ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA Star Paul Rudd Says He Also Has "No Idea" About Future Solo Movie ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA Star Paul Rudd Says He Also Has "No Idea" About Future Solo Movie

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire star Paul Rudd has now commented on potentially returning as Scott Lang in an Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania follow-up, and he doesn’t seem confident about it happening.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania was released to middling reviews and a so-so $476 million box office haul. It was the latest in a series of recent disappointments for Marvel Studios and, with Disney looking to increase profits, taking a gamble on a fourth solo outing seems doubtful. 

Earlier this weekend, we shared comments from Paul Rudd which saw the actor admit he doesn't know when he'll play Ant-Man again. Now, he's similarly shrugged off a question about whether Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania will ever get a sequel. 

"I have no idea," he tells The Hollywood Reporter"I don't know, yeah...that's not for me to answer. You'd have to go to Kevin Feige and those, I guess."

Rudd doesn't appear overly enthused to discuss Scott Lamg's MCU future, though that could be put down to the Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire star doing the rounds to promote a second blockbuster which has drawn negative reviews (and will likely struggle at the box office).

The last Ant-Man movie failing likely hit him hard, anyway, but we'd like to think he remains keen to reprise this role in the upcoming Avengers movies (which will quite possibly end the character's story in the MCU).

Check out Rudd's remarks in the X post below.

Talking when Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania was released, Rudd opened up on what Jonathan Majors - who has since been fired by Marvel Studios - brought to the table as Kang the Conqueror. 

"Jonathan and the way he plays him, he's such a great actor and he had his own kind of rhythm and everything felt a little like he was in control, he was rooted and so it felt different, the shooting of the whole thing felt different and it was a little bit off balance because it's this kind of constant back and forth between Scott and Kang."

"There was a real charged cool feeling when we got to act our scenes together," he added. "I was like, 'I can't imagine any other person playing this part, he's crushing it.'"

It was also put to Rudd at the time that he could lead the next Avengers movies as the hero who has crossed paths with Kang and survived.

"Well, you know, you said it, not me. But it's pretty cool that Ant Man's the one that's going to face off against Kang and kickstart this thing," the actor teased. "It was very exciting to know that we were the ones chosen to introduce this guy and I know how big of a part he's going to play moving forward."

That was likely the case once upon a time (especially as Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania writer Jeff Loveness was once tapped to pen Avengers: The Kang Dynasty), but with Kang expected to take a backseat in the Multiverse Saga, who knows what the plan is now.

Wild world that speculation about a potential Ant Man 4 is considered news.
xfan320 - 3/24/2024, 8:53 AM
Scot/Ant Man would work best with SHANG CHI as a supporting character, to replace AWKWAFINA as comedic relief. He could be the Avenger that helps Shang Chi get acquainted to the team and then they inadvertently team up to stop a greater spiritual/magical/cosmic threat before setting the stage for Avengers Secret Wars...

Send me my check, Feige.
xfan320 - 3/24/2024, 8:55 AM
@xfan320 - ànd if they want a billion dollar box office. Throw in an awesome Hawkeye/Jeremy Renner cameo where he's in the Avengers facility training with Kate and Kamala, and the other New Avengers getting them prepped for field work
xfan320 - 3/24/2024, 8:59 AM
@xfan320 - oh and Shang Chi's sister and the army of the Ten Rings should appear in the final battle to help. Normal people should get to be more proactive next to the avengers

@Evansly - Oh this is about the exta comments on Jonathan Majors then make that the headline

3 movies in between the GotG trilogy. I'd say that's more than enough.

This was an article already, goddamn

Ant-Man 4 is never going to happen.
Batmangina - 3/24/2024, 9:59 AM
The fact that Ant-Man 4 happening is a question is the PERFECT illustration of how far and how fast the MCU has fallen.

10 year old me would have laughed at the idea of Ant-Man ONE.

It seems like I just read this story. (Reads byline). Oh, okay.
PartyKiller - 3/24/2024, 10:13 AM
Crazy that Feige was making Ant-Man movies and never made Iron Man 4, 5, 6.

Double dip Josh lol

Change the title to whom the article is mostly about next time, and people won't mention the article from yesterday lol

I liked Quantumania for what it was and believe it's best not to do a 4th.
They brought Scott and Hope to a good place, might as well keep him as a support from there and continue with the legacy aspect.
I know not everyone is big on legacy stuff but this is the one that it most fluidly fits to go wit based on how they've told their stories.

I personally would have only made one maybe two Ant-Man movies,so you can introduce Wasp in the sequel.

No need for any more.
CaptainCheese - 3/24/2024, 12:45 PM
He's fine as a supporting character. No need for solo films. It's over.

I hope Ghostbusters does ok at the BO. I can’t see it in theaters for another couple weeks, but I’ve streamed half of it and it’s fun. Feels like an extended episode of the old cartoon (which is 🆒)
