Your favorite superhero is back! and no, we aren’t talking about Spider-Man or Captain America. We are talking about that friendly superhero who has been a comic relief with some of the coolest superpowers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. it is none other than Ant-Man.
Some would say he has been an underdog of sorts, but we believe Ant-Man has managed to secure a place for himself in the Avengers as well as the cinematic universe as a whole. There’s no wonder he will have just as many films as Iron Man or Captain America.
Apart from Ant-Man in 2015, and Ant-Man and the Wasp in 2018, we also saw this beloved superhero appear in Captain America: Civil War and Endgame, which was his last appearance in the MCU, until now. Fans knew Marvel had more in store for this character, but they were thrilled to find out that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania would be on their screens sooner than a lot of other Marvel projects.
Marvel is big on keeping things under wraps and while we understand that, we can’t help but dig around a little. So, here’s everything we know about Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania:

What Will The Plot of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Be?
Before we dive into the plot of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, we must explain the quantum realm, because that is exactly what this movie will be about. The quantum realm is based on the microverse in Marvel Comics, which are different dimensions that can only be accessed through subatomic particles, or with the help of shrinking.
Those who have watched the MCU films already know that Ant-Man was trapped in the quantum realm for five years before he reappeared in Endgame. Now, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will focus on the quantum realm.
In the movie, Scott Lang, and his daughter Cassie, along with Hope van Dyne and her parents, Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne find themselves in the quantum realm. Now, the group must explore this realm and find their way out, but on the way, they find themselves interacting with different creatures along with those Hope and Scott have previously come in contact with. Just like any Marvel film, this will be an adventure too, but of a different kind.
As of late, the MCU has been exploring the multiverse and one of its facets is different dimensions, and under that sub-category falls the quantum realm. So, we can see Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania following in the steps of the multiverse, but in a different direction than usual.
The Cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
Lucky for the fans, most of the cast will be reprising their roles for the upcoming movie Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Most importantly, Paul Rudd will be returning as Ant-Man. Rudd has managed to capture the hearts of millions of people with his charming smile and perfect comedy timing.
So, no one could possibly replace Paul Rudd in the MCU and we are sure the creators agree as well. In this movie, the cast will be as follows:
- Paul Rudd as Scott Lang
- Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne
- Kathryn Newton as Cassie Lang
- Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne
- Michael Douglas as Hank Pym
- Randall Park as Jimmy Woo
- Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror
It will be in interesting to see Jonathan Majors back in the MCU after his debut in the Loki series. Along with him, Kathryn Newton will also be joining the cast as Cassie, who has now grown up.
We are certain that these actors will work well together and their characters will create an interesting mix for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Marvel movies usually take a while before releasing and there can be gaps of a certain number of years between these movies, but when they do release, they are always worth the wait.
