Michelle Pfeiffer played Catwoman back in 1992 with Batman Returns, and now she’s transitioned from the DC universe to Marvel territory with Ant-Man and the Wasp. She plays Janet Van Dyne, the mother of Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and soulmate of Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) who was originally thought to have died. The sequel, however, suggests that Janet is actually alive and in limbo!
“My character many years ago got stuck in the Quantum Realm,” said Pfeiffer And Hope and Hank set out to find her. I think they’ve never given up hope that she is still alive and so throughout the film it’s really their journey and their struggle and their journey to get back to bring her back.
