    It's amazing. She was on LOST like years ago. And I figured her career kinda died when it ended. She was in that Real Steel with Hugh Jackman and then in the last 2 Hobbit films with a big role and then in this. She has 1 heck of an agent. Her career way bigger than any other actor who was on LOST, which I wouldn't have thought 10 years ago.

    Getting the role of Hope in the MCU is a terrific role for her. It could mean several movies down the road after AMATW, including maybe even Avengers 4.

    She looks great. Can't believe she's in the MCU. One of my favorite Canadian actresses. :hrt:

    I was surprised that she is 38.

    I can't think of many Canadian high profile film actresses. Only Rachel McAdams comes to mind and she isn't like really A-list either.

    Michael Emerson had a lead role in some what acclaimed Person of Interest. But yeah, I would happily see more actors from Lost. :)

    It is impressive that she lands these high profile gigs seeing as she isn't really chasing it. If you see her in interviews she really isn't all that interested in being a 'movie star'. like a lot of actors that chase these high profile franchise roles.

    As a huge Lost fan I'm happy that she is getting big roles. She is great as Hope Van Dyne.

    Well, they're both in MCU now; I do hope McAdams will return in Dr. Strange 2 and get a more prominent role. Perhaps she will become a sorceress herself?

    Damn, she's definitely ready for this. Don't know how it took me this long to see this but I'm almost jealous. Her arms are almost more toned than mine. haha

    hopefully she'll have lots of cool scenes and stunts.

    outside of Avengers foes, does Wasp even have personal rogues?

    I wonder why she's in what looks to be a school? I hope she gets wings too

    I'm so excited to see the wings! AGH! What a great sci fi concept to see realized on screen. It'll be awesome to see in contrast with Vulture and Falcon's style.

    I hope they give a minute or two to show how they are built/work and how she learns to fly with them.

    I don't know if I'm too keen on the idea of the wings being too tech-based. I'd rather they were like in the comics where they were implanted into her and she could sprout them from under her skin. She could change size without any special suit and in any clothing (or lack of clothing).

    It would look more like Angel Salvadore in X-Men First Class and give Wasp a more fairy/ Tinkerbell-like appearance.

    I think a variant on her hairstyle from Ant-Man would've been better. It was a little severe at times instead of looking completely cute, but it would've been more distinctive than this pony tail. People didn't want to just see her with that hairstyle in a film where she isn't the Wasp. They wanted to see her with that style when she actually does gain her powers. It's like they can never give us the two things at once.

    That's what I'd prefer too for her.

    Love the fact that EL is in such good shape and I Hated the pixie haircut so I'm glad that she's grown it out. Less enthused about the costume though - like others I dug the colour scheme on the prototype seen at the end of the first film; this one does seem kind of generic and in fact reminds me of the Rachel Nichols promo pics for G.I.Joe.

    It looks like she is at a school but I can't imagine why...is the reason she's there is because of Scott's daughter Cassie? That could be a plausible reason why she is at what appears to look like a school

    But I wonder what Hope will think about Scott's actions in Civil War? I mean considering Scott is pretty much a fugitive now

    If it is career day then perhaps Cassie brings Hope to Career Day because she can't bring her dad since he is still a fugitive right escaping from the Raft in Civil War
