Evangeline Lilly is set to go from the world of The Hobbit to the world of Marvel's Ant-Man...

We know that Paul Rudd is taking the title role in Edgar Wright's upcoming Ant-Man movie, and we also know that Michael Douglas has signed up for the film as well. Now we're hearing that Lost and The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug star Evangeline Lilly is being linked with the project.

Variety reports that she's up for one of the leading roles in Ant-Man, speculating that she'll either be a love interest to Rudd's Scott Lang, or the daughter of Douglas' Hank Pym. Marvel, predictably, has remained tight-lipped for the time being.

Production on Ant-Man is set to begin in April, ahead of the film's release in July 2015. Expecting a few more casting rumours in the next few weeks, before the inevitable formal Marvel announcement...
