Evangeline Lilly Eyed For Female Lead in Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’

After already tapping Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Michel Pena to star in “Ant-Man,” Marvel is now in early talks with Evangeline Lilly for the female lead.

Edgar Wright is directing the superhero film with Kevin Feige producing. Wright also co-wrote the script with Joe Cornish.

Plot details are still vague, but fans have suspected Wright is taking a different approach. It is unclear who Lilly would be playing, though some insiders say she would play Pym’s (Douglas) daughter and Lang’s love interest.

Pym didn’t have a daughter in the comics but Cornish and Wright could certainly have switched things up in their version by giving him one.

Marvel had no comment.
