Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Hi everybody i'm peter travers welcome to popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's no movie now except aunt men and the wasp that's just it and this is a history making movie in a way because the waas my guest eventually is the first will woman to ever ever name in the title of a movie hey was that in the contract it was brits it's pretty amazing they didn't put it my contract it actually was something that i i knew i would take on the mantle of the waas when i signed up for the first gay man i mean i read the script and at the end of the script she gets the suit and says it's about damn time but what they kept secret and they didn't tell me and didn't reveal until like we were well into pre production on man and the wasp was that her name would be in the title and so they sent me they sent me the title card as surprise so would you eventually explain for those benighted so tools out there that still have no idea what the marvel universe is or what ant man is or anything who your character hope van dyne actually is who is this woman first of all i was one of those people years ago i was when marvel i approach me to engage about the dialogue on you know if i would like to be a part of the atman film or if it would interest me i actually felt like no it probably wouldn't interest me because i'm not into superhero movies i'd never read comic books it's just not my jam and then my manager was like hang on a minute hold the phone let me let me give you a little education like these guys are doing something really special and really cool and so then i went educated myself i watched a bunch of marvel films and was like oh damn straight they're doing something i wanna be part of it i think about six that's pretty good i know i did quite well because i don't usually watch a lot of movies in one weekend i think i managed to get through about six which is a lot for a mother of two tried to mother of two has an excuse not to watch all twenty yeah but my character hope van dyne is in the original comic books she is janet van dyne and hank pym are married couple there the original founding members of the avengers they're very important features in the comic books for the vendors and my character was fabricated for the atman movie her name is hope and dine she took her mother's last name because she had major emotional issues with her father after her mother's death and she's a highly intelligent highly driven very disciplined scientists who also happens to be an expert in moyed tie and also happens to be an expert in controlling and also happens to be able to create amazing super suits and fly around and beat people up so you had all those talents to do someday said let's cast eventually because she can do this and physics all of that has nothing to her of course i mean i was a little over qualified to be on my flying skills were off the charts and you know i had to sort of decide whether or not it was willing to dumb down my talents in order to do that without giving away the store which you won't do because i know what happens if you say anything that marvel doesn't like yeah we just this whole stage just opened up and swallowed we get swallowed in terms of doing exactly and by the way i'm used to this level of national security because it was being you you can never talk about when was there you couldn't say word or they would execute now and then you decide to hobbit which the same yell security lost i had to have a lock box attached to my front door just so i can get scripts delivered.
