Do all roads lead to the Wasp in Iron Man 3 (and The Avengers 2)?

Normally, I would never post about a nebulous movie rumor, but the potential for discussion and mystery is so cool that I couldn't resist. It concerns the possible cinematic introduction of one of the actual, original founding members of the Avengers from the Marvel comics: Janet van Dyne, aka the Wasp. Rumors concerning the Wasp in the first Avengers movie definitely existed before they were squashed, but lately, we've been treated to a bunch of hints that might actually make this a credible subject for speculation.

Presenting the Iron Man 3 trailer, in which Tony Stark is having a hard time dealing with himself

(Video link) Above is the official trailer for Iron Man 3, in which we will catch up with Tony Stark after the events of this year's The Avengers. And it looks like he's, well, going through some stuff and having to deal with things related to Tony Stark and not just Iron Man. And then also the Iron Man stuff, like his new foe the Mandarin (played by Sir Ben Kingsley). This is what I like the most about superhero movies -- when they remember they're people, too.
