The Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania Trailer Shows That Jonathan Majors’s Kang the Conqueror as a New Villain!!

Paul Rudd's Scott Lang faces off against Jonathan Majors' Kang the Conqueror in the latest trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. It will also serve as the starting-point to Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania is coming out in February. On Tuesday, Marvel released a new trailer for the movie. This is the third Ant-Man movie on its own. The first one came out in 2015, and the second one came out in 2018. It will also be where Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will begin.

Like its predecessor, Quantum Mania is meant to be a key part of the MCU, which now has 30 movies. Ant-Man and the Wasp gave fans a primer on the Quantum Realm before Avengers: Endgame, but Quantumania will properly introduce the main villain of the new phase of the franchise.

Kang the Conqueror, who was played by Jonathan Majors, was first seen in the Disney+ show Loki. Over the next few years, he will be built up, and the two-part Avengers 5 and 6 movies, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, will be the climax.

Kang returns heavily in the new video, tempting Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang with the promise of reclaiming lost ‘time’ with Cassie, now played by Kathryn Newton. During the Blip, Scott effectively became an absent parent. Kang induces a trance in Scott, and despite his friends’ cautions, Scott continues to do Kang’s bidding.

Quantumania appears to have a significantly larger scale than the previous two Ant-Man films. In a prior interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Peyton Reed stated that he wanted Marvel to give the Ant-Man franchise more prominence this time around since he wasn’t satisfied with it being just the ‘palate cleanser’ of the MCU.

The trailer shows glimpses of the Quantum Realm, which appears to have been much extended this time around. Returning characters include Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer).

On February 17, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be released in theatres. It follows a frustrating couple of years for the MCU, with most films receiving lukewarm fan reactions despite being consistently successful at the box office.
