Dressed in white, in what I imagine was a tribute to her character, Hannah John-Kamen entered the room with a big smile. After watching Ant-Man and the Wasp, I was intrigued with her character and thought that Hannah John-Kamen did a phenomenal job as “Ghost”.
Here is what Hannah John-Kamen had to say…
- Hannah was a huge fan of the first film, Ant-Man.
- She was so excited to join the Marvel Universe, but also found it to be a bit daunting. “…It’s overwhelming. It’s a huge responsibility to take this amazing character off the comic book page and be the first person to introduce it into an incredible movie with incredible cast members…So, yeah, it was amazing. Very exciting.
- Hannah sent in an audition tape for the role because she was filming in Toronto at the time.
- When she found out she had the role (by phone), she screamed and started dancing to Miley Cyrus.
- Because her character, who was originally male in the comic books, didn’t have a back story, “that was really great, because it’s like, okay, we really have the freedom to, to create this character and find out who she is. So, that was fun.”
- She thinks that “…everyone’s redeemable. I really do. I think Marvel does that genius job with the villainous characters to really not make it black and white. They make it gray. They make it kind of like you kinda feel sorry for them. You’re kind of on their side. You kind of confuse yourself as an audience member and go, hold on a minute. Why am I rooting for this person.”
- Hannah “approached the character as if she’s the good guy. Through my eyes, she’s the good guy…She’s got a job, she’s got her objective. The stakes are really high.”
- When it comes to doing her own stunts, she thinks “it’s really important to do as much as you physically possibly can, because the character is what you bring to it, it’s not just emotional. It’s also physically, especially in this Marvel Universe. We all have different powers.”
- She was starstruck working with Michelle Pfeiffer. “I got very, very, very, very star struck. I’m a huge fan. I remember in Grease 2, me and my sister used to make up dances in front of the TV to all of her songs all the time. I was obsessed. I was obsessed with her Cat Woman. I thought she was so bada**. I thought she set that bar so high. She’s an incredible actress…it was amazing…”
While in LA, we were also able to interview Michael Douglas (“Dr. Hank Pym”), Paul Rudd (“Scott Lang / Ant-Man”), Laurence Fishburne (“Dr. Bill Foster”) and Evangeline Lilly (“Hope van Dyne / The Wasp”) and Director Peyton Reed.

There are 2 post credit film scenes. If you can’t stay for both (which I suggest you do), you need to stay for the 1st one.
