Everything you need to know about ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’
Marvel Studios have just released the trailer for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ and as Disney and Marvel are within our licencing portfolio, we thought we would let you know a little about the film and what we spotted in the new trailer.
In the film, which officially kicks off Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Super-Hero partners Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Together, with Hope’s parents Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, 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 was possible. Jonathan Majors joins the adventure as Kang.
Antman Still Leads a Normal Life
Despite having helped to save the world a couple of times now, Scott still leads a humble life in New York. He strolls down the streets in his usual clothes, and people ask him for autographs. Unfortunately, this means that the Avenger is still broke and mostly anonymous, just like he was in Avengers: Endgame when Smart Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) tried to convince some kids to take a picture with Ant-Man for pity. Later in the trailer, Scott will even be mistaken for Spider-Man, which shows how the world ignores his feats and has indeed forgotten Peter Parker (Tom Holland) after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Cassie is a Genuis
The new trailer shows how Cassie is a genius engineer capable of building wondrous gadgets. She’s also determined to follow the family’s tradition by exploring the Quantum Realm. Scott lost five years of Cassie’s life after getting stuck in the Quantum Realm until the events of Endgame, and it will be interesting to know how their relationship develops.
Janet does not want to return to the Quantum Realm
Janet is obviously not interested in ever returning to the Quantum Realm. She demands Cassie shut off her device, knowing that they should not be sending a signal there. Naturally, she is proven correct when they are all sucked into the Quantum Realm. This was her prison for many years, a place where she had to abandon hope – figuratively and literally – and make a new life for herself.
Kang has Arrived
Of course, the biggest standout from the trailer is the emergence of Kang the Conqueror, who just looks perfect. The MCU has been noted to sometimes stray away from comics-accurate appearances, but this shows Kang as he is in the comics, blue face mask and all. He is clearly different from He Who Remains in Loki. He’s hardened and far more severe and domineering, a true conqueror with an army to boot.
The Tone is very Different
Overall, this trailer just shows Ant-Man in an incredibly different light than his previous films. While Kang’s mission for Scott will continue in their incorporation of heists, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is exceptionally darker and more serious in tone. The threat of Kang is large and imminent, making it seem like this will be a very consequential film for the MCU.
The movie is set to release February 17th 2023, in Cinemas.
