January is very nearly at an end, and that obviously means it's nearly February, a.k.a. Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania month!
Marvel Studios has released a new minute-long TV spot for the highly anticipated threequel, and while it's primarily made up of familiar footage (we've clearly reached that point in the marketing campaign), it still offers an exciting glimpse of what's to come. Scott Lang's clash with Kang the Conqueror is at the heart of this sneak peek, and it looks absolutely epic.
During a recent interview with Deadline, Jonathan Majors teased some of his main sources of inspiration when it comes to playing the MCU's Kang. "He’s a conqueror, right? You look at Alexander the Great, you look at Genghis Khan, Julius Caesar, start there. He’s a part of an already established universe...those are inspirations."
The actor would go on to share some insights into the villain's mindset, suggesting Kang's arrogance will see him set out to show those he faces how much smarter he is than them.
"And then, counterpoints, which is also important in creating character, is to figure out how they counter people. You know, ‘You’re smart, but watch how smart I am.’ So you can look at Robert Downey’s Iron Man and say ‘OK, if that’s the superhero’s superhero, et cetera, and I’m to be the supervillain of supervillains, how do I counteract that in the zeitgeist?’"
"I mean, I could write a book on this at this point, but I’ll close there."
Majors is clearly taking this role seriously, and you can get a glimpse of what that will look like by checking out Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania's latest TV spot below.
In Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, 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.
Directed by Peyton Reed, the threequel also stars Jonathan Majors as Kang, David Dastmalchian as Veb, Katy O'Brian as Jentorra, William Jackson Harper as Quaz, and Bill Murray as Lord Krylar.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is set to be released in theaters on February 17.
