Superhero duo Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne, together with Hope’s parents Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, find 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 was possible.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been playing with the concept of a multiverse for some time now, through films like “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” Now, that concept seems primed to explode across the MCU in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” the third installment in the “Ant-Man” series of films that will reunite original stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
This time around, Scott Lang and his allies –- along with Kathryn Newton as an adult version of Scott’s daughter, Cassie -– will team up to face Kang the Conqueror, a new multiversal, time-traveling villain played by “Lovecraft Country” star Jonathan Majors. In the first trailer for the film, we learned that Kang emerges as a major player in the Quantum Realm and offers to help Scott and his family escape that strange dimension … for a price. It’s clearly a showcase for Majors and a stage-setter for the big things for Kang still to come in the MCU.
There are a lot of mysteries still surrounding the film, but we do know our heroes will be spending a lot of time in the Quantum Realm, where they’ll run into a character played by Bill Murray. One of Marvel’s weirdest villains — the evil, oversized head M.O.D.O.K. — will also be showing up. We’ll find out what happens next when “Quantumania” hits theaters on February 17, 2023.
