van Dyne?
