The primary two Ant-Man motion pictures had been each breaks from the epic motion of the remainder of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ant-Man 1 was like just a little epilogue to Avengers: Age of Ultron. Ant-Man and the Wasp was like just a little ellipsis within the area between Avengers: Infinity Warfare and Avengers: Endgame. These motion pictures had been the intermezzo between main programs of the meal that’s the MCU.
However Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is totally different. As an alternative of the coda after a section, it’s the official kickoff of Section 5 of the MCU, and the formal introduction of Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror, who would be the key villain within the subsequent a number of years of Marvel motion pictures and exhibits. The selection to introduce Kang within the usually small-stakes world of Ant-Man was a deliberate alternative, based on Marvel’s Kevin Feige in a brand new Quantumania featurette.
“We at all times love doing the sudden with Scott Lang,” Feige says. “Ant-Man is arguably the character that’s the most underestimated. Ant-Man grew to become the important thing to saving the universe in Avengers: Endgame. So, carrying that custom, we thought, ‘Let’s use this movie to kick off Section 5.’”

It’s a little jarring to see Ant-Man, the man who shrinks to steal stuff (and sometimes grows massive to punch Falcon within the face) now squaring off with Kang, one of many deadliest villains within the historical past of Marvel. That doesn’t seem to be a particularly reasonable struggle. However maybe that’s the purpose. Don’t you wish to see how Ant-Man beats this man? Or at the very least survives to struggle one other day in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars?
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is scheduled to open completely in theaters on February 17.
