A new teaser for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania reveals what our titular hero, Scott Lang, has been up to following the tragic events of Avengers: Endgame.
The upcoming film is all set to mark the beginning of Phase 5 of the MCU, which will kick off with Ant-Man exploring the Quantum Realm. But this time we also have Cassie Lang, Scott’s daughter, joining his father in the adventure. The father-daughter dynamic will be explored significantly in the film.
After two trailers, Marvel Studios has released yet another teaser for Ant-Man 3, exploring what Scott Lang has been up to after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Check out the trailer here –
Paul Rudd mentions in the trailer that the book titled “Look Out for the Little Guy” will release alongside the much-awaited film. This explains that after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Scott Lang became a hero in the eyes of the people and had been focused on telling his story via his autobiography.
Though Ant-Man was always considered to be a less important hero compared to other big shots like Iron Man and Captain America, the role of the Quantum Realm in Endgame proved that he is way more important than we thought he was.
Naturally, when people found out about the role, he played in bringing down Thanos, he gained his own followers and his image in the MCU changed completely. Though we don’t know much about Quantumania’s plot yet, it seems like Scott Lang has been enjoying the fame.
We are yet to find out if Scott maintained contact with the rest of the Avengers or their allies, but he has returned to his own comfort zone within the franchise. Moreover, we will also see how Scott’s popularity affects Cassie, his teenage daughter.
The head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, previously referred to Ant-Man 3 as “peak MCU”. So naturally, people have high hopes from it especially since recent releases of the MCU have not been doing too well, except perhaps Wakanda Forever.
However, Ant-Man 3 is extremely important for the MCU in the long run, as it will set up Kang as the main villain for Phase 5, before the Avengers assemble once again to fight him in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
