Ant-Man is good. It clumsily tries to tackle the its own inherent sexism, but it’s good. And while it didn’t make Avengers money, but it made enough to warrant a sequel: now titled Ant-Man and The Wasp. It’d be nice to see Peyton Reed return for it, if only to keep some directorial continuity. The first is an astonishing effects film with superb action sequences, but it falls a bit flat whenever everyone is full-sized. There’ll be more time for preproduction on the sequel, so hopefully we’ll see more some wackiness and character in the final film. We’re past the predictably-structured origin, and now we can get to the meatier, stranger stuff. Oh, and since The Wasp is actually in the bloody title this time, let’s make sure she’s done right. Hope Van Dyne has great potential, and much of it was squandered in Ant-Man.
It’s a great title, a great idea, and it’s currently scheduled to drop on July 6, 2018.
In order to make this happen, Black Panther has been shifted to Feb 6, 2018, and Captain Marvel to March 8, 2019.
And then, Marvel gave us our first indication of plans for Phase 4 by announcing three dates for as-yet-unknown titles. Those dates are May 1, July 10, and November 6 of 2020. It’s gonna be a busy year for the MCU.
