Actor Evangeline Lilly is back as Hope Van Dyne in the upcoming Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, a film focused on the miniature Marvel hero. This time, they all journey to the Quantum Realm for an unknown purpose, where they run against Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), one of the most problematic Marvel comic book villains ever. Evangeline Lilly talks about the possibility of a Wasp solo film.
Evangeline Lilly talks about the possibility of a Wasp solo film.
In a recent press conference, Lilly expressed her excitement about the possibility of her character having a more prominent role in future films. When asked by the press if a Wasp film (without Ant-Man) was possible, Evangeline Lilly said, “I’m going to make a pitch that — I think — it might be time for a Hope spinoff,” Lilly explained. “For a Wasp standalone film. Do we agree? do we agree? Anyone going to buy that?”
It would be great to see a film that gives more attention to the character of Hope Van Dyne. Such a production would align with the current trend of empowering female characters and provide fans with a deeper understanding of this beloved heroine, who has the potential to evoke strong emotions and deliver surprising moments.
