Earlier this year, it was announced that Ant-Man 3 (not the official title) was in development and would be a part of Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 release schedule. After multiple reshuffled from the Walt Disney Company as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Ant-Man 3 remained unannounced and undated. Well, it looks like a date is set.
Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp director, who is returning for the third film in the franchise, recently spoke with Yahoo Entertainment and he shared some details on his time working on the first two films and how it is affecting his preparations on the third film, when asked about the status here is what Reed had to say:
“We have cracked the story, nothing is official yet, but we’re quietly working. We’re working through the pandemic.”
However, deep in the article the site revealed that the film is looking at 2022 release. Now, it should be noted that this didn’t come from Reed or Marvel Studios, but it is possible that Reed revealed that in their discussion, and whether or not Reed was supposed to remain to be seen.
Production on Ant-Man 3 is expected to kick off production in June of 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia. The film was originally supposed to start production in early 2021 but fell prey to the COVID-19 outbreak, which stopped every working production. As some projects start up again, the normal flow process for studios should head back to normal in the coming months; with necessary precautions of course.
Details on the project are being kept under wraps, Jeff Loveness (Rick and Morty) wrote the script. The Ant-Man franchise stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang aka Ant-Man), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne aka Wasp), Michael Dough (Dr. Hank Pym), and Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet Van Dyne) who are all expected to return to the heist-adventure film series. There have been previous rumors that the film could set up a Young Avenger film or series, and could even feature the villain MODOK aka Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing.
