During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actress noted how far filming had progressed on “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” giving fans renewed hope for the film’s progress. When asked how close production was to finish shooting, Lilly said, “We’re just a little over halfway through.”
Hopefully, with the movie’s filming process past the halfway mark, the official release date of February 17, 2023, for “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” will stay intact. Recent MCU films have suffered significant delays due to COVID-19 restrictions. While major studios like Disney have developed methods to accommodate for those challenges, it’s all too easy for minor problems to have significant impacts.
In September, the schedule for “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” was put in jeopardy when a norovirus outbreak impacted more than 50 crew members at Pinewood Studios, a facility the production was sharing with “Indiana Jones 5,” per Movieweb. Thankfully, norovirus is not usually as impactful as COVID-19, and Lilly’s recent comments to THR seem to confirm that the project worked around that scare to get back on schedule.
