Before reading this article, I want to clarify that this is in noway proof that Evangeline Lilly‘s character in “Ant-Man,” Hope Van Dyne, will take on the identity made famous by her mother... But it hardly seems coincidental...
Evangeline Lilly has taken to instagram to upload some rather 'Wasp-ish' looking hairstyles that she is rocking for the forthcoming Ant-Man film. The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies actress has been cast as 'Hope Van-Dyne' in the new Marvel picture, but could these images be significant evidence that she will become the MCU version of the superheroine 'Wasp'?
She also took time out to snap a picture with Scott Lang himself, Mr Paul Rudd.
For those of you who are not familiar with the size manipulating heroine, lets give you a little background on her.
"The Winsome Wasp", as she is sometimes called, is usually depicted as having the ability to shrink to a height of several centimeters, grow to giant size, fly by means of insectoid wings, and fire bioelectric energy blasts. She is a founding member of the Avengers as well as a long time leader of the team. The codename of "The Wasp" was temporarily used by Henry Pym while Janet was presumed dead.
So what you guys think, Wasp or just a Bob ?
Wasp or Bob ?
Ant-Man will be directed by Peyton Reed and will also feature Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Pena, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, John Slattery, Gregg Turkington and T.I. as cast members.
The movie is set for release on July 17, 2015.
