After her standout performance in Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly is set to don a suit of her own and become The Wasp in the sequel, aptly titled Ant-Man & The Wasp. While at New York Comic Con this past weekend, Lilly sat down with Blastr about the upcoming movie and when she’ll join The Avengers.
“Right now, an initial script has been created but it has not been approved by the the higher powers that be, the Feige’s. So, I haven’t seen the script – I have talked to Peyton about where they’re heading, and what they want to focus on. I’m excited because it’s essentially going to be the origin of The Wasp. We’re going to see The Wasp for the first time.”
Well, the movie isn’t due until 2018 so there’s still some time left for the script to take shape before filming gets underway. So, when will we see her character join the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes?
“Following that one, there’s an Avengers series coming out, a two-parter. The Wasp won’t be in the first part, she’ll be in the second part because they really want to preserve that reveal for Ant-Man & The Wasp.”
We’re glad that Marvel are giving this iconic character the right treatment and are focused on bringing the character to life in the right way.
Ant-Man & The Wasp will unite on July 6, 2018.
