Evangeline Lilly is currently starring in the Ant-Man movie as Hope Van Dyne, daughter to Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne.

As seen in the Ant-Man post-credit scene, Hank Pym gave Hope the Wasp suit.

Now while participating in a fan Q&A on Facebook, Evangeline Lilly reveals she was scanned for the Wasp costume, but not able to try it on as she is currently about eight months pregnant. 

Lilly also commented that she is writing a comic book next year, though it's not a super hero character.

It was also previously revealed that Wasp has been cut from Captain America: Civil War, but there are big plans for Wasp in a future Marvel movie.

Check out what Lilly had to say:

Wasp Costume:

Oh! And I was scanned for #TheWasp suit, but then I got pregnant. Let's hope I fit it again! #ineedtime! [winks]

No. I've been too pregnant

Writing a comic:

I am writing one next year. So, I have to keep it a surprise. It's not a superhero, but she is a very cool heroine.

Fighting Hulk:

I love your ideas and will share them with Marvel! I would love to see Wasp fight The Incredible Hulk. I think she would just roll her eyes at his temper and fly circles around him until he was exasperated. smile emoticon Haha!

Difference between Edgar Wright and Peyton Reed's Hope:

She became more relatable and a little less like an original, 1960's comic book character. I LOVED both versions, but the version we settled with fit better in the #marvelverse. I'd still love to do Edgar Wright's version, too.

On Marvel movies and who she would like to work with:

I haven't seen them all, but I really liked Winter Soldier for the powerful political commentary and who doesn't love RDJ as #IronMan?? That said, I would love to work with #MarkRuffalo. I think it would be fun to see the interchange between Paul and my tiny characters and him.

A cut scene:

You wouldn't know it to watch it, but the dinner scene between #CoreyStoll's character and mine had me in stitches when we shot it. They cut a lot out.
