Evangeline Lilly, who stars as the Wasp in Marvel’s upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp, revealed that she flayed the skin off both of her forearms during a stunt that went wrong several years ago on the set of Lost. “There were open wounds, pus-y and oozing,” she said during a panel discussion Wednesday night on the Fox lot about women in the stunt business. “I looked like a mutant. My mom said, ‘You’ll never be able to wear an evening gown again!’”

Lilly also made it clear that the accident was no accident, accusing an unnamed stunt coordinator — who she described as “misogynistic” — of punishing her for defying his wish to have a stuntwoman do the stunt. It involved rolling off a thick tree branch high above the ground and hanging on for dear life, though there was no risk of falling because she was safely harnessed to the branch.

Lilly said she asked to have moleskin – a light fabric used to prevent abrasions – wrapped around her forearms, but the coordinator said no. “They’ll see it,” he said, though she was sure it wouldn’t show on screen. So she did the stunt bare-armed – over and over and over again. And each time the rough bark ripped off more of her skin. And after each take, New Skin – a liquid-bandage brand – was painfully applied to the wounds, and then the coordinator would send her back up the tree to do it again and again and again, each time more painful than the last.

“I felt it was him saying, ‘I’m going to put you in your place for standing up to me,’” she said. “It was either cow to his power or hurt myself. I was in my 20s then. Now, I would probably back down.”

Injuries are part of the job, though rarely are they intentional. A more common complaint by stuntwomen is the discrimination they face on the job – or not getting jobs at all.

Lilly was joined onstage by Ingrid Kleinig, her Ant-Man and the Wasp stunt double, and by three other stuntwomen, who among them have more than 75 years of stunt experience. They’ve rolled cars, fallen 80 feet through fire, rappelled down buildings and worked on some of the biggest action films produced in recent years.

But Deven MacNair said her most risky move has been speaking out against “wigging,” the age-old practice of stuntmen donning wigs and women’s clothes to double for actresses. And she’s done more than just complain – she alerted her union and filed an EEOC complaint. She was accompanied to the event by her attorney, Brenda Feigen, who’s trying to get more stuntwomen to come forward to file a class-action lawsuit.

“That was my greatest stunt,” MacNair told the audience, noting that speaking out has hurt her career. Wigging, she said, “robs us of our pension and health, robs us of the experience we need to get the next job.” Then she pointed in the audience to veteran stuntwoman Julie Johnson, who MacNair said “has been fighting this since the 1970s.” […]

Ant-Man and the Wasp is due out in roughly two months, so let’s steal some time from Avengers: Infinity War posts to talk about the upcoming film. We know that Ant-Man and the Wasp will deal with the fallout from Captain America: Civil War where Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) became a fugitive as he was on Team Cap. We also know that Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) will finally suit up as the Wasp who is Ant-Man’s partner. We also know that Ghost will be the villain and the Quantum Realm will be explored in more detail in this film. What struggle will Hope have in the film though? Turns out she has a case of I-don’t-need-a-partner-itis.

We saw this a little in Ant-Man. She was training to take over for her father Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) before he decided to hand the shrinking suit to Scott. She was resentful for a good part of the movie, going on about how she should be the one in the suit and she should be the hero. It sounds like once she suits up as Wasp, she may start seeing no point in teaming up with Scott. CinemaBlend spoke with director Peyton Reed who said this:

“Well, the movie is absolutely about Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne, and Hope becoming Wasp… and their relationship is a little fractured… I think for Hope particularly, the question is out there: ‘Do I need this guy in my life? I’m a fully formed hero in my own right, do I need a partner?’ That was really a fun kind of premise to start from.”

It’s not a terribly original story, but it’s understandable since we’ve seen the character deal with similar feelings before. It’s also an interesting twist since the “new” hero is usually not the one not wanting a partner. I’m excited to see this film!

Ant-Man and the Wasp will hit theaters July 6, 2018.

Last month, Evangeline spoke with Entertainment Weekly about her upcoming film “Ant-Man and The Wasp” and revealed her character’s arc. Read below what he said. Also the site (EW) published two new exclusive photos, which you can see below.

Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne (a.k.a. the Wasp) may share the power of miniaturization with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang (a.k.a. Ant-Man) in Ant-Man and the Wasp. The Wasp is, after all, the first female superhero to appear in the title of a Marvel Cinematic Universe film. “It means a lot to me,” says Lilly. “If I’m honest with myself, I feel a lot of pressure to make sure that it is everything that the world wants it to be.”

The film concerns the quest by van Dyne, Lang, and scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to rescue Janet van Dyne — that’s Hope’s mother and Hank’s wife — from the Quantum Realm, an alternate dimension into which she disappeared decades previously. “Scott entered the Quantum Realm in the first film and came back, which is something they thought was impossible,” says Lilly. “The question has arisen, ‘Can Janet come back?’ So the entire film, my character is hell-bent on finding a way to get into the Quantum Realm and bring her back.”
