It’s almost four years since Marvel Studios teased a sequel to “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” and it looks like Scott Lang will make his superhero comeback faster than expected. The upcoming film, originally scheduled for a July 28, 2023 release date, changes release date with “Captain Marvel” sequel, “The Marvels,” due to production delays. Keep reading to find out more about the third “Ant-Man” movie here.
What’s called “Ant-Man 3”?
The third “Ant-Man” movie will be called “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”, a nod to the role that quantum physics plays in the movies and the chaos that the superhero duo often face as they immerse themselves in the quantum realm.
Appeared in “Ant-Man 3”.
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” directed by Peyton Reed, will play Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym, Kathryn Newton as Cassie Lang and Jonathan Majors as the Conqueror Kang. Marvel has not yet confirmed whether former “Ant-Man” franchise members like Laurence Fishburne, Randall Park and Michael Peña will return.
“Ant-Man 3” plot
Marvel has not yet revealed the plot in the third “Ant-Man” movie, but there are a few clues out there that we can put together. The first post-credit scene in “Ant-Man and the Wasp” reveals that Thanos’ finger-snap from “Avengers: Infinity War” left Scott trapped in Quantum Realm with no way to return. As half of the universe disappears in the wake of the snap – including Hope van Dyne (aka the wasp), Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne – Scott is unable to escape. What feels like five hours in the realm turns out to be five years, but Scott is finally able to return and help the Avengers pick up the Infinity Stones by using what’s left of the Pym particles to travel to the past. As for Scott’s role in the upcoming “Ant-Man” movie, we’ll have to wait and see.
Release date for “Ant-Man 3”.
Due to delays in the production of “The Marvels,” the upcoming “Captain Marvel sequel,” the third “Ant-Man” movie will now be released on February 17, 2023, according to Variety. As a result, “The Marvels” release date has been pushed back to the original “Ant-Man 3” release date of July 28, 2023.
