Evangeline Lilly Comments On ANT-MAN Heist Element

Revealing a third "mastermind" behind the movie's big heist not mentioned in the synopsis, as well as what she took from the set, check out the latest from Evangeline Lilly on her role in Ant-Man.

While still making rounds for The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, Evangeline Lilly talked more about her role as The Wasp Hope Van Dyne in Ant-Man. More precisely, when CNN asked the actress about her experience on the Marvel adaptation, she reiterated how she was surprised by the amount freedom the studio had given her. "I've been astounded to discover how good to their teams and crew that Marvel are," said Lilly. "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." When asked about her character, Evangeline Lilly explained that, "She is the daughter of the founders of The Avengers, Ant-Man and the Wasp. She is a very talented, intelligent, capable woman and a force to be reckoned with." She continued, "[Ant-Man] is very much a heist film. It has all the fun, tension and drama of a good heist film. The heist is being masterminded by myself, my father and Scott Lang." It's somewhat interesting that Lilly declares Hope Van Dyne as a mastermind of the heist given only Hank Pym and Lang are mentioned in the synopsis. Anyhow, the actress also told People magazine that she's a bit of a pick-pocket on-sets. "On Ant-Man, I took a rubber stamp from the office of Hank Pym, who's played by Michael Douglas. If something is small enough to go in my pocket and it will be neat memorabilia, it's gone." Furthermore, It's also worth mentioning that, during yet another interview via the Huffington Post, Evangeline Lilly hinted at future Marvel commitments in 2016; even though she later implies not knowing the specifics of her multi-picture contract. What do you think?

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, Evangeline Lilly, David Dastmalchian, Michael Pena, Bobby Cannavale, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, Wood Harris John Slattery and Gregg Turkington with multi-hyphenate T.I., and the film opens July 17, 2015
