A new year means new movies, and Disney is staying on top of it with sneak peeks at some of their big upcoming sequels — including Ant-Man and the Wasp, which sees (as you can guess from the title) Evangeline Lilly suiting up to follow in her vanished mother’s super-footsteps with a cool suit of her very own. And the latest photo from the sequel to the 2015 Marvel movie delivers on the promise with another peek at Lilly’s super sleek Wasp suit…oh, and Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man is there too, of course.
It’s comic legend Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday today, and the whole Marvel world is celebrating. While on set filming the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp, Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope van Dyne a.k.a. the Wasp, posted an extremely cool photo of herself all dressed up in her Wasp suit, and she looks awesome.
After a few months of radio silence from Marvel on the Ant-Man and the Wasp front, the last two weeks have seen a flurry of activity. First there was the announcement that Randall Park would be joining the cast as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, then the news that Walton Goggins had signed on for a yet-unknown - but probably evil - part in the movie. All of that was blown away this past weekend with the news that Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne would be joining the cast as contemporaries of Michael Douglas‘ Hank Pym. Man, these Marvel casts just keep getting better and better.
One of the coolest parts of Marvel’s Ant-Man was the final tease of a superheroic future for Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne as the Wasp. It was also one of the more frustrating parts of Ant-Man, since we waited the whole movie to see Hope cut loose only to see her costumed alter ego put on hold until a potential sequel. Now the sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, is less than a year away, and Hope’s moment in the sun is finally almost here.
