Potential spoilers ahead for Ant-Man and the Wasp!!
If there's one thing that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is known for, its secrecy. Marvel Studios does everything it can to keep its films' contents under wraps, allowing for moments of surprise and joy in the theater. Unfortunately, some of the starring cast members can make this a difficult task, as interviews and social media activity can unwittingly ruin film's contents. While Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland are the MCU's worst offenders, Ant-Man and The Wasp actress Evangeline Lilly may have revealed a potential villain of the upcoming sequel. While encouraging her followers to vote in the primaries happening across the country, Lilly seems to indicate that Goliath will be the big villain of the second Ant-Man movie.
While there could be a David vs. Goliath reference happening here, it certainly does seem like Evangeline Lilly is talking about the two villains she'll be facing in the MCU. Ant-Man and The Wasp will presumably feature Goliath as a villain, before Hope eventually crosses over and helps battle Thanos in Avengers 4.
Evangeline Lilly's Instagram post is sure to turn a few heads, especially as we get closer to Ant-Man and The Wasp's highly anticipated release. From the trailers and first footage, it seems like the duo of pint-sized heroes would be mostly battling Hannah John-Kamen's Ghost throughout the course of the movie. But the conflict can't be that simple, so fans were expecting another villainous character to pop up, be it Michelle Pfeiffer's Janet Van Dyne or Laurence Fisburne's Bill Foster. Now the latter seems more likely.
Bill Foster pops up briefly in the trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp, and seems to be a potential ally for Scott and Hope on their journey. He and Scott compare "sizes," meaning how large they've managed to grow through the use of the franchise's signature tech. Not it appears that the upcoming sequel may pull a fast one, and bring Goliath to the silver screen for the first time. Project G.O.L.I.A.T.H. was already mentioned by name, so fans were hoping the character would appear sometime during the film's runtime. Now we just have to wait and see.
All will be revealed when Ant-Man and The Wasp arrives in theaters on July 6, 2018. In the meantime, check out our 2018 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
