Marvel Studios confirmed earlier this month that the third movie chronicling the adventures of size-shifting heroes Scott Laing and Hope Van Dyne will be titled Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. And now the Wasp herself, actress Evangeline Lilly, has shared some insight into how she's preparing for the film in a new Instagram video.

Lilly previously documented her body transformation for 2018's sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp, which saw her character take on a much more action-heavy role (and finally a superhero suit of her very own). This time around, however, Lilly explains she is focusing on creating a "strong base" for her training by working with chiropractor Eric Goodman after struggling for years with chronic back pain as a result of injury and weakness.

"I have spent a good part of the past two years in bed struggling through a very serious physical breakdown," Lilly wrote in the caption for the video. "Now I need to rebuild my strength in order to be able to bring the Wasp back to life again. In order to build strength, I need a strong base. My base is so compromised from decades of injury, misalignment, compensation and over-working. So, that is where I am starting - with my foundation."

"While the movements seem simple, Eric Goodman’s Foundation Training exercises are rebuilding my whole structure from the ground up," she continued. "Lots of tiny details - spread your toes, outside edges of the feet parallel, three points of contact on the foot, breath into your ribs front and back and sides, lift the tip of the skull, etc - are what make his postural exercises so uniquely effective... After 26 years of lower back pain, injury and weakness, I am starting to feel strength coming into that area of my body again and it feels amazing!"
