Ant-Man 3 New Trailer Released By Marvel Studios


Ant-Man 3 (Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania) is coming out pretty soon, and Marvel Studios has released the movie’s latest trailer, and it’s pretty darn good. You can check out the trailer for yourselves below.

The trailer really makes it look like this movie is going to be pretty darn epic. I also feel as though the Marvel Cinematic Universe has finally managed to fill the Thanos-shaped void.

Jonathan Majors is going to be playing Kang in the movie. He played a version of the role in Loki, but it looks like this version is going to really mean business.

This all comes after the movie’s director, Peyton Reed, revealed that he wanted Ant-Man 3 to be an epic Marvel movie, and not just a “palate cleanser”, which the other Ant-Man movies kind of have been up to this point.

Here’s what Reed had to say on the matter during an interview with Entertainment Weekly ahead of the release of Ant-Man 3:

People felt like, Oh, these are fun little palate cleansers after a gigantic Avengers movie. For this third one, I said, ‘I don’t want to be the palate cleanser anymore. I want to be the big Avengers movie.’

This new trailer really showcases that aspect of the movie. It certainly doesn’t look like a palate cleanser. It seems as though the stakes are huge, and Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd) is going to have to go to extremes to save his friends, family and possibly the fate of the MCU.

Here’s what Reed had to say about Kang the Conqueror in this upcoming Marvel movie:

I grew up a real Marvel comics nerd, and there are a handful of antagonists in the Marvel comics universe who are all-timers. Loki, obviously. Doctor Doom from the Fantastic Four. And Kang the Conqueror. In conversations with Kevin Feige and Marvel, it was like, I want to put Ant-Man and Wasp up against a really formidable villain in this movie, and so we’re doing Kang the Conqueror.

In the comics, Kang has dominion over time, he’s a time traveller. His situation is a little bit different in this movie, which I won’t spoil for you, but he’s someone who, [while] we live very linear lives, from childhood to death, Kang doesn’t exist that way. It struck me as interesting to take the tiniest Avengers — in some people’s minds maybe the least powerful Avengers — and put them up against the most powerful force in the multiverse.

So, yes. It really seems as though Majors’ Kang the Conqueror is going to be the MCU’s big villain from now on, which I am very much OK with. The MCU has needed a properly menacing villain.

Since Avengers: Endgame, there’s been a Thanos-shaped hole in the MCU, and each movie that has been released since has felt like filler. Ant-Man 3 is going to sort that problem out, at least, it seems as though it will.

Ant-Man 3 sees Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Together, with Hope’s parents Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (played by Michelle Pfeiffer), the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible.

Jonathan Majors joins the adventure as Kang. Peyton Reed returns to direct the film; Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard produce.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania hits cinemas in the United States and the United Kingdom on February 17th, 2023.
