Following the relative success of Ant-Man this past summer, Marvel has decided to add yet another film to their Phase 3 lineup. Placed between Avengers Infinity War Parts 1 and 2, the film breaks Marvels 2-films-a-year rule. While we did hear that the Wasp would be spreading her wings in some film during Phase 3, the creation of a new film is shocking to say the least.
There is so much we don’t know yet. We obviously have no concept of the story or villain. We don’t know what the Marvel landscape will look like by that point (after Civil War, Ragnarok, and even Black Panther). We don’t even know if Hank Pym will return, as Michael Douglas had only signed on for one film.
Nonetheless, I am incredibly excited to see what the future of Ant-Man has to bring. Maybe we’ll see Egghead? Eric O’Grady? Giant Man? Hank Pym as Yellowjacket? For now, only time will tell.
