For those who have seen Ant-Man in theaters, there are two post-credit scenes, one which sets up the future of a certain Ant-Man character, Evangeline Lilly's Hope Van Dyne, and another that teases Captain America: Civil War. Earlier today, Marvel released a photo from the first end credits scene, but there will be spoilers for those who haven't seen the movie yet. This is your last chance to avoid any spoilers, so from here on out, read on at your own risk.
One of the running sub-plots throughout Ant-Man is that Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) resents her father Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) for choosing Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to become the Ant-Man. Towards the end of the movie, Hank reveals that his wife and Hope's mother Janet was killed during a mission, while she was wearing the first version of The Wasp suit. He didn't want to lose Hope by putting her in danger, which is why he let Scott wear the Ant-Man suit. The first end credits scene shows Hank leading Hope into a secret area, where he unveils her very own Wasp suit, when a grinning Hope replies "It's about time." Today's photo gives us our best look at this suit yet, although we still don't know when we'll see it again.
It has already been confirmed that Paul Rudd's Scott Lang will be a part of Captain America: Civil War, which is currently filming in Atlanta. Producer Kevin Feige recently confirmed that Evangeline Lilly's The Wasp won't be featured in this upcoming superhero adventure, but she will pop up at some point during Marvel Phase Three. Since there are no current plans for an Ant-Man sequel just yet, it's possible we could see her make an appearance in next year's Doctor Strange, or the two-part Avengers: Infinity War adventure.
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios' Ant-Man. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
While we wait to find out when we'll see The Wasp suit next, you can check out the official photo below. Most actors who sign on to Marvel movies have multi-picture contracts, but it isn't known yet how many movies Evangeline Lilly is locked in for. Where do you hope she will show up next as The Wasp? Chime in with your thoughts after checking out this new photo.
