As I was going through Roger Wardell's twitter feed today I saw something that sparked my interest for Shane Black's Iron Man 3...
Inside News: When Stephanie Szostak's role is for Iron Man 3 is announced, fans will go crazy.
Szostak's role has been shrouded in secrecy, and this little comment sent me on a hunt to find out more information. I ended up coming across an article over at comicbook.com that had an inside source tell them that she is playing The Wasp in the film! It's definitely a character that fans would flip over! We've all wanted to see The Wasp introduced in the marvel universe, and it would be great if it was in Iron Man 3.
Szostak does appear briefly in the Iron Man 3 trailer, shoving Tony Stark up against the wall (I think they're going to make out). This could easily be our first look at Janet van Dyne. We may not see her in costume in the film kicking ass, but this could be the introduction to the character. Joss Whedon also said that he was looking to introduce more women characters into The Avengers sequel, and The Wasp would make sense. The actress is definitely sporting a Wasp style haircut.
What do you think about the possibility of The Wasp showing up in Iron Man 3? There's a reason why Marvel is keeping things on the down low.
