Ant-Man 3: new superpowers for The Wasp?
Ant-Man's third installment may not be around tomorrow, but plenty of crispy tidbits have already leaked about the film. There are rumors that the upcoming adventures of Scott (Paul Rudd) and Hope (Evangeline Lilly) would play a key role in the evolution of the MCU.
Well, it could be Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), Hope's mother and the one who previously wore The Wasp costume, who is (directly or indirectly) linked to this famous evolution. .
Indeed, since she returned of the Quantum Realm after spending many years there, Janet might have acquired new superpowers that could completely change the game. This is in any case what is implied in "The Wakanda Files", the new official book from Marvel.
From nnew powers linked to the multiverse?
“The Wakanda Files” is a comic which presents a collection of documents (articles, plans, notes…) on science and technology of the MCU. Compiled at the behest of Shuri, T'Challa's sister, aka Black Panther and ruler of Wakanda, the book offers pseudo-scientific explanations for all of the powers, magical artifacts, and other oddities that arose during the three phases of the MCU.
The book thus focuses particularly on the case of Janet Van Dyne whose long stay in the Quantum Kingdom was not without consequences on her body. In Ant-Man 2, for example, she managed to stabilize Ghost's molecules by imparting quantum energy to him.
In her notes compiled in The Wakanda Files, Janet indicated that she felt like “[ strike] by a form of quantum entanglement ”. “[It's] like every molecule in my body continues to be in several places at once. I believe this is how I gotcould feel the pain [of Ghost]. I'm not quite sure how I managed to bring her completely back into our reality. Perhaps there are healing qualities in the particles of the Quantum Realm?
What if Janet's new powers also allowed her to manipulate quantum energy and time travel ... and the multiverse?
