Without letting the shuttle drop, actor Paul Rudd took the stage to talk about Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Accompanied by the director of the feature film, Peyton Reed, Rudd even jumped on stage, demonstrating how excited he was by the warm reception he received.
After revealing to the public a comic scene from the film in which the character Scott Lang responds to how he can be an Avenger even though he is an ex-convict, divorced and constantly mistaken for Spider-Man, it was Evangeline Lilly’s turn to join the others in the presentation. Vespa’s interpreter was on the same wavelength as her colleagues and even risked a few words in Portuguese.
To make things even darker, it was Jonathan Majors’ turn to step up and complete the Marvel team. Majors will give life to the villain Kang: The Conqueror and asked what he will do badly to the heroes, it was quite redundant: “I will conquer”.

And one of the most impactful moments, the villain known as “Temporal Despot” asks if he has ever killed Ant-Man. Before physically attacking the hero, Kang urges Scott to get a key that can possibly get both of them out of the Quantum Realm.
