We’re less than 5 months away from the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and there is still so little known about the film. While Marvel’s projects always tend to be shrouded in a veil of secrecy, there hasn’t been a single teaser unveiled to the general public or a plot synopsis for this film. In fact, all there right now is a poster, and that was unveiled two months ago at San Diego Comic-Con.
Thanks to Geek Vibes Nation, however, that’s about to change. Sources close to the site allege that, contrary to popular belief, Kang and Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man won’t have an absolutely antagonistic relationship. In fact, the site claims that Kang will recruit Ant-Man for a heist involving an item that the character is heavily associated with in the comics.
It’s called a “time chair.” For those who aren’t fans of the comics, it is the instrument that allows Kang to traverse space and time. It also has built-in weapons and shields so that the character can literally attack and defend without having to stand up.
In the film, the item will have apparently been stolen from him. And he is desperate to get it back.
Now because nothing is ever simple with Kang, the site also alleges that he will not only appear before Scott and ask him for a favor, but rather hold his daughter Cassie hostage until he gets what he wants. That’s how the recently (re)cast character comes into play.
Additionally, the site claims that Bill Murray’s character will be a close associate of Kang’s. More specifically, they say that he will playing a character named Krylar. While it’s unclear if the character is human or alien, it is believed that the character was stuck in the Quantum Realm at around the same time as Janet Van Dyne. Judging by what the site says, he’s still in the Quantum Realm in the film.
It is important to note that there is a character with the same name in the comics who operates in the Microverse. Because the Quantum Realm is the MCU’s version of the Microverse, it’s likely that (if true) this character is a very loose adaptation of him.
As always, because this information has not been confirmed, we urge readers to take it with a grain of salt.
Nevertheless, we are still excited for whatever the film holds. To date, we have yet to see what Kang is truly capable of. In just a few months, that’s all going to change.
Having previously directed the first two installments, now that Quantumania has wrapped filming, Reed is the second director to complete a trilogy set within the MCU after Jon Watts.
In the film, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will reprise their roles as the titular duo. Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer will also return as Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, the characters who donned the outfits and alter egos first.
New to the cast is Kathryn Newton. She’ll be replacing Emma Fuhrmann as Cassie Lang a.k.a Stature in the films going forward. Fuhrmann portrayed the character in Avengers: Endgame.
Additionally, Jonathan Majors is expected to reprise his role as Kang the Conquerer. Originally, it was believed that he would be making his debut in the film, but that was before he appeared in Loki as the character under the pseudonym “He Who Remains”. Whether or not the version of the character we meet will be a variant or the actual version we’ve already met remains to be seen.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania opens in theaters on February 17, 2023!
