Paul Rudd is definitely my new sweetheart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I have been waiting patiently for the next feature film for his character, Ant-Man. Rudd recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight updating fans on the status of the next film, Ant-Man and the Wasp.
“We’ve been coming up with the story, just turned in a treatment, but it’s so preliminary. We’ll see. We have an idea of what it might look like but it could change a lot from where we’re at now.”
At least we can take care in the fact that Rudd as Ant-Man has started to be featured in other Marvel films, most recently, Captain America: Civil War. So we have that to tide us over until Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Rudd has reportedly been working on the script for the sequel MCU project with Transformers writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari and Academy Award winner Adam McKay.
Right now, what we do know though, is that Ant-Man and the Wasp will see the return of Rudd as Scott Lang alongside Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, with Michael Douglas also expected to reprise the role of Hank Pym in the film. Ant-Man and the Wasp is set for release on July 6, 2018.
While updating fans on the sequel, he also took time to praise the addition of Brie Larson to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain Marvel.
“I love that. Love Brie Larson. I think she’s incredible. I think we’ve very lucky to have Brie Larson in the fold.”
