Ant-Man and the Wasp’s Pfeiffer Struggling with Old Comics

Michelle Pfeiffer recently spoke about preparing for her role in Ant-Man and the Wasp, saying she's having a "really hard time" reading old comics for research.

"I just started reading them, and I’m having a really hard time,” Pfeiffer told Variety. "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."

Pfeiffer will star in the Ant-Man sequel as Janet van Dyne, the mother of Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and wife of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). Her role as the original Wasp is the actress' first superhero part since she played Catwoman in Batman Returns.

Aquaman Director on DC Film’s Watery, Complicated Shoot

Aquaman Director James Wan says the upcoming DC film's underwater setting has made for a "very technically complicated shoot."

Wan spoke about the difficulties of filming Aquaman with The Hollywood Reporter, saying both the water and dry-for-wet sequences are "very complex." He listed things like "CG with the hair, and how their clothing moves, how are they floating, what kind of rig we put them on," as some of the challenges.

Adding to the difficulty is Wan's desire to make minimal use of CGI, opting to shoot with actors as often as possible, which he says makes filming "very difficult and time-sucking and time-challenging." Despite the various challenges, Wan hopes his efforts will "pay off in spades" once the movie is completed.
