people who continue to speculate which actor would be “capable of replacing” rdj as tony stark
people who still think we need tony stark to have iron man in any future film
before some lost soul messages me with a ‘well she MIGHT appear!!!’
'hope van dyne', later corrected to 'hope pym', is the daughter of hank pym, played by michael douglas. the BEST case scenario is that the van dyne thing was an accidental spoiler and she's jan's daughter, and we have an easter egg moment where we see jan, but most likely, jan is talked about. these are the scenarios in which jan MIGHT exist. a bare mention.
if jan is hope’s mom, she is hank’s age and out of the superheroing and avenging business, if she was ever in it.
there’s another scenario where hope ISN’T just the love interest (but that’s where the smart money is lbr) and she fights/heists alongside scott lang as the wasp. this means that jan van dyne would be erased as the wasp.
the ‘rumor’ that it’s going to have flashbacks to ‘classics’ ant-man and wasp makes no sense because it is clear avengers, separately and together, are the first of their kind
but let’s say there WAS a flashback to jan as wasp, and that hope takes up the mantle
this means jan is erased from the avengers. she is a founding member and every single one of her founding member status team mates /each have their own movies/ and she AT BEST gets a legacy character
jan van dyne is effectively not going to be in the active marvel cinematic universe no matter how you look at it
