It might not have set the box office aflame the way Avengers: Age Of Ultron, but Ant-Man was still a qualified success and launched new characters in Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang and Evangeline Lily’s Hope Van Dyne. Marvel is capitalising on that, shuffling its schedule to accommodate sequel Ant-Man And The Wasp, which will arrive in July 2018.

Nothing was revealed about the team behind the film – this is really more of a planting of the flag – but the studio will no doubt be putting feelers out and gathering the requisite talent soon. There’s a chance that Peyton Reed will return to direct given his light touch on the first one, but Marvel doesn’t specify. And yes, it means we get a proper focus on Janet taking on the mantle of the Wasp, as originally carried by her mother.

The new arrival means there has been some juggling of the schedules for other Marvel releases, with **Black Panther **shifting up to February 2018 and **Captain Marvel **moving back to March 2019.

And there are more movies on the way, with Disney and Marvel announcing three untitled superhero pics for 2020, one arriving in May, one in July and one in November. The phases continue!
