With promotion for Captain America: Civil War in full swing, a lot of news is hitting the net about the film, previous drafts and short reactions via Twitter. Can you imagine another character being added to the massive cast of the film?
In a recent interview with Collider, Civil War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely revealed that Evangeline Lily’s Wasp nearly made into the film via previous draft but decided on Ant-Man:
Christopher Markus: You know, almost everybody made it in. There was a period where we talked about bringing Wasp in. There was actually a draft Wasp was in because she was so almost on the edge of being in Ant-Man, but then you’re taking something awesome out of the Ant-Man team’s quiver if it’s like, “Well, we’re doing her!” Plus she had a similar skill set, so it’s like “Well, maybe we just isolate it to Scott.
Stephen McFeely: When you see the movie, you see that Scott is his own comic relief so it would change that a little bit. They would be this pair. Everybody else we would talk about them and then they’d go away, but we got most everybody back.
It may have been great to see Wasp in her full costumed glory in Civil War, Markus and McFeely are making a wise decision to place the focus on Scott Lang / Ant-Man rather than force her in, taking away from a true debut come Ant-Man and The Wasp on July 6th, 2018.
