Marvel's tiniest hero will tap into a new braintrust for Ant-Man and the Wasp.
While Adam McKay and Paul Rudd revamped Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish's Ant-Man script following Wright's departure as director, Deadline has announced that the sequel will pull from the creative minds of Rudd, Andrew Barrer, and Gabriel Ferrari.
Barrer and Ferrari aren't entirely new to the Marvel Cinematic Universe - the pair donated un-credited time to the original Ant-Man script. Once McKay helps break the story, however, the entire script will be in the trio's hands.
The writers room will get down to brass tacks once the holiday season is through.
"We're really going to start in earnest in January on the writing," director Peyton Reed told Comic Book Resources. "But we obviously have tons of notes -- things that we set up in the first movie -- and it's going to be fun to actually really hit the ground and start developing and writing the movie."
Rudd's pint-sized hero will briefly return this May in Captain America: Civil War, but fans are really looking forward to the titular team up promised for the 2018 film. Hope van Dyne is ready to suit up as The Wasp, and Reed promises her work with Scott Lange will result in "a romantic partnership and a heroic partnership."
Ant-Man and the Wasp will hit theaters on July 6, 2018.
