ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Star Hannah John-Kamen Is Staying Quiet About Ghost's MCU Future
Reflecting on her experience in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Ghost in Ant-Man and The Was, Hannah John-Kamen remains surprisingly tight-lipped when asked when we could see the character again...
2018's Ant-Man and The Wasp introduced us to Ava Starr, a.k.a. Ghost. Despite being portrayed as a villain for a big chunk of the movie, we soon learned that she was a sympathetic character and someone who was in desperate need of redemption. She found that (to an extent) with the help of Janet Van Dyne, but her fate was left up in the air after the Blip left Scott Lang trapped in the Quantum Realm.
He was there to retrieve the energy needed to cure Ghost, but with no word on the character being part of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, her MCU future remains a mystery.
The Hollywood Reporter recently caught up with Hannah John-Kamen and asked how Ava is doing these days. "[Laughs] She's good. She’s very good. I won’t say anything more about her!" Clearly, the actress is hiding something, but what that is obviously remains to be seen.
When Ant-Man and The Wasp was released, some fans argued that Ghost was wasted in the sequel, but John-Kamen looks back at the experience with fondness. "Nothing beats my first day on set and just finally being there. Being in the room with all those movie stars and the sets and my costume, I look back at that and it was just the best experience. I couldn’t stop smiling and I was so welcomed. It was such a fun, free space to exercise the character."
"Everyone was amazing, but Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas and Laurence Fishburne really were my idols growing up," she continued. "I grew up with a lot of their movies, so it was definitely an honor. It was an honor to share a space, a scene and a camera with them."
If Marvel Studios is setting the stage for the Dark Avengers or Thunderbolts to assemble in the MCU, then it makes perfect sense for Ghost to be a member of that team. In the same interview, John-Kamen confirmed that she remains attached to the Red Sonja movie, so it could all depend on scheduling.
