We're not really in that golden age of family films anymore and yet here comes Ant-Man and the Wasp, proving that family-oriented adventure stories are indeed alive and well in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So that was very much in the early development of the movie where we wanted to take things and including the villain in that. At first I thought, Ant-Man?
"The Wasp costume that you saw at the end of the first film was an old prototype from the 1980s; so people have been chattering online saying 'wait a minute, the costume you seen Evangeline wearing looks totally different, '" Lilly explained. And according to Lilly during an interview with BackstageOL, they just don't know what a female goes through on a daily basis. There are many, many innovative uses of Pym's shrinking technology, not just in the form of Ant-Man and the Wasp, but with buildings, cars, toys, you name it. He later said, "I think there is reference to that in the comic as well that Valkyrie is bi".
"I was like, 'Are they going to give me a movie?"
"We always knew that the next one was going to be Ant-Man and the Wasp", Kevin Feige, the president of Disney-owned Marvel Studios, told AFP at a global press day for the movie in Pasadena, southern California on Sunday. I sit up and wanna feel more heroic when I see her doing these things.
Regarding the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, which saw Ant-Man head off to Germany and get arrested without Wasp, Evangeline Lilly reveals as a result, Hope and Scott are no longer together.
"Again, I think that probably usually falls back on how I would make choices and what my experiences have been, because I need to relate to my characters". Then I saw Ant-Man, and I really loved it. "And they were like, 'Now we're shooting it, go!' and we were like 'How are we supposed to interpret that?'"
Instead, we have a sequel directed by the perfectly serviceable and no doubt hard-working Peyton Reed, who chops up every single scene into easily-digestible bits that make it easy to forget you're watching a movie that is, predominantly, fascinated by having fun with the size of its superhero. Whether it's riding a ride surrounded by the characters or it's waiting in line seeing the Dora march out and Panther arrive-it is pretty incredible.
Perhaps inevitably, the novelty of the action sequences - that ability to grow and shrink at will - has lost some of its freshness compared to Ant-Man's previous outings.
