    Marvel has some big news, including some about a tiny superhero: An "Ant-Man" sequel is coming, while release dates for two anticipated new Marvel films have been moved again.

    One year ago, the studio announced its film lineup for the next five years. The company announced some changes to its Phase 3 movie schedule in February and revealed more on Thursday.

    Following the success of "Ant-Man," which made more than $409 million worldwide, Marvel will release "Ant-Man and the Wasp," the studio's first film named after its heroine, on July 6, 2018. The company did not specify whether or not Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will reprise their roles as Ant-Man/Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne/The Wasp in the sequel.

    However, you will definitely get to see Rudd as Ant-Man again in "Captain America: Civil War" next year. In the film, you'll also get to see the first glimpse of Tom Holland as Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, before Marvel releases a new standalone reboot about the famed web slinger.
