It’s hard to believe it will be nearly five years since we last saw Ant-Man aka Scott Lang aka Paul Rudd co-starring with Wasp aka Hope van Dyne aka Evangeline Lilly in the last Ant-Man movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp. Since then the entire Infinity War-Endgame went down and we’ve moved all the way through an entire “Phase” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Phase V begins with Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania and Marvel revealed the first trailer for the film this week.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania sees the return of Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym and Michelle Pfeiffer as Dr. Janet van Dyne. It also features the big villain for Phase V, Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors (Loki, Creed III) and Bill Murray as a goofy villain like Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok.
Here’s the first trailer–actually two, one ant-sized–for Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania:
Unfortunately Marvel didn’t bring back the original now 14-year-old actress Abby Ryder Fortson (the best kid actor of the MCU) or the last actress to play Scott’s daughter in Avengers: Endgame, Emma Fuhrmann, casting 25-year-old MCU newcomer Kathryn Newton (Freaky, Supernatural) for the role.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is slated to arrive in theaters February 17, 2023.
