Who would have thought that Ant-Man would one day have his movie trilogy, like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Spider-Man? He is not an A-list Avenger in the comics, but the young Paul Rudd and company have made Ant-Man’s corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe their own. People will be able to visit it again in 2023.
A new movie is coming out called “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” which is about two people who are superheroes. It’s about Scott Lang, who can change the size, and Hope Pym whose superpower is to grow wings. Marvel Studios made this film. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures distributed it. It is the sequel to Ant-Man (2015) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018). It is the 33rd movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is directed by Peyton Reed, and it has a script written by Jeff Loveness. The star is Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. Other famous actors that are in the film include Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer.
There are plans for another Ant-Man film. The people who made the first two films will be in the third one. They are making it now when there is a disease called COVID-19 that has killed many people. In December 2020, the name of the film and who was in it were announced. Filming started in Turkey in February 2021. In June 2021, more filming took place at a place called San Francisco before filming started at a studio called Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire. Shooting will also happen in Atlanta. Shooting is expected to last until 2022.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is set to be released in the United States on July 28, 2023. It will be part of Phase Four of the MCU.
What is the release date of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania?
“Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” is coming out in July. It will be one of the movies that Marvel pushed back when they changed the release dates for their movies in 2022. Originally, “The Marvels” was supposed to come out in 2023, but then the studio bumped it from 2022 to 2023.
“Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” will open in the summer of 2023. It will be opened in theaters, but then it will go to the Disney+ streaming service. Due to the pandemic, Marvel’s release strategy for “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” has been in flux. You could not stream it right away if it follows the model of “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”
What is the plot of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania?
“Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” is the third Ant-Man movie and the 33rd movie overall in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. The film’s title means that there is a chance that time traveling and multiverse hoping will happen. The Quantum Realm is where the hero can go when he needs to shrink small.
The Ant-Man was important in making the Avengers time travel. He and the Wasp will fight a new multiverse enemy called Kang. More below on that topic…
Who will be starring in it?
Peyton Reed, who directed the first two “Ant-Man” movies, is returning to helm “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.” At present, Jeff Loveness is the only credited screenwriter. Paul Rudd helped to write both scripts before this and Marvel movies usually have two or more screenwriters so it would not be surprising if Paul’s name or others were added to the credits as the script goes through more drafts.
In Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, the actors will reprise their roles as Scott Lang, Hope van Dyne, Hank Pym, and Janet van Dyne. Kathryn Newton will take over the role of Cassie Lang from “Avengers: Endgame” who aged five years during the time jump.
It isn’t confirmed yet that Michael Peña and David Dastmalchian are going to be in the movie, but we know that rapper T.I. won’t be there. So if they want him in the movie, then a new actor will have to play him.
A new villain for “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” is major Marvel baddie, Kang the Conqueror. He was played by Jonathan Majors. Another version of this character called He Who Remains appeared in the finale of “Loki” season 1. As the dust settled from that finale, showrunner Michael Waldron said that Kang was probably going to be the next villain in the MCU. He would be like Thanos up until now.
