Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantumania will introduce the MCU audience to a new, big bad villain. For that reason and more, producer Stephen Broussard said the crew behind this film is trying to shed previous stereotypes about the Ant-Man movies.
Speaking to Total Film, Broussard said that previous Ant-Man films have normally followed major Avengers films and were seen like a palate cleanser. With Quantumania in mind, they are looking to buck this trend, and want that movie to be very important to the future of the MCU.
In the days following the Avengers movies, people had pounced for a cocktail or a baritone, said Stephen Broussard. If we had a chance at last part three, we would like the film to be large and look at the future of the University of Nebraska.
Instead of following a huge ensemble film, Quantumania now acts as the film to set the stage for what’s going on, and also introduces the next big villain to the MCU, while then introduces the Quantum Realm to the audience. According to Broussard, they wanted to feel like a place fans had always wanted, and that same way they also populated it.
He says he is like a place you haven’t been to in the U.S. There are many men and women, as well as the world’s and political world’s and history.
Now it’s possible to introduce Kang the Conqueror to the MCU, a character that Broussard days is very powerful, and a character that will continue to show up in other stories.
The Wasp, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will start on February 17, 2023.
