I hadn't seen news of this around the Gawker/Kinja-verse as of yet, so thought I'd share.

EDIT: As Balmut pointed out it has only been speculated that Janet van Dyne (The Wasp) is Pym's wife and may already be dead in the upcoming Ant-Man film. The 'tragedy' is said to involve Pym's wife and daughter (Hope). Also there is further speculation that Hank Pym's daughter, Hope Pym, will *possibly* be a love interest for Scott Lang.

The Mary Sue is reporting that Cassie Lang, Scott's daughter, will also be in the film.

We don't know if either Hope or Cassie will be super-powered or not in the film. In the comics Cassie has a congenital heart disease. It is likely that Cassie will play a role in Scott taking on the mantle of Ant-Man in hopes of 'saving' Cassie in some form or fashion.

I guess we shall see. Funny, I was excited to see this film (up until a couple of months ago) and now I'm on the fence. But who am I kidding? I'll see it.
