Cast member Evangeline Lilly attends the premiere of "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" at TCL Chinese Theatre in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles on December 2, 2013. Storyline: After successfully crossing over (and under) the Misty Mountains, Thorin and Company must seek aid from a powerful stranger before taking on the dangers of Mirkwood Forest--without their Wizard. If they reach the human settlement of Lake-town it will be time for the hobbit Bilbo Baggins to fulfill his contract with the dwarves. The party must complete the journey to Lonely Mountain and burglar Baggins must seek out the Secret Door that will give them access to the hoard of the dragon Smaug. And, where has Gandalf got off to? And what is his secret business to the south? UPI/Jim Ruymen | License Photo
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Evangeline Lilly has revealed her new look for Ant-Man.
The 35-year-old actress posted two pictures of her haircut Wednesday on Instagram. Lilly shows off her short, blunt bob with bangs in one of the photos, and poses with co-star Paul Rudd in the other.
"How's my new do?" she asks in the caption.
"First day on set with #PaulRudd," she explains in the other shot. "#ilovemylife #antman #hopevandyne #scottlang #marvelcomics."
Lilly will star as Hope Van Dyne in the adaptation. Hope is daughter to Dr. Henry "Hank" Pym (Michael Douglas), the etymologist and physicist who develops the size-shifting substance and becomes the original Ant-Man. The character is Hank's daughter with Janet van Dyne, aka the Wasp, in the Marvel comics, and duplicates her mother's powers to become the Red Queen.
Ant-Man is directed by Peyton Reed, and co-stars Rudd as Scott Lang, a reformed thief and electronics expert who becomes Ant-Man at Hank's bequest. Corey Stoll, Michael Pena, David Dastmalchian, T.I., Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer and John Slattery also have roles. The movie is scheduled for release July 17, 2015.
