Together, both Ant-Man movies have brought in over a billion dollars for Marvel Studios, and while nothing has been officially announced, the good news is there is at least talk of an Ant-Man 3.
Entertainment Tonight caught up with Michael Douglas, who plays Hank Pym in the Marvel movies:
“There’s been talk [about another Ant-Man]… [but] there’s been nothing formal right now that I know of,” he told reporters during a Television Critics Association set visit to his Netflix show, The Kominsky Method, on Thursday. “They always kind of spring it on me. The first time you hear about it, it’s already in its third rewrite.”
Last we saw of Hank Pym was during the Ant-Man and the Wasp post-credit scene when he turned to dust along with Michelle Pfeiffer’s Janet Van Dyne and their daughter Hope Van Dyne, played by Evangeline Lilly. Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang was also seen stuck in the Quantum Realm, but judging by the recent Avengers: Endgame trailers, it seems as if somehow Scott Lang has made his escape.
Back in August of last year also saw Marvel Studios producer Stephen Broussard talk about the potential of an Ant-Man 3.
“I think there’s more to do there. At this point in the process with the first Ant-Man, based on a glimmer of what you saw if you froze your DVD at the right place, we had the idea of ‘What if part two was about finding Janet?’ And it was an inkling of an idea,” Broussard said. “Nothing’s been announced [about Ant-Man 3], I’m not coyly sitting on any announcement. There really is no plans for the next one, but you can’t help but talk as filmmakers and creative people about where you would go next if you ever got the opportunity.”
Broussard also offered where the movie could go if Marvel chose to do a third film:
“And we talk a lot about the Quantum Realm and there would be perhaps more opportunity to go down there. Maybe there’s more down there than we realized,” Broussard said. “Clearly, Janet’s been up to something and has different clothes on and some weapons. Where did those come from? And similarly, if you look at the right moment and freeze the DVD in a certain place, maybe you’ll see something else as well that could tip a hat to where the story could go.”
