Peyton Reed to Return to Direct ANT-MAN 3

Marvel Studios has revealed its upcoming movie and series slate through 2021, but it looks like we are beginning to see how things will unfold beyond 2021. We already know CAPTAIN MARVEL 2, BLACK PANTHER 2, and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 are all in development and coming sometime after 2021, but let's add another threequel into the mix.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, ANT-MAN and ANT-MAN AND THE WASP director Peyton Reed has officially signed on to return and complete a trilogy with ANT-MAN 3 (working title, obviously). Regarding when filming reportedly begins and when the movie might release, THR writes:

"No release details have been confirmed but sources say the plan is to shoot at the end of 2020 or top of 2021 for a likely release in 2022. Sources say that sequels Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder will shoot before Ant-Man 3."

ANT-MAN 3 marks the end of actor Paul Rudd's 5-movie studio contract. Actor's have re-upped their Marvel Studios contracts in the past, so it is not out of the question as Rudd seems to genuinely love the role and it has turned his career into high gear.
