After seemingly months of rumours, Variety is reporting that Evangeline Lilly has finally joined Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man. Not only that, it appears that she may be about to be joined by House of Cards‘ Corey Stoll. It’s not confirmed what roles either will be playing, but it’s presumed that Lily will be a love interest for Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang and/or the daughter of Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym. It appears the chances of Lily playing Wasp are slim to none.
As well as the aforementioned names, Michael Pena and Patrick Wilson are both in advanced talks to join the movie.
Directed by Edgar Wright, Ant-Man will kick off Marvel’s Phase Three of films on 17th July, 2015.
