'Ant-Man' Leak: What's Been Revealed About Upcoming Marvel Movie 'Quantumania'

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is coming out later than planned, with a release date set back to July 2023. Despite that, filming continues and, as with any movie set, hints about the film can escape from the secrecy of the MCU Towers.

A few small leaks have been seen on Twitter from the set, including images of an exciting new vehicle, a logo, and even a potential cameo.

As well as that, some of the cast members, like Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd, have been talking a little bit about what to expect.

However, Marvel is keeping quiet on the truth about any of these leaks, leaving fans to theorize to their hearts' content.

Newsweek breaks down all the clues and what they could mean ahead of the movie's release.

'Ant-Man' Could Be Linked to Doctor Strange

One of the most recent leaks to come from the set is the logo, which has been seen across the on-set chairs.

The word 'Quantumania,' seems to be stylized in a rather interesting fashion, which could suggest a link with Doctor Strange.

This typeface looks to be ancient and could be similar to the symbols seen in the lair of Doctor Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), which he uses to cast spells.

In the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, for example, Doctor Strange is seen writing his spell out with strange symbols all over the place.

Evangeline Lilly, in an interview on movie podcast Lights, Camera, Pod, said the "breadth of this one is definitely grander," after speaking of how the Ant-Man world has seemed separate and standalone compared to other MCU movies.

This could suggest, for the first time, that Ant-Man will be brought into some of the mythologies of the multiverse, meaning a Doctor Strange collaboration could be on the cards.

The Quantum Realm Has the Key to Defeating Kang the Conqueror

One link we know will exist in this movie is to He Who Remains, AKA Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), who was introduced in the Loki Disney+ series.

Majors is appearing in the upcoming movie, and some have even suggested the new logo could be in a quantum realm script, which could be key to defeating Kang.

The text on the logo itself seems to just be bearing the name of the movie, however the script could be discovered in the quantum realm and be able to reverse some of the effects of the multiverse.

It could even be linked to Doctor Strange or the Darkhold, as found by the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and therefore have a greater power than we know.

Paul Rudd has already sung the praises of Majors in a recent interview with Variety, saying: "I've loved everything he's done, and I see what he's doing in this, and I'm knocked out by it. It is really fun to bring new people into the fold, and the enthusiasm that people have is palpable."

However, given the discussion of time loops by Morbius (Owen Wilson) in Loki, it could be this is just suggesting how time travel will be central to the movie.

The Wasp Is Going to the Quantum Realm

So far, Ant-Man has been the main traveler into the quantum realm—and it was here he found the key to reversing the effects of the Blip.

However, a vehicle that was reportedly on the set of the new movie at Pinewood Studios in the U.K. has two seats and looks like some type of spaceship.

This could mean that the Wasp is joining Ant-Man on this two-seater trip into the quantum realm, meaning he may need some extra help facing off against his foe, Kang.

Bill Murray Could Be Joining the MCU

According to Inverse, an advert on Mandy.com suggested there was an actor working as a body-double for Bill Murray on the movie Dust Bunny, which is the codename for the Ant-Man film.

The advert has now been removed from the website.

However, earlier this week, Murray remarked in an interview with German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine (translated by Deadline): "You know, recently I made a Marvel movie. I probably won't tell you, but never mind.

"In any case, some people were quite surprised why I decided on such a project. But for me the thing was quite clear: I got to know the director—and really liked him very much. He was funny, humble, everything you want from a director."

Murray added that he had liked the director's previous work on Bring It On—Ant-Man director Peyton Reed made the cheerleader movie, which was released in 2000. The actor said a one-time experience had been sufficient for him, suggesting he will not be taking on a regular role in the MCU.

Newsweek has contacted Marvel for comment.
