Paul Rudd is back as the beloved Hero crawling right into the MCU with a more serious science fiction tone and reintroducing the imposing time-traveling entity named Kang the Conqueror. Marvel just dropped the latest preview for their hallucinatory “Ant-Man” sequel, directed once more by Peyton Reed and arriving this coming February 2023.
The third installment in the franchise, Ant-Man, and the Wasp: Quantumania will be the first movie in the fifth phase of the MCU and will also be directly linked to the next Avenger movie The Kang Dynasty.
“Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” will unfold the following events seen in 2018’s “Avengers: Endgame” while advancing the saga of Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man, and Hope van Dyne, aka The Wasp, now with Scott’s adult daughter Cassie joining the family superhero business.
This time around the characters find themselves exploring the Quantum Realm and finding new creatures to engage with. It’s hard to tell how the plot will unfold but the narrative seems to revolve around Paul Rudd’s adventures in the metaverse.
As seen in this trippy teaser, Cassie constructs a device that signals the Quantum Realm which has disastrous consequences as the family, along with Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), is sucked into the infinite madness of that miniaturized universe.

The makers have also gone ahead and released a trailer in Hindi targeting the Hindi-speaking portion of the Indian diaspora. Check that out too:
This Lilliputian civilization is now lorded over by the iconic Marvel baddie, Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), who was last seen briefly in Disney+’s “Loki” and who’s destined to become a major antagonistic force in the MCU moving forward into 2025’s “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.” Here, Kang hopes to enlist Ant-Man’s help in exchange for getting the gang back to reality. There might be one little catch!
The project will be the biggest Ant-Man movie to date, with Peyton Reed returning to direct making him the second director to complete an MCU trilogy along with Jon Watts (Spider-Man). Marvel’s next release is the Black Panther sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film releases on November 11.
The third Ant-Man film, “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Kathryn Newton, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Michael Douglas, is set to arrive in our dimension on February 17, 2023.
