Before the February release of the sequel, Marvel released a new trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania on Tuesday. Following Ant-Man (2015) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), this is the third standalone Ant-Man film. The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s fifth phase will also begin with this.
Here’s the trailer of the movie:
It is intended for Quantumania and its predecessor to have an important role in the 30-film MCU canon. Unlike Ant-Man and the Wasp, which established the Quantum Realm prior to Avengers: Endgame, Quantumania will introduce the series’ principal antagonist. Jonathan Majors, who plays Kang the Conqueror, made his acting debut in Loki, a Disney+ series. He would develop over the following years, culminating in the two-part Avengers movies Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
Kang has a prominent appearance in the new trailer, when he tempts Cassie, played by Kathryn Newton, and Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd, by promising to make up for lost “time” with Cassie. Scott essentially played the role of an absent parent during the Blip. Scott continues to be in a trance that Kang has put him in despite the worries of his friends.
Compared to the first two Ant-Man films, Quantumania seems to have a considerably wider scope. Peyton Reed previously told Entertainment Weekly that he had asked Marvel to give the franchise more attention this time around. It’s because he wasn’t content for it to simply be the MCU’s “palate cleanser.” The Quantum Realm appears to have been much extended in this iteration, as the trailer foreshadows. Hope van Dyne, Hank Pym, and Janet van Dyne are among the returning figures in the movie (Michelle Pfeiffer).
