The Transformers spinoff finds its star, a banner contains the first look of the Wasp in Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Westworld adds a character who is visiting the park at the worst possible time. Spoilers ahead!

Ant-Man & the Wasp
A banner currently on display at the D23 Expo has given us our first look at The Wasp in full costume.
Charlize Theron spoke to Variety about the possibility of a Furiosa solo film, which apparently already has a script. Or three.
I’d love to. There were three scripts. They were written as backstories to Max’s character and to Furiosa’s character. But at the end of the day, this thing lives and breathes with [director] George [Miller]. I think Warner Bros. knows that. We are all waiting for him to show us the way.

Avengelyne and the “Ologies”
Deadline reports that Akiva Goldsman has made a deal with Paramount to direct a movie based on Rob Liefeld’s Avengelyne (an angel who fights evil) and to develop a movie series based on the fictional textbooks that include Alienology, Dragonology, Monsterology, and Vampireology.
Here’s a featurette on Charlize Theron’s fighting style. “They throw one punch, she throws three.”
Here’s another trailer for the “half-Cronenberg, half-Ren & Stimpy” debut feature from Flying Lotus. The cast includes Tim Heidecker and George Clinton.

I don’t think Marvel will ever use me again, but it would be fun.
Avengers: Infinity War

Katja Herbers has joined the cast of season two as Grace, “a seasoned guest in Westworld whose latest visit comes at the park’s darkest hour.” [Deadline]
Empire also has this photo of Black Bolt squaring off with Maximus. While it may not look like much at first glance, note the V-shaped archway behind Bolt serving as a visual signifier of the character’s famous forked antennae as he physically presses up against his runtier, evil brother. Likewise, Maximus is rendered by the backdrop of a white stairwell — it’s frilliness denoting the villain’s love of fancy collars. Semiotics!
Season three premieres September 10th, according to TV Guide.
Here’s the final trailer for the show’s final season.
There’s a couple seconds of new footage in the latest promo.
