As we enter 2018, comic book movie fans have a lot to look forward to! Black Panther comes out in February, Avengers: Infinity War debuts in March, and even after that incredible feast of epicness we still get the desert course of Ant-Man And The Wasp in the beginning of July. 2018 is shipping up to be one heck of a ride…
Fans have been clamoring for more of Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp character for quite some time, and thanks to Reddit, we now have a better idea of what her suit may look like in next year’s film.
The image – as seen above – comes to us from a Russian calendar which is promoting next year’s Marvel films. Fans of the Wasp in the comic books have already expressed excitement over the suit’s gold detailing, which seems to draw inspiration right off the page. What is interesting is that we seem to have conflicting designs for the outfit in the film. Fans might remember that in the post credits scene of Ant-Man, we were surprised with the first look at Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp suit (top). Then, not too long ago, Evangeline Lilly took to her Twitter account to show us our first look at her outfit in the new film (bottom).
Fan reactions blew up immediately upon seeing the Twitter post, as it lacked her signature gold coloring. She is modeled after a wasp after all! But breathe easily…and trust in Marvel. Seriously guys how often do they let us down with costumes? (psssst… Inhumans doesn’t count). The discrepancy in design could come from several reasons. Lilly may wear multiple outfits in the film. Or, the gold coloring might be a detail that is added in post-production. If the latter is the case, then that would easily explain why we haven’t seen it in the Twitter post or in set photos.
Either way, we think it looks pretty great. Evangeline Lilly is set to star alongside an all-star cast featuring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Michael Pena, Michelle Pfeiffer, Lawrence Fishburne, Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen and more… So whether you’re Russian or not, go out and purchase a calendar so that you can mark July 6, 2018 for the release date of Ant-Man And The Wasp.
