Marvel Studios announced that production has begun on Ant-Man and The Wasp, starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña and Academy Award winner Michael Douglas, who all return to the roles they originated in Ant-Man. Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris and David Dastmalchian also reprise their supporting roles.
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: Ant-Man and The Wasp. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.
The highly-anticipated follow-up welcomes Academy Award nominees Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne, along with Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins and Randall Park to the ensemble cast.
Ant-Man director Peyton Reed returns to helm Marvel Studios’ action-adventure from a screenplay by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, and Paul Rudd. The film, which opens in U.S. theaters on July 6, 2018, will be filmed in Atlanta and San Francisco.
