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.




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…




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.




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.




… and it features Tauriel/Evangeline A LOT! Who else is excited for December now!? Screencaptures from the trailer will be up in the galleries as soon as I can find a HD version. What do you think of the trailer?

EDIT: Updated with a HD version (make sure you change the quality) – screencaptures are on the way!




I boarded a jet plane this past Friday and traveled 16 hours through the night to Washington, D.C. I was back on a plane again on Monday morning flying the reverse 16 hours back home. I was in Washington with over 40,000 other protesters for the Forward on Climate Rally, to call President Obama to say “no” to the KXL pipeline.

The journey was long and on the way there I read Tim Flannery’s Now or Never, an inspiring (short) read on the state of the planet in the face of climate change. On the way back I was too exhausted to read or do anything productive, so I watched b-movies and contemplated my experience at the largest climate rally in U.S. history. I thought about the KXL pipeline and what it represents at this moment in American/Canadian history. I thought about all of the concerns over the pipeline on both sides. I thought about solutions to climate disruption — solutions that won’t slow our economy or stop commerce, green energy solutions like the advanced carbon-neutral biofuels that should be fueling my jet travel. I thought about how many people are crying out that we need the tar sands pipeline right now for economic stimulation and for job creation. I thought about the hard working citizens who feed their children through oil related jobs. And… I couldn’t help but wonder….

If oil workers could choose, would they choose to work in toxic environments with damaging chemicals, or would they choose to work surrounded by clean air?

If Americans could choose, would they choose to work on the infrastructure for cancer-causing oil power or would they choose to work on the infrastructure for health reviving wind power?
If Canadians could choose, would they choose to dig up their forests, leaving behind barren and filthy wastelands, or would they choose to harvest the sun’s rays and leave behind a legacy for their children?

If people had a choice, what would that choice be?

My reflections on climate choice were abruptly interrupted by the ever more sobering understanding that, right now, so many citizens of our free, democratic nations have no choice. They go to work in the dirty energy sector for lack of a better alternative.

There are jobs to be created on both sides of the climate argument. Whether we are investing in oil or sun, coal or wind, gas or algae, the economy will be stimulated by the investment. The economy, unlike each of us, is not swayed by ideology. So, by the time I touched down at home, I had but one, echoing thought in my mind, one aching plea for the leaders of our “free world”: Please… ask not the people if they want to work, but ask the people what they want to work toward. Even slaves have jobs. A free man should have choice.

Exiting news netters! Evangeline appeared at Good Morning New Zealand back in Novemeber (November 26), and a clip has finally surfaced online. It features Evi and Johnny Fraser- Allen, the creator of “The Goluming trilogy”. It’s a really interesting interview, as we get to hear a lot about Evangeline’s future career releated plans! It seems that 2013 will finally be a really big year for her, with the release of The Squickerwonkers, her official site (!!) and, of course, The Hobbit…

Screencaptures will be up in our galleries soon, and I will get the video added to our video archives! For now, watch the clip below…




Some disappointing news (which will be all forgotten a little later tonight hopefully, with the pretty premiere photo additions we have for you!) fellow Evangeline fans – it seems there’s no Tauriel in the first part of the “The Hobbit” trilogy like we previously suspected. Read the parts of the article below, and head over to the original source here for the full article + photos and clips from the premiere.

Remember me? Former Lost star Evangeline Lilly debuts her dramatic makeover at The Hobbit world premiere. She’s not actually going to be featured in the highly anticipated The Hobbit trilogy until the second installment, but that didn’t mean Evangeline Lilly was going to let the grande premiere pass her by. The former Lost star stole the spotlight as she attended the star-studded premiere in Wellington, New Zealand on Wednesday in a pink sparkly frock. Debuting a shorter haircut at the same time, the 33-year-old actress graced the red carpet on the arm of her co-star James Nesbitt.

The pretty brunette looked very different from the tomboy character we all came to know and love on Lost, with her short and playful haircut and glamorous frock. Evangeline has been out of the limelight since the popular show ended in 2010, but she’s set to appear in the next two installments of The Hobbit trilogy. Playing the character of Tauriel, an elf in Mirkwood, the actress won’t be seen in the films until The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is released next year. But despite not seeing herself on the big screen just yet, Evangeline decided to show her support to co-stars including Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett, Elijah Wood and Ian McKellen at the premiere.

Thousands of fans gathered from all over the country to welcome the actors and celebrate the release of the eagerly anticipated film, many of them dressed as character from Middle Earth. Donning costumes as hobbits, elves, goblins and even trees, many had camped out overnight in an attempt to get the best spot on the 500 metre long red carpet.

Actor Barry Humphries, who took on the role of the Goblin King, spoke out about The Hobbit madness that had taken over the city.




Our girl has apparantley jetted down to Wellington, most likely for the “The Hobbit” premiere. Hopefully this means that we’ll have some new event photos soon! You can view a couple of photos of Evangeline in NZ at the Evi forums here, and I will be on the lookout for more.
