To celebrate the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which arrives on both sides of the pond this weekend, we sat down with its amazing cast and filmmaker to learn more about the latest Marvel extravaganza.
Super-Hero partners Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Together, with Hope’s parents Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Scott’s daughter Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton), the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought possible.
We chat with the main duo themselves, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly about their third time out and the evolution of their characters, the challenges of the “trilogy” finale, and their continued relationship during the madness. Michael Douglas, back as Hank Pym, talks about his excitement of returning and the new surroundings in the Quantum Realm, his screen-wife Michelle Pfeiffer and his hopes for a “Han Solo” death in part four. Kathryn Newton, the newest recruit to the mix playing an adult Cassie Lang talks about her own suit, stepping into an enormous film, and her excitement about joining the MCU. And, finally, director Peyton Reed talks about third film syndrome, Jonathan Majors, the technological advances that helped the film and the cast interact with the Quantum Realm, and plans for part four.
