A new, action-packed trailer for Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania debuted during Monday’s College Football Playoff National Championship. We only had to wait three quarters for it.
Kicking off Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the fast-paced, big-screen adventure features the MCU’s most powerful villain to date: Kang the Conqueror. If you’re not familiar with Kang, he is a time-traveling entity and descendant of the scientist of the same name.
Several alternate versions of Kang have appeared throughout Marvel Comics titles over the years, including his respective future and past heroic selves, Pharaoh Rama-Tut, Immortus, Iron Lad, Victor Timely, Scarlet Centurion, Chronomonitor #616, and Mister Gryphon.
Kang, played by Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country, Creed 3) made his debut last year in the hit MCU Disney+ series, Loki. He was introduced as a variant, “He Who Remains” as Loki and his female variant, Sylvie, watched the destruction of the multiverse.
In the second Ant-Man sequel, partners Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures with Hope’s parents, Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Scott’s daughter, Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton).
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 possible. It seems the film will dive into Scott’s feelings of lost time with his daughter while he was trapped in the Quantum Realm after Thanos’ infamous snap. Watch the intense trailer below:
There’s also a new poster. And it’s nice to see illustration make a return:
Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania also stars Jonathan Majors as Kang, David Dastmalchian as Veb, Katy O’Brian as Jentorra, William Jackson Harper as Quaz, and Bill Murray as Lord Krylar.
The sci-fi adventure opens in theaters on February 17, 2023.
