Much like most of Marvel Studios' Phase 4 slate, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is completely shrouded in mystery. 

Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily will obviously return as the titular Avengers, while Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer will reprise their roles as Veteran MCU heroes Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne.

Following his debut as Loki's villainous TVA creator He Who Remains, Johnathon Majors will feature as the bite-sized blockbuster's central antagonist, Kang the Conqueror. Meanwhile, in a new addition to the MCU cast, Kathryn Newton is replacing Emma Fuhrmann as Scott Lang's daughter Cassie.

Aside from the cast, title, and February 2023 release date, virtually nothing is known regarding Ant-Man's next adventure. Principal photography recently commenced on July 26, over a year and a half before the sequel hits theaters.

As things get underway on Marvel's latest production, the film's writer has shared a funny peek behind the scenes.


Following the beginning of production on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the Paul Rudd-led sequel's writer, Jeff Loveness, has shared a funny image on Instagram of him working from the Marvel Studios set.

The hilarious behind-the-scenes look shows the writer masked up, working away on his laptop, and sat on a rather uncomfortable-looking chair next to a fire escape.

Loveness ironically captioned the image of his makeshift work station: “the beauty of cinema.”


Any look behind the scenes of a Marvel Studios production is always an intriguing one. But it's particularly entertaining when it looks as cheap and dingy as what Loveness has shared since Disney's films and series are usually associated with grandeur, high-budgets, and advanced technology.

Typically, when thinking of a film set, people's minds jump to the director, actors, and pretty much every member of the crew besides the writer. While the bulk of the scripting work is obviously complete before the cameras start rolling, it's common for the man behind the story to be on set for last-minute rewrites and general consultation.

The trilogy-completing Ant-Man sequel has been in production under a week at the time of writing, so it's still early days and there's a long time to go before the February 2023 release. So far, there have yet to be any images released of the A-list stars, but with principal currently taking place on set as opposed to location shooting, it will likely be some time before anything from the secretive sequel goes public.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania hits theaters on February 17, 2023.
