In a video celebrating the love of storytelling and the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most memorable moments, Marvel Studios gives a hint of what’s to come in Phase 4, with some previews of their upcoming movies and release dates. Among them the new film by Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania: February 17, 2023.
Back in February, Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne/Wasp) revealed that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania would begin filming this summer, and based on her latest Instagram post, it looks like production for the film is on track. The actor took to social media to reveal that she just had her first costume fitting for her new Wasp suit. Lilly joked that she would love to be able to show off the suit, but she doesn’t want to be a spoiler like Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk).

Evangeline Lilly, who portrays The Wasp, has confirmed through her Instagram that production on the third Ant-Man film will be starting production this summer.
This confirms Murphy’s Multiverse’s scoop, which was reported last year.
The film was originally supposed to start production in early 2021 but fell prey to the COVID-19 outbreak, which stopped every working production. As some projects starting up again, the normal flow process for studios should head back to normal in the coming months; with necessary precautions of course.
Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed is returning to helm the film, with no current production start date set. Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce the project and likely won’t until Loveness completes the script.
Details on the project are being kept under wraps, but franchise stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang aka Ant-Man), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne aka Wasp), Michael Dough (Dr. Hank Pym), and Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet Van Dyne) are all expected to return to the heist-adventure film series. There have been previous rumors that the film could set up a Young Avenger film or series.
Details on the project are being kept under wraps, Jeff Loveness (Rick and Morty) wrote the script. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is expected to hit theaters in 2022.
During Disney’s Investor Day event in December, officially confirmed that Ant-Man and the Wasp would be returning for a third film called “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania”.
This new theatrical film will be directed by Ant-Man director Peyton Reed and will see Paul Rudd return as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly returning as Hope Van Dyne/Wasp. With Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer both returning in their roles as Dr Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne. Kathryn Newton will also be joining the cast as Scott’s daughter Cassie Lang with Jonathan Majors portraying the main villain, Kang the Conqueror.
It was revealed on the Turkish TV channel Habertürk TV by the Turkish Minister of Culture and Tourism, Mehmet Nuri Ersoy, that filming has now begun on the film in Cappadocia.
Cappadocia can be found in central Turkey and is known for its distinctive “fairy chimneys,” tall, cone-shaped rock formations clustered in Monks Valley, Göreme and elsewhere. Other notables sites in the region include Bronze Age homes carved into valley walls by troglodytes (cave dwellers) and later used as refuges by early Christians.
Marvel is currently filming multiple films and Disney+ series around the world including “Thor: Love and Thunder”, “Moon Knight”, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and “Spider-Man 3”. It’s not known if the cast is also in Turkey to film their scenes or if they are shooting at locations.
Both “Ant-Man” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp” are available to stream on Disney+ now. “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” is due to be released in theatres in 2022.
Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly return for Ant-Man 3, now titled ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania’. Also, during the 2020 Investor Day presentation of The Walt Disney Company by Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios and Creative Director of Marvel, it was revealed that Kathryn Newton is joining the cast as Cassie Lang, Scott Lang’s daughter.
Paul Rudd reprises his role as Ant-Man, alongside Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne/Wasp. Joining them are returning cast members Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym, and Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne — aka, Hope’s parents.
Additionally, Jonathan Majors will portray Kang the Conqueror, with three-time repeat Ant-Man director Peyton Reed returning behind the camera.
