Looks like Marvel is moving forward with a third Ant-Man movie and bringing back director Peyton Reed to handle it.
Some fans were confused earlier this year when Marvel’s massive SDCC reveals didn’t include another standalone Ant-Man film. Considering how well received the first two were, many assumed a third film was all but assured.
Well fans, you can rest easy. According to THR, Peyton Reed (who directed the first two films) is in fact returning to helm a third film for the heroes who were last seen in Avengers: Endgame. While it’s too early to have any plot details, it sounds like the film is being planned for a 2022 release.
While I, admittedly, wasn’t a big fan of the first Ant-Man, I absolutely loved Ant-Man and the Wasp. It was such a massive upgrade from the previous film I could hardly believe it. As such I’m really excited to see if they can go even further with Ant-Man 3.
