Actress Evangeline Lilly isn't lost anymore. On Wednesday, February 5 reported at Lilly is currently in talks to appear in "Ant-Man," the Marvel superhero film scheduled to begin shooting in May. The actress is up for the female lead, which is an undisclosed role.

It's possible Lilly could play the love interest of Scott Lang, who will be played by actor Paul Rudd. She could also be the daughter of Hank Pym, portrayed by actor Michael Douglas, although that would mean she will be a new character for the film. A third possibility is Lilly playing the role of Jane Van Dyne, the alter ego of the superhero Wasp, who in the comic books was also a romantic interest for Hank Pym.

Lilly most recently appeared in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" as the elf warrior Tauriel. She is most well known for playing the role of Kate Austen on the ABC drama "LOST" about a group that survives a plane crash on a mysterious island. She has also appeared in films like "Real Steel," "The Hurt Locker," and "The Long Weekend" as well as the television series "Smallville."

Production for the film will begin in over the summer with filming locations in Atlanta and Los Angeles. "Ant-Man" is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015 and will launch Phase Three of Marvel's Cinematic Universe. The story follows a scientist who obtains the ability to shrink to the size of an insect and begins to fight crime. The film will be directed by Edgar Wright with a script written by Wright and Joe Cornish.
