‘Ant-Man 3’ Moves Forward With ‘Rick And Morty’ Writer

When Marvel Studios made the recent decision to move Black Widow and all of their Phase 4 slate due to the pandemic, they also used that time to officially announce new projects, such as Captain Marvel 2. And it seems they weren’t done, as we have our first real info on Ant-Man 3 in quite a while.

THR reports Rick and Morty writer Jeff Loveness has been brought on to pen Ant-Man 3. The deal was closed just as the Hollywood shutdown was starting, so Loveness is already at work on the script. Last year we learned Peyton Reed would be returning to direct the diminutive Avenger’s latest adventure. With Loveness on board, expect the weird sci-fi humor to be cranked up to another level.

Paul Rudd will be suiting up once again as Scott Lang, the former thief-turned-superhero. He’ll be joined by Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne aka Wasp (despite some wanting her out due to recent insensitive comments), Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, and Michael Pena as the motor-mouthed Luis. Michelle Pfeiffer may return as Janet Van Dyne, as well, although I don’t think that has been confirmed.
