Chris Evans, Chadwick Boseman, and Paul Bettany are just some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe stars who have said that their superhero costumes are uncomfortable to wear.
But Ant-Man and the Wasp star Evangeline Lilly has brilliantly called out her male co-stars by explaining the real reason why they’ve been complaining.
The actress, who plays Hope van Dyne aka the Wasp in this summer’s Marvel blockbuster, said that she didn’t find suiting up in her own costume that bad and pointed out a key difference between a man and a woman having to cope with wearing something uncomfortable.
“I have been hearing Marvel male superheroes complaining about their suits for years,” she told BackstageOL. “And I got into my suit, and I was wearing it, working in it, doing my thing, and I was like, ‘It’s just not that bad’.
“Do I have the most comfortable suit in the MCU? Or, have men not had the life experience of being uncomfortable for the sake of looking good, and they’re just like, ‘What is this? This sucks! Why? Why do I have to go through this?’, whereas a woman’s like, ‘I don’t know, it’s normal’.
“I wear heels to work, and I’m uncomfortable all day. You get used to it. You just tune it out.”
