Ant-Man is set to return in another solo movie after hanging out with the Team Avengers in the Captain America: Civil War.
Peyton Reed, Director of the Ant-Man movie has confirmed the sequel ?Ant-Man and the Wasp.? Reed said the movie will now introduce the female lead who has a equal footing in the comic book series. Cinema Blend reports that Reed said, ?Her last line in the movie – ?It?s about damn time? – is very much about her specific character and arc in that movie, but it is absolutely about a larger thing.? He said that we are going to see a very very complicated hero in the movie who happens to be a woman. The credits of the Ant-Man showed Hank revealing the upgraded Wasp suit for Hope which sort of sets up the story for the sequel.?Peyton Reed said that they are ?starting the writing process? and now that rules and environment have been established, the film is free to go to some ?unexpected places.?
According to a report by Wegothiscovered?Adam McKay would return for the screenplay for Ant-Man sequel. He wrote the screen play for Ant-Man and has hinted at possibility for returning in the Ant-Man and the Wasp. Fans are also keen to see him work on the Inhumans movie but we can at least look forward to him working on this movie now.
Movie Pilot?gives an rather unbelievable yet interesting theory as regards to how Ant-Man is connected to the Infinity Wars and holds the key to defeating Thanos in Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is speculated that Janet Van Dyne, wife of Hank and mother of Hope becomes one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel comics universe – ?Eternity?. In Marvel comics?Eternity is physical incarnation of time itself possessing the collective consciousness of every last living creature in the universe.?Since Janet disappeared ages ago in the Quantum Realm she has progressed way beyond microscopic, atomic, subatomic levels in unknown realm where she is shrinking for all eternity. And since origins of Eternity are unknown it is possible than Janet has become Eternity. Hope and Scott will possibly join forces in near future to rescue Janet from Quantum Realm bringing her back to Earth. This will then be the best hope of Avengers to defeat Thanos who once accumulates all six Infinity Stones to complete his gauntlet. The theory surely goes over the top but well we will have more than enough time to catch on the easter eggs that Marvel will be dropping in their movies.
Ant-Man and the Wasp will see Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas are set to reappear in the movie playing the roles of Ant-Man, Wasp and Hank Pym respectively.?Ant-Man And The Wasp is due in cinemas on July 22nd, 2018. You can however catch Ant-Man in action in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie that debuts on May 6th , 2016.
