Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Production
Director Peyton Reed stated before the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) that there is “a lot to play with” for a third film in the franchise. They were “just dipping our toes into it” in the first two films, Reed said of the Quantum Realm, which was introduced in Ant-Man (2015) and explored further in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Reed added that he and Marvel Studios were hopeful about a third film and had discussed potential story points for such a sequel. In February 2019, Hank Pym actor Michael Douglas confirmed that informal discussions regarding a sequel to Ant-Man and the Wasp had taken place (2019). In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lilly said, “Hope is mid-journey. I don’t see her journey as being over by any stretch.”In October of the same year, Michelle Pfeiffer expressed interest in reprising her role as Janet van Dyne in a sequel, and when asked about the future of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang / Ant-Man in the MCU following Endgame, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said, “The chess pieces.
When the month of November 2019 rolled around, Reed had formally committed to directing a third Ant-Man picture. Filming was scheduled to begin in January 2021 with a likely release date in 2022, and Reed was hired again despite Marvel’s interest in new filmmakers bringing different takes on their heroes for each film because executives felt he had “a real grasp on the Ant-Man universe and wanted he return to wrap up his trilogy” After the epidemic began to have an impact on all film productions, it became unclear when filming for the film would begin.
In August 2020, however, Reed announced that development on the film was ongoing despite the outbreak. It was previously reported that Lilly’s role in the film would be diminished after her contentious statements regarding the pandemic, but he has since assured fans that she will continue to have equal billing with Rudd in the film. In addition to Feige and Reed, Marvel Studios producer Brian Gay said the film would “feel like a real departure” from the first two Ant-Man films and be a big adventure. Fellow Marvel Studios executive Stephen Broussard was producing the film alongside Feige.
Turkey’s Minister of Culture and Tourism Mehmet Ersoy announced on February 4, 2021, that filming had begun in the region of Cappadocia, with the production also set to film in other parts of Turkey. In the first week of March, it was revealed that Tip “T.I.” Harris would not be returning as his character Dave from the first two Ant-Man films. The news came after sexual abuse allegations against Harris and his wife Tameka Cottle surfaced.
Production on the film, which has the working title Dust Bunny, began on July 26, 2021, at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire with the help of the same StageCraft virtual production technology Reed used while directing episodes of the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian. No major cast members were harmed in the accident, and the film’s original release date of October was pushed back to July 28, 2023. Later that month, Bill Murray confirmed he had filmed scenes for a Marvel picture alongside Reed, widely assumed to be Quantumania.
Despite not being interested in superhero films, Murray said he joined the project because he liked Reed and his work on Bring It On (2000), and then indicated his involvement in the film, but said he could not comment on his prior statement; Murray later said he was playing a “bad guy” in the film. Principal photography was completed in November 2021, and the production was slated to mo.
