Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Trailer - 7 easter eggs you may have missed in the new trailer
He Who Remains once said, "if you think I am evil, wait until you meet my variants."
As the world waits for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to close the door on Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans received a taste of Phase 5
first full-length trailer for the third installment in the Ant-Man franchise is here, so we decided to look at easy-to-miss easter eggs.
The third installment in the franchise, Ant-Man, and the Wasp: Quantumania will be the first movie in the fifth phase of the MCU and will also be directly linked to the next Avenger movie The Kang Dynasty.
starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Kathryn Newton, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Michael Douglas.
The project will be the biggest Ant-Man movie to date, with Peyton Reed returning to direct making him the second director to complete an MCU trilogy along with Jon Watts (Spider-Man).
In a fun little reference to the first movie, we see Scott Lang receiving an employee of the century award and shaking hands with the manager of the Baskin-Robbins who fired him.
in the first movie, Lang was fired from his job because he did not disclose the fact that he was an ex-convict.
We get our first glimpse of of the city of Chronopolis, which is ruled Kang. In the comics, is a multiversal city ruled by Kang the Conqueror. It is a city of limitless time and the center of Kang's conquest.
3. The Rings of Power
one of the biggest eater eggs in the trailer is the giant rings of power we see in the city of Chronopolis, the rings are very similar to the Ten Rings used by Shang-Chi and the one used by Kamala Khan in MS. Marvel.
We do know that the rings possess the ability to travel between worlds so they are most likely the power source that allows Kang's capital to travel between dimensions easily.
4. Heart of Forever
We also get our first look at the Heart of Forever, which is a device powered by a mysterious orb that gives Kang's city of Chronopolis the to travel in and out of limbo aka Time travel.
It was revealed at SDCC this year that this device was stolen from Kang and he is desperately trying to get it back.
5. A Satellite for the Quantum Realm
Kathryn Newton makes her MCU debut as a recast Cassie Lang. She introduces what is sure to be the inciting incident of the movie as she seems to have created "a satellite for deep space but... Quantum."
Janet Van-Dyme is immediately skeptical of this, but by the time she commands Cassie to turn off her "signal to the Quantum Realm," it is too late. Cassie, Janet, Scott, Hope, and Hank Pym get sucked into the Quantum Realm and split up.
Powering Cassie's machine is this blue orb that has a visual identity that appears throughout the trailer. As the team moves into the Quantum Realm and Jonathan Majors' Kang is shown, his ships and tech seem to be powered by a similar blue orb.
6. A Secret Universe Beneath Ours
Another plot point revealed in the trailer is Janet Van-Dyne's fear of the Quantum Realm. she spent an unknown amount of time in the microscopic world and the moment Cassie suggested they were sending out a signal, Janet was terrified.
She proclaims that "there is something she never told" Hank and Hope about her experiences, and it is easy to assume it is Kang-related. She also states that they have been pulled into a "secret universe beneath ours," which brings a multiverse vibe to the Quantum Realm.
This secret universe is scattered with unique landscapes, monstrous creatures, a bar, and a gang of seeming enemies looking to start trouble. These characters will surely be side-mission obstacles for the heroes and a great opportunity for action scenes.
7. What's it going to be, Ant-Man?"
The trailer's final shot reveals the best look yet at Kang the Conquerer, played by Jonathan Majors. He needs Scott Lang's help and is seemingly holding Cassie Lang hostage to get it. The scars on his face replicate the steel blue skin mask of the comics and bring a very intimidating presence to this already very intimidating character.
He Who Remains once said, "if you think I am evil, wait until you meet my variants." Audiences will not have to wait much longer as Ant-Man and The Wasp Quantumania hits theaters on February 17, 2023.
