In wake of the ongoing Canadian Trucker, anti-COVID-19 vaccine mandate, Marvel’s own Evangeline Lilly has thrown her social media hat into the fiery ring of Hollywood stars either supporting or denouncing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Now, Marvel fans are calling for Lilly’s Hope Pym/Hope Van Dyke to be replaced, canceling the Marvel alum following her political protest:

Marvel actress Evangeline Lilly, who plays Wasp in the Ant-Man movie, defended the Canadian truckers from Trudeau and “corporate media” outlets for “smearing them as racist and misogynistic.”

In the video above, the Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly shares a heartfelt cry for Justin Trudeau to sit face-to-face with the Canadian truck drivers protesting the current COVID-19 vaccine mandate and hear their voices.

But, Lilly’s post is stirring the pot in all the wrong directions according to some fans:

Another Marvel fan wrote:

Can’t wait for marvel to announce Evangeline Lilly new replacement as the wasp.

One Twitter user shared:

I repeat: Recast. Immediate. They shoulda recast Letitia Wright. They should recast Evangeline Lilly. Ain’t nothing THAT special about em. There are much more talented (and sane) actors out there who can take up their spot & make the set a safe space.

Another Twitter user wrote:

Anyway, Evangeline Lilly is trash.

Evangeline Lilly also made headlines last month after reportedly attending an anti-COVID-19 vaccination mandate in Washington, DC. Every actor and actress is entitled to their own opinions. These are those of Lilly.

Marvel star Simu Liu and Ant-Man (2015) co-star David Dastmalchian even called out Lilly following her controversial Instagram post, claiming that it’s a shame to spread misinformation on such a large platform that Evangeline Lilly has on social media.
