While the Guardians Of The Galaxy revealed the cosmic side of Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Strange explored the existence of the Marvel Multiverse. Stephen Strange’s exploration of the different worlds that exist in the MCU further gave movie fans awareness of how big it was. But before Strange blew the whole lid on the multiverse, Ant-Man gave a slice of the Quantum Realm, an alternate dimension that can be accessed when someone shrinks to microscopic levels.
The sequel, Ant-Man, and The Wasp have been rumored to feature more of the Quantum Realm, but they will not be the only ones. Upcoming Marvel newbie Captain Marvel will reportedly be the next hero to explore the realm.
The Quantum Realm is known as the Microverse in the Marvel comics universe, but the two function in largely the same way.This little reveal came courtesy of Dr. Spiros Michalakis, a quantum physicist who consulted on Ant-Man during his interview with Inverse.
“ This is exciting for the future. There are different ways that some of these ideas appear on-screen in a few years. Not just for Ant-Man, but also for Captain Marvel and all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
Captain Marvel has yet to debut in Marvel Cinematic Universe and there have been speculations that the new Marvel may not be exactly like the one that is seen in the comics. Captain Marvel, however, does have a long history that the MCU has the privilege to adapt into. The hero has been expected to make her debut in Avengers: Infinity War, although it’s doubtful that we will see a fully powered up Captain in the movie. Her standalone movie is expected to delve deeper into her origins. Ant-Man and The Wasp will, in the meantime, explore the Realm. In the comics, the Quantum Realm is the microscopic universe which consists of dozens of the world that Ant-Man explores and encounters different new characters.
