2021 will see one of the largest group of MCU movies shot as Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse of Madness and Spider-Man: No Way Home wrapped earlier this year. Stuff such as Thor: Love & Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, The Marvels (Captain Marvel 2), Ant-Man 3, and Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.3 will have kicked-off filming.
While we’ve had a few teases that production was underway before this week, it looks like Monday has seen cameras begin to roll on Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania (Dust Bunny) and director Peyton Reed posted on Twitter that production has started (spotted by Ant-Man News) but was sadly deleted. It included our first set photo that had Cassie’s ugly rabbit doll in a lab set.
You can check out that post/image from Peyton Reed below.
The cast includes Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Kathryn Newton as the newest incarnation of Cassie Lang, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Jonathan Majors playing the film’s villain Kang The Conqueror (the evil variant of Loki’s He Who Remains).
The title suggests a return to the Quantum Realm and having Kang involved would give the impression that this will be another MCU film that will incorporate The Multiverse, as Loki has introduced audiences to the idea of variants and different universes interacting with each other. Kang and his variants are expected to become the successors to Thanos becoming the MCU’s big bads for years to come.
We previously revealed the film’s production designer is Will Htay and they return to San Francisco to shoot various exterior scenes. Main production is taking place at Pinewood Studios UK and they’ll have access to The Volume/StageCraft that director Peyton Reed previously used on Season 2 of The Mandalorian.
Ant-Man & The Wasp will debut in theaters on February 17, 2023.
