Evangeline Lilly in Talks for Female Lead in Ant-Man

Evangeline Lilly (Lost, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) is currently in early talks to star opposite Paul Rudd in Marvel’s Ant-Man.  Lilly’s prospective role is currently being kept a secret by Marvel but it appears the her role may not even be a character in the comics.

There are currently many possibilities floating around the internet as to who Lilly would be playing which have ranged from simply being Paul Rudd’s love interest to playing Hank Pym’s daughter and possibly even the Wasp.

It would be an interesting move if she turned out to be Pym’s daughter since to my knowledge he doesn’t even have a daughter.  Some of the more hard-core fans of Ant-Man might understandably be wary of Marvel creating a new character for the movie but for now I’m going to reserve judgement.  It’s not necessarily a bad thing for adaptations to insert new characters.  Harley Quinn didn’t exist in the comics until first appearing in Batman: The Animated Series and now it’s hard for many fans to picture a Joker story without her.

Do you think Evangeline Lilly would make a good Wasp?  Do you think Hank Pym should have a daughter in Ant-Man?  Let us know in the comment section below.

is a native Texan who has had a love and fascination with movies as long as he can remember. He attended Sam Houston State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis on Broadcast Journalism. His love of film only grew during his college days, with seldom an hour going by without him making some kind of movie reference. He has since gone on a seemingly never-ending quest to see as many movies (old and new) that he possibly can, a task made possible by his Netflix subscription. Besides movies he enjoys television, reading, writing, video editing, listening to music, and watching Doctor Who.
