Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is not sure about making an “Ant-Man” sequel. He recently told io9 that there are too many movie "franchises" and a way needs to be figured out to keep them all going.
“The answer is, I don’t really know. We’re entering territory that’s an incredible problem to have, which is too many franchises to navigate. That’s a very, very high-class problem, and if we’re faced with that high-class problem, we will try to figure out a solution in a way that allows us to produce the movies in the way we have,” he said.
However, "Ant-Man" director Peyton Reed is fascinated by the idea of a sequel. “If we’re fortunate enough to do another 'Ant-Man' movie, I would love to do it,” he told Variety.
Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope Van Dyne, is also willing to come back. “All I know is that I had to sign up for three films, as does anybody,” she said. “And I hope they use me for two more."
“Ant-Man” opens July 17. It concerns petty thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), who must aid his mentor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) in safeguarding the Ant-Man technology. Lang plots a heist against evil with the help of superpowers that he gets from wearing the Ant-Man suit.
Other cast members include Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip "T.I." Harris, Wood Harris, Judy Greer and David Dastmalchian. Feige has produced the film and Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Adam McKay and Rudd have written the screenplay. Christophe Beck has supplied the music and Russell Carpenter is the cinematographer.
