Everything We Know About Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania So Far
As Paul Rudd said, “Hey, look at us- who would’ve thought?”
In an exciting surprise reveal during the Marvel Studios portion of Disney Investor Day, Kevin Feige revealed that Ant-Man will have a third feature film in his franchise, titled Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Along with unveiling the title design, the announcement included tons of news about returning cast, new characters, the crew, and more.
Director Peyton Reed returns to helm this latest installment of Scott Lang’s pint-sized heisting, and the core cast of Paul Rudd (Lang), Evangeline Lilly (Hope van Dyne, aka Wasp), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man), and Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet van Dyne, the original Wasp) will all suit up in their roles once again.

Fans will recall that when we last saw Scott Lang, he was trapped in the Quantum Realm until being freed by a heroic rat during Avengers: Endgame. During this time, his daughter Cassie Lang aged to her teen years, thinking her father was dead. Kathryn Newton will join the Ant-Man film cast as Cassie (could the Young Avengers be close behind?), and due to the quantum hijinks involved, Marvel has revealed that Jonathan Majors will be playing Kang the Conqueror.
After the Disney Investor Day announcements, it was further revealed that Rick and Morty writer Jeff Loveness will tackle the giant-sized script. He confirmed the reports in a Tweet stating, “…I have found my Lear.”

Last week, it was also seemingly confirmed by Douglas that the film’s production has begun. The film is currently anticipated for a 2022 release date, and the actor stated that it was time to regrow Pym’s signature facial hair in preparation for the role.
While Marvel‘s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has no release date yet, fans can look forward to the film hitting the big screen soon enough. Are you excited? What do you think will happen when Kang the Conqueror gets in the mix? Let Your Geek Sideshow and tell us your theories in the comments!
