Alright, hands up – who’s excited for Marvel’s Ant-Man? Don’t worry, my hand’s not up, either. Regardless of how much I love Paul Rudd as an actor, this just isn’t my thing at all, so I can’t muster up too much enthusiasm for the trailer, which hit the internet yesterday. Of course, if you’re a Marvel fan and a Paul Rudd fan, you’re in luck and this is likely a Big Deal for you.
Here we go:
If you’re unfamiliar with the Ant-Man story, here’s a brief synopsis: With the ability to shrink in size but grow in strength, a con man (Paul Rudd) must help his mentor (Michael Douglas) protect the secret of his Ant-Man suit and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Sounds riveting, now?
Ant-Man will be in theatres on July 17 and also stars Evangeline Lilly, Judy Greer and Bobby Cannavale.
You probably remember Evangeline Lilly as the marginally talented and very attractive actress from Lost or The Hobbit, but oh my, she’s much more than that. She’s also demonstrated herself to be rather ignorant and sorta clueless, so let’s concentrate on that one today.
“Feminism” is a bit of a buzzword lately, one that celebrities totally love to exploit for their own gain or veer away from entirely because hey, equality for all! Evangeline took it to a whole new level, however, when she claimed that she’s not a feminist because… she doesn’t want to be a man?
“I don’t like the idea of playing a one-dimensional character who is just fearless, strong and killer and has instincts and just thrives in dangerous circumstances –- that’s really boring to me and I don’t think it represents what most women feel inside,” the 35-year-old told HuffPost Entertainment before release of “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” “I’m very proud of being a woman, and as a woman, I don’t even like the word feminism because when I hear that word, I associate it with women trying to pretend to be men, and I’m not interested in trying to pretend to be a man. I don’t want to embrace manhood, I want to embrace my womanhood.”
I… um… did she… I mean… WHAT? I’m so confused. WHAT is she on about? Is she serious that she thinks being a feminist means you want to be a man? Wow, I never knew someone (aside from Kim Kardashian) could be so stupid. This is mindblowing.
To recap, this is what her hair looked like the last time we spoke of her on Evil Beet—which was two-and-a-half years ago:
Granted, her outfit this time around is much, much better, but the new hair? I’m definitely not feeling it. It looks like a home-job (not that there’s anything wrong with home-jobs; I do my own hair, too—cut, color, and all), but like how some home-jobs go, it looks … well, botched. It looks like something I did to my hair a decade ago by accident, but instead of going out in public and trying to rock it, I quickly dyed it dark again before anyone (including myself) really saw just how orange I was.
But hey! It’s hair. It changes all the time. And Evangeline Lilly is still super hot. This is girlfriend at the ‘Hobbit’ premiere, and while she’s not actually in this particular installment, she will be featured in the series’ next two films.
So. Love it or leave it? Here’s another photo to help you on your way to decision:
Evangeline Lilly was snapped at last night’s premiere of Stones in Exile in New York City wearing what one could only describe as Blanche Devereaux‘s full-lengthy exercise romper.
I think satin’s pretty gross. I think that brown satin might be even worse. However, the chunky heels coupled with the tapered-ankle, brown satin jumper is just murder and the idea of gouging my eyes out with a hot spoon is sounding pretty damned appealing right about now.
Love it or leave it? More like rip the shit off, douse it with turpentine, find hallowed ground and bury the thing … but only after you set it on fire in sacrifice to the cruel, cruel god that made Evangeline Lilly think it would be okay to ever — ever! — go out in public in such a putrid ensemble.
