'Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania' trailer introduces Kang the Conqueror
Marvel Studios has unveiled the first trailer for the highly-awaited Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, starring Paul Rudd and Jonathan Majors. The film is a part of Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase V and has been described as "darker in tone." The superhero movie will focus on the battle between Ant-Man's team and Kang the Conqueror. It will get released on February 17, 2023.
Why does this story matter?
- Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is MCU's 31st movie and a sequel to Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
- Since these movies play a significant role in the MCU and are loved by the audience, Ant-Man 3 is also expected to woo cinephiles similarly.
- Though the film's future was slightly shrouded in uncertainty due to COVID-19, everything is now back on track!
Clip offers a nuanced, deep look at the Quantum Realm
The trailer sets up Kang's role as "the next big MCU villain after Thanos." The footage also focuses on Ant-Man's team's return to the Quantum Realm to embark on another adventure, which involves locking horns with Kang. Apart from an in-depth look at the mysterious Quantum Realm, another noteworthy aspect is the way the trailer balances somber tones with MCU's usual goofiness and humor.
