At the end of Marvel's latest box office hit Ant-Man, one of the two end credits scenes featured Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) showing his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) The Wasp suit that both he designed specifically for her. This scene made it quite clear that fans will be seeing The Wasp at some point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but when that will be is still up in the air. Evangeline Lilly held a Q&A on her Facebook page yesterday, where she was asked if she has been fitted for The Wasp suit. Here's what she had to say during the Q&A session.
"I was scanned for The Wasp suit, but then I got pregnant. Let's hope I fit it again! #ineedtime"
During the Q&A session, Evangeline Lilly was also asked if she would like the chance to "fight" her mother, Janet Van Dyne, in the Quantum Realm. The first Ant-Man only gave us a brief tease of the Quantum Realm, but it also established that there is a way out of this mysterious place, since Scott Lang was able to escape. The actress said that she loved the fan's ideas, adding she would love to see Wasp fight Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, since she would just fly around the Green Goliath and make him exasperated. She also added that she wants fans to keep bugging Marvel about putting her in more movies, but we're not sure which movies she will appear in yet.
When asked if she has actually tried the Wasp suit on, the actress revealed that she hadn't because she is still pregnant. It was already confirmed that Evangeline Lilly's Wasp will not show up in Captain America: Civil War, which is currently wrapping up production in Germany. Producer Kevin Feige revealed that her character was included in an earlier draft of the Captain America: Civil War script, but she was removed. Here's what the producer had to say last month.
"She was included in early versions of Civil War but there are so many characters in Civil War that we didn't want to do her a disservice, like she flies in, 'I've got the costume now', and she flies out. With Ant-Man, and I'm not saying that's what Ant-Man does in the movie, but we already know him, we've already seen him. We haven't seen her as Wasp and we don't want to rob the opportunity of seeing her in the outfit for at least almost the first time, and seeing her dynamic with Scott in a way it could play out, so we're saving it. But its going to be in Phase three for sure."
The producer went on to confirm that fans will get to see The Wasp at some point during Phase Three, but he wouldn't confirm exactly when that would happen. After Captain America: Civil War, Marvel will roll out Doctor Strange (November 4, 2016), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017), Thor: Ragnarok (November 3, 2017), Avengers: Infinity War Part I (May 4, 2018), Black Panther (July 6, 2018), Captain Marvel (November 2, 2018), Avengers: Infinity War - Part II (May 3, 2019) and Inhumans (July 12, 2019). Hopefully we'll find out soon which of these movies The Wasp will be appearing in. What do you think of these new details?
