Ant-Man crawled into theaters less than a week ago, and I absolutely loved it. If you haven't gotten the chance to see it yet, I'd say you should make the plans to do so. But considering you're reading this article, I'm guessing that you've already seen the fun-sized superhero in action, so let's get down to business, shall we?

Now what character from the movie could possibly make a return? Is it Ant-Tony?

If only.
If only.

Unfortunately no, it's not the insect that we all grew to know and love. I'm talking about the character that had a fairly small part in the film: Janet Van Dyne, the wife of Hank Pym. Before Scott ruined their father-daughter moment, Hank came clean to his daughter about how her mother really passed. We flash back to the 1980s, after Russia had launched a nuclear missile. Aboard that missile was none other the original Ant-Man, accompanied by his beloved wife, Janet, who was also known as the Wasp.

Their plan was to get behind the panels of the missile in order to disarm it, but despite their already small stature, they weren't able to fit through. Without hesitation, the Wasp made the ultimate sacrifice by shrinking to subatomic size, so she could disarm the nuclear weapon from the inside. Janet succeeded in this heroic endeavor before disappearing into a subatomic quantum realm, shrinking through eternity. But is she really gone forever? I don't think so.

Are you insane?
Are you insane?

Near the end of the movie, Scott saves his one and only daughter by ignoring Hank's warning, and shrinking to subatomic size, destroying Yellowjacket's suit from the inside. As he disappeared into the quantum realm, Scott quickly reversed the mechanics of his suit by inserting the blue disc (that causes matter to expand) into his belt, bringing him back to his normal size. In conclusion, he survived the the quantum realm!

The way Hank pondered Scott's survival at the end of the movie made me think that as soon as the credits rolled, Pym got to work on bringing his beloved back from the microverse. I'm not certain about how he could achieve this goal, but I believe it to be possible. I believe that we haven't seen the last of Janet Van Dyne.
