Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania star Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope van Dyne, a.k.a. The Wasp, has teased that while the threequel is the “hardest one we’ve made” so far, it could possibly be “the best one yet.”
“We finished filming at the end of November, and I think, hands down, it was the hardest one we’ve made. It was the most difficult. It was the only one we’ve made during the Covid lockdowns,” Lilly explained in an interview with The Digital Fix. “That just adds such an incredible complication to making a movie. It adds a lot of stress. It makes things very impersonal because you can’t see faces.”
She added, “Film sets are already impersonal enough, there is so much that goes on and so much that has to get done in a short amount of time, and the intensity level is really, really high. So it was a very trying experience doing the film with Covid measures … But I actually think… what we did, the stuff we shot, the material we managed to get, I think it might be the best one yet.”
While plot details for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania are being kept under wraps, we do know that Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country) is set to star as the villain Kang the Conqueror once again after the actor played a Kang variant in Marvel’s Loki series – who was revealed to be the mastermind behind the TVA.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is being directed by Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet Van Dyne), and Corey Stoll (Darren Cross/Yellowjacket) along with MCU new additions Kathryn Newton (Freaky) as Cassie Lang, Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country) as Kang the Conqueror, and Bill Murray.
