We have slightly over a month before MCU Phase 5 begins, with the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Unlike the previous two Ant-Man films, this one won’t be just a comedic “palette cleanser” after a big MCU event. It will be the big MCU event. It properly introduces the villainous Kang (Jonathan Majors), setting the stage for everything in the Multiverse Saga. All culminating in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars. And we now have our latest trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and it’s a big one.
This tease of Peyton Reed’s third installment in the saga of Scott Lang reveals much more in terms of the actual plot. You can watch the full trailer from Marvel Studios right here:
The one thing Scott Lang wants most in this world is time. He wishes so much to get back the five years he lost with his daughter after Thanos’ snap. And it sounds like he might just listen to Kang’s tempting offer when the superpowered villain promises he can give it back to him. But, of course, he’ll discover it’s not wise to make deals with the devils.
A new synopsis also shares more about the movie ahead:
Super-Hero partners Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Together, with Hope’s parents Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Scott’s daughter Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton), the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought possible. Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige, p.g.a. and Stephen Broussard, p.g.a., “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” also stars Jonathan Majors as Kang, David Dastmalchian as Veb, Katy O’Brian as Jentorra, William Jackson Harper as Quaz and Bill Murray as Lord Krylar.
Interestingly, David Dastmalchian won’t return in his previous Ant-Man role of Kurt, but instead in the role of “Veb.” Meanwhile, Bill Murray will play the mysterious Lord Krylar, a character who only appears briefly in Marvel’s comics.
This Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer already looks bigger (and dare we say, weirder) than either of the two previous films. In both Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp, our visits to the Quantum Realm were fairly limited and brief. This time, we explore this section of reality way more in-depth than ever before. And they’ve filled it with unusual residents, including the big screen debut of M.O.D.O.K. Not to mention thousands of Ant-Mans are bubbling up all around us.
We also have a couple of new posters for Quantumania, which show off our three main characters and our big bad.
We’ve got Paul Rudd as our titular hero (in his full mask), Evangeline Lilly in her Wasp costume, and Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton) in her own superhero suit. Also looming above them all is Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror himself. We see what looks like Chronopolis, the city that exists outside of time, which in the MCU will be located within the Quantum Realm, and so much more. Between the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania posters and trailer, we say… Bring on the microscopic, epic fun.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will release on February 17, 2023.
