    Default Evangeline Lilly Reportedly Up for "Ant-Man" Role

    The "Lost" and "Hobbit" alum is in "early talks" for the female lead in Marvel Studios' 2015 "Ant-Man" film, according to a report.

    Fairly good news, this, comes off as someone who'd do well in the female, whatever role this may be. If it's Jan, Scotts' daughter (Cassie?),, probably not Jocasta.

    Was happy with her in Desolation Of Smaug.

    If what they're saying is true, then this would be a big departure to the comic book versions of the character.

    I just hope they develop her into some costumed super heroine - not just another "girlfriend" role.

    A way to give Janet a connection to Hank is to have her a student he may have had a fling/affair with. Either that or have her a SHIELD agent with no connection to Hank thats sent to capture Scott

    My favorite woman in the world that I don't know? Ant-man may end up being my favorite MCU movie for the most ridiculous reason of all ...
    Keaton always said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me are people that think Final Crisis is good.

    Oh my gosh.....that's the perfect casting choice for Janet van Dyne.

    I know that Rashida Jones was never officially cast, but it's been RUMORED for so long that almost any other choice (even a perfectly fine choice like this) is going to feel like a disappointment.

    I suspect that they'll get around the age issue by making Janet Hank's daughter. It still gives her a connection to him and he can even still give her her powers.

    I never thought Rashida Jones was a good choice. Part of me was hoping for an "Overnight Delivery" reunion with Reese Witherspoon. ;) (yeah, and also "How Do You Know")

    Let's hope we'll finally get to see the Wasp onscreen - I feel that Lilly could totally pull it off. Then all original Avengers will finally be represented!

    i wanted Rashida Jones to be in this. but i'll accept Evangeline Lilly simply because i trust Edgar Wright's artistic vision. and i fully expect her to be Pym's daughter in this. if you look at all of the rumored candidates, they've all had cleft chins like Douglas.

    don't forget Monsters vs Aliens. it's slightly more topical.

    I hope this movie doesn't influence the Marvel 616 canon.
