Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce a third ‘Ant-Man‘ movie but Michael Douglas has shared that “there’s been talk” about another film. The news came during a set visit for the extremely entertaining ‘The Kominsky Method’ where things, of course, turned to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is hard to be attached to the property and not get peppered with questions about it. He does say that nothing is official at this time as “they always kind of spring it on me. The first time you hear about it, it’s already in its third rewrite.”
However, you can likely get your hopes up because “There’s been talk [about another Ant-Man]… [but] there’s been nothing formal right now that I know of.” Of course, the MCU likes to release these type of films in at least 3’s so far, so another outing with Douglas as Hank Pym was likely already on the unofficial release schedule.
The next appearance in a Marvel film for Douglas will be in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ which he is keeping pretty tight lipped about:
“You know I can’t say a word about that. They have one of those machines that, as soon as you say the word ‘Avengers,’ a blowgun comes to the side of my neck.”
This doesn’t appear to work on either Mark Ruffalo or Tom Holland, but at least most of the actors have gotten the memo and seem to have fun with not being able to reveal anything.
Director Peyton Reed previously mentioned that he hoped a third film was happening:
“Hopefully we’re going to get to do another film, but we honestly don’t know yet. But we definitely have a lot of ideas and things we’ve certainly set up in this movie. There is [an idea for a trilogy]… as we were writing the second one, [we were] coming up with stuff we wanted to set up. We definitely had ideas for character arcs for all the characters, and I certainly have some of my own, some of which I’ve shared with Marvel, some I haven’t. But I really, really hope we get to further their stories.”
