A banner hanging in advance of this weekend's D23 Expo gives fans a first look at Evangeline Lilly's Wasp costume in the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp. Released in 2015, Disney-Marvel's Ant-Man awarded audiences with many surprises, including a comedic take on the character by Paul Rudd and a refreshing take on the superhero genre with the film's heist-type of story structure.
Also included was an exciting tease of what was to come in the Ant-Man sequel - when Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) revealed to his daughter, Hope van Dyne (Lilly), a prototype Wasp outfit he and his wife, Janet, were working on before she went subatomic in the quantum realm.
Hank's big reveal to his daughter in the first end credits scene in Ant-Man was an invitation to his daughter to complete the suit, though, and by the look of the costume on the D23 banner, it appears to have undergone some changes. Actor Stephen Stanton tweeted out an image of The Wasp's costume, which you can see below:

Perhaps the biggest difference fans will notice in the costume from the one revealed at the end of Ant-Man is in the color scheme. The prototype outfit had a blue and gold tone with hint of red, while the image in the banner has more of a forest green and gold tone (with red highlights), which is also different from the character's yellow-and-black color scheme in the comics.
Now, it could be the color scheme in the banner looks different if Disney and Marvel Studios is going for stylish, sepia-inspired vintage look at the character. After all, the look of the costume is far different from any of the Wasp concept art that Marvel revealed to journalists in April. In those images, the Wasp's costume had a red and silver color scheme that effectively mirrored Scott Lang's Ant-Man costume in the 2015 film. In a tweet about a costume fitting in May, Lilly included one of the pieces of the concept art as well, which again, had the red and silver color scheme. The design of the costume, however, looks very similar to the one pictured in the new D23 banner.
Of course, fans will find out for sure when Marvel holds its panels at D23 on Saturday. On top of that, Marvel will appear a week later in Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con, and with any luck the studio will reveal even more information about Ant-Man and the Wasp at that time.
