Evangeline Lilly Shows Off Her ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Suit in a New Photo
It’s comic legend Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday today, and the whole Marvel world is celebrating. While on set filming the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp, Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope van Dyne a.k.a. the Wasp, posted an extremely cool photo of herself all dressed up in her Wasp suit, and she looks awesome.
Lilly posted the photo on Twitter, along with a birthday message to the late Kirby:
This is pretty much the same getup we saw in that tease of the suit in the first Ant-Man movie (the header image of this article). In this photo, the non-fabric bits of the outfit look more black than gold, which either means they changed it a teeny bit for the new movie or this the new #TheDress and her costume is actually white and gold. She also doesn’t have her wings out or her helmet on, but they’ll probably save that reveal for the actual trailer.
In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.
Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters July 6, 2018.
