Before seeing Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, here are 7 things MCU fans should know

Before seeing Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, here are 7 things MCU fans should know ...

Warning: This article will contain spoilers from previous Ant-Man films as well as some predictions for the next Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Jonathan Majors will be seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as Kang the Conqueror. Only, he's not just interested in taking over a world or a universe; he's also interested in bringing all of the puzzle pieces from Phase 4 to their correct places.

Quantumania looks to be all about time, a precious commodity that we call time. Scott (Paul Rudd) and Cassie lost five years and will be trying to make up for it. Both Hank and Hope lost 30 years away from Janet, and they may be drawn by Kang's promises of more time.

There are always things that people are unsure about when they saw Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Avengers: Endgame, and Loki. Here are some additional tips to remember before you grab a bag of popcorn and settle into a theater seat.

Scott and Cassie

While Scott tries to figure out who his young daughter is, expect some bonding moments between them. (Kathryn Newton) Remember, he was stranded in the Quantum Realm for five years after Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) were all ejected during Thanos' snap.

When Cassie was young, Scott was very close, and this film will be about Scott attempting to make up for lost time. In the teaser, Kang promises to give Ant-Man the one thing he wants most, time.

Quantum Healing Particles

Scott reenters the Quantum Realm during the filming of Ant-Man and the Wasp. She was there to discover some Quantum Healing Particles to help stabilize Ava Starr, aka Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), who was suffering from quantum entropy and needed quantum energy to survive. She may be irritated by the main protagonists for basically forgetting about her.


Corey Stoll played Ant-Man as Darren Cross/Yellowjacket in the first Ant-Man film in 2015.

Darren Cross held Cassie captive at the end of Ant-Man. Scott goes subatomic and destroys the Yellowjacket suit, causing the suit's destabilization. Darren's body begins to shrink down before seemingly disappearing into nothing, although we will have to wait to see what we can conclude.

Janet Van Dyne is a Dutch journalist.

Janet Van Dyne grew up in the Quantum Realm for over 30 years, and she gained a lot of knowledge while living there for three decades. From the looks of the trailer, she clearly knows Kang from her time in the Quantum Realm and knows he is not to be trusted.

Janet's expertise in the Quantum Realm will be invaluable while our heroes navigate the unknown during Quantumania. Of course, she likely encountered foes along the way, so it may be addressed in the upcoming film.

William Jackson Harper is a British author.

Since it was first reported that William Jackson Harper would join the MCU in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, he's been rumored to play Doctor Doom, Miles Morales, a Kang variant, and even The Watcher. His IMDb profile has now been updated, including a character named Quaz, who is a telepath and freedom fighter in the Quantum Realm.

This might be Quasar, a superman who travels to other dimensions. Shang-Chi's 10 rings and Kamala Khan's bangle are possible links to Kang and the Quantum Realm, so his becoming Quasar sounds plausible and might aid in Kang's connection.

Bill Murray is well-known for his contributions to the Bill Murray Foundation.

Lord Krylar, Bill Murray's character, was revealed in early January as a surprise comeback from Janet's past. He might provoke some disagreement, but he will be similar to Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok.

Krylar, a shady character in Marvel's official character database, lived in the subatomic realm known as the Microverse. Murray's character was only mentioned in one issue of Incredible Hulk #156, so his presence may not last long.


During the events of Loki, He Who Remains, his many variations will wreak havoc across the Multiverse. The most likely variant inside the Quantum Realm is Kang the Conqueror. It will be interesting to see how he got there and whether or not he was able to use force.

No doubt, Kang is planning to manipulate Scott and stab our hero in the back, but Scott appears to be having an internal struggle since he seems to promise him the time he lost with Cassie.

The chances are fairly good that more than one Kang is trapped inside the film, given the infinite number of Kangs across the Multiverse. The trailer also makes it appear like there are many Scott Lang's inside the movie, but that may be a trick Kang is using on Scott.

Although Ant-Man films usually conclude the day on a good note, this one is unlikely to be the same. Kang must conqueror, and this is where his conquering begins. We're just hoping that when the credits roll, there won't be any casualties from Team Ant-Man.

Advance tickets are now on sale. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be released on February 17.
