At Comic-Con 2014 it was officially announced that Evangeline Lilly would join the cast of Marvel's Ant-Man as Hope Pym, daughter of Hank Pym, who is being played by Michael Douglas. And that was nice. But since then there's been speculation-a-plenty that Lilly won't only be playing Hope Pym. With Marvel reportedly looking to diversify their stable of white male superheroes, a lot of people have been suggesting that Lilly might eventually become The Wasp.

Now, as you comic experts out there already know, Hope Pym was not The Wasp in the original comics. It was Janet van Dyne. However, The Wasp was one of the founding members of The Avengers and the partner of Hank Pym, so bringing this character into the mix just makes all kinds of sense. And it just so happens that Evangeline Lilly looks quite a bit like The Wasp comic nerds know and love.

Just take a look at her new Ant-Man hairdo:

See what I mean? Evangeline would make a perfect Wasp, and fanboys already love here. It's a match made in heaven.
