Evangeline Lilly Potentially Joining 'Ant-Man'

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?

Paul Rudd is officially the star for Marvel's first Phase 3 (movies released after Avengers 2) film, Ant-Man. Directed by Shaun of the Dead's Edgar Wright, Ant-Man will take a more comedic approach, following the exploits of a man who can shrink to the size of an ant. His co-hort and girlfriend, The Wasp will likely make an appearance, and it's rumored she will be played by Rudd's former co-star Rashida Jones.

The movie is set to release summer 2015. Also, be prepared for likely eventuality of Rudd joining Avengers 3.
