During a podcast interview with Empire magazine last week, Evangeline Lilly revealed new Ant-Man details about her role as Hope Van Dyne, as well the character's relationship with mom and dad, Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne. However, Lilly was first asked what it was like to play the daughter of two-time Oscar winner Michael Douglas. "When I first signed on, It didn't really occur to me how monumental or what a big deal that was," she said. "I just thought 'Oh great, Michael? Paul [Rudd]? Wonderful; great cast'. I'm very clinical about deciding what roles I'll take, so I've sort of been checking boxes, and Michael became a box I checked. [I thought] 'Okay great, they've cast that one well...moving on' and I carried on with my process of checks and balances. And then I got to work [on-set] and started working with him, and then about halfway through shooting, »
Ant-Man really does feel like the red-headed stepchild of the Marvel franchise right now. I know it hasn't been forgotten and we'll hear more about it in the not-too-distant future, but right now it has the misfortune of coming off the heels of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it's not considered big enough to kick off Phase Three (which will begin with Captain America: Civil War). That's not to mention the production drama that went down before filming. But that doesn't mean the movie won't be good, and I'm excited to see a film that looks different from anything we've seen before in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Evangeline Lilly is excited too, and she recently commented on the upcoming superhero movie. Hit the jump for what she had to say. Ant-Man opens July 17, 2015, and also stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip "Ti" Harris, David Dastmalchian, »

Potential Minor Spoiler Ahead
"I've been astounded to discover how good to their teams and crew that Marvel are. They're so collaborative, so smart with their stories. They have rich, dynamic characters which are so much fun to play. I expected I'd be a cog in the wheel of a big machine - I wasn't sure I'd like this experience. But I've been so astounded at how pleasurable the whole experience has been.

Evangeline Lilly collects cool souvenirs from sets of her movies. The 'Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies' actress can't resist taking home souvenirs from the sets of her movies so she has a lasting reminder of her time on the project, even if her bosses don't realise. She said: ''On 'Ant-Man', I took a rubber stamp from the office of Hank Pym, who's played by Michael Douglas. ''I'm a bit of a pick-pocket on-set. If something is small enough to go in my pocket and it will be neat memorabilia, it's gone.'' Away from work, the 35-year-old beauty loves spending time with her three-year-old son Kahekili - who she has with partner Norman Kali - though she admits the youngster's interactions with other people are sometimes awkward.

Michael Douglas and his ex-wife Diandra Luker have put their luxury estate on the market for around £40 million. The couple, who were married from 1977 to 2000, share the property in Valldemossa, on the west coast of Mallorca, during the year, with the 'Falling Down' actor having it from January to June, while Diandra has it for the remainder of the year. The 247-acre property features a pool, 11 bedrooms and access to the Mediterranean, and according to Zillow, is where Michael's wife, Welsh actor Catherine Zeta-Jones, 45, had been staying during her separation from her 69-year-old husband.

Earlier this year, meanwhile, Diandra moved to quell speculation that Catherine was keen to acquire her share of the luxurious property, insisting she hadn't made any offer for her stake in the house. She said: ''It's not true. Sometimes people say things »
Marvel’s Ant-Man got off to a rough start when original director Edgar Wright, who was working on the project from 2006, left over creative differences. Since his departure Peyton Reed took over and now in an interview with IGN to promote The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, star Evangeline Lilly has Peyton Reed as the new director:
“He was a delight. He actually in some ways reminded me a bit of Peter [Jackson],” she said “He had a fantastic sense of humour, was extremely immersed in the comic world all his life, is a big fan-boy but also extremely strong in his vision. He knew what he needed, and he knew if we had it or if we didn’t have it, and it’s such a huge luxury as an actor to know that your director really knows what he wants. He knows when he’s got it »

Avengers: Age of Ultron is unquestionably Marvel’s big event next summer but they are also releasing a film that has been a long time in the making: Ant-Man.

Nonetheless, Marvel has moved with the production of the film and now, it has released an official synopsis. Read it below:

With principal photography on Marvel’s Ant-Man coming to an end this week, the post-production work begins. The mammoth task of compiling live-action footage together with the CGI components is but one element of that process. Perhaps the biggest matter for the studio to contend with is audience awareness. Ant-Man is arguably one of their zanier properties, that doesn’t yet carry the same household name weight as The Avengers or Iron Man. To ensure the moviegoing public know exactly who this little guy is come next summer, the marketing machine has fired out the first official synopsis.
Running down the events we can expect to see in the comic book caper, it confirms a slew of cast members who were previously only rumoured to be involved. The most interesting part is the writing credit; which currently says Tbd. After original writer-director Edgar Wright left the project, the script was »

When Marvel's Ant-Man started production back in August, the studio released a brief synopsis for this Phase Two adventure. The plot rundown was updated slightly last month, changing Paul Rudd's Scott Lang from a "con man" to a "master thief," but didn't offer any new story details.

Take a look at the plot rundown below, which also includes character names for Judy Greer, who is playing Scott Lang's ex-wife, T.I. and David Dastmalchian.

Director Joe Wright's movie will now arrive in cinemas on July 24, reports Movieweb.
Earlier today, WB announced that Pan, a film starring Hugh Jackman ("The Wolverine"), will be released in theaters July 24, 2015. That's a week later then it was originally scheduled for, but keeps it from battling Marvel's Ant-Man on July 17, 2015. Pan will now have to open against Sony's Pixels, Fox's Poltergeist remake, and Universal’s next Judd Apatow-comedy, Trainwreck. At the end of the day can you really blame WB for making this move? Many people in 2014 underestimated the power of the Marvel brand, but that soon changed when a film featuring a talking plant and raccoon (Guardians of the Galaxy) dominated the box office. To me, WB made a wise decision. Ant-Man is being directed by Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Pym, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross/Yellowjacket and Michael Douglas (Hank Pym). From Warner Bros. Pictures comes, “Pan,” a live-action Peter »
