Hope Van Dyne was a central character in Ant-Man, but audiences never got to see her suit-up as the Wasp - though the film did debut the suit she'd theoretically wear alongside Ant-Man. Now, director Peyton Reed says the look itself is still a work in progress, as is the Wasp's crimefighting personality, both of which will be on display in Ant-Man & The Wasp.

"I'm just personally excited to get to introduce yet another character into the Marvel Universe," Reed told MovieFone. "After Ant-Man, now we get to see Wasp, so really designing her look, the way she moves, the power set, and figuring out, sort of, who Hope van Dyne is as a hero - because we know her in a certain context in the first movie, but now she's going to have her coming out party - that's exciting!"

Ant-Man & The Wasp is scheduled for a July 6, 2018 theatrical release.
