Pfeiffer confirmed the news during an appearance on the Ladies First with Laura Brown podcast. However, she declined to share any specific details about the sequel, or if Janet would return to the Quantum Realm. Pfeiffer also said that filming will begin in spring 2021.
Paul Rudd’ and Evangeline Lilly will once again share top billing as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne/Wasp, respectively. Additionally, Michael Douglas will presumably be back as well. Michael Peña, Tip “T.I.” Harris, and David Dastmalchian seem likely to return, but have not been confirmed.
Perhaps the most intriguing piece of Ant-Man 3 news came earlier in the year, when Jonathan Majors was reportedly cast as Kang the Conqueror. Kang is not a traditional Ant-Man villain, but he is an Avengers nemesis with the potential to be the MCU’s next big bad. Kang hails from the far future, and his comic book incarnation has repeatedly attempted to conquer the present.
Ant-Man 3 doesn’t currently have a release date.
