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

Paul Rudd is set to star

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. Production is set to start in April.

Plot details are still vague, but fans have suspected Wright is taking a different approach. It is unclear whom Lilly would be playing, though some insiders say she would play the daughter of Pym (Douglas) 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.

Lilly was most recently seen in New Line’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” She is repped by Silver Lining Entertainment.
