Evangeline Lilly Reveals Janet Van Dyne’s Superhero Appearance


The superheroine Janet Van Dyne, aka The Wasp, won’t be making any appearances in the upcoming Marvel feature “Ant-Man.” Don’t fret because actress Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope Van Dyne, Janet’s daughter, reveals something about her character’s mother. Read on for further details.

According to Comicbook.com, Lilly shared to Buzzfeed that her “mom” is part of the story and that she was in the heroics business, pretty much as his husband Hank Pym. Pym, who is the first “Ant-Man,” is played by Michael Douglas in the pic.

“I thought Edgar’s idea to blend the [Hank and Scott] stories was brilliant – You’re going to have fans up there who insist that you tell the story of Hank Pym, and fans up there who will be more on the Scott Lang side of it,” told Lilly BuzzFeed in a post from Comicbook website.

She added: “And what’s cool is that, you know, Janet Van Dyne is my mom. Hank Pym is my father. I was raised by two superheroes.”



Evangeline Lilly Talks Ant-Man and Edgar Wright’s Departure

Next year will not only see the release of Marvel’s gigantic sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, but also the long-in-development Ant-Man, which has had a difficult road in getting to the big screen. Few names were ever brought up for the female lead in the film besides Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope Van Dyne in the film, but the actress has revealed that she almost refused to appear in the film.

“Initially, I was like, no way. No way.” Lilly told BuzzFeed. “And then they said, ‘Paul Rudd’s playing the lead.’ And I was like, ‘Oh sh*t. I love Paul Rudd. I really want to work with him!’ So I was like, ‘OK, well, send me the script. I’ll read it and I’ll consider it.’ And then I started watching Marvel [Studios] movies, which I hadn’t done before. … I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to movies — like, the popcorn-munching movies, I never go see them. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought, these are actually incredible — they’re making fantastic films.”

Lilly also spoke about Wright’s departure and that she almost considered walking away after the director did.

“We all, I think, signed on very enthusiastically with Edgar. We were excited to work with Edgar. We were fans of Edgar. So when the split happened, I was in the fortunate position where I had not signed my contract yet. So I had the choice to walk away, and I almost did. Because I thought, Well, if it’s because Marvel are big bullies, and they just want a puppet and not someone with a vision, I’m not interested in being in this movie. Which is what I was afraid of.’

“I finally got the script literally the day before I was supposed to go in for fittings…I saw with my own eyes that Marvel had just pulled the script into their world. I mean, they’ve established a universe, and everyone has come to expect a certain aesthetic [and] a certain feel for Marvel films. And what Edgar was creating was much more in the Edgar Wright camp of films. They were very different. And I feel like, if [Marvel] had created Edgar’s incredible vision — which would have been, like, classic comic book — it would have been such a riot to film [and] it would have been so much fun to watch. [But] it wouldn’t have fit in the Marvel Universe. It would have stuck out like a sore thumb, no matter how good it was. It just would have taken you away from this cohesive universe they’re trying to create. And therefore it ruins the suspended disbelief that they’ve built.”

Evangeline Lilly Lives Her Dream with “The Squickerwonkers”

“The Hobbit” and “Lost” actress Evangeline Lilly spoke with CBR TV’s Steve Sunu at Comic-Con International in San Diego to discuss her new venture — writing children’s books. Lilly brought her debut book, “The Squickerwonkers” featuring art by Weta’s Johnny Fraser-Allen, which actually began for Lilly when she was just 14 years-old. Lilly discusses making the transition from Hollywood actress to author, why she wanted to debut the book during Comic-Con and how “The Hobbit” both connected her to Fraser-Allen and inspired her to finally pursue her passion for writing. She also explains her collaborative process, what it feels like to see her dream realized, her future as an author and how she desperately wants to work with Wes Anderson.

On making the transition from Hollywood actress to children’s book author and why Comic-Con was the right place to debut her first book: It’s a dream come true for me. I’ve been dreaming about being a writer for a really long time. I bided my time and waited for the right moment, and hopefully this is my moment. I love writing. It’s my first and foremost passion and I’ve been fortunate to have a successful career as an actress, but, for me, acting kind of takes the back seat to writing.

That’s why I chose to debut at Comic-Con was because I know that these guys are no bullshit — they’ll tell you if it’s good and they’ll tell you if it’s bad. And if it’s good they’ll love you forever and if it’s bad they’ll never forgive you. [Laughs] I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I wanted to test myself against not only some of the toughest, but also most adoring and loving, fans in the world. And they’re my fans, you know? They’re people who like the kind of stuff I do as an actress so it gave me a safe place to go and be loved and be cared for.




Happy Belated Birthday, Evangeline!
