MCU newcomer Kathryn Newton, who portrays Cassie Lang, shares a spoiler about the Quantum Realm from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania star Kathryn Newton may have spoiled a very specific detail about the Quantum Realm in the upcoming movie.
In an interview with Fandango, Newton appeared alongside her Quantumania co-stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Jonathan Majors. Quantumania marks Newton’s MCU debut as Cassie Lang, the daughter of Rudd’s Scott Lang/Ant-Man. In the interview, Newton revealed a small detail about the Quantum Realm involving “goo.” She said, “When you arrive [in the Quantum Realm] you have to drink some goo. And then you can get along and talk to people.”
While the function of the “goo” in the third Ant-Man film remains unknown, Newton added that she “got the red goo” and Rudd “got the green goo.” However, her co-stars did not provide any further details about the substance. Rudd added that, in the Quantum Realm, “You get to meet some really interesting people. You get to meet some really interesting things that might be people.”
Quantumania Kicks Off the MCU’s Phase 5
Quantumania will mark the first entry in Phase 5 of the MCU when it opens in theaters on Feb. 17, 2023. Both Rudd and Lilly are reprising their respective roles as Ant-Man and the Wasp for the third installment in the trilogy, and Majors is similarly reprising his role as Kang the Conqueror after appearing as a variant of himself in Diseny+’s Loki. Newton, however, will make her MCU debut as Cassie Lang, who the actor has previously described as “kind of a mess.”
According to director Peyton Reed, Quantumania will explore the relationship between Cassie, who is now 18, and Scott, who has lost five years with his daughter after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. “The whole theme is time and how much time he’s missed and his main motivation is just, ‘I want time with my daughter,'” said Reed. “And now he’s coming into contact with a villain in this movie, Kang the Conqueror, who has dominion over time, and what does that mean to them?”
Reed has previously explained that he sees the third Ant-Man movie as an Avengers-level story. “People felt like, ‘Oh, these are fun little palate cleansers after a gigantic Avengers movie,'” he said. “For this third one, I said, ‘I don’t want to be the palate cleanser anymore. I want to be the big Avengers movie.'” Similarly, writer Jeff Loveness stated that Quantumania was pitched as, “‘What if Ant-Man is accidentally in an Avengers movie by himself?'”
