Glamovie.com – Evangeline Lilly just said that she was not interested at all if Marvel Studios made a solo film for the character she played, namely Hope Van Dyne aka The Wasp. According to the Canadian actress, she was more pleased if the figure of The Wasp remained paired with Ant-Man and became the two main players, compared to focusing only on the characters he played.
However, the actress “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” also did not really close the possibility for the solo film The Wasp. He said that he would agree if the female superhero character in the series “The Avengers” was also given a solo film.
Now, it seems that Evangeline’s wishes will soon be fulfilled. The reason is, recently the director of the series “Ant-Man”, Peyton Reed revealed about the possibility of The Wasp joining the female Avengers aka female superheroes in the MCU franchise.
Reported by Digital Spy on Monday (8/20), Peyton revealed that he really hoped if Marvel gave permission so he could make a film that only contained female Avengers characters. Even this famous director also hopes that The Wasp becomes the leader of the women’s Avengers joint team.
“I want him (The Wasp) to go through various things. I want to see him as the leader of the female Avengers. I know Evangeline said that the leader was Captain Marvel, because he did have the word ‘Captain’ in his name,” said Peyton.
Furthermore, Peyton also explained the reasons why he called The Wasp suitable to be a leader. According to him, the character with the real name Hope Van Dyne was very adept at designing strategies and was so smart, especially considering that he inherited the sophistication of his father’s technology, Hank Pym.
“But I think Hope Van Dyne is a very important leader in tactics, in addition to being a brilliant scientist. So he is very fit to have to run a female Avengers, theoretically,” Peyton continued.
If it is realized, the female Avengers movie will become a long-term project. Especially considering that Marvel Studios is busy with a number of film projects that will be released in 2019 and 2020.
In 2019, the giant studio is known to be launching three films, namely “Captain Marvel,” Avengers 4 “, and” Spider-Man: Far from Home “. While in 2020, a number of projects awaiting are” Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 “,” Black Panther 2 “,” Doctor Strange 2 “, until” Black Widow “. (Glamovie).
