Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania drops first trailer and sucks viewers into a world of wonder and questions

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has released its first trailer, giving fans a taste of the next phase in the MCU.

Like most trailers, the Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer sparked a lot of excitement and raised important questions like:

  • What happened to Janet Van Dyne in the Quantum Realm?
  • Who does Bill Murray play?
  • What does Kang want?

The Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer

The trailer continues the trend seen in Phase 4 projects, which shows the world after the Avengers save the universe from Thanos.

A highlight includes Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) enjoying his new celebrity status, but he is still mistaken for Spider-Man.

However, things suddenly get worse for Scott and the Ant-Man family.

Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton) experiments with a way to communicate with the Quantum Realm.

Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) tries to stop her efforts, aware of the danger that this entails.

Before they can stop the experiment, the family is sucked into the Quantum Realm.

The first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania shows that most of the film takes place in the Quantum Realm.

We also meet Kang the Conqueror (albeit a variant of the Loki series), played by Jonathan Majors.

The trailer also shows Cassie Lang joining her father in a fight.

Bill Murray

Veteran comedian Bill Murray makes his MCU debut as the mysterious Krylar.

Krylar’s inclusion in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania surprises long-time fans, considering he only appeared once in the comics.

Surprisingly, his appearance wasn’t even in an Ant-Man comic but in The Incredible Hulk.

However, Bill Murray’s appearance raises many questions about Janet Van Dyne’s past.

His connection with her will provide details of her stay in the Quantum Realm all those years.

Kang the Conqueror

Jonathan Majors debuted in the MCU as a variant of Kang called He Who Remains.

Although his character is the least evil of his variants, Kang’s appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania promises something sinister for the Ant-Man family.

In the trailer, Kang offers to help Ant-Man return to his world if he helps him get his hands on a mysterious object.

Their heist could open the door to a possible Phase 5 showdown that ends with Kang facing off the new Avengers roster.

Janet Van Dyne and the Quantum Realm

Janet Van Dyne was trapped in the Quantum Realm for the first two films.

Her time in the Quantum Realm is filled with secrets that not even Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) knows.

When she discovers Cassie’s attempts, she tries to stop her from making a big mistake.

The film explores Janet Van Dyne’s time in the Quantum Realm.
