Lilly shares first look as the Wasp
Canadian actor Evangeline Lilly (right) celebrated Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday in a special and unique way. The actor, who will be next seen in the sequel of Marvel’s 2015 Ant-Man titled Ant-Man and the Wasp shared the first photo of herself wearing her Wasp costume. She shared the photo on Twitter and captioned it. “I am honoured to be on set today playing #TheWasp on what would be Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday.” Kirby co-created Janet van Dyne (the original Wasp) along with Stan Lee back in 1963. Lilly plays Hope, the daughter of Janet van Dyne and Hank Pym (the original Ant-Man). The film would also include original Wasp Janet van Dyne, to be played by Michelle Pfeiffer. Paul Rudd will reprise the role of Ant Man in Peyton Reed’s directorial, with Michael Douglas returning as Hank Pym. Laurence Fishburne is joining the series as Bill Foster, who, in the comics, worked as a scientist alongside Hank and later became a size-changing superhero in his own right, initially as Black Goliath and then as Giant-Man.
