The Ant-Man Sequel Will Co-Star the Wasp!
New York Comic-Con is this weekend, and the news has started swirling! First up is the announcement of the Ant-Man sequel, which will arrive on July 6, 2018. The bigger news is that the movie will be called Ant-Man and the Wasp! Evangeline Lilly will get to don her badass costume and help headline a movie! Hopefully this means she’ll also be included in the toyline, right Marvel?
I’m definitely excited about this. I loved the first Ant-Man, and knowing that a sequel is coming is big news – though I’m probably more excited to see him guest star alongside the other Avengers in next year’s Captain America: Civil War.
The sad news is that the Ant-Man sequel will have some major shake-ups for future Marvel movies. Captain Marvel is getting bumped from November 2018 to March 2019. That’s very disappointing news! I’d rather have that one come first. But also bad is that Black Panther is getting moved ahead to February 2018! Everybody knows that February is a deadzone for new movies! Why would Marvel ever release a movie in February?
Though I have noticed that more studios seem to be putting bigger movies in the January/February zone. The third Kung-Fu Panda is going to come out in that winter period. Surely that’s not expected to bomb, right? Are studios trying to reclaim the winter months?!
