The Ant-Man project has been followed by a lot of conflicts and confusions; and, the new cast members aren't exempt. Lilly revealed at Comic-Con that she hasn't even seen the script yet. She commented, "I can't tell you anything else about her because I don't know. I've been evading the press over the last two days at Comic-Con about who I'll be playing." She was also incorrectly introduced as Hope Van Dyne instead of Hope Pym, which caused some confusion for fans. The mistake was credited to the recent script changes.
Ant-Man tells the story of a biochemist who develops a formula to manipulate size. He performs an experiment on himself which doesn't quite go as planned. However, he then develops a method to communicate with anc control insects.
As of now, Ant-Man is set to hit theaters in 2015.
