WHEN I THINK ABOUT HIM, [BEN­NING­TON], I SEE HIS FACE, WHICH WAS AL­WAYS SMIL­ING. I THINK ABOUT HIS HEART, WHICH HE WORE ON HIS SLEEVE. JARED LETO, SINGER-AC­TOR

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 WON­DER WOMAN HAS GROWN UP WITH A RO­MAN­TIC IDEA OF THESE AMAZONS ALL AROUND HER AND BAT­TLE AND TRAIN­ING. SHE WANTS TO BE ONE OF THEM. PATTY JENK­INS, FILM­MAKER be­came a size-chang­ing su­per­hero in his own right, ini­tially as Black Go­liath and then as Gi­ant-man.

While an ac­tor’s star­dom often leads their kids and sib­lings to the in­dus­try, Ar­jun Kapoor says his younger sis­ter An­shula (far left) has not shown any in­ter­est in act­ing. Ex­plain­ing why this works to his ad­van­tage, Ar­jun says, “This is good for me at a self­ish level, as she is my au­di­ence. When I talk to her, I get a sense of what peo­ple like to watch in the­atres,” says the ac­tor, whose re­cent film Mubarakan did well at the box of­fice. “She is the first point of con­tact for me, when it comes to giv­ing the script,” he adds. He feels that as An­shula is not em­broiled in the process of mak­ing the (left) film, she can give an im­par­tial opin­ion. Yet when it comes to his films’ re­lease date, An­shula is just like any other loyal fan. “She is still that per­son who will book tick­ets on­line and go and watch the film with ex­cite­ment on a Fri­day or a Satur­day,” says Ar­jun. What about work­ing with his fa­ther, pro­ducer Boney Kapoor in the fu­ture? Ar­jun says, “We have not re­ally thought about it, but in the near fu­ture if there is any­thing ex­cit­ing, which ex­cites him and me, then I am sure we will come to­gether again.” On a lighter note, he adds,“maybe after read­ing this, he will think about it.”
