Rashida Jones just signed on for a new television pilot for TBS. There may have been concerns about scheduling in the event the show goes to series.
If she had been serious about getting the Wasp role, she shouldn't have signed on to a tv pilot yet. Nearly all of them aren't picked up, and more than half each year end up getting canceled before the first season finishes. Being in a successful movie would greatly enhance her career more than some show.
Who knows, maybe it was the other way around. Maybe the Ant-Man deal fell through (for any number of reasons) so she jumped on the TV pilot instead. For all we know, the Ant-Man thing was a dead issue before
the TV offer came along.
There's no reason to assume that it was an either/or thing where she had to choose. Remember, aside from the occasional rumor, we have no idea what's going on behind the scenes or when these decisions were made.
It's not like either Jones or Marvel was going to put out a press release about not
hiring her . . ..
