According to a Marvel producer, the end of the Ant-Man trilogy will have huge consequences for the rest of the MCUsetting up catastrophic situations that would lead to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
Stephen Broussard, a producer at Marvel Studios, recently stated in a press release that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be “so important and integral to the MCU going forward” Like the sequels to Captain America.
“We talked about movies like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, where you saw the fall of SHIELD and it seemed like the whole MCU revolved around that,” Broussard said. “Captain America: Civil War was another movie where the heroes were divided into two camps and battle lines were drawn, it seemed like the future of the MCU was going to be defined by the action of that movie. We really liked the idea of turning this Ant-Man movie into something very important and integral to the future of the MCU“.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be the first movie of Phase 5 of the UCM. Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang will star in his third solo film alongside his hilarious family of heroes. Scott and his family are sucked into the Quantum Realm after an experiment goes wrong, and now they must find a way out of this strange and dangerous world.
“One of the philosophies that we’ve always pursued at the studio is to go back to the character and connect it to science fiction and fun world building, but ultimately, these items are a showcase for the characters who are on this journey“, añade Broussard.
“As long as we never forget that It is the story of a father and daughter who reconnectwhich is essentially the background of this movie, then the complexity of the multiverse and the Quantum Realm sorts itself out, because you just have to understand that it’s a story of a father and his daughter.”
The next film will also take to the big screen to the great villain of the Saga of the Multiverse: Kang the Conqueror. Jonathan Major was first seen in the role of this character in the final episode of Loki, but it is likely that his power will continue to grow in the new film. Since Avengers: Kang’s Dynasty (2025) is based on Kang, Ant-Man 3’s impact could be as big as any future MCU project.
Captain America: Civil War separated Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and took the MCU in a new direction. If Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is anything like that, prepare for something too big to happen in the Quantum Realm.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will hit theaters on February 17, 2023.
