Evangeline Lilly

While promoting The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Ant-Man star Evangeline Lilly spoke about her hesitation of working on the film following the departure of director Edgar Wright. Now, Lilly has opened up about another unfounded fear she had on the film, that she’d just be another cog in a machine.

ant-man-poster marvel Paul Rudd Michael Douglas“I’ve been astounded to discover how good to their teams and crew that Marvel are,” she tells CNN. “They’re so collaborative, so smart with their stories. They have rich, dynamic characters which are so much fun to play. I expected I’d be a cog in the wheel of a big machine — I wasn’t sure I’d like this experience. But I’ve been so astounded at how pleasurable the whole experience has been.”

Lilly is playing Hope Van Dyne, daughter to Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). Here’s what she had to say: “[Hope] is the daughter of the founders of The Avengers, Ant-Man and the Wasp. She is a very talented, intelligent, capable woman and a force to be reckoned with.

Lilly went on to elaborate on the film as a heist movie, which it has been described as since Edgar Wright was on board, saying:

“This one is very much a heist film. It has all the fun, tension and drama of a good heist film. The heist is being masterminded by myself, my father and Scott Lang.”

The Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength. Master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, 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 stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly , Corey Stoll, Michael Douglas, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Judy Greer, Tip “Ti” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, and Jordi Mollà.

The Peyton Reed-directed film will open in theaters on July 17, 2015.
