Exclusive: Michael Peña Confirms He’ll Be in Ant-Man 2

The Internet sometimes can spread rumors like wildfire.

There was speculation that Michael Peña may or may not be in the upcoming Ant-Man 2 or also known as Ant-Man and the Wasp.

In a video sit-down interview with Collider, actor Michael Pena told the outlet that he hasn’t received a call from Marvel Studios in regards to reprising his role as the funny Luis in the sequel.

He told Collider, “No, No. I haven’t gotten the phone call yet. I don’t know if I’m gonna get the phone call. Who knows?”

Now, it’s unclear when the interview took place, but a lot of things can happen since that interview. In the meantime, several online news outlets are reporting that there’s a chance he may not be in the movie due to no phone call.

During the red carpet of CHIPS, LRM was attendance for the world premiere to interview the stars of the film, including Michael Peña.

We caught up with Peña and asked him briefly about his upcoming projects.

He told LRM exclusively, “So, I’m doing Extinction next, that’s a Universal movie. And then I’m doing Ant-Man, Part 2.”

There you have it. Michael Peña confirmed that he will be in Ant-Man 2 as one of his next projects. Although, he didn’t elaborate or comment on the previous reports—it was enough to put some fans at ease about his future role in the Marvel Universe.

His character, Luis, is one of the best highlights from Ant-Man, and there should be no reason to not include him in the sequel.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is scheduled to start production this summer and is slated for a July 6, 2018 release, once again starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas.

The red carpet interviews will be published later tonight from CHiPs world movie premiere at the famous TCL Chinese Theater. CHiPs stars Pena, Dax Shepard, Jessica McNamee, Adam Brody and Ryan Hansen, and it will be in theaters this Friday, March 24.
