The future of Marvel Cinematic Universe looks bigger and better. After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios revealed their plans for MCU Phase 4 and it involves several old and new superheroes. From Loki, Black Widow and Thor: Love and Thunder to The Eternals and Blade, there are some exciting TV series and movies to look forward to. However, a new report is doing the rounds that the threequel of a big-screen franchise could be getting cancelled and heading to the small screen instead.
According to a Cosmic Book News report, rumours are doing the rounds suggesting that Paul Rudd’s superhero might not be seen in a theatre near you. Instead, he would be standing on your palm. The word on the street suggests Marvel Studios isn’t working on a third Ant-Man movie. Instead, it will be developing a Disney Plus show on the superhero. The report suggests that the TV series will be high budgeted and feature Michael Pena’s Luis. The report also states that the Ant-Man 3 couldn’t be happening because Kevin Feige also “wants to pursue new genres with Shang-Chi and Blade” while exploring Fox IPs.
Another reason, that plays in the favour of Ant-Man, could be that the series would give the superhero a bigger scale to spread its wings. Instead of packing it all in within two hours, Ant-Man would have a longer duration to explore storylines on Disney Plus. Having said that, there has been no announcement from Marvel Studios so we would suggest you treat the information as a mere rumour.
