Evangeline Lilly Confirms Wasp Will Appeare In Fourth AVENGERS Film
During a recent interview with Blastr at NYCC, Evangeline Lilly talked a little bit about Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp and confirmed that Wasp will be sitting out of Avengers: Infinity War, but the character is set to appear in the fourth Avengers film after that.
When talking about Ant-Man and the Wasp she explained that it will basically be an origin film for the Wasp, saying:
“I’m excited because its essentially going to be the origin of the Wasp. 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 then revealed that the Wasp is set to appear in the untitled fourth Avengers film and she explained why they saved her for that one:
"Following that one, there’s an Avengers series coming out, I believe its a two-parter, and the Wasp won’t be in the first part, she’ll be in the second part because they want to preserve that reveal for Ant-Man and the Wasp.”
It makes complete sense that Marvel would want to build this character up before they throw her into the mix with a bunch of other superheroes. I loved Ant-Man, and I'm excited for the sequel and the story it will tell! I'm sure we're going to end up seeing some really fun stuff.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is set for release on July 6th, 2018. The fourth Avengers movie will be released in 2019.
