Today saw the release of the first trailer for Marvel Studios’ third instalment in the Paul Rudd-starring series. It shows Avengers Scott Lang (Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) being sucked into a mysterious machine that sends them into the Quantum Realm for additional multiverse complications as Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe picks up. Along with Scott’s daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton of Big Little Lies), returning cast members Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer, who play Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne, respectively, are also drawn into the drama. The Multiverse Saga begins with our five heroes travelling to an uncharted region of the MCU, and it appears that Janet’s earlier experience of being imprisoned in the Quantum Realm’s endless universe is what is ultimately responsible for this.
Until Ant-Man 3 arrives in cinemas in 2023, there are many details to be worked on. To help you out, we’ve put up a brief overview of Quantumania’s cast and what to look out to.
The Story: A Brief Summary what it is all about
Hank and Janet, Scott and Hope’s parents, probably have found themselves scouring the furthest needs to reach of the Quantum Realm, a “secret” multiverse of various kinds that really is home to weird new creatures as well as Marvel’s newest antagonist: Kang the Conquerer. The story takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with Scott trying to re-enter his life and adjust to his newfound celebrity-adjacent status after helping defeat Thanos (Jonathan Majors). Scott and his family will have to deal with dangers that might make the Infinity Saga appear like a square dance due to Kang’s desires and his apparent willingness to violate the laws of known physics to obtain them. Jimmy Woo from WandaVision, played by Randall Park, is anticipated to make a comeback following his time on Disney+ contending with the reality-altering Scarlet Witch.
Quantumania appears to be in a position to provide answers to the mysteries surrounding the second Ant-Man movie’s Ghost and the lost Pym particles from the first Ant-Man movie. However, do not anticipate that Cassie’s recasting will be highlighted in the sequel.
Who is the main Villain in the movie?
Majors’ Kang appears to be Multiverse Saga’s Thanos, although one without considerably greater & riskier goals, all aimed at upending several worlds both inside and outside of the MCU.
The character Majors played in Loki Season One on Disney+, He Who Remains, should not be confused with Kang, played by Majors. He Who Remains is not in Ant-Man, the Lovecraft Country actor and prospective Creed III actor just declared. This is Kang. The distinctive green and purple suit used by the villain in the comics will, however, appear in the threequel.
Marvel fans have indeed been excited in seeing Kang in live-action along with his distinctive and lethal abilities ever since he first appeared in the pages of Fantastic Four #19 back in 1963. The man appears to be able to move across time at will; he is like a living flux capacitor. His disturbing drive and ambition, along with the unusual telekinetic talents, seem to fuel his desire to rule the multiverse, even if it means murdering the Avengers in the process.
Who else should you foresee seeing?
When this year’s Quantumania trailer, which was shown at Comic-Con, featured the well-known M.O.D.O.K., fans literally lost their collective sh*t. Although he wasn’t in the most recent trailer, the villain with the enormous head will show up in the picture. When compared to his comic book version, the big-headed villain, portrayed by Patton Oswalt in animated form on his Hulu programme, enters the Marvel Cinematic Universe with certain stylistic alterations to his face. However, M.O.D.O.K. retains its oversized skull with recognisable head beam. He also makes an appearance using the robotic device he uses to move. We can only hope that the villain will have a more interesting role than being a mere Easter egg. In the trailer, Bill Murray even made a brief appearance. All we know about his character is that he’s a villain (or at least a villain who’s close to being one), and that he and Janet have a history.
Stature is one of Marvel’s newest and youngest heroes, making him one of the more intriguing characters set to emerge in Quantumania rather than a villain (or Stinger). Marvel fans are aware that Cassie Lang eventually dons a costume alongside her father, and Newton’s statement, “I’m trying to be doing my best to be the best superhero of all time,” virtually assures that Cassie will take on the role of Stature.
