‘Ant-Man’s’ Evangeline Lilly talks women in superhero films: ‘It’s an honor’ to inspire young girls

As the main female character at the heart of “Ant-Man,” Evangeline Lilly knew when she signed on that she’d have to battle more than some burly stuntmen.

She was ready to fight all those genre stereotypes, too.

As the title suggests, Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man is the one doing most of the heavy lifting in the Marvel movie opening Friday. And even with an action veteran like Lilly lending her fists to the cause as Hope Van Dyne, the daughter of a retired costumed crusader, superhero movies still haven’t bridged the gender gap in a single bound.

“I have to say, I have a tendency to wind up in these predominately male casts and I do feel very comfortable in them, I’ve always enjoyed hanging with the guys,” said Lilly, who has proven her action chops dodging a smoke monster on “Lost” and dispatching orcs in “The Hobbit” movies.

Evangeline Lilly Expecting Second Child

We blame Lost. When Evangeline Lilly starred on the cult hit, she became very good at keeping a secret. And the actress showed that she’s lost none of those skills when she surprised everyone on Monday by revealing that she’s pregnant. The actress showed off her baby bump for the first time on the red carpet for the premiere of her new movie, Ant-Man, in Los Angeles.

“It’s so great. I feel wonderful,” Lilly told PEOPLE. “I have to say, high heels and doing a red carpet is starting to ache.”

Wearing a one-shoulder gown, the 35-year-old held her hand over her tummy and gave away a secret that she’s been keeping for a while — she’s expecting her second child with partner Norman Kali, a production assistant she met on the set of Lost.

Evangeline Lilly Introduces Marvel’s Ant-Man Micro-Tech Challenge

While Ant-Man will introduce some fantastic technology to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios is looking at spreading innovation in the real world with the announcement of “Marvel’s Ant-Man Micro-Tech Challenge,” a special contest designed to inspire and encourage scientifically-minded young women nationwide. Marvel has just released a new video featuring star Evangeline Lilly introducing the program. There’s even a few new bits of footage from the “Phase Three” capper itself. Check it out in the player below and find official rules for the contest underneath.

The challenge invites girls nationwide, ages 14 – 18, in grades 9-12, to design and build a DIY project using at least one readily available micro-technology component, which can enable tinkerers, makers, builders and future Imagineers to execute big ideas with a board that fits in their pocket and costs less than a video game. The projects can be utilitarian, artistic or just plain fun.

After completing a project, applicants will be asked to submit a short video demonstrating the project and explaining how it will inspire other girls to pursue interests in science, technology, engineering, or math.

The five winners will each receive: Two round-trip tickets to Southern California, including hotel accommodations, from June 28 through June 30, 2015, to be on the red carpet at the World Premiere of Marvel’s Ant-Man at the Dolby Theatre in Dolby Atmos on June 29, 2015; attend a special “The Evolution of Technology” workshop on June 30 at The Disneyland Resort where they will meet Walt Disney Imagineers who will introduce them to the broader scope of technology and how innovation is inspired during a behind-the-scenes tour of The Disneyland Resort; and receive a tour of the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

Upon completion of the challenge, a STEM-based girls program in each winner’s hometown will be selected to receive “re-create” instructions for each project. Each winner will have the opportunity to lead a workshop in building her project with the girls in the selected program in her community. By sharing their work, the winners will accomplish big things from small beginnings by inspiring other young girls to follow their interests in computing, technology, and engineering.

Entries will be accepted from May 21, 2015 through June 11, 2015. For application forms, eligibility requirements, official contest rules and more information about Marvel’s Ant-Man Micro-Tech Challenge, visit Ant-ManChallenge.com.

Evangeline Lilly Calls Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man More ‘American’

Evangeline Lilly has described Peyton Reed’s version of Ant Man as more ‘American’ than that of Edgar Wright.

Wright was originally on board to direct the latest Marvel movie but left the project due to creative differences in May 2014.

Lilly is set to take on the role of Hope Van Dyne in the film, and says that there were obvious differences between the vision of the two different directors.

Speaking to Empire, the actress said: “I think the most defining difference between the two scripts was that Edgar’s didn’t take itself as seriously.

“It was fun and silly and brilliant irreverent – a romp from beginning to end, in classic English fashion. Whereas where we’ve gotten to is so much more American. There’s tons of levity, but just as much emotion.”

Ant-Man is the second of two Marvel films to hit the big screen this year and will see Reed at the helm of a Marvel film for the first time – needless to say, this is the biggest movie of Reed’s directing career to date.

Rudd is set to take on the role of Scott Lang in the film and he and Lilly are joined on the cast list by Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Pena, and Judy Greer.

Ant-Man is set to be another huge movie for Lilly and is the first time that we have seen her on the big screen since the success of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies at the end of last year.

Ant-Man is one of the new Marvel franchises that we are going to be treated to over the next few years – Doctor Strange and Black Panther are others that are also on the horizon.

It was announced earlier this month that we are going to see Rudd reprise the role of Scott Lang in Captain America: Civil War – filming is already under way.

Ant Man is released 17th July.
