Ant-Man And The Wasp: first look at Evangeline Lilly's hero

Kirsten Howard Simon Brew Den Of Geek Aug 29, 2017

Evangeline Lilly has taken to Twitter to give us a first look at her headline character in Marvel's forthcoming Ant-Man sequel...

We usually celebrate our friends' birthdays by giving them HMV vouchers, or maybe taking the down the pub and buying them half a shandy and a ticket for the meat raffle.

Jack Kirby, arguably one of the greatest comic book artists in American history, obviously deserves a birthday gift of a much higher calibre. Evangeline Lilly therefore took to Twitter over the weekend to celebrate what would have been Jack Kirby's 100th birthday, and gave us all a corking social media gift: a first look at her character, The Wasp, in Marvel's forthcoming Ant-Man And The Wasp.

Lilly will, of course, be starring alongside a returning Paul Rudd. See what you think below.

Adam McKay On Ant-Man And The Wasp: “I’m Talking To Them”

While Adam McKay is certainly no novice when it comes to making successful films – he is the man behind Anchorman, after all – he is currently enjoying something of a surge in interest, following the release of his latest movie, The Big Short. The reason for such interest is that the award-baiting film covers some dramatic ground previously uncharted by the director, who is renowned for his comedy output. But, even while promoting The Big Short, the filmmaker cannot escape questions about Ant-Man And The Wasp.

Adam McKay found himself working with Marvel on the 2015 film Ant-Man after original writer-director Edgar Wright stepped away from the project, and was replaced at the helm by Peyton Reed. McKay was enlisted to work with star Paul Rudd on re-writing the script that had first been delivered by Wright and his collaborator Joe Cornish. With that partnership deemed a success, Vulture asked McKay if

"Haunt" Won't Linger, But It Might Spook You

Buying a house after three kids and their father all met gruesome ends while living there is apparently nothing to be squeamish about for the Ashers, the family at the center of the horror film Haunt. Rather, they jump at the chance to purchase the supposedly cursed Morello home after former pediatrician Dr. Morello (the divinely weird Jacki Weaver, best known as the matriarch of Silver Linings Playbook) decides that losing her entire family in a variety of tragic and disturbing ways is enough of a reason to get out. Like the Morellos, the Ashers also have three children. And like the Morellos, they too will soon discover that the big, beautiful old house has a dark, ugly spirit inhabiting it.

Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari In Negotiations For ‘Ant-Man’ Rewrite

The duo behind Sony’s upcoming take on Sabrina The Teenage Witch are in negotiations to take a stab at the script for Marvel’s tiniest hero. Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari made the 2010 Black List fresh out of Nyu with Die In A Gunfight and later scored the scripting gig on the horror pic Haunt. Now the pair is eyed to rewrite Ant-Man for director Peyton Reed, who replaced Edgar Wright last month. Adam McKay did the most recent pass on the script about the shrinking superhero. Marvel wouldn’t comment. Barrer & Ferrari are repped by Wme and Caliber Media. […]

More New Writers Tackle Ant-Man Screenplay

More New Writers Tackle Ant-Man Screenplay
It has a cast that includes Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, but Ant-Man apparently still doesn't have a screenplay that Marvel Studios are happy with. Following the departure of Edgar Wright over creative differences, and a subsequent pass by Adam McKay, the latest draft has been taken on by the writing team of Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.The pair landed themselves on the buzzy Black List for 2010, right after graduating from Nyu, with the screenplay for their still un-produced drama Die In A Gunfight. They've since had their horror pic Haunt (not to be confused with Vincenzo Natali's Haunter) brought to the screen with Harrison Gilbertson in the lead, and they've also been at work on Jonathan Levine's Legend and the developing Sabrina The Teenage Witch reboot.Too many cooks, or necessary triage? Whatever's going on, Marvel and new director Peyton Reed are clearly finding Ant-Man a particularly tough nut to crack.

Haunt Mostly Disappears in the Haunted House Horror Genre: A Movie Review

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by IFC Films. Director: Mac Carter. Writer: Andrew Barrer. Cast: Harrison Gilbertson, Liana Liberato, Jacki Weaver and Ione Skye. Haunt is an indie horror feature from first time director Mac Carter. As well, the film was developed from one of writer Andrew Barrer's first scripts. And, the central cast is a young twosome: Liana Liberato and Harrison Gilbertson. All of this newness should create for a few interesting bits. But, Haunt is a fairly straight-forward haunted house horror tale. Only a few jump scares and an interesting late reveal, in the story department, create any intrigue. Haunt needed a few more shocks and surprises along the way to break up the film's tedium. In the story, a large manor serves as the film's focal point. Here, the Morello family were cursed by spirits of a netherworld. Five family members were tormented,
