Marvel Studios has released the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, introducing Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror who first showed up as the variant He Who Remains in the season finale of Loki.
Quantumania will officially kick off Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and sees the return of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man and Evangeline Lily as Hope Van Dyne aka the Wasp as they find themselves pulled into the Quantum Realm along with Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), and Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton). The family must embark on a journey through unknown and mysterious worlds and find a way back to their own universe.
In the trailer, Kang appears to offer help Scott and his family escape from the Quantum Realm in exchange for help himself, although Scott looks hesitant to trust him. As well he should because Jonathan Majors’ character has been confirmed to be the next big bad of the MCU that has been dubbed The Multiverse Saga. Quantumania will continue laying the building blocks of Kang that Loki started, with everything no doubt coming together for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty in 2025.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania releases in theaters on February 17, 2023.
