After the recent news that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has started filming in Turkey, we have news that Evangeline Lilly is looking at a different side of her character, The Wasp, than what we have seen already.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is expected to hit theatres in 2022 and will see the return of many beloved characters joining Evangeline Lilly, like Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne. We will also see newcomers Jonathan Majors who will be joining the cast as Kang the Conqueror and Kathryn Newton who will play the now older Cassie Lang.

In a recent interview with Beyond the Mouse, Lilly discussed a new direction and side to her character.

I find myself pushing against this tough badass chick thing,” Lilly explained. “Which is really interesting because at the beginning of my career I was pushing that so hard. I was like Kate [from LOST] is going to be badass. She’s going to keep up with all the guys. She is going to be capable and strong. And then this whole massive shift in the industry happened. Suddenly these characters were everywhere. I guess I must be a contrarian by nature. Because I find myself going ‘well hang on a minute.’ We’re all so fragile and vulnerable and small and soft. And I find myself going ‘Woah, we aren’t supposed to just be men with boobs’. Like what does it mean to be a woman? That question of what does it mean to be a woman is extremely important right now. What I think is crucial is that we’re exploring that right now through our stories.

I’m really excited. I can’t give anything away but I think, my hunch is, I may have manifested something in that space in the Marvel world with Hope van Dyne. Because I think the direction we’re going with her might be very satisfying for me in that way.

If things continue as planned, 2022 will be a huge year for the MCU in regards to theatrical releases. Thor: Love and Thunder is expected in theaters on May 6th, Black Panther 2 on July 8th, and Captain Marvel 2 on November 11th.
