Did you know ... ?

  1. Scott's Ant-Man suit has been altered to include the classic chest pattern from the comics.
  2. Emma Fuhrmann played the now-teenage Cassie Lang in Avengers: Endgame (2019) but the role was recast with Kathryn Newton. Fuhrmann claimed on Twitter that she learned about being replaced when Disney released details of the film at their Investor Day in December 2020, and that while she was saddened, she was still grateful to have been a part of the MCU.
  3. The mid- and post-credits scenes feature the following variants of Kang: Rama-Tut - Kang's original alias when he traveled back in time and conquered ancient Egypt. Introduced in Fantastic Four #19 (Oct. 1963), and retroactively identified as Kang in The Avengers #8 (Sep. 1964). Immortus - The future version of Kang and the ruler of Limbo. Introduced in The Avengers #10 (Nov. 1964), and retroactively identified as Kang in Giant-Size Avengers #3 (Feb. 1975). Scarlet Centurion - The alias assumed by Kang after his defeat by the Fantastic Four in ancient Egypt and his encounter with Doctor Doom in the 20th century. Introduced in The Avengers Annual #2 (Jul. 1968). Victor Timely - A version of Kang who established the town of Timely, Wisconsin in 1901 to serve as his 20th century base of operations. Introduced in The Avengers Annual #21 (Jul. 1992). Chronomonitor #616 - A version of Kang that works for the Time Variance Authority. Introduced in Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four #23 (Aug. 2007).Immortus was the inspiration for He Who Remains in Loki (2021), and Victor Timely will appear in the second season.
  4. This is the first Ant-Man movie not co-written by Paul Rudd.
  5. When Janet is explaining why the Quantum Realm didn't look like this last time, she briefly uses the phrase "Sub-Atomica", which in the comics is either a specific system in the Microverse visited by the Fantastic Four or simply Reed's name for the Microverse.
  6. Mark Oliver Everett: Frontman of the rock band Eels, cameos as a man asking Scott for a picture. Everett's father Hugh Everett III was the first to propose the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.
  7. According to director Peyton Reed, Darren Cross returning as M.O.D.O.K. for this film was a serendipitous "Eureka!" moment for the writers. Reed and company were trying to figure out how to bring the Pyms and Langs into the Quantum Realm and how Kang could possibly know about the Ant Family. It then dawned on Reed that they'd already unwittingly introduced a potential 'inside man' back in the first Ant-Man (2015): Darren. Reed realized they could use Yellowjacket's implied fate from that film's climax as the mechanism to bring the Ant Family to the Quantum Realm and explain Kang's familiarity with them.
  8. Hope's shorter and darker hair in this movie was Evangeline Lilly's doing, as she wanted to pay tribute to Janet Van Dyne's original pixie-style haircut in the comics.
  9. Kang's facial scars resemble the markings on his mask from the comics. His face shield also makes his face appear blue.
  10. This is Bill Murray's first appearance film from Marvel Studios. Murray was interested in joining Marvel for a while, and even phoned Kathryn Newton to ask if she was okay with him joining the cast of this film.
  11. The film's ending was entirely different in the original version. It was supposed to end with Hope and Scott getting stranded in the Quantum Realm after the portal closed. After a reshoot mandate, the ending was rewritten into its current state where Hope and Scott get back in the world after the portal being conveniently opened again by Cassie. Scott's final monologue about Kang's impending return was also added in the reshot ending, which was not in the original script.
  12. According to Peyton Reed, Corey Stoll agreed to reprise the role of Darren Cross both to work with the Ant-Man crew again and because, as a comics nerd, he knew who M.O.D.O.K. was and loved the idea of getting to play him. The movie's writer Jeff Loveness stated on Twitter that he had always wanted to write a "tortured, classical spelling burdened with a crusade against fate" for all his career, and was very grateful that he got to do so here.
  13. When she shrinks down to her normal size after helping her giant father, Cassie says she's craving limes. Scott is delighted by this, noting that the process of growing always leads to an appetite for citrus, as evidenced by his desire for orange slices after his fight in Captain America: Civil War (2016).
  14. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has called the film "a direct line" into Phase 5 and will lead directly into Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (2026), while Peyton Reed said the movie will have a "profound impact" on the MCU.
  15. At the beginning of his career, director Peyton Reed directed behind-the-scenes material for the Back to the Future franchise, and those efforts included Back to the Future Part II (1989). Early on in Quantumania, there's a moment involving a pizza scene that pays tribute to that sequel "I did the making-of documentaries for Back to the Future Part II and Part III. So I was on set when they did [Part II's pizza] scene, and yes, [Quantumania's pizza scene] is a little tip of the hat to it," Reed revealed.
  16. In an anonymous interview with Vulture, a VFX artist said that the quality of the effects of this film were sacrificed in favor of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022): "In terms of priority, Wakanda Forever was definitely at the top of the list. All the money went to that. All the best resources went to that. It's understandable given the context - with Chadwick and everything and how well the first film did. But it did diminish the ability to carry Ant-Man all the way through. For Ant-Man, there were a lot of editorial changes happening toward the latter third and fourth of the project that were just too late. There's a point of no return. Why certain things were changed, why certain notes were nitpicked longer than they should have been - that's on Marvel. But it definitely did cause a lot of tension, turmoil, and weight on everybody at [company name redacted]. Unfortunately, it is noticeable that there were shortcuts. Certain things were used to cover up incomplete work. Certain editorial cuts were made to not show as much action or effects as there could have been - likely because there just wasn't enough time to render everything. There was a lot of shortening and rolling of shots (rolling is when you don't shorten or lengthen a shot - you just move it a few frames in the cut). It really did feel like certain scenes were trimmed or otherwise altered to either save money, save time, or cover up the inability to get it done."
  17. The second trilogy in the MCU to have the same director for all three films following the Spider-Man films (2017-2021) directed by Jon Watts.
  18. Kang's new era speech before Cassie and Jentorra hijack it, is a shortened version of his speech to Immortus in Avengers Forever.
  19. M.O.D.O.K.'s helmet visually evokes his comic book appearance, primarily with its wide, toothy sneer and Glowing Eyes of Doom.
  20. There were many attempts to incorporate M.O.D.O.K. into a live-action film or TV series before he made his debut in this film. In 1997, Jeff Vintar and Stan Lee wrote a script for an Iron Man film for 20th Century Fox that featured M.O.D.O.K. as the main villain, but the script was reworked by other writers and eventually abandoned. Christopher Markus wanted M.O.D.O.K. to appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) with Peter Dinklage eyed to play him, but Marvel rejected the idea in favor of Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford). Dinklage was later rumored to play M.O.D.O.K. in Avengers: Infinity War (2018), but ended up playing Eitri instead. In television, there were plans for Anton Ivanov (Zach McGowan) to become M.O.D.O.K. in the fifth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013), but Marvel relinquished access to the character. Keith David was supposed to play a version of M.O.D.O.K. in the canceled TV series New Warriors (2017).
  21. Victorian scientist Kang "Victor Timely" has the same name as an incarnation of Kang who settled in 1901 in the comics, who in turn was named after Marvel's old name of Timely Comics.
  22. Hope was going to have had a son in an early draft in the movie, and there were even scenes shot with a child actor in the role. He ultimately was removed from the film due to the storyline changing, and there's no indication of Hope having kids of her own in the final product.
  23. According to screenwriter Jeff Loveness, the MCU incarnation of M.O.D.O.K. was influenced by Kevin Kline's portrayal of Otto from A Fish Called Wanda (1988) and Frank Grimes from the classic The Simpsons (1989) episode Homer's Enemy (1997).
  24. Jonathan Majors based his performance as Kang the Conqueror on the manipulative villain Iago from William Shakespeare's tragedy "Othello", and on historical conquerors Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan and Julius Caesar.
  25. Suffered the biggest second weekend box office drop of any MCU film (69.9%), surpassing Black Widow (2021) (67.8%).
  26. Jeff Loveness revealed that the character of Linda, the hot scientist that Hank dated while Janet was trapped in the Quantum Realm was originally going to appear in the film with Jennifer Coolidge in the role.
  27. Shipped to cinemas under the pseudonym "Dust Bunny".
  28. The first Ant-Man movie not to feature Judy Greer (Maggie), Bobby Cannavale (Paxton), Tip 'T.I.' Harris (Dave), Michael Peña (Luis) and David Dastmalchian (Kurt), although he voices a new character, Veb. Randall Park returns as Jimmy Woo, but briefly.
  29. David Dastmalchian, who played Kurt in Ant-Man (2015), Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) and What If... Zombies?! (2021), plays the new character Veb in this film, due to the Wombats (Kurt, Luis, and Dave) not being present.
  30. Kang angrily smashes Scott's helmet with a roundhouse kick. This is reflective of a comics panel where he does a similar move against Spider-Man.
  31. This film, Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) and The Marvels (2023) were filmed the same time, with Thor: Love and Thunder filmed in Sydney, Australia, The Marvels filmed in Jersey City, New Jersey; Los Angeles; and Buckinghamshire, England, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania filmed in Atlanta, Georgia; Turkey; and London, England.
  32. Kathryn Newton, a natural blonde, dyed her hair brown as Cassie. Evangeline Lilly also dyed her hair darker and cut it short to pay homage to Janet Van Dyne's/Wasp's original look.
  33. This is the third MCU sequel that did not surpass its predecessor at the box office domestically or worldwide, after Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022).
  34. Scriptwriter Jeff Loveness based the dynamic between the fathers and daughters in the film on the father-daughter films Father of the Bride (1991) and Hook (1991).
  35. In the scene at the bar in the Quantum Realm, when Janet asks the Quantum Realm resident, "Where's Krylar?", he responds, "You're you!", to which she then responds, "Keep that between us." This is a nod to the 2003 film, Coffee and Cigarettes, specifically the segment "Delirium". The scene features RZA and GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan, playing themselves, drinking tea in a coffee shop. They recognize their waiter as Bill Murray, playing himself. When they point at that he is Bill Murray, he responds, "Yeah, but just keep that between us, okay?" Bill Murray plays Krylar in this film.
  36. Plenty of the weapons in M.O.D.O.K.'s Hyperspace Arsenal harken back to his playable appearance in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (2011), particularly the plasma cannons and buzzsaws.
  37. On February 4, 2021, Turkey's Minister of Culture and Tourism Mehmet Ersoy announced that shooting for the film had begun in the country's region of Cappadocia, with the production also set to film in other parts of Turkey.
  38. When Scott sees Cassie go big for the first time, he proudly exclaims "You're huge!" before giving her a hug. This hearkens back to him commenting on how big she's gotten in Avengers: Endgame (2019).
  39. At dinner, Hank says he could've freed Cassie from jail using his ants. Hank previously freed Scott from jail using ants in the first Ant-Man (2015).
  40. The movie used elements from two Fantastic Four comics, issue 16 with Ant-Man and issue 19 with Rama-Tut.
  41. Evangeline Lilly had her first Wasp costume fitting almost three weeks before she read the script.
  42. Kang being in the Quantum Realm brings up the possibility that he is responsible for the event of What If... Zombies!? by infecting Janet in retaliation.
  43. After Hank's ants find him he explains that they entered a part of the quantum realm that experienced time dilation, a day for everyone else was thousands of years for the ants, and in that time they built an extremely advanced civilization. He specifically describes it as a "technocratic type II civilization". A technocratic civilization is one whose form of government is based on their leaders being selected based on their knowledge and expertise in a certain area of responsibility, especially with regard to scientific or technical knowledge; while there has never been a practical working technocracy, the governments of the former Soviet Union and the Chinese Communist Party have been liked to one, as most of their leaders had some kind of scientific or technical background. Hank describing them as having a type II civilization is referring to the Kardashev scale, a method of measuring a space faring civilization's level of technological advancement based on the amount of energy it is able to use. The scale was created by Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev in 1964 as a guide for the Soviet Union's new radio astronomy space listening program. There are three levels to the scale: a type I civilization is able to access all the available energy on its planet and store it for consumption and control natural events such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and volcanoes, it is estimated humanity is at least 200 years from reaching this level of advancement. A type II civilization can directly harness and consume the energy of a star, likely through the use of a Dyson Sphere, which is a hypothetical construct involving a massive hollow shell built around a star in order to harness its energy, with the civilization living on the interior surface of the sphere, which would be hundreds of millions of times the surface area of Earth. A type III civilization is able to capture all the energy emitted by its galaxy, including energy from any objects in that galaxy, such as every star, black hole or nebula.
  44. The second MCU film to receive a "rotten" score on Rotten Tomatoes, after Eternals (2021).
  45. When Kang first arrives in the Quantum Realm and meets the similarly trapped Janet Van Dyne, he comes off as a sympathetic character searching for a way back to his home. However, it's soon revealed that he was on a mission to conquer every timeline, but because of his warring ways, he was exiled to the microscopic dimension. Later, as he explains his plan to Janet, he pulls up a digital map of the multiverse and its countless timelines. This may simply seem like a way to depict how the different realities interact with and branch off from one another in the MCU, but there's a little more significance behind that multiversal map. It's nearly identical to the one displayed numerous times in the Disney+ series Loki (2021), which deals heavily with the multiverse.
  46. This is Bill Murray's third comic-book role, after: The Human Torch in a 1975 radio show adapting the early issues of Fantastic Four Superman in a sketch in Margot Kidder/The Chieftains (1979) Garfield in Garfield (2004) and Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006)He was also considered to play Batman in Batman (1989). The SNL sketch featured Garrett Morris as Ant-Man, and he made a cameo as a cab driver in Ant-Man (2015).
  47. Was announced to be called "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" on 10 December 2020 on Disney Investor's Day.
  48. Bill Pope, the cinematographer for this film, was initially set to be the cinematographer for the original Ant-Man (2015) film when Edgar Wright was attached to direct. However, when Wright dropped out of the film, Pope left as well.
  49. The movie is dedicated "In memory of David Jones".
  50. In a 2023 interview with Collider, Peyton Reed spoke about how his never-realized Fantastic Four film influenced his work on this movie: "...I developed Fantastic Four like 20 years ago. I channeled a lot of my Fantastic Four love into the Ant-Man world, and specifically into Quantumania. You know, it's no mistake that both are kind of dysfunctional families of superheroes, and in Fantastic Four they may go into the Negative Zone, we went to the Quantum Realm. I really scratched that itch with these movies."
  51. David Dastmalchian voices the alien creature Veb. He played a human character in the first two Ant-Man films, but there was no room for the ex-con gang this time around. Reed calls him his good luck charm, adding that "you can't make an Ant-Man movie without David Dastmalchian."
  52. Kang was more jokey and casual in early drafts before they decided to double down on his ruthlessness and pity.
  53. According to Joanna Robinson, author of MCU: The Reign of Marvel Studios, Marvel was surprised as this movie's poor reception and low box office returns, "[Marvel Studios] is aware of what's happening to their brand. My understanding, having talked to some people, is that 'Quantumania' really shook them, and I'm sure 'Secret Invasion' shook them further, but 'Quantumania' really shook them because they felt like they had something good. Because they all internally thought, 'Everyone's gonna love this.' And then they put it out and people didn't. And then they were like, 'Oh no, our internal barometer is not attuned to what people want anymore.' With 'Quantumania,' they were like, 'We put out a banger.' And then that's not how a lot of people felt."
  54. Peyton Reed worked with Katy M. O'Brian on The Mandalorian, and wanted to create a character for her here.
  55. Jonathan Majors was having difficulty nailing a particular exchange during the scene where he has both Scott and Cassie in jail cells, and Reed suggested he try it again with Kang feeling pity for Scott. It was exactly what Majors and Kang needed.
  56. Jeff Loveness thinks Jonathan Majors is "the most exciting actor of his generation."
  57. Peyton Reed and Jeff Loveness both loved the idea of taking an epic movie with large-scale clashes and ending it with a fight between two dudes, sans powers, in a room.
  58. Jeff Loveness recalls calling and pitching his M.O.D.O.K. reveal that Ant-Man's (2015) big bad, Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll), was repurposed after being sucked into the Quantum Realm to Corey Stoll, and the actor was left giggling on the other end of the phone.
  59. Composer Christophe Beck claims that Cassie's theme is Ant-Man's theme backwards.
  60. The coffee shop owner is played by Ruben Rabasa who actually had a small role in Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) but was ultimately cut out.
  61. Marvel has had numerous discussions as to how to bring M.O.D.O.K. into other films before finally finding a way here.
  62. Spitballing over what exactly the "probability storm" would encompass included pitches for a dream sequence with Joe Montana, a large ant voiced by Werner Herzog, and more. "In the last movie we talked about quantum entanglement, which is sort of a heavy thing, but we did our comedic take on it which is basically All of Me," says Peyton Reed, adding that they ultimately landed on the Multiplicity effect this time around.
  63. Jeff Loveness' first produced screenplay.
  64. The restaurant where Hank (Michael Douglas), Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer), and Hope (Evangeline Lilly) have lunch is loosely inspired by two things Douglas Adams' Restaurant at the Edge of the Universe, and the wait staff at Hollywood's Musso & Frank Grill.
  65. Peyton Reed says that the opening prologue's feeling of isolation was meant to invoke something like Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven (1992).
  66. They had fun with the super giant Ant-Man and gave real thought to featuring a kaiju-like battle involving another giant entity.
  67. "I will burn them out of time for what they've done to me," is one of Peyton Reed's favorite lines from Jeff Loveness' script.
  68. Veb was one of the very last characters to come together, a last-minute creation right before Jeff Loveness' deadline, and he was thrilled to see the little guy with a fascination for holes become a standout hit with audiences.
  69. At 1 hr 39 mins.) Jonathan Majors improvised the "I am Kang!"
  70. Jeff Loveness is a big Lord of the Rings fan, and Boromir's death scene was an inspiration for M.O.D.O.K.'s final moments.
  71. Ryan Bergara, Marielle Scott: Co-host of BuzzFeed Unsolved and his wife as two people who pay for Scott's lunch and raise a toast to him.
  72. Jeff Loveness had never actually seen Welcome Back, Kotter (1975-1979)
