Three-time MCU director Peyton Reed has officially confirmed that Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania is now filming. The man who brought us the last two Ant-Man titles announced via his Twitter feed that day one of principal photography kicked off this morning.
The announcement came with a cameo of the creepy Easter Bunny we were first introduced to in the original Ant-Man film. It is a reminder that Scott Lang is the father we all deserve.

So far, there’s not too much information on the sequel. However, if IMDB is to be believed (considering yours truly has his own listing, I’d take this with a grain of salt), then Jonathan Majors will be migrating from Loki to Quantumania. Returning stars will be Evangeline Lilly as Hope, Paul Rudd as Scott, Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym, and a very welcome Michelle Pfeiffer as the original Wasp.
The film is set to premiere on February 17, 2023. It will make a great late Valentine’s Day present for those of us who forget these things every year, only to be reminded with our spouses/significant others/both start breaking our collectibles.
How the heroes will come into contact with Kang the Conquer (Jonathan Majors) is a mystery, a quantum leap went wrong? A new Avengers-level threat or invasion into our world? Is Loki a jerk again? Who knows.
I guess that the quantum realm has been discovered and explored by more than just Pym and friends. So naturally, this could draw the attention of the TVA and Kang, but to what ends? Considering that the Secret War may be the next ultimate arc of this new MCU phase, this Ant-Man story may just be a tiny step in a much bigger world.
Think I got it right? Wrong? In between? Let us know your theories in the comments section.
