Evangeline Lilly is Ready to Film for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania‘. Marvel fans are over the moon after several big name Marvel projects were announced during The Walt Disney Company Investor Day 2020 event. One such project included the official name for the third Ant-Man film, titled: Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Ant-Man star, Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne) was just as excited as fans and didn’t waste a moment to share the news!
Lilly shared her excitement on social media with a photo of herself and co-star Paul Rudd along with the caption, “#Quantumania ???????? Now THAT’s the best idea I’ve heard in a while. #letsgetsmall 💪🏻”
Not much is known about the film at this time, but we do know that Jonathan Majors is joining the cast inn the iconic role of Marvel Villain Kang the Conqueror. We also know the role of Cassie Lang was re-cast and now Kathryn Newton will be replacing Abby Ryder Fortson as Cassie Lang, Scott Lang’s daughter in the MCU. Likely, this means Cassie will be playing a bigger role than intended in the MCU.
Peyton Reed is set to return as the director for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania to complete the trilogy. Both Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are set to reprise their rolls as Scott Lang (Ant-Man) and Hope Van Dyne (The Wasp). Also returning for the film is Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet Van Dyne), and Michael Peña (Luis). Writer and co-producer Jeff Loveness has been chosen by Marvel to pen a script for the third installment in the Ant-Man franchise.
We can’t wait to learn more about this sequel and how it will affect the future of the MCU. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Marvel!
