Audiences are still keenly awaiting the arrival of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which debuts in cinemas later this month. Plans, however, are already in development for a fourth Ant-Man film, demonstrating that the Marvel machine is always moving forward.
In a conversation with ComicBook.com, Stephen Broussard, a producer on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, revealed that Marvel were “already thinking” about the next film in the franchise, despite Quantumania serving as the headliner for Phase 5.
“It’s like, every movie’s its own battle and you bear the scars of making it and wanting to make it great. But hope springs eternal and you start to put yourself back together after the journey of making the movie. You’re like, ‘Yeah, what if we did X and what if we did Y?’ Like the wheels start turning, you can’t help yourself.”
“I don’t want to say anything about specifically what those are, but yeah, you can’t help yourself. Those conversations, those whispers have already started to happen between myself and Peyton [Reed, director], and Kevin [Feige, President of Marvel Studios],” Broussard added.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania introduces Marvel’s next big bad, Kang (Jonathan Majors), as Scott Lang’s Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) fights to keep those he loves safe after being pulled into the Quantum realm.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will arrive in cinemas on February 17, 2023, starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Kathryn Newton, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Bill Murray, and Jonathan Majors. There’s even a Scott Lang memoir coming out later in the year. Read the story here.
