The mid-credits scene in 2015’s “Ant-Man” teased a future appearance of The Wasp, portrayed by Evangeline Lilly, so it wasn’t a huge surprise to learn she would be the co-lead in the 2018 sequel. Titled “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” Lilly will be the first woman to headline a movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beating “Captain Marvel” to theaters by a year.

Now, in an interview with Blastr at New York Comic Con, Lilly revealed that there’s even more in store for the Wasp; following her role in the “Ant-Man” sequel, the diminutive hero will appear in the untitled “Avengers 4” (previously billed as “Avengers: Infinity War Part 2”).

“There’s an Avengers series coming out, it’s a two-parter,” Lilly said. “The Wasp won’t be in the first part — she’ll be in the second part because they really want to preserve that reveal for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp.’”

This line of thinking is similar to why Captain Marvel’s debut, originally considered for the end of “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” was changed. Instead of introducing a new hero to fans without any context or origin given beforehand, it was decided that the smarter move was to use a solo movie to flesh out a character and give fans a chance to learn who they are.

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” arrives in theaters July 6, 2018.
