According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ant Man director Peyton Reed is in negotiations to return for 2018’s Ant Man and the Wasp. The film, which will presumably see Evangeline Lilly‘s Hope Van Dyne take her mother’s hero alias and the suit her father spent 30 years making, was recently announced and shifted release dates for other Marvel films like Black Panther and Captain Marvel.
Reed took over directing Ant Man after original director Edgar Wright dropped out and several other directors declined. Wright had been developing the film since the early days of Marvel Studios, but as the Marvel Cinematic Universe evolved, his vision and theirs no longer matched up. He departed citing “creative differences.”
The final film turned out to be a jolly and light heist film with superhero shades, Michael Douglas as eccentric inventor Hank Pym and a fun shout-out to the MCU centered on Ant Man’s encounter with Anthony Mackie‘s Falcon.
Paul Rudd, who will also appear as Ant Man Scott Lang in Captain America: Civil War, will also be back when Ant Man and the Wasp opens on July 6th, 2018.
