Ant-Man 3 hit cinema screens on February 16, 2023. It received mixed reviews from critics and is one of the worst-performing Marvel movies on Rotten Tomatoes.

If you’d like to make that call for yourself, the good news is that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is set to stream on Disney+ from Wednesday, May 17. The film will be available from 5:00 pm AEST. 

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – What’s it about?

If you’re unfamiliar with the story up until this point, Scott Lang is a well-meaning ex-con who becomes the tiny but mighty hero, Ant-Man, after stealing a super suit that allows him to shrink at will. From there he gets back on the straight and narrow by helping the suit’s creator, Hank Pym, and his daughter, Hope Van Dyne (aka the Wasp), develop their Pym particle technology.

In the subsequent films, Scott fought alongside the Avengers, got lost in the Quantum Realm and learned he can not only shrink real small, but also grow real big.

So what’s in store for the (Ant) man this time?

Marvel revealed in its synopsis that Scott and his family will become trapped in the dangerous land of the Quantum Realm, saying:

Super Hero partners Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and The Wasp. Together, with Hope’s parents Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, 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.

Another big part of the film is Scott’s relationship with his daughter Cassie, who plays a much larger role in the movie this time around, perhaps even scoring a superhero suit for herself.

Trailer time

The trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania reveals a few more plot details.

You can also check out the eerie poster below.

A further ‘Special Look’ at the film was revealed at CCXP in Brazil. It’s mainly a recap of all of Ant-Man’s endeavours so far in the MCU, but there’s a peek at the new movie at the end.

A further trailer was released on January 10, giving us a lot more story to go off.

This latest trailer also gives us a look at the MCU’s rendition of MODOK (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing), a long-awaited fan favourite character.

If you couldn’t tell from the trailer, Jonathan Majors is back in a big way in Ant-Man 3, playing the terrifying villain Kang the Conquerer.

Kang’s arrival was first teased in the season finale of Loki, when He Who Remains was killed, thus allowing his more dangerous variants to escape into the Multiverse. Kang is one of those and, as Marvel comics readers will know, he has a massive impact.

Kang is set to be the next big villain after Thanos in the MCU, with the next Avengers movie even named The Kang Dynasty.

Who is in the cast lineup?
