Evangeline Lilly denies role in Ant-man

July 23rd, 2014 by Marc Comments

Ok, we’re a little delicate about this news, ok? We don’t really want to discuss it…

We, as did pretty much everyone else, took it as a given that the very lovely Evangeline Lilly, from Lost and the Hobbit, was going to be appearing in Ant-man. Hell, we were sure she was going to be Wasp. But it seems that we were wrong.

Darkhorizons, via Slashfilm, has conformed that the actress, asked if she could confirm the role, replied: “No, I can’t. I don’t know anything about those rumors.”

Now, she may be being coy as there are rumours Marvel will be putting their Ant-man cast on the stage this weekend and she will be there for The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies… but who knows.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
