Possible New ANT-MAN Story Details; Will 'Hope Van Dyne' Suit Up As 'The Wasp'?
Some new plot details for Ant-Man have seemingly found their way online, and they go some way in answering our lingering questions about the movie, including whether or not we'll see Evangeline Lilly's Hope Van Dyne as The Wasp and the fate of Janet Van Dyne...
Badass Digest have clearly been privy to Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish's Ant-Man script as they reveal more details about the upcoming movie in a report on Evangeline Lilly's Wasp-like haircut seen earlier today for the first time. Though the site cautions that they have not seen the most recent draft since Peyton Reed joined as director and Adam McKay and a number of other writers did some rewrites, the original version did not have Hope getting involved in any sort of superheroing dutues, adding that any recent changes likely wouldn't have altered that as: "I suspect that the large adjustments to VFX would make that unlikely." Of course, Ant-Man could end with Lilly deciding to (presumably) follow in her mother's footsteps by becoming The Wasp and fighting crime alongside Hank Pym's predecessor, Scott Lang. Talking of Janet Van Dyne, the site claims that the previous drafts of the movie say only that she is "gone" and not dead. Intriguing, wouldn't you say? Keeping the focus on Lang makes sense for now, but it seems like a missed opportunity if Marvel Studios don't bring one of their best female sueprheroes to the big screen!
