We still have 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War” between now and 2019’s “Avengers 4,” but details are already coming out about the fourth film in the Avengers series.
Actress Evangeline Lilly, who portrayed Hope van Dyne in 2015’s “Ant-Man,” recently opened up to Blastr about her upcoming involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She laid out the plans for her soon-to-be-superhero character, starting with the “Ant-Man” sequel, “Ant-Man and the Wasp.” With the film slated to debut after “Avengers: Infinity War,” she won’t appear in the third film in the Avengers series. However, we can expect to see her become the Wasp in time for “Avengers 4.”
Lilly explained that “Ant-Man and the Wasp” will be used to develop her character before she teams up with the Avengers.
“I’m excited because it’s essentially going to be the origin of the Wasp,” Lilly told Blastr of the upcoming sequel. “Of course, we’re going to see the Wasp for the first time take on the mantle and put on the suit and fly about and do her thing.”
She explained that appearing in the fourth Avengers film instead of the third will be better for her character. “The Wasp won’t be in the first part,” Lilly said, “she’ll be in the second part because they really want to preserve that reveal for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ so that they can give it its due time.”
The news will may be a little disappointing for fans hoping to see her as the Wasp sooner rather than later, but never fear, because — as always — there will be more than enough heroes to keep “Avengers: Infinity War” exciting.
“Avengers: Infinity War” is scheduled to hit theaters on May 4, 2018, followed by “Ant-Man and the Wasp” on July 6, 2018, and then “Avengers 4” will follow in 2019.
Look who is a mommy again! ‘Ant Man’ star Evangeline Lilly has given birth to her second child with her longtime partner, Norman Kali. The actress coyly made the announcement after she stepped out in a bikini on Oct. 21 and revealed a much flatter stomach!
Congratulations to the happy parents! Evangeline Lilly, 35, and her partner Norman Kali have already welcomed their second child into the world without anyone knowing! While the Ant Man actress kept mum on the day of her child’s delivery, these photos of Evangeline in a bikini prove that she is no longer an expectant mother.
Even though the 35-year-old has yet to publicly announce the birth of her second child, she flaunted her what appears to be post-baby body in a two-piece bikini in Hawaii on Oct. 21. Evangeline looked amazing and tried to remain incognito as she enjoyed the warm weather in Kauai. HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Evangeline’s rep for a comment about the birth of her second child.
The news broke that she was expecting when she flaunted her growing belly at the event. She showed up wearing a skin-hugging, one-shouldered, black and white Halston Heritage gown that definitely didn’t cover up the bump.
“My first one, I was 30, now I’m 35. I’m much more tired this time,” she admitted to People. “The last time I was off work, I had no children, I had a partner who was busy working 18 hours a day, so I had all day to meditate and love on my baby and just be pregnant.”
She added, “This time, I have a 4 year old I’m running around after, I’m working full time and I have a stay-at-home daddy so he’s always around … I just haven’t had the same kind of time to give this my attention.”
Evangeline Wants A Big Family
“What I wanted originally was six kids,” Evangeline previously told Ocean Drive. “I frickin’ love being pregnant. I’m one of the lucky women who just had a blissful pregnancy, but I wanted to adopt four. My partner and I have really been through the ringer in the adoption world and it’s hard, so we’ll see what happens. Life is magically beautiful, and it brings you what is perfect.”
First off we want to say congratulations to Evangeline who announced at the Premiere of Ant Man that she’s expecting her 2nd child! Evi looked absolutely gorgeous at the premiere and the gallery has been updated with HQ photos. Also here’s a clip of one of the interview Evi gave on the red carpet. (small note just want to apologize for any duplicates in the gallery, I don’t really have the time to go thorough 200 plus pictures to try and eliminate any that are the same)
