The trailer for Avengers: Infinity War may have only just debuted, but Marvel Cinematic Universe star Evangeline Lilly is already getting ready for Avengers 4. The actress recently took to Instagram to show off the preparations she's taking to make sure her skin looks its best.
Most stars in the MCU have to go to great lengths to prepare for an upcoming film, typically involving lots of working out. With Lilly having recently wrapped Ant-Man and The Wasp, she's assuredly already in top physical shape for the upcoming Avengers film.
Lilly's role of The Wasp was teased at the end of 2015's Ant-Man, making fans wonder when we'd get to see her character embrace her superhero side. The upcoming Infinity War is set to include a vast number of heroes from the MCU, but Wasp won't officially debut until the Ant-Man sequel, which hits theaters July 6, 2018.
Following the events of Avengers 4, Lilly has confirmed the shape of the MCU is assuredly changing. This might cause concern for fans, but the actress trusts the decisions by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.
"Frankly, if it wasn't Kevin at the helm, I think I would be very, very nervous to be losing these pillars and the people who paved a way for characters like the Wasp," Lilly confessed to Vanity Fair. "When he walked me through the general story arc of Infinity War, it dawned on me: oh, I understand now, we're moving into this new Phase."
Comments about the shape of the MCU might sound ominous, but Lilly pointed out these changes offer new opportunities for its films.
"The color of that new Phase can be clearly seen emerging through Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok," Lilly pointed out. "It's just a more colorful, more playful, heightened reality that we're going to enter."
Ant-Man demonstrated heroes with a variety of skills, not just of physical strengths, but of immense scientific knowledge, something Ant-Man and The Wasp is sure to explore further.
"Those characters are experts in the quantum realm. In Ant-Man and The Wasp, they are trying everything in their power to safely enter the quantum realm and return back from it because they have evidence from the first film that Scott Lang was able to do that," Lilly pointed out. "If he can do it, why can't we? If we do succeed in Ant-Man and the Wasp, then that does open a whole entire new multi-verse to enter into and play around in. I'm not the story creator, so I can't tell you what they're going to do with that. But I definitely see the potential there."
The next installment in the MCU, Avengers: Infinity War, hits theaters on May 4, 2018.
