Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has now arrived, unveiling what Marvel’s Phase 5 of the Cinematic Universe is capable of! This star-studded blockbuster not only continues its characters’ adventures but also gives us an insight on Kang The Conqueror’s (Jonathan Majors) power moving forward.
As viewers travel through Quantumania, Marvel Comics fanatics can find a few stellar Easter eggs to enjoy. Without giving away too much, one of these references appears to be an homage to the origin story of its main character – Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd). If you’re curious and don’t mind spoilers, look below for more details!
As the Quantum Realm Freedom Fighters make their move to thwart Kang’s forces, they must unlock a drawbridge. Quaz (William Jackson Harper) uses his mental agility to decode the code – 18147 – which is enriched with comic history significance as it corresponds with Scott’s first ever appearance in Avengers #181 and Marvel Premiere #47 where he debuted as Ant-Man.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is back with an exciting adventure for Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly). Joined by their family -Hope’s parents Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), as well as Scott’s daughter Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton)- they will be exploring a strange new domain, encountering peculiar creatures, testing boundaries of what they believe to be possible. Brace yourself; this heroic journey is sure to take you on a wild ride!
Under the astute direction of Peyton Reed and production by Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania stars an illustrious cast which includes Jonathan Majors as Kang, David Dastmalchian as Veb, Katy O’Brian Jentorra. William Jackson Harper plays Quaz while Bill Murray shines in his role as Lord Krylar.
Marvel fans, did you spot the hidden Easter egg in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania? If not, watch it again because this tiny reference to Marvel comics is one you won’t want to miss!
Will there be an Ant-Man 4?
Marvel Studios has yet to officially confirm a fourth Ant-Man film, however producer Stephen Broussard recently asserted with certainty that this is definitely a possibility.
“We’re already thinking about it,” Broussard revealed. “It’s like, every movie’s its own battle and you bear the scars of making it and wanting to make it great. But hope springs eternal and you start to put yourself back together after the journey of making the movie. You’re like, ‘Yeah, what if we did X and what if we did Y?’ Like the wheels start turning, you can’t help yourself. I don’t want to say anything about specifically what those are, but yeah, you can’t help yourself. Those conversations, those whispers have already started to happen between myself and Peyton and Kevin.”
