Marvel has confirmed the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania release date. The third entry in Marvel’s Ant-Man series starring Paul Rudd will release on February 17, 2022. It was revealed in Marvel’s Phase 4 trailer that re-confirmed several dates for the next several years for films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will once again share top billing as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne/Wasp, respectively. Additionally, Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer will be back as well, reprising their roles. Michael Peña and David Dastmalchian seem likely to return but have not been confirmed, while rapper T.I. will not be returning. Kathryn Newton will be replacing Emma Fuhrmann, who played a teenage Cassie in Avengers: Endgame, and Abby Ryder Fortson, who played the child-version of Cassie in Ant-Man and Ant-Man and The Wasp.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania will feature Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror. Kang isn’t a typical foe of Ant-Man, but he often fights with the Avengers. Kang hails from the far future, and his comic book incarnation has repeatedly attempted to conquer the present. This could set up future events in the MCU.
Peyton Reed will return to direct Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, which will be written by Rick & Morty‘s Jeff Loveness and open in theaters on February 17, 2022.
