Douglas' character mourned the death of his wife, the mother of his daughter Hope, played by Evangeline Lilly, in the hit 2015 movie. She was also one of the founding members of the Avengers in the 60s. Later, when Scott Lang is in the Quantum Realm, we even see a tease of a person floating in the ether. Pym's eponymous particles allow the Wasp to have numerous same powers as Ant-Man; in the comics universe, Janet and Hank were founding members of the Avengers. Turning to her father's colleague Hank, Janet is gifted with the ability to shrink and grow wings. The costume color though is of significance, it is yellow which is in contrast with Ant-Man's red.

Randall Park from "Veep" is also set to take on the role of secret agent James "Jimmy" Woo, according to The Verge. With production now underway, we can expect some more Goliath-sized announcements along the way.

Finally, Laurence Fishburne is playing Dr. Bill Foster, who in the comics was a lab assistant to Hank Pym. The panel kicked off with a clip featuring Ant-Man's Paull and Rudd and Michael Pena doing a recap of the history of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, using props like Hulk hands and pictures of David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury. The character was created by Stan Lee and Don Heck in 1966. As part of the comics, Foster was considered a hero in his own right, first taking on the mantle of Black Goliath before he took over as Giant-Man from Pym.

More recently, Fishburne has had a supporting role at Marvel's rival studio DC, playing Daily Planet editor Perry White in 2013's Man of Steel and last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
