Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania director Peyton Reed announces the end of head photography with some kinetic new art of the heroes.
Main photography has begun Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Director Peyton Reed, who has so far directed all three films in the franchise, broke the news on Twitter. Along with the announcement, he shared some art of the wasp riding on Giant-Man’s head (or a small version of Wasp on Ant-Man’s head in regular size) by Mark James Hiblin.

With over a year before the film hits theaters, after the entire Marvel Studios’ upcoming board was pushed back, little is still known about the third Ant man movie. It will see the return of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, Evangeline Lily’s Hope van Dyne, Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Janet van Dyne. A number of the side characters are also expected to return, though it looks like Judy Greer’s Maggie Lang will not be back. However, the film will have some new additions.
After debuting as He Who Remains on Loki earlier this year, Jonathan Majors will play Kang, a variation of the character, in Quantum mania. He will serve as the primary villain, probably associated with the titular Quantum Realm. In the comics, Kang jumps through time and builds his empire. Loki teased this with both TVA and the creation of the multiverse. Quantum Realm, meanwhile, turned out to be tied to time travel in Avengers: Endgame.
Rudd recently praised the Majors’ work on the film and said: “I’ve loved everything he’s done and I see what he’s doing in this and I’m knocked out of it. It’s really fun to bring in new people into the fold, and the enthusiasm that people have is to touch and feel. “
While Kang has been confirmed, rumors have swirled that Bill Murray will also have a role in the film. After the first rumor surfaced, Murray almost confirmed his appearance in a German newspaper before later avoiding the issue in a talk show. Rudd himself did the same when asked, though he had nothing but praise for Murray as an actor. There have also been rumors that Jim Carrey will play MODOK in MCU and possibly show up in Ant-Man 3 after debut on Hun-Hulk next year.
