It has been two years since Ant-Man’s appearance in Avengers Endgame and three years since an original Ant-Man movie was made. The comical thief-turned-superhero has been a great addition to the MCU. He will be making an appearance on a zombie-filled episode in the next saga. Continue reading Ant-Man And The Wasp Quantumania.
Production started in July 2021 in Buckinghamshire (England) and will continue in Atlanta, San Francisco, and San Francisco. It is expected to be completed sometime in 2022. Although the third Ant-Man appearance is still two years away, there is still plenty of information that fans can hold on to while they wait. This is all we know so far about Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.
The Minds Behind the Mayhem
Peyton Reed returns to the MCU for the third time to direct Quantumania. Reed was previously the director of Ant-Man, and also directed the Bring it On cheerleading films. Jim Carrey-led Yes Man was Reed’s first film. Quantumania’s author is younger than its director. After more than a decade in television, this is Jeff Loveness’s first film. Loveness, who has been working on the series for two years, won an Emmy recently for his work in Rick & Morty. Fans won’t need to worry about Quantumania lagging behind other Ant-Man films.
Quantumania: Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania will bring back nearly all of the cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp. This includes the obvious return of Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily as Hope Pym. Both Pym parents will return, with Michael Douglas playing Hank Pym and Michelle Pfeiffer playing Janet Van Dyne. This will hopefully give them a bigger role. Kathryn Newton will play Cassie Lang’s role instead of Abby Ryder Fortson and Emma Fuhrmann. They were both in previous Ant-Man films, as well as Avengers Endgame. Jonathan Majors is the only confirmed cast member who will likely make a difference in the MCU’s future.
Phase Four of the Villain Shaping
The best news about Ant-Man And The Wasp is Quantumania. It’s not the storyline or its heroes that is most exciting, but its villain. Fans were informed that Jonathan Majors was selected to play the “lead” role in the film’s September 2020 release. However, the identity of the part remains a mystery. Many speculated that Majors was Kang the Conqueror in the film, a time-traveling villain from the original Marvel comics.
Majors confirmed this theory in July 2021’s finale of Loki. Majors played He Who Remains as an alternate Kang, who briefly refers to his title of “conqueror” but takes over the role as gatekeeper of the multiverse when Sylvie and Loki reach the end. While Loki’s The One Who Remains seemed calm, Majors created a dark underside to his character, something that he will definitely have to show Kang in Quantumania. But the biggest question is: What version of Kang the Conqueror will viewers see in Ant-Man And The Wasp? Quantumania?
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania’s plot remains secretive at the moment. However, there are some possibilities based on its return to the MCU lineup and the actor’s involvement. Quantumania is currently the only MCU film in which Kang has been confirmed to appear. The film may do for Thanos what Guardians of the Galaxy did. It will give a more detailed introduction to the villain who will cause problems for Marvel’s next group of heroes.
Michelle Pfeiffer returns as Janet Van Dyne. This brings up some theories. Perhaps Ant-Man and The Wasp will be exploring the Quantum Realm together with Janet. Because she has been trapped there for over 30 years, Janet is the resident expert on the dimension. Hank Pym was not far behind her. With a title such as Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, the film will spend a lot of time in the Quantum Realm. This area was not explored in depth by the previous Ant-Man entries. The audience will learn more about Quantum Realm and how it is framed by multiverse drama. This will be explored in Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness, released nearly a year ahead of Quantumania.
