It’s learned early drafts of Captain America: Civil War included the Wasp.
Wasp was revealed in the Ant-Man movie, first as Janet Pym in the microverse scene, and then Han Pym gave the Wasp suit to Hope in the mid-credit scene.
While Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige recently revealed Wasp will be a big part of an upcoming movie, it’s learned it won’t be Captain America: Civil War.
“She was included in early versions of [Captain America: Civil War] but there are so many characters in Civil War that we didn’t want to do her a disservice, like she flies in, ‘I’ve got the costume now’, and she flies out,” Feige told SlashFilm.
Feige continues with confirmation Ant-Man will be in Civil War, as well as that Wasp will be featured in Marvel’s Phase 3 plans.
“With Ant-Man, and I’m not saying thats what Ant-Man does in the movie, but we already know him, we’ve already seen him,” Feige offered. “We haven’t seen her as Wasp and we don’t want to rob the opportunity of seeing her in the outfit for at least almost the first time, and seeing her dynamic with Scott in a way it could play out, so we’re saving it. But its going to be in Phase three for sure.”
“Ant-Man” is currently playing in theaters, and “Captain America: Civil War” hits May 6, 2016.
