“The Legacy of Ant-Man” Special Looks Reveals Glimpse at “Quantumania”
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania officially kicks off Marvel’s Phase 5. Now, thanks to a special look at the legacy of Ant-Man revealed at Brazil’s Comic-Con, we’ve got fresh footage of the microscopic mayhem coming our way in Quantumania.
Quantumania will find Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), his daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton), Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) all heading into the Quantum Realm. It’s a dangerous journey made even more so by the presence of Kang the Conquerer (Jonathan Majors), arguably the biggest, most consequential new villain in the Marvel pantheon. A version of Kang was introduced in Loki when the Sacred Timeline was fractured into the multiverse of possibilities we’re now living in. In that Marvel series, Kang was playful but all-powerful. In Phase 5, he’ll be the gravest threat the varied superheroes have faced since Thanos.
How important is Kang? As the first villain introduced in Phase 5, he’s going to be such a force that the fifth Avengers movie has his name in the title—Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. What’s more, both Quantumania and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty are written by screenwriter Jeff Loveness, so the connection between the two films, and Kang’s importance, can’t be overstated.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania also features Randall Park returning to the MCU as Jimmy Woo and newcomers to the universe William Jackson Harper and Bill Murray. Peyton Reed returns to direct.
Check out the special look below at Ant-Man’s legacy, which includes glimpses of what’s to come. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania arrives on February 17, 2023.
