Ant-Man 3 is reportedly in development, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Peyton Reed, who also directed Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp, will return to helm the third movie. There aren’t any additional details at this time.

Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang was a key player in defeating Thanos, and the Reporter suggests Rudd will likely reprise his starring role. There are a number of Avengers characters who will receive new movies in Marvel’s Phase Four universe, too — that’s anything after Avengers: Endgame. Ant-Man 3 will reportedly follow Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder, according to the Reporter. It’s expected to shoot at the end of next year or at the beginning of 2021.
