Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Theory: Scott Lang Will Become the Messenger Who Warns MCU Heroes of Kang and the Upcoming Secret Wars, Form the New Avengers

Ant-Man aka Scott Lang could be the harbinger of one very bad piece of news for the Avengers, one that signals the death of at least several of the heroes in the group! In the third Ant-Man movie, Scott Lang will be going on an adventure with Hope and her family, exploring the vast microscopic universe of the Quantum Realm, but sinister news awaits.

Avengers: Endgame surely bought a tear to the faces of many, we saw our favorite iron-suited billionaire Tony Stark as well as the beautiful spy Natasha Romanoff killed off to save the world from Thanos. But they’re not the only Avengers who might meet their demise soon. Here’s why.

Ant-Man Gets The Job Of Being The Doom Messenger, Again

You might think Thanos was the final piece of the puzzle that the Avengers had to solve to save the world (and the universe), but the show must go on, and there’s definitely a much bigger threat than Thanos in the MCU! To start things off, Kang The Conqueror will be appearing in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and although he won’t just begin blazing his guns out, he surely gives a fair warning to our mighty heroes.

A little background check, Kang is basically a power-hungry villain in the Marvel comics, who plans on conquering each and every multiverse possible. He’s going to be played by Jonathan Majors in the upcoming Ant-Man movie, but that version of Kang will be the calm and friendly one, not the one who wants to bring his rule to your world.

Regardless, the theory of Scott Lang being the savior yet again comes from this little conversation that Kang and Lang had in the leaked trailer (no video, unfortunately) for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. 

Lang meets Kang in an unknown location, a conversation ensues between them where Lang is told by Kang that for everything that Lang has in his life, Kang already knows the end of it. It’s no surprise to hear that line come from the new Thanos – level threat for the MCU, who upon being trifled by Lang reaffirming his status as an Avenger, replies with “have I killed you before?”, pretty bone-chilling.

A normal person hearing this would think that there’s no way Ant-Man’s going to end Kang then and there because at the end of the day, Kang has conquered multiple universes, so obviously, Lang’s gonna need more than himself and Hope (and her parents) to defeat Kang.

This leads us to believe that Paul Rudd‘s character will once again have to do the job of going back before Kang appears to kill everyone and warn the forces capable of stopping him that Kang will be a major incoming threat, who if not acted upon, can kill all of them, let alone several of them.

One of the small role actors from  Ant-Man and The Wasp won’t be appearing in the follow-up movie. Tom Scharpling plays the role of a driver for Sonny Burch in Ant-Man and The Wasp, but it seems like he won’t be here this time round, and he couldn’t have found out in a more brutal manner.

Ironically, during an appearance on Tom Scharpling’s The Best Show podcast, director Peyton Reed broke the devastating news to Scharpling that he was cut out from Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, and this was during a live interview! He said-

“This is serious. This is not a gag. So the scene we were planning to shoot, which was going to be, this is not a spoiler, but it was gonna be in San Francisco… we have had to cut.”

Scharpling was visibly disappointed, although Reed did apologize, hopefully, they’ll sort things out with each other before this gets ugly.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania premieres on February 17, 2023, and will be the first movie of Phase Five of the MCU, make sure to tune in!
