- Development Hell: A comedy remake, to be directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans and star Eddie Murphy, was announced in 2003, but a decade later it still hadn't made it past the preproduction phase and the rights lapsed.
- Referenced by...: In Black Widow (2021), General Ross refers to Ant-Man as "The Incredible Shrinking Convict".
- What Could Have Been: Author Richard Matheson wrote a treatment for a sequel called The Fantastic Shrinking Girl, in which Louise Carey also shrinks down and joyously reunites with her now-microscopic husband, and both eventually return to normal. It was never produced, but his script was published in an anthology, Unrealized Dreams.
