Marvel Phase 5 has BIG plans for MCU fans, which includes Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania director Peyton Reed on his goal to prove how the Scott Lang is not just a “palate cleanser” for the Avengers. With first reactions for the Ant-Man threequel already surfacing the internet, such as how the film has “Star Wars vibe”, director Reed is more than happy to reveal that a Star Wars show DID influence the threequel.
“Well, what was exciting to me is, you know, again, it was a thrill to work on [The] Mandalorian,” Reed shared with Comicbook.com, seeing as the director is a big Star Wars fan and even directed some episodes in The Mandalorian, “Obviously, as a lifelong Star Wars fan, and certainly the environments George Lucas kicked off many, many years ago have made an indelible stamp on generations,”

Reed started hinting on some of the aspects that Star Wars had influenced on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and one of the things he was hugely excited about is the fact that they were free to start from scratch:
“We have to figure out sort of what the internal logic and the internal history of the Quantum Realm is and what are the laws of physics,” In terms of the Star Wars inspo, the Quantum Realm was relatively new in the MCU, which made Ant-Man 3 stand out even more from the franchise, “And what do these various areas look like. And that was the most fun we’ve had because we didn’t go to anything else that appeared in the MCU. It was our own little corner that we could carve out.”
Well, it looks like Peyton got his wish on making Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as big as the next Avengers films, seeing as Kang the Conqueror has finally made his debut in the threequel, which perfectly sets up Avengers: The Kang Dynasty soon.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will hit theaters on February 17, 2023. You can check out more details about it here.
