The following post contains SPOILERS for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Proceed with caution or be banished forever to the tiny universe known as the Quantum Realm.
I am trying to imagine a world where someone walks into Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania totally cold, having never read a Marvel comic or watched a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. They would be utterly, totally, completely baffled. Somewhere out there in the multiverse, there must be a place where such a person exists. I feel bad for them.
Even Marvel veterans who have kept up with 15 years of MCU movies and TV shows and know their comic-book lore might be a little lost at times during Quantumania. This third Ant-Man movie is as much of a sequel to Avengers: Endgame and the Loki TV series as it is two the prior Ant-Man films. It continues the adventures of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and introduces the world to Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), a Marvel villain with an impossibly complicated backstory who is set to become the Avengers’ next major adversary through Phase 5 and 6 of the MCU, including the upcoming Avengers: The Kang Dynasty film that’s due in theaters in 2025.
Quantumania not only references Kang’s comic book past, it also contains a ton of obscure references and hidden details from throughout the Ant-Man franchise and the rest of the MCU. If you missed any of them, here are 15 of the film’s coolest Easter eggs:
