Looks like Michelle Pfeiffer had to take a huge leap of faith before accepting the role of Janet Van Dyne aka the original Wasp Ant Man and the Wasp. While promoting her upcoming role as Betty Ford in the Showtime series The First Ladythe actor continued The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon about the mystique of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and her reluctance to take a job without reading a script first.

After lots of quantum jokes about the 2023’s silly title Ant-Man and the Wasp: QuantumaniaFallon asks her if she was initially aware of how many sequels she would be in when she signed on for the superhero franchise.

“No… They’re very mysterious, and you know they’re naturally very mysterious with their storylines,” Pfeiffer replies. After Fallon replies that he enjoyed the MCU’s secrecy, Pfeiffer explains that she didn’t entirely agree with the studio’s top-secret nature.

“It’s a little bit difficult because I met with Peyton [Reed], and I knew a little bit about the character, but there was no script,” she says. “You have to bind yourself without having read anything.”

Pfeiffer learned that all the worries about a script didn’t matter in the long run since Marvel films change frequently during filming and post-production anyway. “It wouldn’t have mattered because everything changes anyway,” says the actor. “You don’t really know what you’re getting into and then you get a script just before you start filming and then it changes every day. And then you shoot the film, wrap it up, and then it changes again.”

The manner of keeping scripts rock-bottom is a fairly common practice for the MCU, especially as the movies are starting to have major spoilers for subsequent movies on their roster. One of the most secretive productions for the studio was Avengers: Infinity Warwhere many of the main actors have been given fake scripts and only found out about Thanos’ mega snap moments before filming the scene.

Before she whizzes through the quantum realm, you can catch Michelle Pfeiffer in the upcoming series The First Lady April 17 on Showtime.
