The D23 Expo is currently being held in the USA and kino.de is taking part in the big Disney event. Thanks to my colleague Bea, who is there and was able to see the first trailer for “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”, among other things, I can tell you what the preview of what is certainly the most important film of the coming year from Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) reveals.
Scott Lang aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) not only celebrates success as a superhero, but also as a book author, because he published his autobiography. He and Hope van Dyne aka Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) are now officially a couple and have been photographed together on the red carpet. Meanwhile, Scott’s daughter Cassie (now played by Kathryn Newton) spends a lot of time with Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and is tech-savvy herself, having built a transmitter that sends a signal into subatomic space (originally: the Quantum Realm).
A test goes awry, however, and Scott, Cassie, and Hank and Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) are drawn into subatomic space, while being separated to make matters worse. In subatomic space, we first meet Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), the new villain in the Multiverse saga. This is how Marvel Studios describes the current story, which spans phases 4 to 6 of the MCU and which will experience a climax in 2025 with “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty”. We already saw Jonathan Majors in Loki, but there as a different version of the character called The One Who Stays, who even tried to stop the rise of the many Kangs in the multiverse. If you still have questions about the MCU multiverse, our video will certainly help you:
Exactly what this is is still unclear, but according to Popverse, Kang provided impressive proof of what the multiverse villain is capable of. When he met Ant-Man, he reportedly said, “You’re an Avenger. have i killed you before After a while, they all blur together.”
This version of Kang (there are countless in the multiverse after all) apparently already has a number of Avengers on his conscience and Ant-Man has to be very careful that he doesn’t become the next one. In addition to this threatening starting position, a renewed excursion into the fantastic subatomic space and Kang’s debut, a heist awaits us in the MCU film, with which the third part of the series stylistically ties in with the first “Ant-Man” film. This should be some visually appealing fun that we can enjoy from February 15, 2023 when “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” hits German cinemas.
