Fans of the SYFY original series Killjoys already know that Hannah John-Kamen kicks all kinds of butt, but she's getting a much bigger spotlight this week as one of the primary villains in Ant-Man and the Wasp. John-Kamen is bringing Ghost to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and her take on the character is very different from her comic book counterpart.
However, the one thing that hasn't changed is the physicality of her role, and John-Kamen was very enthusiastic about keeping that intact when SYFY WIRE spoke with her about the upcoming Marvel sequel.
"It was amazing to hang up one badass badge and then pick up another," said John-Kamen. "It was daunting. The Marvel Universe is ginormous, [and] so are the sets, and so is Ant-Man and the actors. I really, really had to pinch myself, and I still have pinch-myself [moments] with being a part of it. But it was such an incredible experience, and it was so much fun. I was just welcomed with open arms."
John-Kamen also performed the majority of her own stunts in the film and shared her thoughts on why she felt she had to fully embody Ghost even during the action scenes.
"It was really important because I always find that the physicality of the character is a part of it. Especially in the Marvel Universe, where you've got characters who have certain powers and certain fighting styles which are unique to them and who they are. I really wanted to continue that and have that continuity of the character with the physicality as well. So I did as much as I possibly, physically, and humanly could to make sure that was there. And also, when you've got the costume on and how that makes you feel... that was fun and really important to me."
John-Kamen was also very effusive about her co-stars in the movie, especially Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer. Additionally, John-Kamen had a very unique answer when we asked which of the Avengers she would want to be in real life. For the rest of that intel, you can watch the entire interview below!
