Among the many, many announcements shared by Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, one of the most exciting announcements was the third Ant-Man 3 film.
Titled Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the film has Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Michael Douglas back to reprise their roles. However, the newest addition to the cast is Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies, Freaky) which comes as a bit of a shock since MCU fans have already met grown-up Cassie Lang in Avengers: Endgame. Perhaps the actress couldn’t return? We’re not sure.
In addition to Kathryn Newton, Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country) has been cast as Kang the Conqueror who may serve as a reoccurring villain within the MCU.
You can check out the official announcement below.
