It looks like the Ant-man sequel, Ant-man and Wasp, has two new writers onboard.

Deadline are reporting that Paul Rudd, as with the first movie, will be getting a writing credit but he will be joined by Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, who did some production re-write work on Ant-Man.

Paul Rudd will return as Ant-man/Scott Lang and will be joined by the beautiful Evangeline Lilly as Wasp/Hope Van Dyne and we’re hoping Michael Douglas will be back as Hank Pym. Peyton Reed will direct again.

Reed said about Wasp: “That was one of the things that was important to me in the first movie when I came on was emphasizing the Wasp more, both Hope Van Dyne and Janet Van Dyne. It’s a crucial part. It’s a crucial part because in the comic books, with the exception of the first handful of Ant-Man stories, Wasp came on pretty early on in the comics in the ’60s and you really thought of them as a partnership, a romantic partnership as well as a hero team. It’s going to be fun to play  around with all the aspects of that in this movie.”

Ant-Man and The Wasp is set for release on July 6, 2018.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
