And cut! It’s a wrap for the shoot of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania — the third and latest in the Ant-Man movie series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
It is now headed to post-production.
Director Peyton Reed broke the news on Twitter with a shot of Mark James Hiblin’s artwork of Ant-Man’s helmet and the Wasp on it: “Principal photography on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is now complete! Can’t wait to show you all what we’ve been up to…”
The movie is scheduled for a July 2023 release, with Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly reprising their roles as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and the Wasp, respectively.
Other cast members from the first two movies are also expected to return, including Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne.
But there are new faces as well. Kathryn Newton has been cast as the new Cassie, daughter of Scott Lang. Bill Murray is likewise in it, only that his character has yet to be revealed.
Mum’s the word, too, on the plot, though it probably will revolve around the Quantum Realm (based on the Microverse from Marvel Comics), where Janet van Dyne was stranded for 30 years before being rescued; and Scott Lang for five years, although he only experienced five hours in the realm; and which the Avengers later used to time travel and reverse the Blip.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is written by Jeff Loveness (Rick and Morty) and directed by Payton Reed, who also helmed Ant-Man in 2015 and Ant-Man and the Wasp in 2018.
