With Ant-Man and the Wasp coming out two months after Avengers: Infinity War, it’s pretty obvious the films will have some connections. But star Evangeline Lilly has an even bigger idea of how the events in her film could impact the Marvel Cinematic Universe for years to come.
The Marvel Universe has a brand new Wasp—and now she’s stepping out into the spotlight of her own ongoing series. Nadia Pym is the Unstoppable Wasp, and we sat down with series writer Jeremy Whitley to discuss what she’ll be up to, her scientific legacy, and bringing a new female hero to Marvel Comics.
Poor Peyton Reed. The director just wants to have his own, small part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to himself and his ant-based hero. He’s honestly disappointed that Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) are showing up in other Marvel movies.
When we revealed the first details of the mysterious new figure taking on the iconic mantle of the Wasp earlier this year, there was still so much we didn’t know about her. Now the character has now made her official debut in All-New, All-Different Avengers #9, and her surprising identity has been revealed.
Janet Van Dyne’s legacy as the Wasp is interwoven through decades of Marvel Comics—but now, a new character is going to take the moniker. Who is she? What’s her agenda? What’s her connection to the Wasp’s legacy? We sat down with writer Mark Waid to exclusively unveil the first details about the new Wasp.
Superheroes pass on mantles all the time: Sam Wilson is Captain America. Batman is Jim Gordon; Peter Parker and Miles Morales are both Spider-Man. And yet, Janet Van Dyne has endured for over half a century as the sole incarnation of the Wasp (in the comics, at least)... until now.
If the fact Marvel is making an Ant-Man sequel wasn’t cool enough, the fact it’s called Ant-Man and the Wasp is simply amazing. Evangeline Lilly’s character Hope Van Dyne was a highlight of the first film and to see her team up with Paul Rudd should be an exciting and unique addition to the MCU.
Marvel has just dropped a surprising bit of news: the third phase of its cinematic universe is getting even bigger. Not only have three mysterious new movies been added to the schedule, but Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne are teaming up for Ant-Man and The Wasp!
If you’re seen Ant-Man—well, if you’ve seen Ant-Man and didn’t immediately book out of the theater when the credits start to roll like an insane person—then you saw the first look of the superhero outfit of a legendary Avenger and a welcome addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now get a good look.
Arrrrrgggghh. Evangeline Lilly took to Instagram to reveal the new hairstyle she's sporting for her role as Hope Van Dyne in Ant-Man. I think we can safely assume that regardless of Lilly's character's name, she will be the de facto Janet Van Dye/Wasp of the Marvel cinematic universe.
Federico D'Alessandro was the Avengers movie's animatics supervisor, and he just released a bevy of beautiful videos for storyboarded scenes that didn't make in into the finished film. Most of them are Iron Man scenes, but one of them reveals how close the superheroine The Wasp was to making it into the movie.
Being a human's great, but sometimes it would be cool to experience the world from a different perspective. I'd love to be this little wasp, hitching a ride on the back of a damselfly.
Imagine walking into a room and stumbling straight into a wasp nest that's nearly 22 feet big. That's what happened in the Canary Islands. Neighbors had been growing concerned over a vacant home so they notified the police. When the police entered the home, they discovered the home wasn't empty at all. Rather, it was…
Reaffirming that age-old maxim that alcohol is the cause of and solution to all of life's problems, fruit flies have devised an ingenious strategy to protect their unborn young from parasites. They simply lay their eggs in alcohol, and somehow that solves everything.
The neural pathways that make up the brain arguably represents the most fiendishly complex electrical system in the cosmos, but what if not every brain is actually electrical? One pint-sized wasp might have a mechanical brain that runs like clockwork.
The wasps had already killed a man and stung dozens of others. But, located out of reach high atop a tree surrounded by rugged terrain, the massive colony was impervious to attack by the villagers of Jiangjin Tsz Wan Yuen Tsuen, China. The situation became so dire that the Army had to intervene—with flamethrowers. […
Many insect species have natural enemies. Often, insects are locked in an evolutionary race for dominance with another insect species — and it turns out that these wars are much more epic than we ever realized, according to a new analysis of insect DNA.
Admittedly, there's not much competition, but I'm declaring fig wasps to be the most gallant of all wasps. Males are the only known insects to put pregnant females ahead of themselves...even if they haven't had a chance to mate yet.
Scientists at the University of Michigan have found something really surprising and remarkable: wasps can recognize each other by looking at their faces. Until know, we thought that only animals like humans or chimps can do this. Not anymore.
If seed beetles aren't careful, wasps will invade their eggs and have their own young kill the beetle larvae for nutrients. But these beetles aren't taking the threat lying down - they've developed an ingenious strategy to fight back.
