The Comic-Con poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp, painted by Andy Park, is here and it's probably the best poster we've seen come out of the convention.

Marvel Studios comes out swinging at Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con International with the announcement confirming Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne in 'Ant Man and the Wasp'. Fishburne is set to play the character Dr. Bill Foster, also known as the Black Goliath.

Michelle Pfeiffer is returning to the world of superheroes: because the Ant-Man sequel just got a second Wasp in the form of the original hero herself.

Whew - that's a lot of heavy hitters being added into Ant-Man and the Wasp in one day! Janet appeared as the Wasp in the film (although with her mask on) through a flashback that showed her disappearing into the subatomic quantum realm after a failed mission.

United States airstrike kills 12 Afghan police officers
The strikes were targeting a security compound in support of Afghan forces who were fighting Taliban militants, US officials said. Taliban fighters drove three captured Humvee vehicles into checkpoints during heavy fighting around Gereshk on Thursday.

Actor Michael Douglas will return as Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, and husband to Janet, who he will hopefully share some screen time with. With production now underway, we can expect some more Goliath-sized announcements along the way. The character was mentioned in 2015's Ant-Man, but hadn't then been officially cast. However, there was one other piece of information revealed during the Marvel panel about the film, and that was of an additional cast member who will be playing a villain in the film.

More recently, Fishburne has had a supporting role at Marvel's rival studio DC, playing Daily Planet editor Perry White in 2013's Man of Steel and last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The film is directed by Peyton Reed and stars Evangeline Lilly, Paul Rudd, Michael Peña, and Michael Douglas.
