The Disney Investor’s Meeting did its job and then some hyping up everything coming from Walt Disney Studios over the next few years, with Marvel Studios coming as the grand finale. Kevin Feige gave fans more information than ever before with four new trailers, official casting announcements, new project confirmations, and so much more.
Part of this news concerned the upcoming third Ant-Man movie, which was finally given an official title and a couple of exciting casting additions.
Kevin Feige officially announced that the third film in the Ant-Man series will be titled Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
The film will see the returns of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, and Michelle Pfieffer as Janet Van Dyne. Katheryn Newton will be taking on the role of Cassie Lang, and Jonathan Majors will officially be playing Kang the Conqueror.

WHAT THIS MEANS
Although it was expected that the third Ant-Man movie would dive even further into the Quantum Realm and expand from the first two movies, this announcement is still as exciting as ever. The consensus was that the four main cast members would return to their roles, and hopefully, they would be joined by Luis and crew, but the new cast members are already stealing the show.
Katheryn Newton will become the third actress to take on the role of Cassie Lang, and it will be interesting to find out how long after the events of Avengers: Endgame this will take place as she hopefully becomes a hero in her own right. The rumors of Jonathan Majors playing Kang the Conqueror have also come true, officially introducing one of the most powerful villains in all of Marvel Comics to the big screen for the first time.
This new film should be absolutely monumental along with the rest of Phase 4, and it will undoubtedly be as grand of a finale as expected for the tiniest Avenger.
There is no confirmed release date for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaina.
