And yet, Pfeiffer loves that the Burton sequel still holds up against the dozens of modern superhero movies. “It was all Tim Burton,” she says. “He was able to bring this heart and darkness and humor to it.”


Definitely head over to Variety to read the rest of the profile, where Pfeiffer talks about her absence from the big screen, why she came back for Ant-Man and the Wasp, and her difficulty in reading comic books. Actually, we’ve gotta let you read that quote now.

“I just started reading them, and I’m having a really hard time,” Pfeiffer said. “There’s so much information on a page, and it’s not linear. When I’m skim reading them it’s difficult to know that this part comes after that and who is talking in what bubble.”

Ant-Man and the Wasp is scheduled for release July 6, 2018.
