Marvel unveiled its Phase Four schedule at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but Ant-Man 3 wasn’t on the list. News about Ant-Man 3 has been practically non-existent since Ant-Man and the Wasp’s 2018release. Hope had been snapped out of existence at the end of that movie, while Scott was left behind in the Quantum Realm. Endgame brought them back into the action, hinting at Ant-Man 3‘s post-blip setting.
It’s been radio silence from Marvel since then, with no indication that Ant-Man 3 would arrive anytime soon. Thankfully, Ant-Man 3 director Peyton Reed recently confirmed he’s been working on the film despite the Covid–19 pandemic. Here’s everything we know about Ant-Man 3, including the movie’s release date, cast, plot, and more.
When is the release date for Ant-Man 3?
There’s no scheduled release date just yet, but the film is currently set to hit theaters at some point in 2022. That means that it’ll likely be a part of the MCU’s plans for Phase Five, if Phase Four ends with Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. However, given the industry-wide delays throughout 2020, Marvel may revise its Phase Four plans to include Ant-Man 3.
It’s possible that the film wasn’t announced at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con because Reed hadn’t closed his deal with Marvel at that poin. What’s more, Rick and Morty scribe Jeff Loveness wasn’t hired to write Ant-Man 3 until April, which would also explain the delay.
Is there a trailer for Ant-Man 3?
Not yet. Production hasn’t yet started on the film, so don’t expect a trailer until several months ahead of the official release date announcement. Watch this space.
