Earlier this week fans got their first look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, the titular star of Marvel’s 2015 Ant-Man, and today co-star Evangeline Lilly showed off some photographs from the set – including a first look at her new haircut.

Lilly, who was announced at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 as playing Hop Van Dyne, the daughter of Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym, is sporting a haircut that some online observers are finding all-too reminiscent of another Marvel character – one who has been extricably linked to Ant-Man for 60 years – the Wasp.

In comics, the Wasp is Janet Van Dyne – a superhero and founding Avenger just like Ant-Man, who was romantically linked – and even married to the Hank Pym Ant-Man for a number of years. There’s been no mention of the Wasp by Marvel in relation to the Ant-Man movie, something that has been conspicuous by fans. And these photographs do nothing to stop fanning that flame.
