Ant-Man and the Wasp is clearly on a path to become the lowest grossing movie in MCU Phase 3. It took a week to cross $100 million marks at the Box office. But it introduced us to the mysterious dimension that we all wanted to know more about.
Quantum realm is
“The reality where all concepts of time and space become irrelevant as you shrink for all eternity. This means that if Ant-Man can shrink down to the smallest of the small, he will enter this nothing, this non-reality. All of time and space will be open to him. He could literally change the universe around him Dr. Manhattan-style. And he could traverse time at will.”
Feige said that it is a multi-layered dimension, hence deeper you go, more the laws of time and space will bind you. Here’s what Feige said:
“Ultimately you wanna have an emotional reunion with Michael Douglas, an emotional reunion with Evangeline Lily and our first instinct had always been specifically now Michelle Pfeiffer from that first movie. It felt like it should be somebody who’s the right age. As opposed to Michael Douglas with somebody who has not aged. Or Evangeline Lilly connecting with somebody who’s not aged. That just adds another layer of sort of sci-fi weirdness.”
In the post-credits of the movie, Lang went into Quantum realm one more time to collect healing particles and then he lost contact with Team Pym as they turned into dust post-Thanos snap. Subsequently, it appeared on screen that Ant-Man and Wasp shall return with a “Question mark”.
The director Peyton Reed addressed this and said that there were a lot of easter-eggs that may have been missed by the audience. Here’s what he said:
“Yeah, there’s a lot of little-hidden things. I mean, definitely as you go through Hank Pym’s laboratory, on the practical set and then some of the stuff we added later digitally, there are a lot of weird, little Easter eggs and things. And then as we kind of go further down into the Quantum Realm in this movie, there definitely is some things to sort of look for. That was a challenge, the Quantum Realm, ’cause it really could be infinite. It could be anything. And figuring out how much of our story took place in the Quantum Realm and particularly like designing that last act that cross-cuts between the chase and the Quantum Realm. But there’s stuff to look for in there definitely.”
He told Verge:
“At first, it really struck us as funny. I mean, there were always the James Bond movies [that would tease the next film]. ‘James Bond will return in For Your Eyes Only.’ So we wanted to do a riff on that comedically, and really play into the mystery. It struck me as funny in the body of our movie, and then it also struck me as funny in the larger MCU sense of audience members hanging on every thread of any piece of information, as they should, in these movies. ‘What’s going to happen? What’s going to happen to my heroes?’ And so it was just a fun thing to play with the audience with.”
Basically, he was toying with the idea if Ant-Man and the Wasp would indeed appear in Avengers 4 or not. Here’s what Evangeline Lilly aka Wasp said:
“In Ant-Man and the Wasp, they are trying everything in their power to safely enter the Quantum Realm and return back from it because they have evidence from the first film that Scott Lang was able to do that. If he can do it, why can’t we? If we do succeed in Ant-Man and the Wasp, then that does open a whole entire new multiverse to enter into and play around in,”
The movie has an incredible cast of actors including Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/ Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne/ Wasp, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michelle Pfieffer as Janet Van Dyne, Lawrence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, Judy Greer as Maggie (Scott’s former wife), Michael Pena as Luis, Abby Ryder Fortson as Cassie (Scott’s daughter), Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch, Hannah John-Kammen as Ghost, Randall Park as Jimmy Woo.
The movie is currently running in the theatres. The official movie synopsis reads:
“Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy”.
