Following an airport-set photo op between Marvel Cinematic Universe stars Evangeline Lilly (Wasp) and Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Marvel fans are hoping to see the pair of fan-favorites interact come Avengers 4.

“We need them to meet in the MCU,” wrote Instagram user @cosmcl. “I’m dead, this is everything I wanted,” wrote @buttinas in another comment. “I need Mantis/Wasp ASAP!”
Lilly previously told Movieplayer.It she hopes to see Ant-Man and Wasp team with the bug-like Guardians of the Galaxy member in the future when asked which Marvel superhero would make a good partner for the crime-fighting duo.
“I would say probably Spider-Man, because we’ve got wasps, ants, and spiders,” answered Ant-Man star Paul Rudd.
“See, I was gonna say Mantis for that same reason,” Lilly said, further nominating founding Avenger Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). “There’s a lot of insects, but I was sort of thinking it would be really fun to do scenes with Mantis [laughs]. She’s great.”
Both Mantis and Wasp have since fallen victim to the Infinity Stone-powered snap of Thanos (Josh Brolin) that erased half of all life in the universe in Avengers: Infinity War.
“She’s weird, she’s special, she’s in her own world and I get to do funny things, and I love to do that,” Klementieff told Paper Magazine.
