The smallest hero of Marvel is heading back to the big screen. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the next movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe you will see in theatres in February.
Jonathan Majors and Paul Rudd face off as Ant-Man and friends see the new baddie Kang in the next Marvel Universe Cinematic film. Here are all the updates that you must know.
The Wasp is the third solo outing for Paul Rudd’s size hero Scott Lang following the 2018 Ant-Man and the Wasp and Ant-Man 2015. It is the 31st MCU movie overall, but the vital thing is the first installment in the Phase 5 MCUs. It means that the new flick launches a few of the major villains and paves the way for major transformations in the Marvel series film.
The current teaser shows a high-stakes battle between the MCU and Scott’s new major antagonist. In this blog, we will discuss everything about Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumani, including cast, trailer, release date, and cast.
Ant-Man 3 cast?
The director of Ant-Man three is Peyton Reed, who has recruited Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, whose parent’s role is played by Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer.
David Dastmalchian has a comeback in Ant-Man 3, and he might be playing a different role than he did in the first two ant-man movies. Lang’s daughter role of Cassie, is played by Kathryn Newton, star of Pokemon, Freak, Big Little Lies, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and Detective Pikachu.
Also, Jonathan Majors has an appearance in the final episode of the Disney and Marvel series Loke who plays the Villainous Kang. Starring are Katy O’Brien, William Jackson Harper, and Bill Murray. Also, Bill Murray.
Who’s the bad guy?
Jonathan Majors has already appeared as Kang, but there is a different version of the role. The Kang we have seen in Loki was a being named He-Who-Remains, who has kept the Universe from splitting into infinite parallel timelines called the Multiverse. The interference of Loki has seen the return of these parallel Universe, and we have seen the consequence in Doctor Strange in the Madness of Multiverse.
The new movie also shows the first appearance of the MCU for MODOK, a comic role that goes by the name called Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. Cyborg’s brain is previously seen in the Hulu comedy, voiced by Patton Oswalt, animated series, and in the Avengers game of 2020. In Ant-man, the MODOK role is played by Corey Stoll, who has previously played the bad guy Yellowjacket in the first movie, Ant-Man.
It is not clear how Kang or MODOK wound up in the realm of Quantum, but it seems like this is just the beginning of the MCU’s new big bad. The role of who might become Kang was seen first in the Marvel comic Fantastic four in 1963, developed by Stan Lee, who is a writer, and Jack Kirby, who is an artist.
From the start, a criminal from the far future who has traveled back in time and conquered ancient Egypt was later seen in comics in which he was also named Kang the Conqueror. His unchecked traveling time has built several different forms of the role, and in the post of Multiverse universe 5 MCU films, we are also going to see him in the upcoming films.
When will Ant-Man be released?
Ant-Man and the Wasp 3 will be seen in theaters on February 17, Friday. The Wasp may be the first major blockbuster to strike cinemas following the smash strike success of Avatar: The Way of Water, that is premiered in December and is going to be strong at box offices around the world.
Ant-Man and The Wasp Quantumania plot
The synopsis for the film reads: Hope Van Dyne and Scott Lang, along with Janet van Dyne and Hank Pym, are Hope’s parents who go on a new adventure to discover the Quantum Realm.
Nothing else is known about the adventure, why they are venturing into the Realm of Quantum, or what the purpose is and how they wound encounter MODOK and Kang in the realm of Quantum. Also, the current teaser did tease an unsteady alliance between Scott Lang and Kang. One that sees Lang is trying to make up for lost time with daughter during the Snap but one that shifts sour amid Kang’s unquenchable thirst for power.
In a current interview with Entertainment Tonight, actress Kathryn Newton hinted at what people may expect from Cassie Lang and how the role has changed from reuniting with her father after the Avengers: Endgame event.
She is trying to learn how to be a good individual and you understand making a lot of mistakes. She is a kind of a mess, and you are going to see that in the movie but with a good heart.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer
The first teaser of the film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be released in October, which opens a more familiar and comedic tone to the movie. Now, the second teaser was released in January, which was a darker affair that emphasized the adventure and the drama.
What’s next for the MCU?
We are aware that Kang is going to be a major antagonist like Thanos before him as Phase five is building to a film in 2025 called Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. There is a complete list of the rest of phase 5, from Ant-Man to the next coming years of theatrical films and streaming series.
