The Marvel Cinematic Universe has begun to expand at an exponential rate. Captain America: Civil War has blown the shared universe’s door off of its hinges, and opened up a world of possibility for an army of new characters. With that in mind, Marvel has enlisted the help of some truly iconic actors and actresses to bring these characters to life. One such actress is Sharon Stone, who has just announced that she will have a small part in a future Marvel movie.
During a recent interview with James Corden, Sharon Stone revealed that Marvel has enlisted her for a mysterious role in an upcoming movie:
I’m just doing a wee part in a Marvel movie, upcoming, and I can’t tell, because you know, you have to sign confidentiality agreements. But I’m going to do a wee part in a Marvel movie now. That’s it.
Sharon Stone’s next project will take the form of a coming MCU movie, but she cannot divulge any more than that due to the fact that she signed a confidentiality agreement. We’re not exactly sure why she insisted on using "wee" twice as an adjective, but there it is. There’s always the possibility that she means Marvel literally gave her a small part, in which case we think the studio may have cast her has Janet Van Dyne a.k.a the original Wasp.
Janet Van Dyne only shows up for one scene in the original Ant-Man film from last year, and we as an audience never actually get to see her face. The mask of her Wasp outfit obscures her face in a flashback sequence with her husband Hank Pym, and she eventually sacrifices herself by going "subatomic" to stop a ballistic missile, so we never get a chance to see her again. Although Hank Pym has spent years mourning the "death" of Janet, many have assumed that she might be returned to him during the events of Ant-Man and The Wasp because Scott Lang himself came back from the subatomic realm at the end of Ant-Man.
Only time will tell, but we definitely think that would be an awesome storyline to see played out on the silver screen. One thing’s for certain: fans of Basic Instinct would probably love to see Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone reunited as Ant-Man and The Wasp, respectively.
All that being said, we really cannot say for certain what part she will have in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future. With so many awesome character set to debut, there’s really any number of possibilities at this point. Perhaps she will play someone from Spider-Man’s mythos, or maybe even that of Black Panther; Sharon Stone is an incredibly talented actress, so we have faith in Marvel Studios’ ability to cast her for the perfect role.
We will bring you more Marvel news as it becomes available to us. For now, be sure to check out Captain America: Civil War, which is currently in theaters.
