[Movies] Evangeline Lily In Talks For Female Lead in Ant-Man Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.05.2014
But who will she play?
She had a thing for a dwarf as Tauriel, and now Evangeline Lily could be looking small again for her next movie boyfriend. Variety reports that Lily (LOST, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) is in early talks to play the female lead in Ant-Man opposite Paul Rudd. Lily would join Rudd, Michael Douglas and Michel Pena in the Edgar Wright-directed Marvel film.
Who Lily is playing specifically is up for some debate; some insiders are saying that she will play Hank Pym's (Douglas) daughter and Scott Lang's (Rudd) girlfriend. Only problem: Hank Pym has no daughter in the comic books, so that would be a new development specifically for the Cinematic Universe. Scott did date Jessica Jones for a while, though Jones is set for her own TV series on Netflix and thus if Lily were cast in that role it would have to be for the film and series.
