Marvel recently revealed the title of the next Avengers movie — Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, arriving in 2025 — but viewers will first meet the titular dynast, Kang the Conqueror, in next year's Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.
The Ant-Man threequel marks the official kickoff to Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne/Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), along with Scott's daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton), Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), are inadvertently sucked into the Quantum Realm. Set to Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," the first trailer teases strange new worlds and alien creatures.
In the Quantum Realm, the family of superheroes finally comes face-to-face with Jonathan Majors' Kang. (Majors made his MCU debut in season 1 of Disney+'s Loki, playing an ominous Kang variant called He Who Remains.) "This place, it isn't what you think," Majors' Kang intones in the trailer. "I can get you home and give you more time — if you help me. So, what's it gonna be, Ant-Man?"
Like the first two Ant-Man installments, Quantumania hails from director Peyton Reed. The script was written by Jeff Loveness (who is also set to pen Avengers: The Kang Dynasty).
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania hits theaters on Feb. 17, 2023. Watch the trailer below.
