Superhero Movies News is claiming, that the actress best known for her roles in NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation is now a favorite to star as Janet Van Dyne in Ant-Man. The character, according to their source, will be introduced as a love interest for Hank Pym. According to the rumor, it is a little disappointing though that the character won’t get her own powers and costume (as The Wasp) in the film. Speculations are that there will be clues and hints as to the results of her exposure to the powerful Pym Particles.
They also report that Edgar Wright really wants Paul Rudd as the Ant man and SMN claims this news is from a proven source .Add to that the fact that Jones already has an onscreen history with Rudd from when they starred in I Love You Man and Our Idiot Brother together and her chemistry with her Parks & Recreation co-star, Chris Pratt it makes it sound even more plausible.
So it may not be too far of a reach considering that Jones is a known comic book fan and co-creator of a comic book series, Oni’s Frenemy of the State. Maybe she would be a nice fit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if this were true.
Personally I like it but what do you think? let me know below.
