A new poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania wrote in a very strange way. a new logo design through a photo of the production chair that was shot at the shooting location.
Almost the entire ensemble from Ant-Man and the Wasp will be returning for Quantumania, including the more apparent returns of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Evangeline Lily as Hope Pym. Michael Douglas will reprise his part as Hank Pym, while Michelle Pfeiffer will reprise her role as Janet Van Dyne, who will presumably have a greater role this time around. Kathryn Newton will replace Abby Ryder Fortson and Emma Fuhrmann, who played Cassie Lang in the previous Ant-Man flicks and Avengers: Endgame, respectively. Jonathan Majors, the only other confirmed cast member, is likely to have a significant impact on the MCU going forward.
The most interesting aspect of Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania is its villain, not the plot or heroes. In September 2020, fans heard that Jonathan Majors had been cast in a “lead role” for the film, although the position remained undisclosed. Majors’ part was rumored to be that of Kang the Conqueror, a time-traveling villain notorious for having several forms of himself in the original Marvel comics.
Majors first appears in the Loki finale, confirming the premise. As Loki and Sylvie near the conclusion of their voyage, Majors portrayed another version of Kang known as He Who Remains, who only cites his title as “conqueror” momentarily before assuming the job of guardian of the fabled multiverse. Majors was able to build a dark layer beneath the surface, something he’ll surely need to bring to Kang in Quantumania, where Loki’s He Who Remains was relatively serene in his manner. The most pressing concern, though, is which incarnation of Kang the Conqueror will be shown in Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania.
The plot of Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania is being kept a secret for the time being, but given the actors’ return and the film’s position in the MCU, there are a few possibilities. As of yet, Quantumania is the only other MCU film in which Kang has been confirmed to appear. It’s probable that the film may follow in the footsteps of Guardians of the Galaxy in providing a more detailed introduction to Thanos, the villain who will be causing difficulties for Marvel’s next generation of heroes.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is currently will hit the theaters on February 17, 2023.
