Marvel’s Phase Three is only seven months away from starting, but the studio is still making changes to their upcoming slate of films. The Phase Three movies were first announced almost this time last year, ranging from Captain America: Civil War to Inhumans. Then, when Marvel and Sony joined forces to work on Spider-Man together, certain movies had to be delayed in order to put the spotlight on Peter Parker. Now there’s another adjustment that’s being made, and it involves a certain shrinking superhero.

It was announced today that Ant-Man and The Wasp will arrive in theaters in 2018, three years after Ant-Man’s release. In order to accommodate the crimefighting duo, this has resulted in even more scheduling changes for Marvel’s later solo movies, which some may like and other won’t. Take a look at the biggest changes we can expect from Phase Three starting in 2018 and even some hints about what’s in store after 2019.

It may not have set any big records at the box office, but Ant-Man was a critical and commercial success this past summer. So it’s no surprise that Marvel wanted to get a sequel out as soon as possible. However, rather than simply have Paul Rudd playing Scott Lang as the main lead again, he’ll costar alongside Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne in Ant-Man and The Wasp on July 6, 2018. The Ant-Man mid-credits showed Hank Pym giving a new Wasp suit to his daughter, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said they had plans for her in the future. With this news, now we’ll get to see one of Marvel’s most famous duos in action on the big screen. On a side note, it will be interesting to see how their movie will impact the rest of the MCU given it’s happening right after Avengers: Infinity War Part I. Will they take part in the complete Infinity War at all, or will they sit out Part I, have their adventure and then possibly tag in during Part II? We’re leaning towards the latter.
