While Paul Rudd was at the Sundance Film Festival with his new film The Fundamentals of Caring, the sat down with ComingSoon.net and talked about making Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man, sequels and returning to shoot films.


Paul Rudd talks about “Ant-Man” and returning to work on a sequel

“I know that when I signed up for it that there was always the potential that they’d do another one or it would tie in in some way, but specifically, I wasn’t aware and I’m still not totally aware of how that’s the case,” Rudd said about joining the MCU.

Ant-Man performed well enough, especially internationally, and Marvel and Disney greenlit Ant-Man and the Wasp for a July 6, 2018 release.

“We are doing a second one, so those meetings are starting to be scheduled and underway as far as what it’s going to be. We’ll start writing it soon.”

The “we” is writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari, who were hired in December to write Ant-Man and the Wasp along with Rudd, who actually has been an uncredited writer on some of his previous films.

“It’s been very easy,” Rudd said about scheduling with all the potential Marvel movies he has coming up.

“Marvel’s been great, as far as if I have something else and they’ll work around it. It’s not like I’m working on a series which might be a little trickier as far as schedule. I worked on Civil War and I didn’t really work on it for very long, but as far as Ant-Man 2, I already know when that’s going to go, so you just kind of plan accordingly. If anything comes along that I can film before or after and it works out time-wise and it makes sense, Marvel’s been supportive.”
