Ant-Man 3 is set to revolutionize the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) with its exploration of the Multiverse and Quantum Realm.
It’s important to note that the Multiverse has always existed in the MCU. MCU until Loki was focused only on Earth-616. But with Sylvie killing He Who Remains, things are different.
Marvel Studios VP of Production & Development Teases Multiverse’s Role in Ant-Man 3
Marvel Studios VP of Production & Development, Stephen Broussard, reveals in a press release that the Multiverse will play a significant role in the upcoming sequel.
Here’s what he had to say:
“One of our philosophies that we’ve always applied at the studio is to just go back to character, and to root it in character, and the science-fiction and the world-building is fun but ultimately it’s window dressing to the characters who are on this journey. I think as long as we never forget that this is a story about a father and his daughter reconnecting, which essentially is what this film is, then the headiness of the Multiverse, the headiness of the Quantum Realm sorts itself out because you only need to understand that it’s a father-and-daughter story.”
Meanwhile, Director Peyton Reed expresses excitement at the prospect of pitting the seemingly weak Avenger, Scott Lang, against the powerful Kang the Conqueror in the Multiverse.
Expectations are high for the Multiverse’s presence in Ant-Man 3, as Marvel Studios has dubbed Phase 4 through Phase 6 as the “Multiverse Saga” and Kang as the overarching villain. Fans anticipate a deeper dive into Kang’s abilities to navigate and manipulate the Multiverse, as seen in the comics.
Ant-Man 3: Multiverse and Quantum Realm Take Center Stage
While it remains uncertain if the movie will introduce other dimensions or multiversal heroes, the Quantum Realm could open the door for such possibilities. The recent trailer hints at the possibility of multiple Scott Langs teaming up to stop Kang, but it’s unclear if these are different heroes from across the Multiverse or if Kang is utilizing his powers in conjunction with the Quantum Realm.
The Quantum Realm exists at a microscopical level and is a different world. But it does have ties to different points of time. This means that when Scott Lang gets out of the Quantum Realm, a lot of time may have passed in the real world.
Antman and The Wasp Quantumania may not explore Multiverse the way it will explore the Quantum Realm.
Kathryn Newton Reveals New Detail About Quantum Realm in Ant-Man 3: “You Have to Drink Some Goo”
In a recent interview with Fandango, Kathryn Newton who plays the role of Cassie, revealed a new detail about the Quantum Realm that has left audiences scratching their heads. According to Newton, when characters arrive in the Quantum Realm, they must drink a special goo in order to communicate with the inhabitants of this strange and mysterious place.
“Well, when you arrive, you have to drink some goo. And then you can get along and talk to people,”
Newton said. “It’s goo… It’s like red goo,” she added, turning to her co-star, Paul Rudd, and saying, “I got the red goo, you got the green goo.”
Rudd, however, was tight-lipped about the goo, stating, “I don’t know.” Newton continued to explain this world-building detail, saying, “They get a beverage, you know. We have 7-Eleven, they have goo.”
When asked whether the goo has an unpleasant taste, Newton confessed: “I think it tasted great. And then you can understand everybody and they can understand you.”
This revelation about the Quantum Realm’s goo has left fans wondering what other strange and unexpected elements will be featured in the film. The Quantum Realm is already known for its weird and cartoonish appearance, and the idea of drinking different colored goo in order to communicate with its inhabitants sounds just as strange.
Despite the oddity, one thing is for sure, the Quantum Realm is set to be a key aspect of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and will undoubtedly play a significant role in the larger MCU narrative. Fans eagerly await to see how this sticky situation unfolds on the big screen.
Regardless, Ant-Man 3 serves as the first step towards more Kang stories, leading up to the 2025 release of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. With a focus on the Multiverse and Quantum Realm, Ant-Man 3 promises to be a thrilling and exciting addition to the MCU and fans eagerly await to see how the story unfolds and how it connects to the larger MCU narrative.
