Avengers 4 is already on track to break some hearts, but, if Evangeline Lilly, AKA The Wasp, is to be believed, it may end up with us scratching our heads too. She’s got a fair bit of history with that sort of thing, too, having been a major part of the hit series/labyrinthian maze that was Lost. So, just how do the two compare?
“When I heard about Infinity War [and Avengers 4] and the direction that they’re heading, I did have this moment of realizing, oh, wow, there’s a bit of a déjà vu for me with the Lost franchise,” reveals Lilly in an interview with NDTV (H/T ComicBook.com).
And then she gets into spoiler territory. Not for Avengers 4, but rather Lost season 4. Without going into specifics, there’s a certain point where everything gets flipped on its head – and there may just be something similar happening in Avengers 4, and even Ant-Man and the Wasp.
“We are hitting that [Lost] season 4 space,” Lilly explains. “Where everything’s about to shift, and you’re about to lose the solid ground underneath you. And [Ant-Man and the Wasp], of course, will play a part in that."
Welp. That sure sounds ominous. Lost’s twist was so groundbreaking, in a show that already prided itself on its confusing plot, that if Avengers 4 is going to try and match that – especially with some sort of concept where they play with time - hint, hint - then we’re all going to be left drying our eyes and picking up the scattered pieces of the MCU come next May.
Before then, there’s the small matter of a couple of new Marvel movies on the horizon, as well as much, much more beyond that.
