With superhero sequel Ant-Man And The Wasp scheduled for 2018, the Marvel Movie Machine has started to crank into gear, reassembling some of the key talent from both in front of and behind the camera. The latest returns are writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, who performed uncredited work on the first film as it shot and will be back in a more official capacity for the sequel.

Ant-Man And The Wasp should enjoy a much less elongated and torturous development this time around, with star Paul Rudd back on writing duty alongside the pair. As Deadline reports, the full plan is for Barrer, Ferrari and Rudd to come up with the story alongside Adam McKay (who worked with Rudd to re-write a couple of drafts of the script before shooting last time) and for the main trio to go off and work on the script.

Peyton Reed is back as director and will oversee Rudd back in the suit as Scott Lang with Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne finally getting her chance to be a hero as the new Wasp. Michael Douglas has also been approached to reprise his role as Ant-Man suit inventor Hank Pym and our hopes are high that Michael Pena will once more be spinning wild tales as Luis.

The film is currently eyeing a July 6, 2018 release here in the UK, with America unusually considering a day and date schedule. Baskin-Robbins all round!
