Friday, it was announced that writer Jeff Loveness signed on to pen the script for Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man 3. Now, according to Geeks WorldWide, Paul Rudd wrote an early script for the film that featured M.O.D.O.K., and Marvel is reportedly considering including the Young Avengers in the movie.
It has been rumored that Marvel Studios is looking to introduce M.O.D.O.K. in an upcoming project, and it seems an early draft of Ant-Man 3 included him. Rudd, who has starred in both films, received a screenplay credit on the first film and writing credit on the second. But it seems he wrote an early draft for the upcoming sequel that featured the M.O.D.O.K.
Given that Loveness has signed on to pen the new script for the film, it remains uncertain if any of Rudd’s pitch will make its way into the final draft.
Additionally, it appears that Marvel Studios is looking to include the Young Avengers in Ant-Man 3. It was rumored that Marvel was looking to introduce the Fantastic Four in the movie but that no longer seems to be the case.
It is not yet confirmed which characters will be members of the Young Avengers, but it seems likely Cassie Lang, Kate Bishop, Wiccan, Speed, and Hulkling will be included. With Cassie now a teenager thanks to Avengers: Endgame, having her join the fight as a young superhero is to be expected.
Marvel Studios announced delays for its Phase 4 slate of films, so this could result in changes to the current trajectory of Ant-Man 3 and other films in early development. For now, though, fans will have to speculate exactly what Marvel will introduce next.
