Ant-Man and the Wasp

Following the occasions of Ant-Man and the Wasp and Avengers: Endgame, Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Hope van Dyne/Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), and her folks Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), proceed with their investigation of the Quantum Realm, which gets them conflict with Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), a variation of He Who Remains from Loki.

Premise

A fresh expedition exploring the Quantum Realm is undertaken by Scott Lang, Hope van Dyne, Hank Pym, and Janet van Dyne.

Development

Before Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) hit theatres, director Peyton Reed claimed that there were aspects of that movie that would give a prospective third instalment of the franchise “a lot to play with.” He emphasised the Quantum Realm, which was introduced in Ant-Man (2015) and expanded upon in Ant-Man and the Wasp; Reed claimed that for the earlier films, they had just “just dipped our toes into it.” Reed continued, “Marvel Studios and I have talked about potential plot lines for a third movie, and we’re optimistic about it.” A sequel to Ant-Man and the Wasp has been the subject of informal negotiations, according to Michael Douglas, who plays Hank Pym, Meanwhile, Evangeline Lilly has not been notified of any plans for Hope van Dyne/Wasp since she first appeared in Avengers: Endgame (2019). Lilly stated that “We are in the middle of the journey of hope. I don’t think her journey is over by any means.” Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, responded that “the chess pieces were arranged very purposefully” at the conclusion of that film, with some being taken “off the board” and others, like Ant-Man, being “still on you never know,” in response to a question about what would happen to Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang / Ant-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) after Endgame. Michelle Pfeiffer indicated interest in playing Janet van Dyne in a follow-up in October of that year.Rudd responded that both of those possibilities had been considered when asked if he would play the character again, either in a third Ant-Man movie or as a part of the MCU franchise of another hero.

Beginning in November 2019, Reed formally committed to directing a third Ant-Man movie. Rudd was slated to play Lang, and Lilly and Douglas would also be coming back. The first day of shooting was planned for January 2021, with a potential release date of 2022. Reed was rehired despite Marvel wanting new directors to give their heroes fresh perspectives in each movie because executives thought he had “a strong grasp on the Ant-Man universe and want to see him back to finish his trilogy.”The COVID-19 epidemic forced Hollywood to shut down, and Jeff Loveness was hired to write the script for the movie. By April 2020, he had started writing the script. The consequences of the epidemic on all film productions at that moment made it unclear when the movie would actually start shooting. Reed said that the movie was still being made during the epidemic in August 2020. He stated that Rudd and Lilly would continue to have equal screen time because Lilly is “a very, very,vital part” of the association between Ant-Man and the Wasp, regardless of bits of hearsay that her job would be diminished following disputable remarks about the pandemic. However, reed added that the story for the film had been “broke”, “nothing [was] official yet”, and said the third film would be a “greater, more rambling film than the initial two [with] a totally different visual layout.
