It's no secret that Avengers: Infinity War is full of some reasonably triumphant moments. From the return of Steve Rodgers to the victory over Ebony Maw, several notable moments made audiences cheer -- which is an excellent way to balance out the film's grim ending. But for Ant-Man and The Wasp star Evangeline Lily, the real cheer-worthy moment came during the Battle of Wakanda, when the Marvel Cinematic Universe heroines band together against Proxima Midnight. During an appearance at Fan Expo Canada, the Lost veteran said:
When I was watching Avengers: Infinity War, there's this moment...by the way, I was at the premiere so I was in a theater full of very enthusiastic watchers. There was this moment where one of the female Avengers...I believe it was Scarlet Witch, is trapped in a trench, and that horrible Thanos female villain lady I don't know what her name is, but she was gonna kill her and she said something to the effect of 'now you're all alone'. And what happened next...She's not alone bitch!! Sorry.
If you have seen Avengers: Infinity War, then you likely already know the scene in question. It occurs towards the end of the battle in Wakanda, just before Thanos arrives. Proxima Midnight corners Scarlet Witch on the battlefield, but Black Widow and Okoye come to save the day. It's an undeniably badass scene, and for Evangeline Lily, the strength of the female heroes banding together compelled her to cheer at the premiere.
As it turns out, Evangeline Lily's moment of triumph did not go unnoticed by other folks in the theater. In fact, elsewhere in her appearance at Fan Expo Canada, the actress said:
And I literally got out of my seat and I was like 'Yeah, yeah!' And it was this amazing moment with women just supporting women and that feeling in my gut. I didn't mean to, but I was on my feet before I knew what was happening and Paul Rudd's looking at me like 'what are you doing?' But that's what I want to see. Women supporting women.

If you want to see Evangeline Lily kick some ass and take some names, Ant-Man and The Wasp is still out in theaters. We will see even more badass women in the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year when Captain Marvel premieres on March 8, 2019 and Avengers 4 premieres on May 3, 2019!
