Scott's crew might not have much room anymore in the Ant-Man series, especially when he's busy fighting what might be Marvel's most dangerous villain to date, and in all places, so fans can be assured that he'll return for Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, just with a different personality.
Kurt is gone, and be sure to see Veb. There isn't much information on Veb right now, but the most recent teaser for the Ant-Man threequel released during the Super Bowl on Sunday finally gave us a first look at Dastmalchian's brand new character.
Veb comes out of nowhere to greet Scott, who is surprised to see the strange creature's appearance. We now know Veb is not a human, but rather a blob of slimy limbs, with a gigantic transparent jar-shaped vessel for his exposed brain and eyeballs.
Veb is an MCU original, without any comic origins, and will likely serve as comic relief in what is otherwise rumored to be a more serious twist for the insect-inspired superhero trilogy. He is a member of the Freedom Fighters, a group of rebels who are attempting to depose Kang from his rule over the Quantum Realm, alongside Jentorra and Quaz.
Others have also discovered some similarities between Veb and Ant-Man from the zombie episode of What If...?, whose head is also stored in a similar looking bell jar. Still, we don't see a viable connection there.
Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, and Michelle Pfeiffer reprise their roles as Scott Lang, Hope van Dyne, Hank Pym, and Janet Van Dyne in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. Jonathan Majors plays Kang the Conqueror, while Kathryn Newton takes over Cassie Lang.
The first film from Marvel's Phase five will be released on February 17, by which point we'll finally know what kind of fascinating species Veb is.
