As Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp is all set to hit the theaters early next year, director Peyton Reed revealed about Wasp’s (Evangeline Lilly) interesting fighting styles.
In a recent interview with CinemaBlend, Reed spoke about Lilly’s character Hope Van Dyne/Wasp. He said that even though Wasp will be using similar size-changing powers as Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), her fighting style will be completely different.
“This is really her coming out party as a hero. Her power set is fantastic. She and Scott both shrink, but there the flying, and the fighting style of The Wasp is different from Ant-Man’s,” said Reed.
Fans are looking forward to seeing Hope Van Dyne suited up to take on all big and small villains. Luckily for fans, Lilly has been regularly giving out details from the set. The actress had posted a behind-the-scenes photo recently, hinting the end of the production work on Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Previously, Reed had hinted at the film’s connection with the events transpired in Captain America: Civil War. He said:
“The events of Captain America: Civil War gave us something clear, which is: what was Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne’s reaction to Scott having taken this technology out into the world in Civil War?. We had a lot of fun playing around with that. And we play with size and scale a lot. I love the idea of Giant-Man.”
It was in 2015 that Marvel Cinematic Universe introduced Ant-Man to the big screen. Even though Ant-Man did not do exceedingly well at the box office, it did well enough to earn itself a place in Marvel Studio’s Phase 3.
While Paul Rudd will play the male lead in Ant-Man and The Wasp, Evangeline Lilly will essay the role of Wasp. The sequel will release in theaters on July 6, 2018.
