ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Star Evangeline Lilly On Whether Hope Should Regularly Change Costumes

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Star Evangeline Lilly On Whether Hope Should Regularly Change Costumes

Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe tend to change their costume frequently, but now Ant-Man and the Wasp star Evangeline Lilly comments on whether getting a new super suit fits Hope's personality...

Those of you familiar with the comic book incarnation of the Wasp likely know that the hero has the habit of changing her costume, so much so it's difficult to identify one look as her classic outfit. But with only one film spent suited up, it's unclear if Evangeline Lilly's Hope van Dyne has this same characteristic.

However, while appearing at Fan Expo Boston, the Ant-Man and the Wasp star shared (via ComicBook.com) her thoughts on the idea of Hope donning a new suit and noted a big difference between her character and the Janet van Dyne in the comics.


"In the original comic books, she was a fashion designer. Janet Van Dyne was a fashion designer, and she loved to change her costume. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with women liking clothes. I like clothes! But for me, it would be such a distraction from Hope being a very serious, no nonsense scientist. I don’t think she cares that much about what she puts on her body. I think that when she goes to the store, she chooses things that are practical. Whatever she needs to get done, that’s what goes on her body. She goes home and gets done what has to be done. So if Hope was a fashion designer, okay, maybe that’d be fun. But she’s a scientist, so no."

Considering everything we've seen from the character so far, Lilly's response makes a lot of sense. Though, with Marvel's history of altering costumes between films, they'll probably find a reason to give her a new outfit that stays true to Hope's pragmatic attitude

But what do you think? Would you like to see Wasp in a new costume? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
