This year, Evangeline Lilly is the defacto queen of San Diego Comic-Con. Not only will the actress be on hand to promote the final Hobbit film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, she may be there for Marvel Studio’s Ant-Man, plus she’s finally fulfilling a lifelong dream. Lilly has always wanted to be a writer and she will debut her brand new book, The Squickerwonkers, at the Con with a panel and signing.
We had the pleasure of speaking to Lilly about all three of these things but in this, part one of our interview, we’ll focus on the film work and Comic-Con in general. We talked about her connections to the Convention, having been there for Lost, Hobbit and more. She gave us an update on the latest Hobbit and described the arc of Tauriel, her brand new character. The actress then skillfully evaded questions about Ant-Man, but also discussed Edgar Wright‘s departure. Finally, Lilly discussed what went wrong with Real Steel and the potential for a sequel.
