Ant-Man And The Wasp Finishes Filming

Ant-Man and the Wasp is on its way to the big screen. Director Peyton Reed revealed on Twitter early Monday morning that the movie has wrapped filming, with plenty of time left to handle complicated post-production ahead of its July 6, 2018 release.

Paul Rudd is set to return in his role as Scott Lang alongside Evangeline Lilly's Wasp, who will be his equal partner in the film. Reed previously said that it is "every bit as much" her movie as it is Scott's, and to help highlight that, he brought on a superstar to play the original Wasp, Janet VanDyne– Batman Begins actress Michelle Pfeiffer.

Pfeiffer is one of a few new actors joining the upcoming sequel. Justified's Walton Goggins will play weapons firm chairman Sonny Burch, while Fresh Off the Boat's Randall Park will play secret agent Jimmy Woo and Killjoys' Hannah John-Kamen will play the anti-hero the Ghost in what is described as a "key role." The most notable other new addition to the cast, though, is Laurence Fishburne as Bill Foster, also known as Black Goliath. 

Michael Douglas joins Rudd and Lilly in the returning cast for the film as the original Ant-Man. Other confirmed returning characters include Michael Pena as Scott's former cellmate and Judy Greer as his ex-wife Maggie. The film comes from a script by Andrew Barrer (The Crisis of Being Dr. Adam Porter) and Gabriel Ferrari (Holidays) based off a story from Rudd and Adam McKay (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy).
