As with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the next Marvel Cinematic Universe entry is about to be released in theaters. Not every surprise in the films, as is the case with every Marvel film, appears in the trailers.
With that being said, there are bound to be a few unknown characters in the upcoming film that the general public will not know. Especially because we are witnessing the debut of Kang the Conqueror, who may bring a few people with him. So, let's look into 10 characters that might appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Loki Laufeyson, the Norse God of Mischief, the brother of Thor Odinson, is expected to star in Quantumania, played by Tom Hiddleston, who last saw him in his own Disney Plus series Loki, in which he interacted with Jonathon Majors' alternate version of Kang the Conqueror, He Who Remains.
Loki was transported to a different reality where the Time Variance Authority had statues of Kang at the end of his book. No, a post-credits scene might tease the second season of his series, which is expected to be released in 2023.
Miss Minutes first appeared in Loki as voiced by Tara Strong, and it's possible that some version of Miss Minutes has gone to Kang the Conqueror.
Kang hiring an assistant like J.A.R.V.I.S. or F.R.I.D.A.Y. might make sense and tie in with his futuristic origins in the comic books.
Ravonna Renslayer is a slayer.
Ravonna Renslayer may reprise her role in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays Renslayer. The last time we saw her she had opened a Timedoor and left, but we do not know where she went.
She spent the entire first season of Loki doing He Who Remains' bidding, although unknowingly. She will most likely continue to be in Kang's life some, especially if their relationship in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is similar to that in the comic books. So, maybe the film will have a post-credits scene with Ravonna either meeting Kang or greeting him after he escapes the Quantum Realm.
Darcy Lewis is a professional basketball player.
Darcy Lewis, everyone's favorite comic relief, might find herself in the midst of some Ant-Man shenanigans in Quantumania. The last time we saw the character — played by Kat Dennings — was in Thor: Love and Thunder. After the death of Jane Foster, her role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe might be to join up with or assist another character, Randall Park's Jimmy Woo.
Jimmy Woo is expected to appear in the film, as he first appeared in Ant-Man and the Wasp, and it's not too hard to imagine that Darcy will accompany him.
After her debut in Loki, Sylvie Laufeydottir might play our Loki in Quantumania. Sylvie was trapped in the Citadel at the End of Time the last time we saw her, and her appearing in the film might be more plausible.
Kang the Conqueror is most likely a variation of He Who Remains, but we don't know if he is the same person who runs the Time Variance Authority at the end of Loki. If he is the same character, there is a possibility that he might be keeping Sylvie trapped for the damage she caused to the timeline in the upcoming film.
Ava Starr, also known as Ghost, may appear in Quantumania. She is played by Hannah John-Kamen, who first appeared in Ant-Man and the Wasp, where she was one of the antagonists. Instead, the heroes of the film attempt to help her by going into the Quantum Realm, but Thanos fails and all of the heroes become dust.
Ghost is expected to be reintroduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of Thunderbolts. However, nothing from her character between the first film she appeared in, and when she joins the group of misfits would be interesting. Instead, it would be interesting to see a scene with her character, perhaps one that leads to her being recruited by Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), who is another possible character in the film.
Bill Foster is a retired professor at the University of New York.
Bill Foster, better known as Goliath or Giant-Man, starred in Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Laurence Fishburne might reprise his role in Quantumania. He spent most of the film helping Ghost's treatment, and he didn't dress up at all. It is also unlikely that Foster will do this in Quantumania unless he is one of the Avengers that Kang killed.
If Ava and Foster aren't in the movie, it's likely that he'll end the series as a trio. Either way, having both Ava and Foster in the film would serve as a nice ending to the last film, before our heroes clash against Kang.
Sonny Burch is a British author.
Sonny Burch, Walton Goggins' character from Ant-Man and the Wasp, may not be remembered. He was one of the main antagonists in the Ant-Man franchise's second installment, and he was the only player to return to the MCU. It would be quite odd if we would never see this character again, and it would make sense to either set him up as a low-level villain or even if we saw him dealing with someone he might have been working with, or for.
We don't know who Burch might have been working for. There's a possibility that we'll continue that plotline and see who he was attempting to sell the Pym Particles to. Maybe he'd sell them to Wilson Fisk, better known as The Kingpin, or Sharon Carter now that she's dealings in Madripoor. Or, Burch might have just been attempting to make quick, although dangerous, cash from Pym's technology.
Kate Bishop is a British author.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is preparing for an upcoming Young Avengers pairing. So far, we have gotten Ms. Marvel, Patriot, Wiccan, America Chavez, and now with Quantumania, Cassie Lang's (Kathryn Newton) Stature. Kate Bishop is played by Hailee Steinfeld in the Disney Plus series Hawkeye.
There is also the possibility that America Chavez might appear in the film, although this seems less likely because her ability to travel through the multiverse as well as her magical abilities would make the film irrelevant. After all, Bishop is a street hero, and would be the most likely to encounter Cassie in The Marvels.
Ant-Man is a superhero.
Don't click away, we've got your attention. Ant-Man is going to be in the film, it's called Ant-Man! Wasp, please don't refer to Paul Rudd's Ant-Man. After all, Kang stated previously that he had killed the Avengers, what would happen if Hank Pym wasn't talking about Scott Lang or Avengers: Endgame?
We may easily get a flashback to Kang killing a younger, digitally-aged Michael Douglas, wearing a comic book-accurate outfit, and dying at the hands of Kang. Or they might train someone else to play the character in a different timeline or digitally age Janet Van Dyne.
Do you think any of these characters will appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania? We think some of these characters will have a better chance of appearing than other Marvel heroes and villains, but hopefully we haven't left any obvious ones off the list.
When Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania comes to theaters on February 17, 2023, you may catch it.
