Peyton Reed will return to his role behind the camera for the Ant-Man series, signing on to helm the planned third film. THR reports that Reed, who directed Ant-Man as well as Ant-Man and the Wasp, has signed on to shoot the third, as-yet-unnamed film.

According to the site, plans are to shoot the film in late 2020 or early 2021, with a 2021 release planned. There are two dates set for untitled Marvel Cinematic Universe films that year, February 18th and July 29th.

While not on the level of Avengers or Iron Man movies, the the first two films were big hits for Marvel and have earned a combined $1.141 billion worldwide between them on a combined production budget of $271.3 million plus marketing.
