Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp Is The Lead In Ant-Man & The Wasp, Says Director

Now that Avengers: Infinity War is just almost a month away from its big screen release, information about Marvel Studios’ third cinematic offering of the year titled, Ant-Man & the Wasp, has started pouring in. While the first Ant-Man movie had quite a few comedy elements blended together with a heist storyline, the sequel won’t essentially be a full-on romantic-comedy film.

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Ant-Man & The Wasp, director Peyton Reed dropped some details about what fans can expect from the film. He made it clear that Ant-Man and the Wasp is not a romantic comedy genre movie as it was expected to be.

It’s not a romantic comedy,” Reed said. “The idea might enter Hope’s brain: does she need Scott Lang in her life?

The director also talked about The Wasp’s first major big-screen role. He stressed that The Wasp is not a supporting character in this movie and that she is quite important to the story and film.

It was important to me, in this movie called Ant-Man and The Wasp, that she’s not a supporting character,” Reed added. “She’s a lead character. She’s become a fully-formed hero. She really was, along with Sue Storm of the Fantastic Four, one of the first female Marvel heroes. I feel a certain responsibility with The Wasp.”

Reed pointed out how Ant-Man and the Wasp set itself apart from other MCU films.

This one explores the different generations of Ant-Man and The Wasp,” he said. “I thought that was an interesting thing we haven’t seen in a Marvel movie.”

Although Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp won’t be in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, the character has been confirmed to appear in Avengers 4. but unfortunately, it looks like her screen time isn’t much compared to other cast members.

Talking more about Ant-Man & The Wasp, the film stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp, Michael Peña as Luis, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Judy Greer as Maggie, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne and Hannah John-Kamen as the Ghost.

Ant-Man & The Wasp will land in theatres on July 6, 2018.
