Michelle Pfeiffer is returning to the world of superheroes: because the Ant-Man sequel just got a second Wasp in the form of the original hero herself.

Pfeiffer’s casting as Janet, the original Wasp and mother to Hope Van Dyne in the movieverse, came at the conclusion of a goofy retrospective video of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, alongside a confirmation of several other major roles in the movie, which has just begun filming. Additional announced roles include:

  • Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, a.k.a. Giant Man
  • Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost
  • Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo
  • Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch
