After the defeat of Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, the Marvel universe is preparing to welcome a new villain. His name is Kang the Conqueror and a first variant of it, The One Who Remains, was launched during the first season of Loki.

Yet, according to Paul Rudd, the authors had another Marvel film as a point of reference to make Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
As is clear from the first trailer, the third Ant-Man movie changes its tune. While the first two films focused above all on the irony of the character, in Quantumania the narration undergoes an important change and will return a more serious and dramatic approach. It was to make all this possible Thor: Ragnarokthird film starring Chris Hemsworth which in turn opted for a change of register. Thanks to Thor, Paul Rudd admitted that the third Ant-Man film could also experience the change. To the microphones of CBR told how it was possible:
We talked a lot during the making process. I kept thinking about Thor: Ragnarok, where the difference with the others was so glaring that I could hardly believe it was the third film, however different. There was something attractive about doing something unexpected.
As well as in Thor: Ragnarok Hela, played by Cate Blanchetthad a strong connection with Thor and Loki, in Quantumania Kang the Conqueror has a strong connection with some members of the Ant-Man team, especially with Jane van Dyne, who was trapped for a long time in the Quantum Realm where Kang is.
