After already tapping Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Michel Pena to star in “Ant-Man,” Marvel is now in early talks with Evangeline Lilly for the female lead.

Edgar Wright is directing the superhero film with Kevin Feige producing. Wright also co-wrote the script with Joe Cornish. Production is set to start in April.

Plot details are still vague, but fans have suspected Wright is taking a different approach. It is unclear whom Lilly would be playing, though some insiders say she would play the daughter of Pym (Douglas) and Lang’s love interest.

Pym didn’t have a daughter in the comics, but Cornish and Wright could certainly have switched things up in their version by giving him one.

Marvel had no comment.

Lilly was most recently seen in New Line’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” She is repped by Silver Lining Entertainment.

Hey everyone! I updated the gallery with additional pictures of Evi at the The Hobbit:The Desolation of Smaug Hollywood Premiere plus I added pictures from the Berlin Premiere,Press Conference and screencaps from her appearance on Conan O’Brien.

Edit: Also I have no idea whats wrong with the sidebar so I’m going to temporarily change the layout back to one of the previous versions.

The 11th production diary video from the “The Hobbit” set has now been uploaded to youtube! This one finally features Evangeline (and quite a lot even!), and is hilarious throughout. It lasts 10 minutes – but it’s definitly worth watching! I’ve attached the video below, and HD screencaptures will be added to our galleries in a couple of hours.

And some bad news for those (including me!) who hoped Evangeline would attend Comic Con this year: none of the cast or crew will be attending this year. Peter Jackson explains why at the beginning of the clip…

Hello fellow Evangeline fans! As we reported earlier, Evi and some of her “Desolation of Smaug” co-stars is featured in the August issue of Empire Magazine. A fierce scan of Tauriel has now surfaced – and can be found in our galleries!

Yesterday, director Peter Jackson said goodbye to Gandalf forever as Ian McKellen wrapped shooting on The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again, finishing pick-up shots and extra scenes in New Zealand.

Today, Peter Jackson says goodbye to Legolas forever, as Orlando Bloom wrapped an intense 16 hour day on set fighting an Orc. Here is a special message from the director, along with a special video made for fans as beer was passed amongst the crew. Jackson also makes note that yesterday was Evangeline Lilly’s final day on set as Tauriel.

Fans themselves can say goodbye to Legolas and Tauriel on December 13 of this year, when The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug debuts in theaters, followed by the December 17, 2014, premiere of the final chapter in this trilogy The Hobbit: There and Back Again.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug comes to theaters December 13th, 2013 and stars Richard Armitage, Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ian McKellen, Aidan Turner, Dean O’Gorman, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish. The film is directed by Peter Jackson.

The Hobbit: There and Back Again comes to theaters December 17th, 2014 and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elijah Wood, Evangeline Lilly, Martin Freeman, Luke Evans, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Orlando Bloom. The film is directed by Peter Jackson.

Hello fellow Evangeline fans! As you’ve probably noticed already, we have a brand new layout here at I Heart Evangeline. The previous layout had been up for almost a year, so I figured it was about time we got a change – and the amazing Samantha came up with this beautiful piece for us! I really love it, and I hope you’ll all like as much as I do. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment with your thoughts – I would love to hear your opinions! I’ve checked the layout in all my browsers, and everything should be OK – but please let me know if you experience any issues.

Since we’re getting closer and closer to the release of “The Hobbit: the desolation of Smaug”, I decided to make our sidebar a little “The Hobbit“-centric this time. It’ll be updated with more stuff releated to the film eventually, as I expect we will be getting a lot more photos, videos and more as the premiere gets closer! I’ll be starting our information pages dedicated to the trilogy this weekend as well, and I also have a couple of Tauriel stills and scans to share with y’all. But for now, have fun checking out our new look – and stay tuned for more updates this weekend!


Hello fellow Evangeline fans! Along with two of her fellow “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” co-stars, Lee Pace (Thranduii) and Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Evangeline is gracing the august cover of “Empire Magazine” – looking absolutely fierce as the elf Tauriel! I have added two previews of the cover to our galleries, and hopefully we’ll have some outtakes from the photo session soon as well.

If anyone are able to scan the issue for us, we would really appriciate it! As I’m not from the US, I’ll most likely not be able to get a copy of it myself. Simply drop me an email to – you’ll of course receive credit! Now, enjoy the awesome new Tauriel photos…

Hey guys I saw this really cute video of Evi along with Orlando Bloom and Lee Pace watching a video of a couple of fan reactions while watching The Desolation of Smaug trailer.
