During a recent interview with Coming Soon, Paul Rudd discussed Ant-Man’s increased role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he is slated to appear in at least two upcoming Marvel movies: Captain America: Civil War (May 6) Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 6, 2018).
On his growing role: “I know that when I signed up for it that there was always the potential that they’d do another one or it would tie in in some way, but specifically, I wasn’t aware and I’m still not totally aware of how that’s the case.We are doing a second one, so those meetings are starting to be scheduled and underway as far as what it’s going to be. We’ll start writing it soon.”
On working the scheduling with Marvel: “It’s been very easy. Marvel’s been great, as far as if I have something else and they’ll work around it. It’s not like I’m working on a series which might be a little trickier as far as schedule. I worked on ‘Civil War’ and I didn’t really work on it for very long, but as far as ‘Ant-Man 2,’ I already know when that’s going to go, so you just kind of plan accordingly. If anything comes along that I can film before or after and it works out time-wise and it makes sense, Marvel’s been supportive.”
