#AntMan3 #Quantumania #EasterEggs
Guys, I am going to talk about Kang, Loki, the multiverse saga, the ending, how all of this sets up Avengers, the kang dynasty and secret wars. But also, we’re going to talk about this movie, whether or not it works, and how it brings the story of scott lang full circle.
So let’s get into those easter eggs. First of all, the marvel studios intro has now been altered to include Shuri fist pumping from Wakanda Forever [cli p]. And he who remains has also been added to the credits, foreshadowing Johnatahn majors return as kang.
Now the first trailer for this move was set to Elton John’s “goodbye yellow brick road,” which established that this movie is a loose retelling of the Wizard of Oz. In this case, Kang is the wizard, a scientist who landed in the Quantum realm long ago. Both he and the wizard built a fantastical city, oppressed the people of the land, and inspired fanatical hero worship in the people.
Then, people fomr the wizard’s world–the outside world–arrive. They go through a series of trials, meet some friends, and eventually, all of the outsiders return to their own world.
Doug: So who’s the wicked witch of the east? Is Kang the wizard and the witch?
I said it’s a loose retelling buddy, not everyone has an analogue.
Doug: I got an analogue for your butt.
Anyways, we begin the movie with a prologue that shows the wizard arriving in the quantum realm. Janet owns a small farm that keeps her alive, and this is answering a few questions people have about Harvard after quantum mania. Up until then, we had only seen the quantum realm as this weird freaky floaty place, but a deleted scene from ant-man and the Wasp elaborated on what we could expect in the sequel [worlds beyond worlds, etc]. In fact, they lifted this exact line of dialogue for Janet in this movie, when she explains the realm to her family.
Doug: Why would they take that out of the first movie?
Well, I’m glad they did. Because it sets up that she wanted to keep the dangers of the quantum realm a secret and that the time was traumatic for her. If she just started babbling to hank right away then this would have been undermined.
I thought it was interesting how Kang’s time chair–and his tech-revolves around rotating circles. Now in past videos we’ve talked about this visual similar to the ten rings, and how it would connect to the beacon at the end of shang chi. Even the gateway that Jabet opens later is covered in rings like the celestial technology we saw in the eternals.
I do think that all of this is eventually going to connect in some way, and we’ll cover a couple theories in a future video. But basically, what if the ten rings are the technology of an ang variant, left in our past a thousand years ago? And the beacon is calling out to the council of kangs. But more on them in a second.
Michelle Pfiffer has been digitally de-aged in this movie–and so far every ant-man movie has begun showing a de-aged pym in the prologue. Come a long way since this [prof x in x3]
Doug: The horror! The horror!
Hey didn’t you have an easter egg you wanted to share?
