Scott Lang’s misfit band of loveable criminals will be fully reunited in 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, now that Blackfilm has confirmed that actor and rapper T.I. (otherwise known as Tip Harris) will be returning as Dave for the Ant-Man sequel.
The outlet spoke to T.I. at a New York event for the third season of NBC’s The Carmichael Show, where he nodded ‘yes’ when asked if he’d be involved in the sequel. Shooting on the project will reportedly start in less than two months at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios; in 2014, Ant-Man became the first production to film at the location, and ever since, Marvel Studios has returned.
While opinions obviously differ, most would agree that Ant-Man is one of the funnier Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, »

With Ant-Man 2 production reportedly slated to begin next month in Atlanta, it seems some of the cast members are getting ready for shooting to start. Evangeline Lilly, who returns as Hope Van Dyne, a.k.a. The Wasp, revealed on social media that she recently had a fitting for her new Wasp costume. While she wouldn't offer any specific details about the suit, the actress certainly did seem excited to get back to work. And she showed off some of the concept art that was on display at the recent Marvel open house. Here's what she had to say.
"Had a fitting for my #Wasp costume last week. Am I the only one getting excited????? #eee #antmanandthewasp #marvel @marvel"
The actress wouldn't say more about the project on Twitter, but the actress is quite active on social media, so hopefully we'll get many more updates from the set as »
We’re a bit over 13 months away from the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, the follow-up to the original Ant-Man, which hit theaters back in 2015. The movie, while pretty formulaic, was still enjoyable enough, and audiences responded helping the film break $500 million at the box office. While not a huge smash hit, it more than made up its production costs, and proved that audiences would be okay with a more lighthearted and smaller scale Earth-based venture.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is also notable because it will be the first Marvel Studios film to have a female superhero name in the title, beating out Captain Marvel by a solid year. In the first film, we saw the superhero the Wasp in flashbacks, but by the time the credits rolled, it was clear that Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne was going to don the wings in their next appearance.

When people talk about their favorite Marvel films, you’ll often hear the likes of Captain America: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers brought up – which is understandable. However, there’s a small but passionate fanbase who hold Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man near and dear, citing it as one of the studio’s stronger efforts. And that’s a sentiment we wholeheartedly agree with.
Though not the best Marvel movie to date, Ant-Man was an incredibly fun ride with some fantastic set pieces, ensuring that it did fairly well with both critics and audiences alike and leading to a sequel being pushed into production. It’ll arrive in 2018 under the moniker Ant-Man And The Wasp and slowly but surely, it’s starting to come together. Reed will be back behind the camera with returning stars Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly set to lead again, alongside Michael Douglas and Michael Pena. »

Marvel hasn't released a movie yet that hasn't been successful enough to not warrant a sequel. And even though 2015's Ant-Man is on the low end of the box office spectrum for the Disney superhero mega-franchise, we're still going to see Paul Rudd in a follow-up. And he'll be bringing his partner in crime David Dastmalchian with him. While Dave couldn't whisper too many secrets to Entertainment Weekly, he was able to share a few precious details.
Most notably that this Ant-Man sequel is going to be a brain melter when it comes to some of the key action sequences that will play out. Ant-Man and the Wasp is going to be bigger and crazier than its predecessor. But what that looks like is anybody's guess right now.
David Dastmalchian is under sworn oath not to share any plot details. We'll have to wait until closer to the movie's 2018 release date. »

With summer blockbuster season 2017 in full swing, and with Fast & Furious 8 speeding over the $1bn mark already, a bunch of filmmakers are furiously putting together their films for release this time next year (or thereabouts). Here, as things stand, is the state of summer blockbuster season 2018. We’ve veered towards UK release dates on the whole, but as always, things can quickly change.
Also, we’ve not included unnamed films: Universal, for instance, has reserved a slot for one of its classic monster universe movies, but not told anybody what it is yet. As more information pops up, we’ll keep this list up to date…

Marvel is still quite a ways off from debuting their first female-led McU film, Captain Marvel in early 2019. However, the studio has developed several important female roles, from Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) to Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) to Gamora (Zoe Saldana), who each exhibited agency and propelled narrative in their respective films. 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy stood out with four developed female roles, which were all pivotal in bringing that story to resolution.
Director/writer James Gunn's sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, apparently delves deeper into its female characters, bringing back fan favorites Gamora and Nebula (Karen Gillan), and investing heavily in their family conflicts. Star-Lord's mother Meredith (Laura Haddock) also returns and the empath Mantis (Pom Klementieff) is introduced as a new team member.

It's finally happening, folks! With the release of Ant-man And The Wasp, Evangeline Lilly's Hope Van Dyne will become known as the first female character to lead a Marvel Studios film! Obviously, Paul Rudd's charming Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man will remain as an integral part of the film, though director Peyton Reed has stated that Lilly is poised to step equally into the spotlight for this...

During athe mid-credits scene for Marvel’s Ant-Man, it was teased that Ant-Man’s female counterpart The Wasp (to be played by Evangeline Lilly) was going to be a part of the upcoming sequel, now titled Ant-Man and The Wasp. However, that is really all we had to go on. Until now, that is, as Collider has recently sat down for an interview with Ant-Man and The Wasp director Peyton Reed, who was kind enough to give fans some insight into how this duo will interact on-screen.
“It’s something we’re excited about. For me as a comic nerd, I always thought of Ant-Man and Wasp as a team and that’s a lot of what the second movie is really about is how they work together, what their personal and professional relationships are like. To show her finally fully formed in this movie is really exciting. We really »

Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne had a fairly significant role in Ant-Man, but many fans were disappointed that she never had the chance to suit up as The Wasp. The movie ended with that being teased, of course, and now everyone is excited to see her take centre stage in the appropriately titled Ant-Man and The Wasp.
Originally, the plan was for her to appear as the hero in Captain America: Civil War, but Marvel decided to save that moment for the Ant-Man sequel to make it really count. For those of you worrying that the character isn’t being properly utilized, though, fear not, as the film’s director, Peyton Reed, had this to say recently:
“It’s something we’re excited about. For me as a comic nerd, I always thought of Ant-Man and Wasp as a team and that’s a lot of what the second »

Luke Evans doesn't seem to be skipping any workout sessions.
The Beauty and the Beast star showed off his muscles in an Instagram video on Thursday, proving that it takes hard work to maintain his chiseled physique.
In the short clip, Evan helps build up his shoulder muscles by lifting two huge free weights.
"Lets get some boulder shoulders," Evans captioned the video along with the hashtags "#trainhard" and "#playharder."
The Welsh actor also treated fans to a Throwback Thursday snap with his co-stars from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies at Comic-Con in 2014.
"A Hobbit, a dwarf, a dragon, some elves and a bowman walk into a bar… #Tbt," Evans captioned the photo featuring Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Evangeline Lilly.
While Evans is currently shooting the thriller 10 x10 in »
Yesterday Marvel Studios held an open house, inviting outlets to get a special peek at several of its upcoming Phase Three offerings. We’ve already had details on Captain Marvel’s directors, promo art from Thor: Ragnarok, and a reveal from Ragnarok director Taika Waititi that he’s playing Korg, and now thanks to The Hollywood Reporter we’ve got a description of some Black Panther footage that was shown, along with concept art for Ant-Man and the Wasp.
“Journalists were treated to footage of a coronation scene for T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), who appears bare-chested and holding ceremonial weapons to take on the monarch role left empty following his father’s death in Captain America: Civil War,” states THR’s report. “In another scene, Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) stealthily takes down a group of gun-toting bad guys, and in a third, Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) rolls into »

Earlier this week, Disney took the stage at CinemaCon with a brief presentation, and while some fans were hoping for Star Wars or Marvel news to come out of this panel, that didn't happen, with the bulk of the event used for a screening of the studio's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Before the screening, though, the studio did discuss its massive slate, which included our first look at the official logo for Ant-Man and the Wasp, which will hit theaters next summer. Of course, since Ant-Man 2 doesn't start filming until this coming June in Atlanta, there isn't any official photos or footage the studio could have shown, but now at least we know what the logo looks like.
The logo was captured during the presentation by Twitter user Caleb Williams, who snapped a photo of Disney's full slate, which shows Ant-Man and the Wasp »
It looks like Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne may not be the only superheroes in action in Ant-Man and the Wasp, with Showbiz 411 reporting that Jeremy Renner will be reprising the role of Hawkeye for the 2018 sequel.
Renner is currently shooting Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, but the report states that he’ll also be shooting the Ant-Man follow-up back-to-back(-to-back) with the Avengers movies once production gets underway in the summer, which will prevent him from appearing in Mission: Impossible 6.
Meanwhile, during Disney’s CinemaCon presentation, we also got a glimpse at the first logo for Ant-Man and the Wasp, although we can probably expect this to change at least once before the film hits in 2018…

While promoting his hit sci-fi film Arrival last year, Jeremy Renner was asked if his commitments to Avengers: Infinity War would interfere with returning as Brandt in Mission: Impossible 6. Since the production schedules for both movies seemed to overlap, the actor wasn't exactly sure how it would all shake out, but it seems that there is also another project that will now definitely keep the actor away from Mission: Impossible 6. A new report claims that, not only is Jeremy Renner shooting Avengers: Infinity War, but he'll also be gearing up to return as Hawkeye in Ant-Man and the Wasp.
This new report comes from Showbiz 411, which reveals that Jeremy Renner will shoot both Avengers 3 and Ant-Man 2 back-to-back. Filming is already under way on Avengers Infinity War, which will also be shot back-to-back with Avengers 4, with the entire shoot slated to stretch until sometime this fall. In between this massive shoot, »
Earlier this week, it was reported that CHIPs star Michael Peña had been left in the dark about Ant-Man and the Wasp, thereby casting doubt on whether his fast-talking Luis will have a role to play in Marvel’s 2018 sequel.
Considering that Pena’s cunning crook was arguably one of, if not the best supporting character in Peyton Reed’s hit original, Marvel fans were aghast. But thankfully, Peña has now walked back his comments regarding Ant-Man 2 to confirm that Luis will return after all. Whether the actor’s original statement was simply a faux pas or a breakdown in communication is anyone’s guess, but while chatting to Lrm (via Screen Rant) about his upcoming role in the R-rated CHIPs reboot, Michael Peña put any and all rumors to bed.
Next on Peña’s plate is the alien invasion movie Extinction, which is coming by way of Universal »

The Internet sometimes can spread rumors like wildfire.
He told Collider, “No, No. I haven’t gotten the phone call yet. I don’t know if I’m gonna get the phone call. Who knows?”
Now, it’s unclear when the interview took place, but a lot of things can happen since that interview. In the meantime, several online news outlets are reporting that there's a chance he may not be in the movie due to no phone call.
During the red carpet of Chips, Lrm was attendance for the »

Michael Pena was easily one of the best parts of Ant-Man, but he may not even appear in its sequel. Pena revealed that he hasn’t received a call yet to return in Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to the 2014 movie starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas. The movie is set to […]

Ant-Man featured a fun group of supporting characters, but aside from lead stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly, we don’t currently know who will be returning for the upcoming sequel, Ant-Man And The Wasp. The movie is expected to revolve around the hunt for original Wasp, Janet Van Dyne, in the Quantum Realm though, which obviously sheds some doubt on whether or not Scott Lang will need to team-up with the band of crooks from the first instalment.
Something which seems to emphasize the fact that the group won’t return alongside their leader is that Michael Pena has yet to hear anything from Marvel Studios about a potential return. It’s still very early days, of course, but Ant-Man And The Wasp already has a working title, so it can’t be too far off from shooting. Either way, here’s what he had to share:
