Now that we have Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Hollyood has turned our casting attention back to Marvel, with an update on Edgar Wright's Ant-Man with Variety reporting that former Lost star Evangeline Lilly is in talks to join the film as a romantic lead. Fans of the comic will undoubtedly remember Ant Man's wife and cohort Janet van Dyne aka Wasp as a regular member of The Avengers, so seeing her suit up in the Ant-Man stand alone is expected.
It does sound as though Wright is changing the book signifigantly, making Janet the daughter of Hank Pym, rather than romantic interest. But with the news that Paul Rudd will be playing Scott Lang the theif who stole the supre suit from an aging Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas), putting Wasp in a younger role seems logical enough.
Personally I would prefer the often rumored Rashida Jones over Evangeline Lilly. What do you think?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The duo that brought us 'This is the End' is teaming up with Breaking Bad co-producer and writer Sam Catlin to adapt a television-version of Preacher, a comic series of the 1990s.
Preacher tells the story of Jesse Custer, a preacher in the small Texas town of Annville. Custer was accidentally possessed by the supernatural creature named Genesis in an incident which killed his entire congregation and flattened his church. Genesis, the product of the unauthorized, unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon, is an infant with no sense of individual will. However, as it is composed of both pure goodness and pure evil, it might have enough power to rival that of God Himself. In other words, Jesse Custer, bonded to Genesis, may have become the most powerful being in the whole of living existence.
