ANT-MAN Confusion Cleared Up; Now Evangeline Lilly Is Back To 'Hope Van Dyne'

ANT-MAN Confusion Cleared Up; Now Evangeline Lilly Is Back To 'Hope Van Dyne'

It was 'Hope Van Dyne' during Ant-Man's panel at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, and then 'Hope Pym' (the same name as an MC2 villain) in an official press release. Well, Marvel Studios have now confirmed that Evangeline Lilly WILL be playing 'Hope Van Dyne" in the movie...


The cast of Ant-Man claim to have not read the script, so if the finishing touches are still being made, perhaps that's why there's been so much confusion over Evangeline Lilly's role in the movie. Those lucky enough to be at Marvel's panel on Saturday said that she was announced as Hope Van Dyne, but an official press release (which you can read by clicking here) stated otherwise. In fact, the reveal that she would be called Hope Pym, led many of us to believe that Ant-Man would be following the MC2 Universe where Hank and Janet do have a daughter of that name. She ultimately becomes the villainous Red Queen after the death of her parents. However, as you can see below, it has now been 100% confirmed that Evangeline Lilly is Hope Van Dyne, and the original press release from Marvel.com has also been updated to reflect that. Of course, now that Janet Van Dyne's fate has been revealed, we all want to know whether Lilly will be suiting up as The Wasp!
