Spoilers ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’: villains, credit scenes and ties to ‘Avengers’

SPOILERS AHEAD

VILLAINS

Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen)

Ghost is main “villain” in the film, but is also a victim of the quantum experimentation of her father, Elihas Starr. Starr is Egghead in the comic book and, while he’s bald in the brief flashback, he’s irrelevant to the story otherwise and doesn’t seem to be based on much from the comic books.

Ghost is a male character in the comic books, changed to Ava in the film. She is able to phase and resembles some of the later versions in “Dark Reign” and “Stark Disassembled.”

Bill Foster aka Goliath (Laurence Fishburne)

Fishburne’s Foster is not really a villain. He makes references to growing in the “GOLIATH” project years ago when Hank’s Ant-Man was active, but is only a mentor to Ava.

“I have this sort of surrogate daughter, this character called Ghost, played by Hannah John-Kamen, who is incredible,” the actor said in a recent interview. “We have a sort of father/daughter thing going on.”

Foster survives and remains in play at the end of the film.

Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch

Goggins is reduced to a token thug badguy, working for an unnamed BIGGER BADDIE.

OVERVIEW VERDICT:

Ghost has a really cool power, revealed very early on as she phases into Hank’s neck and creates a real threat of menace. After that one moment, everything else is hand-to-hand, martial arts inspired battles and it entertaining without any “Wow Factor.”

The villains are irrelevant in the grand scheme, but the audience can at least sympathize with Ava.
