Ant-Man star Michael Douglas has revealed that popular Avengers comics character Janet Van Dyne is already dead by the time the film’s main storyline begins. Douglas plays Hank Pym, the first Ant-Man and husband to Janet Van Dyne.
“I’m an entomologist,” he told EW. “I’m also a physicist and I discovered in 1963, a way, a serum to reduce a human being to the size of an ant, maintaining the strength. But unfortunately during this process, a tragic personal accident happened with my wife.”
Janet Van Dyne, A.K.A. Wasp, was included in an early draft of Joss Whedon’s first Avengers movie. In the new Ant-Man adaptation she would have been in her 50s or 60s, and mother to Evangeline Lilly’s character Hope Van Dyne. Instead she’s been given an offscreen death in what fans are labeling a #JanetVanCrime.
The founding members of the Avengers team were Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man, and Janet Van Dyne as the Wasp. In other words, all of the male characters get their own movie franchises, while the Wasp is not only sidelined, but killed off to provide backstory for characters in the new Ant-Man movie.
WAIT HOLD THE FUCK UP
IS ‘MRS’ JUST MR’S
LIKE BELONGING TO MR
Mr comes from the French monsieur, which I think literally translates as ‘my lord’ and basically just means master, and Mrs comes from maistre which is the feminine form of master, so actually—for once—no.
This was an extremely relevant comment and I thank you for educating me

First of all, thank you for taking the time to clarify your position.
This is one of the first times I’ve been exposed to Internet backlash of this magnitude. While you have more experience as a public figure, I can empathize with the overwhelming feeling of strangers passing judgement.
Respectfully, however, I don’t think that I am mistaken.
I couldn’t find specifically what the reference to Jezebel related to, but I did find your statement made initially on Facebook Link here, for those who are interested. I will make my response to that.
To begin, for those who don’t know, your response was largely made in reaction to my commentary on comments made at the recent Nerd HQ/Supernatural panel at SDCC, and the subsequent fan-wide discussions that it catalyzed. My post is here.
Continued under the cut.
