There's no doubt about it, Ant-Man was Marvel's funniest film to date. Its talented cast is what made the film so enjoyable. The one actor who inarguably stole the show was Michael Peña, who played Luis.

An original character conceived specifically for the big screen, Luis was introduced into the MCU as the former cellmate and best friend of Scott Lang. A professional criminal, but also not exactly the smartest guy around, what Luis lacks in morals and intelligence he makes up for with his steadfastness and perseverance.

He is also the guy with all of the connections, as in the film he’s the one responsible for Scott meeting Hank Pym and coming face to face with Sam Wilson, a.k.a. The Falcon.

Ant-Man And The Wasp was officially confirmed to be in development last October, accompanied by the news that Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly would be returning for the follow-up. This was obvious as they are the titular characters and were the only actors, at that time, on the list for the sequel. Using common sense, it was safe to assume they wouldn’t be the only two stars who would be coming back to reprise their roles.

In an interview with CinemaBlend at SxSW, Peña shed some light on his involvement in the film's sequel:

"I am. I am. Just because they announced it, that they’re doing a sequel. As far as I’m concerned I think I’m back! Unless you know something that I don’t know [laughs]."

Not really a surprise, considering that Peña signed a contract with Marvel for three films. It’s definitely exciting that he'll be back for more action as well. Ant-Man And The Wasp is slated for a release July 6, 2018.
