Ant-Man and The Wasp made it clear that the Wasp is not just Ant-Man’s sidekick. She is his equal. Something that director Peyton Reed states was done on purpose. In a new interview, he talks about how including the Wasp in the title was not an anomaly.

Reed stated:

“They’re a partnership, and she’s a very, very important part of that. And that was a very gratifying thing, I guess technically we were the first Marvel movie with a female hero in the title of the movie. Finding that balance in that movie, that’s very important to me because that’s very much a men’s playing field, historically. But that’s really, really changing now in a great way.”

Reed’s comments come after a rumor that had stated Evangeline Lilly’s part in the third Ant-Man film would be reduced. Or even dropped. (This due to comments Lilly had made some ill-conceived commentary on the importance of social distancing due to COVID-19. She’s since apologized for this).

Reed has also confirmed that he is working on the third film during quarantine:

“We have [cracked the story]. Nothing is official yet, but we’re quietly working. We’re working through the pandemic.”

Are you excited for the third Ant-Man film?
