During a packed MCU trailer, Marvel Studios revealed the film will premiere on February 17, 2023.
This slots it between the newly-titled The Marvels on November 11, 2022 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on May 5, 2023.
Pfeiffer and Douglas had previously indicated the film would be released in 2022. It will be part of Phase Four of the MCU.
Filming on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is expected to begin sometime this month and stretch into September, though it remains to be seen if that will be changed when considering its 2023 release.
Stars Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly both said Ant-Man 3 is gearing to shoot this summer, and that’s exactly what’s happening.

‘Ant-Man 3’ Trailer
Not yet, but if the release date remains as is , expect to get a first glimpse at the new film by the end of the year.
T.I., who appeared in the first two “Ant-Man” films as part of Paul Rudd’s crew, was never slated to return to the third film.
This update on the MCU movie comes after T.I. and his wife, Tiny Harris, have been accused of sexual abuse and drugging women for more than a decade, with T.I. and Harris’ legal counsel describing these claims as “unsubstantiated and baseless.”
However, it’s unclear if T.I.’s exclusion from Ant-Man 3 is in response to these accusations or if this was already in the cards.
‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is coming out on February 17, 2023.
