Quantumania will begin its entirety title in Ant-Man 3, but it will be sent to the big screen over the next several years, sending shrinking heroes Ant-Man and the Wasp into their third adventure. We wager that if you went back ten years, even the most dedicated Marvel fan would have laughed.
But both Ant-Man and the Wasp have proven themselves to be key players in the MCU, even if their superhero names sound a little silly. So what can we expect from the next threequel? And what exactly does Quantumania mean? Bill Murray is not really in it?
Ant-Man 3 release date
Ant-Man 3 will be released in the United States on February 17, 2023. This is why the rest of the world should also be able to go and see the movie in their nearest theater around the same time.
Because the release date is in line with the World Cup, it''s assumed the release will not coincide with another significant international sporting event. As for Ant-Man and the Wasp, that film ended up being delayed several weeks in several European countries.
Ant-Man 3 cast
Both Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will reprise their roles as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp in Ant-Man 3, according to officials. Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer are also expected to be returning as Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, retired heroes.
The reason why Randall Park will reprise Jimmy Woo has been broken from D23.
Weirdly enough, actor Bill Murray revealed his own involvement in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Murray claims to be a feature in the film, and Peyton Reed believes him to join the group.
Kathryn Newton, who plays Cassie Lang briefly in Avengers: Endgame, will play Cassie Lang and Abby Ryder Forston, who played Cassie in the first two Ant-Man films.
Jonathan Majors, who will be playing Kang the Conqueror, has been confirmed by Lovecraft Countrys, while Corey Stoll is alleged to be returning as Darren Cross/Yellowjacket.
Ant-Man 3 villain (or villains?)
Kang the Conqueror is a well-known villain from Marvel Comics, who is known for his ability to travel through time and dismantling many heroes at different stages of history. This makes his comics history complicated. It also means that there are several different versions of the character in the various comic series, and not all villains.
Kang is still known as a regular foe of both The Avengers and the Fantastic Four rather than Ant-Man. This is why Kang is unlikely to make his first appearance here. Heres just hoping to have a significant role to play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future.
In a leak from the crew merch, we may have just got our first look at Kang''s Ant-Man 3 look. This is a very traditional look for the purple-helmeted villain, unlike the Loki finale''s preview, seen in a mirror of Ant-Man''s helmet.

Corey Stoll, who was last seen strewn into nothingness at the end of the very first Ant-Man film, is believed to be on the verge of return. While he was unconcerned, a new image from the Instagram account has been enthused.
Lillys'' post was hailed for having just received her copy of the script and included a number of parties involved in her description. They included Corey Stoll, which is why people are wondering if the villain might reprise the cast for the third film.
Right now, Marvel Studios has nothing been confirmed, but it does mean that Ant-Man 3 may have a lot more going on than we originally thought.
Ant-Man 3 plot speculation
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania are directly linked to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Rudd is quoted as saying this film is quite impressive because the smaller characters do far more than they have previously thought.
Quantumania all but confirms that the subatomic quantum realm will play a key role in the film, which might well be where Kang and Yellowjacket come into play.
Fans have speculated that Kang''s existence was teased during Ant-Man and the Wasp''s quantum realm scenes. At one point a city can be seen in the background, and it has been suggested that this might well be Chronopolis, which has had connections to several iterations of Kang throughout his comics history.
Yellowjacket might have been moved back to the quantum realm, although the way at which he fell was so violent and possibly deadly, although if Cross had survived, he would have ended up being stuck in the quantum realm like Janet and Scott.
Then again, with time travel now firmly established in the MCU, and the presence of a time-travelling villain, we might know that come into play during the movie. Not only would Dead characters (like Cross) return from the grave, it might also tie into the upcoming Loki Disney Plus series. And the MCU would not be the MCU without several links to other properties.
