It's no longer surprising when a famous TV or film personality joins social media. After all, it's a free-for-all platform that if used strategically, help promote their projects, at oftentimes zero cost. Take for example "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" writer and director James Gunn, who is a joy to follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as he often shares exclusive behind the scenes photos and personal anecdotes about his writing process, or anything related to production.

There is no doubt that today's generation is social media savvy, and studios have banked on this to get people talking about their latest films. One Marvel director has recently joined Instagram, and this time it's "Ant-Man and the Wasp" helmer, Peyton Reed. Of course, his first post is related to the film, which is set to be released about a year from now.

Peyton Reed posts first Instagram photo

In "Ant-Man and the Wasp" director Peyton Reed's first Instagram post, he shared a photo of the Wasp seemingly saving Ant-Man from a tricky situation.

Of course, the photo is of the comic versions of the characters, but may be indicative of what role Evangeline Lily's Hope Van Dyne will play in the upcoming film. Reed captioned the photo, "Stay tuned. #antmanandthewasp," which may also imply that he will be regularly updating his Instagram account with insider info on the upcoming film.

Upcoming film set to begin production in Atlanta

As per Screenrant, "Ant-Man and the Wasp" is set to begin filming in a few weeks, so it's most likely that director Peyton Reed will be sharing tidbits from right inside the bull pin.

Earlier this month, Variety exclusively reported that "Black Mirror" and "Game of Thrones" actress Hannah John-Kamen is the latest addition to the cast, but did not disclose what role she would possibly play. She may play the original Wasp, who is mother to Evangeline Lily's Hope Van Dyne. While John-Kamen may be too young at 27 years of age to play the original Wasp, she may be playing the role in flashbacks to when the original Wasp was still alive.

Another interesting story to look forward to in the film is how the original Wasp went sub-atomic (and may possibly be still alive). It is still unclear whether other Avengers will make an appearance in next year's outing, but so far, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michael Peña, T.I., and David Dastmalchian are all returning to reprise their roles.

"Ant-Man and the Wasp" will open in theaters on July 6, 2018.
