Michelle Pfeiffer is returning to comic book movies next year in Ant-Man and the Wasp. She is playing Janet van Dyne, the original wasp, as well Hope’s mother, and Hank Pym’s wife.
Variety recently had a discussion with the Oscar Nominated actress, where Pfeiffer admitted that in doing her research for Ant-Man and the Wasp, she quickly learned she has no idea how to read a comic book:
“I just started reading them, and I’m having a really hard time. There’s so much information on a page, and it’s not linear. When I’m skim reading them it’s difficult to know that this part comes after that and who is talking in what bubble.”
Reading comics is so second nature to most of us, but apparently learning to read comics when you didn’t grow up with them is hard. I lent my own mother my copy of Batman: Year One years ago and she still hasn’t started it because she requires instruction. Who knew?
Pfeiffer also told Variety why she decided to do her first superhero film in over 25 years, last playing Catwoman in Batman Returns in 1992:
“It had this great sense of humor about it and just this unusual tone. This new script has the same thing. It’s nicely written.”
