The other day it was revealed by Charles Murphy that Ant-Man 3 could be heading to England to shoot a significant portion of the third installment officially being directed by Peyton Reed at Pinewood Studios UK.
I can back up the information myself and can add that they’ll be shooting secondary scenes in California for the San Francisco portions of the sequel if there are many of those expected.
I can confirm that ANT-MAN 3 will be shooting at Pinewood UK in early 2021.
Mainly, because Disney+ stuff will be using Atlanta.
Production will indeed return to California though for San Francisco scenes. pic.twitter.com/2rHBauBheN

Black Widow and Eternals have recently shot at the facility with the next big Marvel production heading to Pinewood in 2020 being Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizebeth Olsen.
Production on the Doctor Strange sequel isn’t likely to begin until the spring/summer.
Hank Pym actor Michael Douglas has suggested in a recent interview that production on Ant-Man 3 could begin as early as January 2021, which could make sense as we’ve seen Marvel productions kick-off in that month in the past.
There is also a good chance that Ant-Man 3 might not begin shooting until the fall of 2021.
We can expect the return of Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Emma Fuhrmann as the older version of Cassie Lang.
Details about the project are scarce given that it doesn’t shoot for over a year but rumblings have suggested that the Young Avengers might be introduced, however, that has yet to be confirmed or made official. Only a rumor for the time being.
Seeing Marvel Studios move production from Atlanta to England is sort of a big deal given that we’re likely not going to see many Marvel films shoot in Georgia next year (outside of a handful of pick-up shots/reshoots/button scenes).
The last time a film was shot in Atlanta was for a reshoot (possibly a button scene) for Black Widow featuring William Hurt’s Thunderbolt Ross, leading many to believe it could have a connection to The Thunderbolts or even The Falcon & Winter Soldier series.
Filming on the movies has mainly been relegated to Pinewood Studios UK and Fox Studios Australia (Shang-Chi/Thor: Love & Thunder) with the Disney+ shows taking over the production space in the Atlanta area which has been previously used for the feature films.
I feel like we might be getting announcements concerning the 2022-2023 release lineup at San Diego Comic-Con 2020 in July, if not sooner.
An official release date has yet to be announced for Ant-Man 3 but there is a good shot that it’ll end up grabbing the February 18th, 2022 spot if it shoots as early as expected.
