Marvel Studios may have just postponed its entire Phase 4 slate, but there is some good news for the Marvel Cinematic Universe today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ant-Man 3 just found a writer in the form of Jeff Loveness, one of the writers and co-producers on Rick and Morty.
Peyton Reed is returning to direct the Marvel Studios threequel, which will feature Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp.
The trade notes that this deal was wrapped up at the start of Hollywood's shutdown, so Loveness is already hard at work penning the screenplay. There's no word on when shooting is expected to commence or a release date for the Ant-Man and The Wasp follow-up, but common sense says we probably won't see this one until late 2022/early 2023 at the earliest.
Loveness got his start writing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and also contributed to the Oscars, Emmys, and White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
He also has some Marvel Comics experience after penning titles featuring characters like Spider-Man, Groot, and Nova. There's no word on what Marvel Studios has planned for Ant-Man 3, but the prevailing theory is that we'll see Cassie Lang suit up and possibly even lay the groundwork for the Young Avengers.
Are you guys psyched for Ant-Man 3?
