As director Peyton Reed has previously admitted, the first two Ant-Mans were “palate cleansers” for bigger MCU event movies, but Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is different as it is the big MCU event movie. While speaking to Empire Magazine, Marvel president Kevin Feige came clean on why now was the time for Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang to finally, as he put it, stand at the “front of the podium,” explaining that the astonishing shrinking hero has “earned” the honor of kicking off Phase Five and being the first Avenger to face Kang. Let’s just hope he manages to survive the encounter

James Gunn might now be the co-CEO of chief rivals DC Studios, but he’s admitted that he’s still helping Marvel Studios craft their own future. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to introduce Adam Warlock into the MCU, as played by Will Poulter, who was viewed as a left-field casting choice when first announced. Gunn has explained that he didn’t want to hire a big name like “Tom Cruise” but someone “youthful” who could serve Marvel for years to come. Quiet, James, Warner Bros. might hear you.

Spider-Man: No Way Home was so show-stopping that Sony and Marvel have seemingly taken some time to re-group and work out where the webslinger should go next. It seems they’re close to working it out, though, as the latest rumors have it that Tom Holland will be back in the red and blue to start filming by the end of 2023. If that’s the case, then a release somewhere in 2025 seems plausible, which would mean that year could deliver three of the most highly anticipated Marvel projects in the works, along with the Fantastic Four reboot and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
