Evangeline Lilly gave fans a first look on Monday at her Wasp costume in much-awaited Marvel sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp.
The 38-year-old actress shared the photo on Twitter as part of a tribute post to late legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby, on his 100th birthday.
“I am honoured to be on set today playing #TheWasp on what would be Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday. #ThankYouJackKirby #AntManAndTheWasp,” Lilly wrote.
Kirby and Stan Lee created the character of Janet van Dyne, who was the original Wasp in the early 1960’s. Lilly plays Hope van Dyne, Janet’s daughter with Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). Pym was the original Ant-Man before retiring, and later training Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as his replacement in Ant-Man, according to ET.
Marvel Studios announced that Michelle Pfeiffer will play the role of Pym’s long-lost wife Janet van Dyne during the San Diego Comic-Con last month.
The sequel also stars Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo. Directed by Peyton Reed, the superhero movie flies into theatres on July 6, 2018, Deadline reports.
