Male actors have a long history of complaining about wearing the superhero costumes that have brought them so much fame and fortune over the years, particularly since the dawn of the “Marvel decade.” Most recently, Chadwick Boseman, who broke records and earned his place in Hollywood history with his headlining turn in Black Panther, said that he had to get into a “Zen space” to wear the suit.
It’s hard for the vast majority of us fans to have sympathy for these actors and their wardrobe complaints considering how much money they make for the work that they do, but even Evangeline Lilly , who co-headlines the upcoming Ant-Man and The Wasp as Hope Van Dyne, aka The Wasp, has had enough of the whining:
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, ‘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?
You tell ’em, Evangeline!
