LOS ANGELES — Marvel is going microscopic again. 'Ant-Man' is getting the sequel treatment with 'Ant-Man and the Wasp,' set for release on July 6, 2018, the studio announced on Thursday.

Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly portrayed the leads in the first film which earned $409.8 million worldwide. The announcement didn't specify whether the actors would reprise their roles, but most Marvel actors are signed up for multi-year contracts.

This film will mark the first time a Marvel movie will include the name of a female character in a title. The studio has received criticism in the past for its dearth of female characters. The next will be Captain Marvel, which has been pushed to March of 2019.
