The Marvel panel at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con revealed the first poster for the upcoming MCU movie ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’. This is the third movie starring Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, the thief-turned-superhero, who wears a specially-powered suit, allowing him to shrink or increase in size. 

However, Ant-Man’s team has also expanded over time, and he has Hope, the daughter of Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, played by Michael Douglas in the movie. The character, played by Evangeline Lilly, took on the mantle of Wasp. Hope appeared as Wasp in the second Ant-Man film and then helped the Avengers take down Thanos in ‘Endgame’ as well.

Meanwhile, ‘Ant-Man 3’ has a new addition to the superhero squad as Cassie Lang – Scott’s daughter – suits up. She was first introduced in ‘Ant-Man’ and saw her father fight the antagonist Yellowjacket, in her bedroom. When Cassie appears in ‘Avengers: Endgame’, she’s seen after the blip from ‘Infinity War’ and a considerable amount of time has passed. Scott was in the quantum realm and the next time he meets his daughter, she’s grown up and the character’s played by Kathryn Newton of ’13 Reasons Why’ fame. Although Cassie joins her father and Hope, it remains to be seen whether she takes up the comic book moniker Stinger. 

The poster also shows Kang the Conqueror looming in the background. The being is a multiversal and time-travelling adversary, who was introduced as a dangerous variant to He Who Remains, the character Loki kills at the end of the Disney+ series.

When Kang was introduced in Phase 4 of the MCU, ‘Loki’ head writer Michael Waldron envisioned him as the next Thanos-level villain. ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ also includes Michelle Pfeiffer and Bill Murray in the cast. The former plays Hank’s wife, Janet, who’s been retrieved from the quantum realm, while Murray plays the role of an undisclosed villain. 

The film is slated to release on February 17, 2023.
