Marvel Cinematic Universe – Phase Five
ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA (February 14, 2023)
Director: Peyton Reed
Starring: Paul Rudd, Jonathan Majors, Evangeline Lilly, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, Michael Douglas, William Jackson Harper
If you don’t already know Jonathan Majors from Lovecraft Country or Da 5 Bloods. Add him to your list of top Hollywood talent on the verge of superstardom. Before we see him in Creed III, he squares off against Ant-Man in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. We first saw Majors as Kang the Conqueror in the final episode of Loki Season 1. He’s been teased as the next massive Marvel villain rivaling Thanos. In Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, we learn he’s been stuck in the Quantum realm with Michelle Pfeiffer’s character, Janet Van Dyne. To recap, the Quantum realm is a subatomic universe that is full of mystery and power. Back on normal-sized Earth, Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang would like a break from being an Avenger. He’s written a memoir but would rather just spend time being dad to his daughter, Cassie, (Newton). She’s following in the family footsteps by studying Quantum and giving herself powers. That is until her new device sucks herself, Scott, Janet, Hope, and Hank into the Quantum realm. It’s a world unlike anything they would have expected but full of danger once they learn Kang the Conqueror is after Scott and Cassie.
