Marvel Studios are of course planning a sequel to Ant-Man, the superhero movie starring Paul Rudd. The sequel is officially titled Ant-Man and the Wasp. The release date is currently set to July 6, 2018.
There’s no official plot synopsis yet. But the mid-credits scene of the first Ant-Man movie already suggested that Hope Van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lilly) would have a larger role as the Wasp thanks to that new suit revealed by her father:

The official title of Ant-Man 2 just confirms she will indeed have a more prominent role in the sequel..
A few words from Director Peyton Reed about the sequel:
It just happened to be organic for the characters of Ant-Man and Wasp, so it worked Her last line in the movie — ‘It’s about damn time’ — is very much about her specific character and arc in that movie, but it is absolutely about a larger thing. It’s about damn time: We’re going to have a fully realized, very very complicated hero in the next movie who happens to be a woman.”
