Marvel panel at the Comic-Con International at Hall H in San Diego began their session with a rather humorous flash back of the Marvel movie universe so far. And when it comes to pimping their new movies, they do it with flare, style and comedy.

Rounding out the casting announcements are Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, a nemesis of Iron Man in the comics who is sometimes positioned as anti-hero type, and Randall Park as agent Jimmy Woo. There was major news for Thor: Ragnarok, Captain Marvel and Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released on July 6, 2018.

At the time of filing this report, the Indian army is strongly retaliating to the shellings even as both sides are exchanging heavy gunfire.

Also revealed: a character called The Ghost will be in the film.

Actor Michael Douglas will return as Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, and husband to Janet, who he will hopefully share some screen time with. One gag shows him in his Giant-Man proportions peaking out from behind a building on a city street. At the end of the film, Hank's daughter, Hope van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lilly), was given the original Wasp suit, and it's clearly hinted that she would take on the mantle of the superhero in the film's sequel. She was also said to be the chairman of The Avengers. But considering how obscure Ant-Man was to the average moviegoer before his film, it's worth diving into exactly who each of these actors will be portraying in Ant-Man & the Wasp. However, there was one other piece of information revealed during the Marvel panel about the film, and that was of an additional cast member who will be playing a villain in the film. The costume color though is of significance, it is yellow which is in contrast with Ant-Man's red.
