Ant-Man and Kang meet in the Quantum Realm
Kang the Conqueror is a brand-new addition to the live-action Marvel roster that will play an important part in Quantumania as well as the future of the MCU. The film’s upcoming release will see Kang and Ant-Man (Rudd) battle in the Quantum Realm as they both search for a way out of the time-warping dimension. This is believed to be the idea of Rudd in the original Ant-Man film. Kang’s power and features are being praised in the buildup to Quantumania and he has gotten bigger for the role as well as for his role in Creed III.
Quantumania is the first movie in Phase 5 of the MCU, with Rudd and Evangeline Lilly returning as Ant-Man as well as the Wasp, respectively. Newton portrays Scott Lang’s daughter, Cassie, while Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Bill Murray also feature. Quantumania includes a variety of post-credit sequences, with some viewers hinting that there may be a major reveal during those scenes.
