Peyton Reed To Return For ‘Ant-Man’ Sequel
  |  @   |  

Despite a rough road traveled and lower expectations than usual, Ant-Man was a financial and critical success, proving yet again that Disney and Marvel have a truly special formula that rarely misses. Because of this, it was announced recently that a sequel to the movie titled Ant-Man and the Wasp was officially happening.

Now it appears that a new director doesn’t have to be hired to make the sequel as it’s being reported that Peyton Reed, who replaced Edgar Wright when he departed the first movie, has entered into negotiations to return for the sequel.

Ant-Man cost $130 million to make, and brought back $178.7 million domestically and almost $276 million overseas for a grand total of $454.6 million, which led Marvel to scheduled Ant-Man and the Wasp for a July 6, 2018 release. The character can next be seen in Captain America: Civil War.

No writers are currently attached to the movie, so the next step after locking up Reed will be to figure out who will pen the script. Both Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are set to return as Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne.
