Sit back and let Evangeline Lilly explain why her male Marvel co-stars are all a bunch of babies.

It's official - the golden age of Marvel female superheroes has truly arrived. We've got Black Widow, Okoye, Shuri, Scarlet Witch, Gamora, Nebula, Mantis, Valkyrie, Captain Marvel (soon), The Wasp (we could go on...) and they are all kicking-ass one MCU movie at a time.

But Evangeline Lilly, who will be reprising her role of The Wasp in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp in a few months, has been quietly kicking ass in real life while doing promo for her new movie and she just reminded us why the female superheroes are the TRUE icons of the MCU.


In a recent interview with BackstageOL's Dave Morales, Lilly was asked how she feels while wearing her kick-ass superhero suit. "I love my suit," she said. "I think my suit is killer, I think my suit is so cool... it's powerful, it's modern, it's strong, it's sexy and it made me feel like a superhero." 

The only bad word she has to say about it is the fact that it took three people to help her get in it, and then three people get out of it when she need to use the bathroom. That's it. No other dramas. No complaining about uncomfortable it was or anything... UNLIKE THOSE PESKY MARVEL MEN.

Yep, after elaborating on the suits in the MCU, your girl Hope van Dyne has issued a takedown of all the Marvel actors who have complained about their suits and people are absolutely screaming over every word that came out of her mouth.

Watch Lilly literally end all male MCU actors in the space of 78 seconds below, starting at 1m 58s.

Here's what she said in full: "I have been hearing Marvel male superheroes complain about their suits for years. And I got into my suit and I was wearing it, working in it, doing my thing and I was like, "it's just not that bad!" Do I have the most comfortable suit in the MCU or have men not had the life experience of being uncomfortable for the sake of looking good?" [It is at this point where she raises her stiletto clad foot into the air and I let out a squeal of adoration.]

"They're just like "What is this? This sucks! Why are we - why? Why do I have to go through this?" Where as a woman's like, "I don't know, it's just normal. You know, I wear heels to work, I'm uncomfortable all day. You get used to it. You tune it out!"

DID SHE LIE? No, she didn't and people are absolutely living for her candidness!

Of course, there are few exceptions to Lilly's point. Both Scarlet Johannson (as MCU's Black Widow) and Michelle Pfeiffer (as Catwoman in DC's Batman Returns) have had a few things to say about their skin tight black latex bodysuits - and rightly so. But The Wasp's suit isn't unlike that of Iron Man's or Ant-Man's... in fact, it's pretty much the same.

Back in 2013, Gwyneth Paltrow also called out the guys for complaining about their suits too. "It was nothing at all," Paltrow said when she got to wear Iron Man's full Iron suit in Iron Man 3. "Women are so much stronger than men... What are they complaining about? It's not as comfortable as yoga pants but it's a costume. Men are crybabies."


Ant-Man and the Wasp will arrive in cinemas on July 6.
