Paul Rudd Offers Ant-Man and the Wasp Update


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. 

Rudd said,

“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.”

Ant Man Sequel’s 2018 Release Pushes Captain Marvel to 2019


Earlier this month, Marvel announced that Ant-Man would be getting a sequel by way of Ant-Man and the Wasp and it will be hitting theaters in 2018. However, this new addition to Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe means pushing back the Captain Marvel film to 2019.

This is not the first time that Phase 3 has been shifted and it is started to feel like we can’t believe anything in that schedule. The first shift occurred when Sony’s Spider-Man deal with Marvel was announced. That announcement means that Black Panther will move from a July 6, 2018 to a Feb. 16, 2018 release and now Captain Marvel will be released on March 8, 2019 rather than Nov. 2, 2018.

Marvel has also added three untitled films for 2020 on May 1, July 10 and Nov. 6.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released July 6, 2018. Ant-Man will next appear in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.
