Marvel Studios swaps the theatrical release dates of 2023’s The Marvels and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
To clarify, the films are simply trading places on the movie release schedule. ”The Marvels,” the sequel to 2019’s “Captain Marvel,” was originally due to open in theaters on Feb. 17, 2023, and “Quantumania,” the third movie in the “Ant-Man” series, was set to open on July 28, 2023. The Marvels will arrive the weekend after Warner Bros’ Barbie and Universal’s Oppenheimer.
Insiders say this was a matter of “Quantumania” simply being further along in its creative process than “The Marvels.”
Peyton Reed returns to the helm for directing Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. It will see the return of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man. The cast includes Evangeline Lily as Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, and Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne. Kathryn Newton will be playing a grown-up version of Cassie Lang, and Jonathan Majors will be portraying Kang the Conqueror.
Captain Marvel 2 is being directed by Nia DaCosta. The script is written by Megan McDonnell, who also a staff writer from the Marvel Disney+ series WandaVision. The film will see the return of Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, and will also feature appearances from Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau, and Zawe Ashton in a currently-unknown role.
