The debut of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is upon us, kicking off Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s storytelling in full swing. The film will take the adventures of Scott Lang / Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne / The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) into new territory, and while there’s no telling exactly what the future holds for either character it sounds like it would ideally involve a new kind of solo film. In an interview with Variety at the red carpet premiere of Quantumania, Lilly talked about the possibility of Wasp getting her own solo project.
“I’m going to make a pitch that – I think – it might be time for a Hope spin-off,” Lilly explained. “For a standalone film by Wasp. Do we agree? Do we agree? Is anyone going to buy that?”

Come one A force movie?
Another hypothetical MCU sequel Lilly has championed is a potential one A force movie, which would hypothetically bring together all of the franchise’s heroines into one story.
“Yes! I’d love to be there,” Lilly said in an interview with CinePop late last year. “I’d like to make it happen. That day we did the scene [Avengers:] Endgame where it was just us women was the most special day I’ve ever had. It was perhaps connected to the most special day I’ve ever had filming a Marvel movie.”
