''My 42nd birthday, I'm at a table doing a talking-head scene with Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas, and Bill Murray. And I was like, 'somebody sent the invitation to the wrong house. I'm not supposed to be here. How did I get here? It's so cool!''

Evangeline Lilly plays the role of Wasp in the highly anticipated MCU flick, which is set to arrive in theaters on Friday, February 17, 2023.

Evangeline Lilly told Jimmy Fallon that working with Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas, and Bill Murray was ''the coolest thing ever.'' She also spoke about celebrating her 42nd birthday on the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and being in The Volume, a new technology depicted in the film. Lilly mentioned:

''Actually, we were on the volume. And that's the stage with, like, thousands of LED lights that create the Quantum Realm around us, which is really, really special.''

She further stated during the interview:

''So what you see in the movie, we actually were in that. It looked like that. So instead of green screen, instead of trying to imagine all of it, it was right there. I watched Krylar's ship come down from the heavens and Bill Murray walk out of it.''

Evangeline Lilly looks quite impressive in the trailer for the massively hyped MCU film. She brilliantly captures her character's charisma and charm with total ease, and fans can expect her to deliver an enthralling performance in the film.

She'd earlier reprised the role in the previous two Ant-Man movies. Apart from the MCU, Evangeline Lilly is best known for her performances in various other popular and critically acclaimed movies and TV shows like Lost, Real Steel, and South of Heaven, to name a few.
