Lilly Hopes For A Marvel "Wasp" Spin-Off.

Evangeline Lilly is hoping Marvel is in the mood for a Wast movie Spin-off.

"I'm going to make a pitch that I think it might be time for a Wasp standalone film,” the actor said at the premiere of "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” on Monday. "Do we agree? Do we agree?"

She added the next day she wants to explore Hope’s darker side: “At the very, very beginning, you have this sense that like there was a darkness in her that could have gone the wrong way.” She then touched upon a scene in the first film where she uses her father’s ear-piece to have ants swarm a house and darken the room:

"I really want to know more about that. Everything else since then has been really about her competence and her integrity. But there’s more to her than just competence and integrity. What are the things that are dangerous for her? What are her vices? What are the places where if you poke her, she might fall apart or she might turn to the dark side? That’s where I would want to go."

Lilly has played Hope Van Dyne since 2015's "Ant-Man", and when the character became the Wasp for 2018's "Ant-Man and the Wasp," she shared title status with Paul Rudd’s shrinking Avenger. Other than a brief appearance in "Avengers: Endgame", however, the character has remained largely unexplored in the MCU, and Lilly is hoping that can change.
