Nice time at the beach? Probably in a different universe.

So far, only one MCU solo franchise has had four installments, and that is, of course, Thor. But other superheroes have also come close to telling their four-part stories.

With the recent premiere of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Scott Lang has joined these ranks. And Paul Rudd already knows what he wants to see in Ant-Man 4 if he ever gets to make it.

With its exhilarating otherworldly adventure and proper introduction of the MCU's most formidable villain, Kang the Conqueror, many fans believe Quantumania is the most thrilling installment in the Ant-Man franchise.

The stakes have definitely been raised. So it's hard to imagine how the fourth film can keep the bar high and not repeat the fate of the Thor franchise, which saw its ratings plummet after the fourth installment.

Paul Rudd, who portrays Scott Lang, agrees that it will probably be impossible to go any bigger. So the actor thinks that Ant-Man 4 should take things down a notch. In his interview with Yahoo UK, he even shared his idea for the potential plot, which involves less action and more quiet family time between Scoot and his daughter Cassie:

"Maybe a nice quiet road movie. Just Scott and Cassie taking in a coastal city and just spending time [together]. Maybe like The Trip with [Steve] Coogan and just those where there's no threat."

Rudd added that even though Marvel would probably refuse to make such a light-hearted movie, it would definitely be nice to make it because his character deserves some quiet time and family bonding.

It's easy to forget that without his costume, Scott Lang actually has no built-in superpowers. And the things he has been through during the Infinity Saga and the Multiverse Saga are no picnic for a normal person.

He has already faced two of the MCU's biggest baddies, Thanos and Kang, for God's sake. Give the guy a break!

"Just let him sit on a beach somewhere. How much abuse can he take? How much punishment?" Rudd said.

While a beach vacation might sound good to Scott, there is no way MCU audiences will enjoy Ant-Man hanging up his costume and forgetting about the global threat. So Paul's dream will probably never come true.
