Marvel Studios finally released the official trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, starring titular stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne/Wasp, and Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror. The third installment of the movie series will kick off MCU’s Phase 5.
Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania Trailer Is Here
The trailer gives a first look at the realm and the most-anticipated appearance of Majors. Kang will have a significant role in the next phases of the MCU and will have his own solo, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. His story is more complicated, interweaving storylines not only among the Avengers but the Fantastic Four and the X-Men as well.
Aside from Majors, Bill Murray was also spotted in the trailer. The actor is currently under scrutiny online following his controversial allegations of abuse of a female crew on the set of Being Mortal. There have been rumors that Marvel might recast the actor to avoid further issues, although this has not been confirmed.
Fans Bashed Trailer For Terrible CGI Effects
One thing fans noticed in the movie’s trailer was the CGI, which seemed to have a similar visual aesthetic as the Spy Kids 3-D. The children’s movie was criticized for its terrible special effects, and many fans also agreed with the original poster. Fans took to Twitter their thoughts about the latest trailer.

Gonna be honest, most of the CGI backgrounds and stuff in Ant-Man 3 just looks like noise to me

Ant-Man looking like an idea Marvel movie…. For Marvel. Entire movie filmed in greenscreen. Just throw random actors in the room, push through some shaky CGI, and put the movie out in a few months.

That new Ant-Man movie looks Disney Plus quality. That CGI looks like complete ass and I'm tired of the horrendous CGI Marvel gets away with in their movies

Many details regarding Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s plot are still kept in mystery. The trailer alone was made to confuse people about whether Kang will be comic book accurate. Last year’s leaked behind-the-scenes images only gave a cryptic look at Kang.
