AceShowbiz - Evangeline Lilly may have revealed a key point of upcoming "Ant-Man and the Wasp". During an interview with Vanity Fair, the actress talked about the "Ant-Man" sequel and expressed her opinions about where Marvel Cinematic Universe would be heading after "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers 4".
"When I heard about 'Infinity War' and the direction that they're heading, I did have this moment of realizing, oh wow, there's a bit of deja vu for me with the 'Lost' franchise. We are hitting that season 4 space where everything's about to shift and you're about to lose the solid ground underneath you. And ['Ant-Man and the Wasp'], of course, will play a part in that," said Lilly.
The actress continued explaining about heroes in "Ant-Man" who not only have impeccable physical strength, but also vast scientific knowledge, "Those characters are experts in the quantum realm. In 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', they are trying everything in their power to safely enter the quantum realm and return back from it because they have evidence from the first film that Scott Lang was able to do that. If he can do it, why can't we? If we do succeed in 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', then that does open a whole entire new multi-verse to enter into and play around in. I'm not the story creator, so I can't tell you what they're going to do with that. But I definitely see the potential there."
In the first film, "Ant-Man" showed that Hope Van Dyne's (Lilly) mother was lost in the Quantum Realm after shrinking too much in order to diffuse a bomb. It seems that in the "Ant-Man" sequel, Hope will have a trip to Quantum Realm in order to rescue her mother. Additionally, judging from set photos that featured Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne, the film will seemingly have some flashbacks and flash-forwards.
"Ant-Man and the Wasp" is set for a July 6, 2018 U.S. release. The film, directed by Peyton Reed, stars Paul Rudd who reprises his role as Scott Lang a.k.a. Ant-Man, Michael Pena, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer and Academy Award nominee Laurence Fishburne.
