Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be here in less than a month! On February 17, 2023, the third Ant-Man movie directed by Peyton Reed will arrive in theaters. With new trailers and character posters still being released, the time is ripe for speculation galore! Sadly, these seven new Quantumania character posters do not include M.O.D.O.K. (Corey Stoll). However, they feature plenty of other tantalizing hints about what’s in store for the titular superhero duo when the movie arrives next month!
Quantumania Character Posters
Each of the Quantumania character posters adopts a similar format. In the foreground, a miniature version of Ant-Man and The Wasp appears against a bright light. A close-up character shot anchors the poster. Behind the character are fragmented and rippling images.
The first character poster features Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man. In previous trailers, Ant-Man is shown with many other versions of himself. While these could be Variants, they could also be another Quantum Realm phenomenon.
The next of the Quantumania character posters features Evangeline Lilly reprising the role of Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp. However, this character poster seems to include an image of Hope’s mother, Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), in the background. Perhaps this hints that the relationship between the two long-estranged (then blipped) family members will be explored in this threequel.
The next of the Quantumania character posters spotlight Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton). Like Ant-Man and the Wasp, Lang seems to be wearing a Pym particle suit. This could hint that the character will become the superhero Stature in this movie. This could further imply the impending arrival of the Young Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Five!
Kang the Conqueror
Of all the Quantumania character posters, the one featuring Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) could be the most suggestive. In part, this is because we were introduced to a Variant of the character, He Who Remains, in the season 1 finale of Loki, “For All Time. Always.” That Variant was dispatched by the Loki Variant called Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), clearing the way for Kang’s arrival.
This Variant of the character is physically differentiated from He Who Remains by a pair of scars over each of his eyes. These scars evoke the character’s classic Marvel Comics appearance. Do the multiple images of Kang’s visage behind the character on this poster hint at more Kang Variants in Quantumania? And this could this lead to Iron Lad?
The next of the Quantumania character posters features Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. Some of the images of Pym’s face that are included in the background of the poster look very menacing.
An antagonistic Variant of Pym appeared in What If…? season 1, “What If… The Earth Lost Its Mightiest Heroes?” In that episode, Pym became a serial killer known as Yellowjacket. Could we see this (or a similar) Variant in Quantumania?
Janet Van Dyne
The next poster features Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne. Fully introduced in Ant-Man and the Wasp, this character has experience surviving the Quantum Realm. However, her poster reveals very little of her role in the movie. But this could also mean she plays a key narrative role.
The last of the Quantumania character posters gives us another look at Krylar (Bill Murray). This obscure Marvel Comics villain is an arms dealer in the Quantum Realm.
In the comics, Krylar recovers and refurbished ancient weapons. This could hint at how he might relate to Kang and the Quantumania plot. But that’s assuming he bears a close resemblance to the character that inspired him. This is not necessarily a given (see also: Moon Knight season 1’s antagonist).
What theories do you hope prove accurate when Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania arrives on February 17, 2023?
Tickets for Quantumania are now available for pre-purchase.
