One of the best parts of the original Ant-Man was how director Peyton Reed utilized his size-shifting powers, and he's already going to work on doing so again in the sequel.
The Ant-Man director gave fans a sneak peek at some props from the set on social media. The staff can be seen carrying some large props, but this being Ant-Man and all, the props consist of a pair of giant scissors and a large pencil. Reed shared the image with the simple caption "Prep. #antmanandthewasp."
Most of the cast is returning for the sequel, which will bring Evangeline Lilly's Hope Van Dyne into the fray with her own Wasp suit, glimpsed at the end of the first film. Reed has said in the past that Wasp isn't in the title for appearances only, but will co-headline the film with Paul Rudd.
Last time fans saw Rudd he was holding up in Wakanda alongside Captain America's rogue Avengers, which also includes Falcon, Scarlet Witch, the Winter Solider, and Hawkeye. How this will play into Ant-Man and the Wasp isn't known yet, but hopefully, more details come to the light soon.
In Ant-Man, forced out of his own company by former protégé Darren Cross, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) recruits the talents of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a master thief just released from prison. Lang becomes Ant-Man, trained by Pym and armed with a suit that allows him to shrink in size, possess superhuman strength and control an army of ants. The miniature hero must use his new skills to prevent Cross, also known as Yellowjacket, from perfecting the same technology and using it as a weapon for evil.
Ant-Man was directed by Peyton Reed, with a screenplay by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and Adam McKay & Paul Rudd, and stars Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip "T.I." Harris, Anthony Mackie, Wood Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, and Michael Douglas.
