Though her co-star Paul Rudd was apparently informed beforehand of the universe-wide genocide that would conclude Avengers: Infinity War, Lilly and her onscreen family weren't entirely sure what was going on even on the day of shooting, and that reportedly shows in the death scenes they shot. And I have to tell you, I'm so grateful that they did cut that out. "None of knew what we were doing! I think we made it look a little bit more like an ascension to heaven [rather] than any sort of negative and scary happening".
"We shot ourselves being dissolved". We knew that Thanos had snapped his fingers and people disappeared, but we didn't know... I hadn't seen Tom Holland crying out and begging Iron Man to "Please, please, I don't want to go, I don't want to go" and we hadn't seen the emotion or the drama or the sort of angst and maybe pain surrounding the ashing or the Snappening when we were shooting it. Because at that point I have not seen Avengers: Infinity War.

It was only when Lilly saw the dusting suffered by her fellow superheroes that she began to grasp how the scene should've been handled. As he struggles to rebalance his life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he's confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission.
