Michael Pena discusses ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ but confirms plans for ‘Ant-Man 3’

Michael Pena may have revealed Marvel Studios is already working on Ant-Man 3.

While Marvel Studios has taken a few chances over the last ten years, the first film Ant-Man was deemed a big one. Even after Marvel made Guardians of the Galaxy a worldwide hit, there was plenty of doubt that Ant-Man could succeed.

Now, Ant-Man co-star Pena spoke to IGN about the new film, working with Chris Hemsworth on 12 Strong: “…It’s a whole different kind of club to be in, the Marvel Universe. I don’t know if they’ll use me for the third movie, I still really don’t know. It’s cool to make a little bit of a mark on that Marvel Universe and it’s kind of a cool club, they run a really cool studio.”

Screen Rant notes that “With the likes of Captain MarvelDoctor Strange, and Black Panther very likely to get sequels/trilogies of their own. In all of the other franchises, Marvel Studios has completed the trilogy, or have plans to do just that. Even if Ant-Man & The Wasp hasn’t hit theaters, knowing Marvel Studios is thinking ahead is hardly a surprise.”

Not much is known about the new film, but there are rumors the Ant-man sequel will be a romantic comedy.

Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man) returns with Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp) and Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), T.I. aka Tip Harris (Dave), David Dastmalchian (Kurt) and Pena (Luis). Judy Greer has been confirmed to play Maggie Lang again as Randall Park is joining the MCU as SHIELD agent, Jimmy Woo, and Laurence Fishburne is playing a villain, Dr. Bill Foster. Hannah John-Kamen, she’s playing Ghost, while Walton Goggins is taking on the role of a weapons designer, Sonny Burch. Foster acquires the ability to grow into a giant-sized baddie named Goliath.

Marvel also announced the casting of Michelle Pfeiffer as Hank Pym’s wife Janet and the first Wasp.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will be arriving in theaters on July 6, 2018.
