Marvel Studios have just announced the title and release date of the Ant-Man sequel. Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp will return in the aptly named, Ant-Man and the Wasp. I like that Marvel Studios have gone for a more classic sounding title for this one. If any part of the MCU should have a more light-hearted name it is this one. The name of this movie sounds like the name of a comic series.

Ant-Man and Wasp comicsThe second movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to focus on the characters is currently set for release on July 6 2018. Which places it in Phase 3 of Marvel Studios’ shared universe franchise of films.

The release date positions Ant-Man and the Wasp as the first movie after Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1. So it should be really interesting to see how the events of the universe threatening war are shaping the MCU and how it effects the characters of this movie.
