Evangeline Lilly Discusses Hope’s Relationship With Her Mother In ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’

Source: Collider

Evangeline Lilly returns for the fourth time to the role of Hope van Dyne/The Wasp in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. In anticipation of the threequel, she has been speaking to Hyper Omelete at the CCXP event in Brazil about what fans can expect from her character as she reunites properly with her mother, Janet – also formerly The Wasp – played by Michelle Pfeiffer.

Hope’s unstable relationship with her father, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is made clear in the original Ant-Man from 2015, when her tragic past is revealed. Hope grew up believing that Janet, while on a mission with Hank, was killed due to sacrificing herself for the sake of succeeding in their task, and was resentful of her father for the role he played in her apparent death.

However, 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp built on clues left behind at the climax of Ant-Man to reveal that Janet was alive after all, and she was successfully retrieved from her thirty years in the Quantum Realm before being reunited with her family – briefly, until she was snapped out of existence by Thanos. That’s just bad timing. Fortunately, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) was able to assist the Avengers in restoring the universe, and Lilly has explained her character’s mindset at finally having her protracted reunion with her mother.

Lilly revealed that despite their emotional reunion, their relationship will face certain obstacles, stating:

“So of course, Hope was so excited to get her Mom back. And she was thinking, this is gonna be a fantasy, and I’m going to have my mom, and we’re going to be best friends and we’ll tell each other everything and life will be intimate and my life will be perfect. And life is never perfect, especially with our parents. Especially with parents who spent thirty years in the Quantum realm. And so there’s a lot that Hope doesn’t know, and doesn’t find out about her mom until this journey begins. And it’s a dark and difficult thing to deal with for her.”

Quantumania will finally present Hope with the opportunity to work together with her entire family, as Pfeiffer steps up to a leading role in the film, allowing Hope both the chance to reignite her relationship with her mother, but continue to repair the fractured relationship with her father, while juggling the threat of the menacing Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors).

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania premieres in theaters on February 17. Check out the movie’s trailer and synopsis below.

It seemed the majority of her followers liked her new look, with just a few fans asking what inspired the cut.

But the Lost star didn’t indicate on social media why she cut her hair.

However, she has a number of projects coming up, so the new look could be part of her preparation for any number of roles.

Evangeline has been cast in sci-fi mini-series Albedo about a murder mystery aboard an isolated space station.  The six-part series has yet to set a release date.

She will also star with Armie Hammer, Gary Oldman and Sam Worthington in writer-director Nicholas Jarecki’s drug smuggling drama, Dreamland, due out next year.

And her romantic comedy-drama Happy Life is in pre-production.

When Ant-Man and the Wasp star Evangeline Lilly got stung by an actual wasp

Evangeline Lilly, who played the role of superhero Wasp in Disney-Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, got stung by an actual wasp recently. The irony is not lost on the actress, who is also known for the ABC TV series Lost and Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, as she said on a video she uploaded on Twitter that she had been on a press tour boasting that she’s never been “bitten” by a wasp. Spoke too soon?

Evangeline showed the swelling on her arm as a result of the sting and says she applied toothpaste on the swelling. She looked almost excited as she dropped the bomb. “So, I’ve got my first wasp bite,” she is seen saying in the video. “Which is ironic since I’ve been on a press tour saying I’ve never been bitten by a wasp and have a great relationship with wasps,” she added.

She further added that after she applied toothpaste on the stung area (her wrist), the swelling just shifted lower on her arm. “It’s tripping me out. Anyway, it’s ridiculous. I just got a wasp bite. The Wasp just got bitten by a wasp.” Continue reading When Ant-Man and the Wasp star Evangeline Lilly got stung by an actual wasp

‘Ant-Man’s’ Evangeline Lilly talks The Wasp and stepping up on movie sets

The “Ant-Man” sequel may be about tiny superheroes, but the film is making a big statement about female empowerment by featuring Evangeline Lilly’s The Wasp not only in the title but giving her a larger stake in Marvel’s sprawling movie franchise.

“Ant-Man and The Wasp,” the 20th film in the Marvel cinematic universe that includes “Black Panther,” ″Iron Man” and “Avengers: Infinity War,” is the first one in the series to include a female character in a title role. The prominence of The Wasp, a character who has major roles in the “Ant-Man” and “Avengers” comic books, comes after years of fan anticipation for a female Marvel superhero to get her own film.

“I worked really closely with Evangeline, and we talked about, ‘Now we’re going to have a chance to make a fully formed hero, and we want her to be as dimensional as possible. And we don’t want her to be a hero who is always glammed up with hair and makeup. We wanted her to be a little sweaty. And we want her, like, when that helmet comes off, her hair is in a ponytail, because that’s the practical thing you would do,’” Reed said.

“I wanted her to have a signature style that little girls, like I was when I was a feminine, girly little girl, would be able to fall in love with,” the actress says of her character, the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to get equal billing with a man.

Ant-Man and the Wasp’s Evangeline Lilly calls out male Marvel co-stars for whining about wearing costumes

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.”
