ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA Star Evangeline Lilly Believes The Threequel Is "The Best One Yet"

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania star Evangeline Lilly has discussed the challenges presented by shooting the movie in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, but promises fans they're in for a treat...

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania star Evangeline Lilly is currently doing the rounds to promote her new movie South of Heaven, and Digital Fix managed to ask a couple of quick questions about her return as Hope Van Dyne. While the actress was understandably unwilling to give away any story details, she did address the challenges of shooting in the midst of a pandemic.

"We finished filming at the end of November, and I think, hands down, it was the hardest one we’ve made," Lilly confessed. "It was the most difficult. It was the only one we’ve made during the Covid lockdowns. That just adds such an incredible complication to making a movie. It adds a lot of stress. It makes things very impersonal because you can’t see faces."

"Film sets are already impersonal enough, there is so much that goes on and so much that has to get done in a short amount of time, and the intensity level is really, really high. So it was a very trying experience doing the film with Covid measures," the actress continued.

"But I actually think...what we did, the stuff we shot, the material we managed to get, I think it might be the best one yet."

Ant-Man was a lot of fun, and even though Ant-Man and The Wasp was a little underwhelming (primarily because it didn't take us on that trip through the Quantum Realm we'd been hoping for), it's easy enough to believe director Peyton Reed has been firing on all cylinders with this threequel. After all, he's coming off the back of that incredible finale of The Mandalorian and with Kang the Conqueror about to show up, this movie promises to be a pivotal chapter in the MCU mythos.

While shooting has wrapped, it's probably going to be a while before we see anything official from this one. Not so much as a single set photo found its way online last year, so outside of the few confirmed cast members, this latest instalment of the Ant-Man franchise very much remains a mystery to us.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is set to be released on July 28, 2023.
