Evangeline Lilly Confirms Avengers 4 Role; Talks Ant-Man and The Wasp

The script for Ant-Man and The Wasp, the sequel to last summers hit Ant-Man is currently in development at Marvel although it has not yet been approved by the studio.

The script for Ant-Man and The Wasp, the sequel to last summers hit Ant-Man is currently in development at Marvel although it has not yet been approved by the studio. In an interview with Blastr over the weekend, Lilly talked about how the film is going to be an origin story for her character as Janet Van Dyne becomes ‘The Wasp’ which was teased in the post credits scene of Ant-Man.

Lilly then confirmed that her character will indeed appear in the second part of Avengers: Infinity War. Although Marvel has confirmed that the second part of Infinity War will be branded with a different title, it is most definitely a sequel to Infinity War or at least a direct result of the events that will take place in the film. Ant-Man and The Wasp is slated to drop in between the next two Avengers films so it makes sense that they would wait for her to appear in the second part of Infinity War.

Check out the interview below and let me know what you think about Lilly appearing alongside The Avengers.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters May 4, 2018  followed by Ant-Man and The Wasp on July 6, 2018 and then the Untitled Infinity War sequel on  May 3, 2019.

New ‘Logan’ Image Reveals Villain

The villain for ‘Logan’ has been revealed.

The third Wolverine film titled ‘Logan’ which will be Hugh Jackman’s last outing as the clawed mutant hero has been on a roll the last week revealing images and characters from the upcoming film. Last week we got our first look at a very old Charles Xavier and today the first image of the films villain Donald Pierce A.K.A. White Bishop was revealed.

Pierce is played by Boyd Holbrook, star of the Netflix Original Series Narcos. In the comics the cyborg Pierce was a member of ‘The Hellfire Club’ (first introduced in 2011’s X-Men: First Class) lead by Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon). Pierce challenged the leadership of Shaw and captured Charles Xavier in an attempt to harness his power. After he was defeated by the X-men and expelled by Hellfire he was sent to live in exile in a Hellfire installation in Kentucky until a group of cybernetic mercenaries known as Revears (also rumored to be in the film) broke him out. Pierce then began plotting his revenge against the X-Men and Wolverine.

First Look at Sir Patrick Stewart in ‘Logan’

Yesterday, Hugh Jackman announced that the third Wolverine film will be titled Logan via twitter — just as the films director James Mangold tweeted out a picture of the films official poster along with a photo of the scripts second page.

Today we get another look at the upcoming film in the form of a photo of Sir Patrick Stewart as an even older Charles Xavier. The photo was taken by Mangold himself.

Now before you read any further you should know the following could be considered a spoiler…

According to TheWrap, Professor X will be suffering from a cognitive breakdown. He doesn’t have a full grasp on his abilities anymore, and is also experiencing temporary amnesia as he is unable to remember who Wolverine is at times. It would be interesting if this is going to be a direct result of his powers and the more he uses them — the faster he deteriorates. Stephen Merchant will play the albino mutant Caliban as he assists Wolverine in taking care of the Professor.

Being that the film is based on the “Old Man Logan” comic book storyline, Wolverine will also be older and his powers won’t be what they used to.

The film is set in the year 2024 — when mutant births are in a decline due to unknown causes. The government is turning mutant children into killing machines in some sort of top-secret program called Transigen. The hand seen in the Logan poster belongs to a young girl who is part of the Transigen program. Instead of three claws, she has two. Wolverine is said to be serving as her mentor. Could this young girl be poised to be the first clawed heroine in the X-Men cinematic universe? Is it possible she is X-23? We know this will be Hugh Jackman’s last outing as the hero — leaving a hole to be filled in 20th Century Fox’s Marvel universe.

Logan hits theaters March 3, 2017.
