'Ant-Man' 3: Michael Douglas teases new information about movie, says it's 'coming soon'
There may be some news regarding the third 'Ant-Man' movie, according to Michael Douglas, who played Hank Pym in the first two 'Ant-Man' films. Answering a live Q&A with his fans on Instagram, the star avoided releasing any information himself but he did say that it won't be long before some new information is officially released on the film.
While reading out the questions from his Q&A, Douglas began: "What can you tell us about the status of 'Ant-Man'," before leaning in and whispering conspiratorially towards the camera, he continued, "'Ant-Man 3'." The star refused to reveal any official information, saying, "I can't talk about it, because the Marvel guys, they'll shoot me with a blowgun." He added, "But I think you gotta hang tight, because there may be some information coming out pretty soon."
If true, this would be the first official news about the film beyond reports that the sequel is officially happening. Douglas himself spoiled the reveal of the upcoming film, telling ComicBook.com, "We're starting a third (Ant-Man movie) in the beginning of January 2021." Of course, with the coronavirus pushing all of Marvel's production dates back, it's uncertain now as to when 'Ant-Man' 3 will begin production. The film has not been included on the slate of upcoming Marvel movies, and it's not even clear what the title of the movie is going to be.
Paul Rudd is set to reprise his role as Scott Lang and Peyton Reed is set to return as the film's director. It's been teased that the Quantum Realm will continue to be explored. The last 'Ant-Man' movie saw the return of the original Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), meaning the Pym family is finally reunited. There have also been rumors that the film will jumpstart the superhero career of Cassie Lang (Emma Fuhrmann), who was aged up in the five-year gap of 'Avengers: Endgame'. In the comics, Lang ingested her father's Pym Particles, gaining the natural ability to change her size — first taking on the name Stature before moving on to become Stinger. She was also a founding member of the Young Avengers.
The untitled third 'Ant-Man' movie does not have a release date yet.
