The release timeframe for Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania has been revealed by a titular star for this second sequel. Michelle Pfeiffer confirmed that the third instalment is arriving for 2020, with supporters shocked that Marvel would provide Pfeiffer clearance to make this announcement. Her role as “Janet Van Dyne” didn’t come until the second instalment, with the on-scene time of that character being minutes.
Michelle’s role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Janet Van Dyne became a fan-favourite supporting character for the Ant-Man franchise. Michelle Pfeiffer’s name was the original “Wasp”, who spent decades living inside a quantum universe. After being resurrected with the help of her husband & their daughter, Janet Van Dyne lived to see another day. Those days were numbers, as the end of Ant-Man, Two saw all prominent characters of the franchise killed by the MCUs greatest villain, Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.
The second instalment of this franchise surrounded the inner workings of Marvel’s “Quantum Realm”, which is a smaller scale iteration of our universe where gravity & life doesn’t operate on similar mechanics. Being stuck inside the Quantum Realm for 31-Years gave Janet Van Dyne prominent data on what’s possible inside this smaller universe. Her data-enabled Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) to calculate that time travel is possible. Without Janet being stuck inside the Quantum Realm, it wouldn’t have been manageable for the Avengers to destroy Thanos in another timeline.
The Official Release Announcement
Social media has become the conventional method for announcing release dates on upcoming films & games. Michele Pfeiffer selected Instagram for this announcement, where she confirmed that Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania is arriving by 2022. The third instalment is likely coming for this year’s holiday season, which would follow suit with previous release dates seen with Ant-Man One & Two.
Michelle Pfeiffer’s announcement correlates with a multitude of other confirmations made by Disney on 2020s Investors Day. Multiple MCU Films & TV Shows were announced, which extended to other series regarding another property owned by Disney, Star Wars. Between 2021 & 2022, more than 30+ shows or movies are being released by the Walt Disney Corporation.
