Dan Levy has heard those rumors about him being in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and he has some bad news for fans. Filming on Ant-Man 3 is in progress in London, and according to star Evangeline Lilly, the film is simply over halfway through production. Ant-Man 3 was originally planned for release in February 2023, yet following Marvel’s new 2022-2023 timetable change, it moved to July of that same year. Peyton Reed is back once more as director, and Paul Rudd stars alongside Lilly, making this his fifth MCU appearance overall.
While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Levy finally got the chance to address these rumors. Kimmel took out the photo of Levy and Rudd, and Levy immediately launched into an interesting summary of what happened after the image was taken. He admitted that it was taken while he was in London and had dinner with Rudd and his family, and he’s very grateful to have an image with him. Notwithstanding, there are a few downsides, as Levy then, at that point, explained:
The downside of having dinner with Paul Rudd is that the internet, in this case, went wild with a conversation that included: Paul Rudd looks such a ton more youthful than Dan Levy, they should be dearest companions, and Dan is in talks to be in Ant-Man. And the answer is: I want to be dearest companions with him, false, not in Ant-Man, and he also looks a lot more youthful than me. So it’s kind of a predicament, than the fact that you’re having dinner with Paul Rudd, which is a win-win.
Presently, some may rush to point out that Marvel actors are known for lying about the ventures they are involved in, so Levy could be doing the same. Notwithstanding, trusting Levy’s words, it appears to be almost certain that this was a case of fans ideally jumping to conclusions and misunderstanding the meaning behind their photo. On the off chance that it helps, another supposed Ant-Man 3 addition, Bill Murray, as of late confirmed he is in fact in the film, so however Levy doesn’t appear to join the MCU right now, fans will get a Ghostbuster out of this one.
Ant-Man 3 already features an exciting cast that includes Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, Corey Stoll, and Jonathan Majors. The film is being advertised as the greatest installment yet in the Ant-Man franchise, and perhaps even awesome. Quite a bit of it actually remains a secret, yet as production continues, perhaps more details will arise soon. After all, it’s a long wait to 2023, so fans deserve some news to tide them over.
