While Ant-Man is best known for being small, the latest trailer for Quantumania, the next installment of the multi-generational, inter-dimensional Ant-Man and the Wasp series, has just released a new trailer showcasing how Scott Lang’s new foe is bigger than anything he’s faced before. (Metaphorically speaking.)

Seriously, the trailer is all about Jonathan Majors’ Kang, and how Paul Rudd’s Scott gets quantumly entangled with the villain. There’s a ton going on—including the first look at MODOK!—but just watch it:

It wouldn’t be an Ant-Man movie if Scott didn’t make some kind of mistake, and in Quantumania, he’s clearly going to help Kang in return for getting back the five years he lost with his daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton) during the Blip. It’s an understandable motivation, but given Kang’s name is in the title of that upcoming new Avengers movie, it’s pretty clear he doesn’t have the best intentions—like, “conquest of all space-time”-type intentions, and this trailer reveals Kang definitely has the power, resources, and forces to do just that. Plus: MODOK!

While Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe may have been more about introductions and place setting, this official kick-off to Phase 5 is ready to bring the unimaginable scope of the quantum realm and the multiverse together in ways the heroes of the MCU aren’t ready for, but that audiences are obviously clamoring for.


Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will also bring back Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, and Michelle Pfieffer as Janet Van Dyne. Directed by Peyton Reed, who helmed the first two Ant-Man films, the movie premieres on February 17.
