The Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps getting bigger and bigger, with this year set to be the first where Marvel Studios will release three movies in a calendar year. The studio will kick off the summer movie season with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on May 5, followed by the highly-anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7 and Thor: Ragnarok on November 3.
The studio will also start production on Black Panther in just a few short days, but today we have word that the studio is planning on shooting the highly-anticipated sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp this June in Atlanta. While we don’t have an exact date at this time, it will give the filmmakers over a year for filming and post-production before its July 6, 2018 release date.
A listing at My Entertainment World confirmed the production start for Ant-Man 2. While no specific locations were given, the production will likely utilize Pinewood Atlanta Studios, which is where the first Ant-Man was shot.
Marvel sequels Captain America: Civil War and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 were also shot at Pinewood Atlanta Studios, along with Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence’s new sci-fi thriller Passengers. With production starting within the next six months, hopefully we’ll have more news about the story and additional cast members.
Paul Rudd returns as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, along with Evangeline Lilly as The Wasp, whose new suit was shown during one of the Ant-Man post-credits sequences.
