Evangeline Lilly has been playing Hope van Dyne since Ant-Man from 2014, but she says the character is still hard for her to understand.
Speaking to THR, Lilly said, “the truth is, I have a harder time knowing and understanding Hope than any other character I’ve ever played before.”
Lilly says she will honor Hope in her portrayal of her, but that she is an “odd riddle” for her. According to Lilly, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is about halfway through the film, and this script has helped her get a better grip on the character.
“I would say that after reading the script for the film, I had a kind of eureka moment; I said to [director Peyton Reed], ‘Oh god, I think I’ll finally get her.’ “Three or four movies in, I thought, ‘I think I’m getting it now,'” Lilly said. So I hope that when we get wrapped up and when I watch the movie, I will know the difference. But I do not think others will. I think I’m a good bluffer. “
Hope van Dyne is introduced in Ant-Man. She has a more prominent role in the sequel, where she got the second billing in the title, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and where she takes a lead role alongside Paul Rudd. Lilly also makes an appearance in the Avengers Endgame and expressed the character in an episode of What If …? as a variant in another universe.
Ant-Man 3 was unveiled late last year and is expected to be released on February 17, 2023. Before then, MCU fans can look forward to 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home and Eternals, which will have a “very big impact” on MCU’s future.
