Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is an upcoming American superhero film based on Marvel Comics featuring the characters Scott Lang / Ant-Man and Hope Pym / Wasp. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is intended to be the sequel to Ant-Man (2015) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) and the 31st film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Peyton Reed, written by Jeff Loveness, and stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne alongside Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, Jonathan Majors, David Dastmalchian, and Randall Park. In the film, Lang and van Dyne explore the Quantum Realm along with their family and face Kang the Conqueror (Majors).
Plans for a third Ant-Man film were confirmed in November 2019, with Reed and Rudd returning. Loveness was hired by April 2020, with development on the film beginning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The film’s title and new cast members were announced in December 2020. Filming in Turkey began in early February 2021, while additional filming occurred in San Francisco in mid-June, ahead of principal photography starting at the end of July at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire and ending in November.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is scheduled to be released in the United States on February 17, 2023, as the first film of Phase Five of the MCU.
Ahead of the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), director Peyton Reed said there were elements of that film that leave “a lot to play with” in a potential third film in the franchise. He highlighted the Quantum Realm, which was introduced in Ant-Man (2015) and explored further in Ant-Man and the Wasp; Reed said they were “just dipping our toes into it” for the previous films. Reed added that he and Marvel Studios were hopeful about a third film and had discussed potential story points for such a sequel. In February 2019, Hank Pym actor Michael Douglas confirmed that informal discussions regarding a sequel to Ant-Man and the Wasp had taken place, though by that time Evangeline Lilly had not heard of any plans for her character Hope van Dyne / Wasp following her role in Avengers: Endgame (2019). Lilly stated that “Hope is mid-journey. I don’t see her journey as being over by any stretch.” That October, Michelle Pfeiffer expressed interest in reprising her role of Janet van Dyne in a sequel, while Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was asked about the future of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang / Ant-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) following Endgame, and responded that “the chess pieces were arranged very purposefully” at the end of that film, with some taken “off the board” and others, like Ant-Man, “still on [the board, so] you never know”. Rudd was asked whether he would be returning to the role, either in a third Ant-Man film or as part of another hero’s MCU franchise, and said that both of those options had been discussed.
Reed officially signed on to direct a third Ant-Man film at the start of November 2019. Rudd was set to star as Lang, with Lilly and Douglas also returning. Filming was scheduled to begin in January 2021 for a likely release date in 2022. Reed was hired again, despite Marvel’s interest in new filmmakers bringing different takes to their heroes for each film, because executives felt he had “a real grasp on the Ant-Man universe and want[ed] to see him return to wrap up his trilogy”. Jeff Loveness was hired to write the script for the film during “the early days of Hollywood’s shutdown” due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and he had begun working on the screenplay by April 2020. At that point, it was no longer clear when production would begin on the film due to the effects of the pandemic on all film productions. In August 2020, Reed confirmed that development on the film was continuing during the pandemic. He said that Lilly would continue to get equal billing in the film alongside Rudd as she is “a very, very important part” of the partnership between Ant-Man and the Wasp, despite rumors that her role would be reduced following controversial comments about the pandemic. Reed added that the story for the film had been “cracked”, though “nothing [was] official yet”, and said the third film would be a “bigger, more sprawling movie than the first two [with] a very different visual template”. Reed stated they wanted to further explore the Quantum Realm in the film as a “massive world-building undertaking”, and compared its design to electron microscope photography, the Heavy Metal magazine issues of the 1970s and 1980s, and his favorite science fiction cover artists such as Jean Giraud for fantastical realism. Marvel Studios producer Brian Gay said the film would “feel like a real departure” from the first two Ant-Man films and be a big adventure. Fellow Marvel Studios executive Stephen Broussard was producing the film alongside Feige.
- Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man:
An Avenger and former petty criminal with a suit that allows him to shrink or grow in scale while increasing in strength. After the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), Lang has become a well-known celebrity to the public, as well as the author of an autobiographical book titled Look Out for the Little Guy, which tells a different version of how he helped save the universe from Thanos in Endgame.
- Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne / Wasp:
The daughter of Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne who is handed down a similar suit and the Wasp mantle from her mother. Lilly said the film would explore how the character deals with her “fragilities and her vulnerabilities”, continuing from how Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) showed how powerful and capable she was.
- Michael Douglas as Hank Pym: A former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, entomologist, and physicist who became the original Ant-Man after creating the suit.
- Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne: Pym’s wife, Hope’s mother, and the original Wasp, who was lost in the Quantum Realm for 30 years.
- Kathryn Newton as Cassie Lang:
Scott Lang’s daughter who acquires a suit similar to her father’s. She is scientifically inclined, and gains an interest in Pym’s old notes and learning more about the science and technology from the Quantum Realm. The character was previously portrayed as a child by Abby Ryder Fortson in the previous Ant-Man films and as a teenager by Emma Fuhrmann in Endgame. Director Peyton Reed said that he wanted to further develop the relationship between Cassie and Scott, as it was central to the previous Ant-Man films.
- Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror:
A “time-traveling, multiversal adversary” trapped in the Quantum Realm who is an alternate-timeline variant of the character He Who Remains, the creator of the Time Variance Authority (TVA) introduced in the first season of Loki (2021). Kang was described by Loki season one head writer Michael Waldron as the “next big cross-movie villain” for the MCU. Majors said Kang is different from He Who Remains, who is not in Quantumania, with a shifted psychology, portraying Kang differently from He Who Remains due to the different characters surrounding him, and transitioning from a series to a film. He was attracted to Kang’s “character and dimensions” and the potential that presented to him as an actor, noting Kang would be a different type of villain to the MCU than Erik Killmonger and Thanos were, as well as the possibility of playing a complex villain about whom everyone has to be careful, akin to Iago in William Shakespeare’s tragedy Othello (1603). Majors added 10 pounds (4.5 kg) of muscle for the role, focusing on strength and conditioning training. Reed said Quantumania would show a “different flavor” of Majors’ approach to Kang’s alternate versions, and explained Kang “has dominion over time”, calling him a warrior, strategist, and an “all-timer antagonist” compared to the antagonists of the prior Ant-Man films as a “force of nature”. Given his work with time, Kang does not live a linear life.
- David Dastmalchian as Kurt: A member of Lang’s X-Con Security crew.
- Randall Park as Jimmy Woo: An FBI agent who was previously Lang’s parole officer.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is scheduled to be released on February 17, 2023. The film was previously set to be released in 2022, before being officially announced as releasing on February 17, 2023, in May 2021. It was delayed to July 28, 2023, in October 2021, and returned to the February 2023 date in April 2022. It will be the first film of Phase Five of the MCU.
