Marvel has finally released the first look trailer at “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” along with a poster.
While all of the attention recently has been on “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the next film on the Marvel schedule is “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” which hits theaters on February 17, 2023.
That’s less than four months away.
In the film, which officially kicks off Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, partners Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp, post “Avengers: Endgame.”
Together, with Hope’s parents Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible.
Scott’s daughter Cassie (now played by Marvel newcomer Kathryn Newton), looks to be taking on a supersuit of her own in this film. Assisting them all again is FBI Agent Jimmy Woo (Randall Park), last seen in the Disney+ series “WandaVision.”
Jonathan Majors joins the adventure as the big bad Kang. A variant of his was seen in season one of the “Loki” series, and the character will continue on at least through 2025’s “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” (which will be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton).
This marks the third Ant-Man film, and director Peyton Reed returns to finish the trilogy. Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard produce.
Reed teased the release of the trailer on his Twitter account at 2am with this cryptic tweet:
Those in attendance at the Marvel panel at this year’s D23 Expo already got a glimpse at some of the footage in this new trailer, but for the rest of us, we finally get a first look.
Set to the strain of Elton John’s “Goodby Yellow Brick Road,” Scott muses about his life so far.
“I used to ask myself a lot of questions. ‘Scott…you’re an ex-con…how are you an Avenger? That doesn’t make sense.’ But everywhere I go, people tell me the same thing…”
A cafe owner interrupts his reverie to shout “Thank you, Spider-Man!”
Yup still getting no respect.
It’s not long until the action starts, when the family discovers Cassie’s experiments have sent a signal into the Quantum Realm…something that alarms Janet greatly…and for good reason.
And was that Bill Murray??

And being the inclusive company they are, Marvel also made a version of the trailer for the ants to watch:
Along with the trailer, a poster has been released, that interestingly focuses on Kang, who seems to have Ant-Man (or the stick figure equivalent) in his hand:
Are you excited to see the film when it comes out? Let us know in the comments. I gotta tell you…my excitement level is about an eleven right now.
