Director Peyton Reed Confirms ‘Ant-Man 3’ is Coming to the MCU. Peyton Reed is signed on to finish the Ant-Man trilogy with a new untitled Ant-Man 3 film for Marvel Studios starring Paul Rudd (Scott Lang) and Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne).
Reed has directed both Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp for Marvel Studios, and it appears the studio is looking to keep Reed in the franchise to work on an all new adventure for our pint sized (and sometimes gigantic) superheroes!
“We added the Quantum Realm and Janet and stuff like that knowing that if we were able to make a sequel that that could be fertile ground.” Reed added, “There are definitely things in this movie that, if we’re fortunate enough to make another one, there’s a lot to play with. We spend more time in the Quantum Realm in [Ant-Man and the Wasp], obviously, than the first movie, but it feels like we’re just dipping our toes into it.”
A third installment into the Ant Man franchise will fall in line with the magic “Marvel Formula” of filmmaking and will be a great way to round out the franchise since the latest film, Ant Man and The Wasp still begs for some important questions to be answered about the quantum realm and the new family dynamic now that Janet Van Dyne (Hank’s Wife and Hope’s Mother) has returned. Not to mention, we have yet to see the fate of Scott and Hope and how they would deal with the events of Avengers: Endgame and missing 5 years of Cassie’s (Scott’s Daughter) life!
