It’s official! Ant-Man 3, aka, Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania has finally wrapped production and it was announced by director Peyton Reed on Twitter, who also added a piece of concept art from artist Mark James Hiblin.
“Principal photography on Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania is now complete! Can’t wait to show you all what we’ve been up to,” the filmmaker said in a Twitter post on Tuesday.
In the third installment in the Ant-Man franchise, we will see Jonathan Majors play the new big Marvel Cinematic Universal villain, Kang The Conqueror. A nastier and scarier incarnation of the variant was first seen in the Loki series earlier in the year.
Kang will be one of the first major threats from The Multiverse and could become just as big of a problem to the universe as Thanos. It’s unclear at this point if The Multiverse will be mixed together with the Quantum Realm, as the title would suggest.
We’ll have to wait and see if Marvel wants Ant-Man 4 or if the studio will decide to stop at three movies, pivoting their resources and energy into something else.
Other members of the cast include Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope, Kathryn Newton as the newest incarnation of Cassie Lang, Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet, and Bill Murray confirmed his involvement not too long ago, but his part is still a mystery.
A reminder that Ant-Man 3’s impressive crew is expected to consist of production designer Will Htay (No Time To Die, Rogue One, Solo, Andor), cinematographer Bill Pope (The Matrix Trilogy, Shang-Chi Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Trilogy, Alita: Battle Angel), second unit director Dan DeLeeuw (Eternals, Avengers: Endgame), and costume designer Sammy Sheldon Differ (Eternals, Jurassic World: Dominion, Ant-Man, X-Men: First Class, Hellboy II: The Golden Army).
It will debut in theaters on July 28, 2023, after Disney adjusted their Phase 4 schedule.
