Filming Is Reportedly Underway On Ant-Man And The Wasp, And Scott Lang Is On The Run

We are, at the time of writing, exactly one year out from the theatrical release of Ant-Man and the Wasp here in the States, and it seems Marvel is ready to fire up the cameras on Peyton Reed’s diminutive sequel.

Just Jared has relayed a batch of set photos fresh from the streets of Atlanta, Georgia, which is also playing host to Avengers: Infinity War. As one would expect for two Hollywood tentpoles releasing within the space of two months – Ant-Man 2 is penciled in for July 6th, 2018, while Joe and Anthony Russo plan to wage Infinity War on May 4th of 2018 – both Marvel films appear to be filming simultaneously.

This, coupled with the fact that the Russo Brothers have been busy capturing scenes with Robert Downey Jr., Benedicts Cumberbatch and Wong, along with Mark Ruffalo, leads us to believe that these set snaps are actually taken from the production of Ant-Man and the Wasp, where we see Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang dressed in civvies and running towards the camera. Remember, this is the first time that Rudd’s reluctant hero has appeared in the MCU since his brief, yet memorable turn in Captain America: Civil War, so it’s likely Scott Lang will be on the run from the authorities by the time Ant-Man and the Wasp opens in 2018. He is a criminal mastermind, after all.

Per Just Jared:

One way or another, Atlanta is currently hosting a number of high-profile Hollywood tentpoles. Not only have Infinity War and Ant-Man 2 taken up residence in the capital, but Legendary and Warner Bros. have also began shooting Godzilla: King of the Monsters ahead of its own launch in 2019.

Getting back to the MCU, though, and we know that Spider-Man: Homecoming is next in line to join Marvel’s grand cinematic universe. It’ll open tomorrow, July 7th, before Ant-Man and the Wasp takes flight on July 6th, 2018.
