Evangeline Lilly in talks for Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

By Kyle Johnson,

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug actress Evangeline Lilly is currently in talks for the female lead opposite of Paul Rudd in the upcoming Marvel film Ant-Man.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the talks are only early and it isn't clear who the former Lost actress would play in the film. The site does note that it likely would be a decently large character as it appears it wouldn't be a one-time role.

If she does sign on for the Marvel superhero film she will join the already cast Rudd, who is playing the film lead of Scott Lang, while veteran actor Michael Douglas is in place to play the character of Hank Pym.

Lang steals the technology developed by Pym that allows him to shrink down in size.

American Hustle actor Michael Pena also has a role in the Edgar Wright-directed film, but it too is currently unknown.

Ant-Man is scheduled to hit theaters on July 17, 2015. The film was moved to that summer date after Batman vs. Superman was pushed back into summer 2016 and replaced with Pan.
