With the pandemic over, studios are moving away from streaming and once again taking their time before releasing movies for free on those platforms. That's all part of an effort to capitalise on box office and Digital revenue, and Disney's 45-day theatrical window now appears to be nonexistent.
There's still no news on Avatar: The Way of Water's Disney+ debut, for example, but we know Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania - which is currently available to purchase on Digital - hits 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on May 16.
Today, it's been confirmed that the threequel will arrive on Disney+ starting May 17.
While it's one of Marvel Studios' most poorly received blockbusters, we're sure many of you will welcome the opportunity to revisit this trip into the Quantum Realm at home.
In our review of the movie, we said: "Despite being an example of why a movie shouldn’t be shot almost entirely in The Volume, every time Jonathan Majors steps on screen as Kang, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is an epic tale to astonish and a monumental chapter in the Multiverse Saga."
We recently spoke with Ron Miller, Facial Model Supervisor, and Frankie Stellato, Animation Supervisor, about their work bringing M.O.D.O.K. to life in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. You can find that interview here.
Check out a mostly Kang-less teaser for the movie's Disney+ debut 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.
