Big Ant-Man news (and maybe some spoilers) is coming from Hall H and the Marvel Studios panel. Former Lost star, Evangeline Lilly finally has a role to announce, she's playing Hope van Dyne, Hank Pym's daughter. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is the man who invented the shrinking technology, aka Pym Particles, and now he's taken Paul Rudd's character, Scott Lang, under his wing to eventually take over the business.

But Rudd isn't his first mentee. They also announced that House of Cards star, Corey Stoll is playing Pym's business partner, Darren Cross who is using the company for nefarious purposes. It also sounds like he'll be using the Pym Particles to transform himself into Yellowjacket, the big villain of the movie.

It's a good thing I liked Iron Man 1, since apparently they're just recycling the plot.

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?

It might not seem important that Evangeline Lilly got a haircut, but The Wasp is arguably more important in The Avengers universe than her main squeeze, Ant-Man. She's been there since the beginning and stuck around longer than Pym or Lang.

We still don't know if Lilly's character, Hope van Dyne will don the titular wings, but this haircut is one step closer.
