Evangeline Lilly Looking Very Wasp-like

Actress Evangeline Lilly has been cast in the upcoming Ant-Man film as Hope Van Dyne, the daughter of Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym. With the movie now filming in San Francisco, Lilly posted photos on Instagram of her new hair and of her with co-star Paul Rudd. The new haircut does lend itself to the idea that she will end up being the Wasp, who has mostly been portrayed with short hair. Whether that comes up in the initial movie that is already slated to have two shrinking characters (Ant-Man and Yellowjacket) or just set up for a sequel remains to be seen.

This seems like the way for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to bring in the Wasp character and avoid all the negative connection to the spousal abuse issues from the comics between Hank and Janet.
