Director Peyton Reed to return for ‘Ant-man and Wasp’

Marvel Studios will have Ant-Man director back as Peyton Reed is reportedly in talks to return for the recently announced sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp

THR broke the news of Reed’s return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Paul Rudd will return as Scott Lang, a.k.a. Ant-Man, and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne. Her character will become the Wasp, as teased in the end credits of the first film.

It also seems likely to see Michael Pena back as fans and critics both praised the actor’s role in the film.

“It marks one of the first deals surrounding Marvel’s recently dated movies. In addition to Ant-Man and the Wasp, those films include Black Panther — which moved up from July 6, 2018, to a Feb. 16, 2018 — and Captain Marvel, which was pushed out from Nov. 2, 2018, to March 8, 2019. The studio also scheduled three untitled movies for 2020,” the THR summarized.

The studio announced earlier this month that Ant-Man and the Wasp would open July 6, 2018.

Ant-Man has so far grossed $454 million worldwide, and the numbers are still climbing.

The character will be seen next in 2015’s Captain America: Civil War, noted the THR.
