It’s no secret that the Coronavirus pandemic has caused severe delays to phase four of the MCU. It’s now well over a year since fans received their last fix when Avengers: Endgame hit theatres to critical acclaim, but the long wait is almost over with Black Widow set to release in two months time.
Reports over recent weeks suggest that production is beginning to ramp up again on almost every phase four movie and Disney+ series. One of those projects is the third instalment of Ant-Man. Ant-Man 3 will see Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly reprise their roles as the tiny but powerful duo of Ant-Man and Wasp, and will also see Payton Reed return as director.
In a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show, Reed was asked about the status of the upcoming Ant-Man movie. Reed replied:
Since both Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp took place almost exclusively in San Francisco, it’s won’t be hard to make the third film bigger in scope. Hopefully, we’ll get the chance to see Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne take on a bigger threat than they have faced in the previous two films.
One thing is for certain, the Ant-Man films have grown from a single hero to a double act. In another recent interview on Yahoo, Peyton Reed had the following to say about the pair:
The as yet untitled Ant-Man 3 film doesn’t have a release date yet.
