Director Peyton Reed reminds that Hope van Dyne a.k.a.the Wasp, portrayed by the actress, holds 'a very, very important part' in the partnership with Scott Lang a.k.a. Ant-Man.

AceShowbiz - Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will receive equal billing for "Ant-Man 3".

The stars are set to front the forthcoming movie as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne /Wasp, respectively, with director Peyton Reed - who helmed 2018's "Ant-Man and the Wasp" and will return for the new film.

Discussing the two in a chat with Yahoo Entertainment, Peyton insists, "They're a partnership, and she's a very, very important part of that. And that was a very gratifying thing, I guess technically we were the first Marvel movie with a female hero in the title of the movie."

"Finding that balance in that movie, that's very important to me because that's very much a men's playing field, historically. But that's really, really changing now in a great way," Peyton shares of the preparations for "Ant-Man 3".

Teasing the next instalment of the franchise, which was penned by "Rick and Morty" writer Jeff Loveness and is set for a 2022 release, he adds, "We have (cracked the story). Nothing is official yet, but we're quietly working. We're working through the pandemic."
