Marvel Studios has just announced that Evageline Lilly will play Hope Van Dyne in Ant-Man. Hope Van Dyne is the daughter of Hank Pym.
“We’ve been fans of Evangeline for years, and couldn’t be more pleased that she’s agreed to join us on Ant-Man’s journey to the big screen,” said Marvel’s Kevin Feige. “We look forward to audiences learning more about her character when she joins forces with Hank Pym and Scott Lang in 2015.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Ant-Man is being direct by Peytron Reed with writer Adam McKay contributing to the film’s script. Ant-Man is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on July 17, 2015.
