Evangeline Lilly May’ve Just Spoiled Ant-Man And The Wasp

Evangeline Lilly may have accidentally spoiled some of Peyton Reed's upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp in a recent Instagram post.

While Avengers: Infinity War irrefutably redefined the Marvel team-up movie back in April, the Powers That Be are about to go all-in on their second ensemble pic of 2018: Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Headed up by Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly as the titular, crime-fighting duo, Peyton Reed’s upcoming sequel puts our heroes on a collision course with Ghost, the elusive supervillain set to be played by the so-hot-right-now Hannah John-Kamen (Tomb RaiderReady Player One).

She’s not the only big-name addition to the fold, of course, as Ant-Man and the Wasp also features Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, an incredibly intelligent lab assistant and future heir to the mantle of Giant-Man. Foster can only grow to 21 feet, but be that as it may, he could still prove to be a thorn in Scott Lang’s side.

Why’s that, you ask? Well, because if Evangeline Lilly is to be believed, he could just end up taking a villainous turn. Hopping on Instagram recently, the actress posted the following caption:

For those of you who are confused – we had to win the senate before we could tackle the house. We DID win the senate and that was INCREDIBLE, now let’s do it all over again. That was Goliath, now we’re facing Thanos. Don’t let them censor and throttle us. Let’s get loud. Let’s win again. #netneutrality#battleforthenet (swipe right). LINK IN BIO!

What’s interesting here is her mention of Goliath, with many interpreting it at as a reference to him being an antagonist in the upcoming sequel. Then again, she might just be referring to the biblical Goliath, so don’t get too excited just yet. Either way, we’re certainly looking forward to seeing Fishburne in the MCU, and the actor seems eager to dip his toe back into the realm of comic book movies, too, saying the following recently:

I was a comic book reader when I was a kid. I was mostly a Marvel guy but I also loved the DC Comics. I also loved the DC universe. I bought comics from both universes and then subsequently bought comics from other labels that grew out of DC and Marvel. Vertigo, and Dark Horse, whatever. I’ve been watching the Marvel movies for a long time and I’ve imagined and dreamt and fantasized that one day I would be lucky enough to be in the Marvel Universe and that day has come.

Promising twice the fun and another breathless monologue from Michael Peña’s Luis, Ant-Man and the Wasp is expected to make a beeline for theaters on July 6th.
