Evangeline Lily has posted some photos to her Instagram page from her first day on set with Paul Rudd on Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man” film in San Francisco. The “Lost” and “The Hobbit” actress confirms that she’s officially playing Hope Van Dyne in the film, not ‘Hope Pym’ as Marvel’s Kevin Feige mistakenly referred to her at one point.
More importantly though, Lily’s hair strongly resembles ‘the bob’ haircut worn by the character of Janet Van Dyne, aka. The Wasp, in the comics. Janet was a founding member of The Avengers and partnered with Hank Pym on numerous adventures. In the films though, while we may see Janet in flashback, it does seem like Lily’s character could ultimately become The Wasp on screen.
