Two of the Phase 4 projects from Marvel Studios have been shifted to different release dates as part of the studio’s latest scheduling adjustment.
Marvel Comics characters Scott Lang (Ant-Man) and Hope Pym (Wasp) star in the upcoming American superhero film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Marvel Studios are teaming up to take a picture that will serve as a sequel to Ant-Man and the Wasp and the 31st installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Peyton Reed directed the film, which stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, along with Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, and Jonathan Majors.

It was announced in November of 2019 that Reed and Rudd would be reuniting for a third Ant-Man film. As of April 2020, Loveness had been hired, and the film’s creation began during the COVID-19 pandemic. In December 2020, the film’s title and additional cast members were revealed.
Filming began in Turkey in early February 2021 and continued until mid-June in San Francisco before moving to Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire for primary photography, which began at the end of July and ran through November.
The Cast and Characters of the movie include:-
The daughter of Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne, Evangeline Lilly, plays Hope van Dyne / Wasp, who inherits a similar suit and the Wasp mantle from her mother.
In the role of Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas, the entomologist-turned-physicist-turned-Ant-Man first appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the books in 1963.
Pym’s wife, Hope’s mother, and the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne are played by Michelle Pfeiffer in this film.
Cassie Lang is played by Kathryn Newton, the daughter of Scott Lang. Emma Fuhrmann, who portrayed the role in Avengers: Endgame, has been replaced by Katherine Newton.
Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror: An “alternate timeline variant” of He Who Remains, the TVA’s creator, who originally appeared in Loki’s first season as a “time-traveling, multiversal adversary.”
Despite the fact that Kang and He Who Remains are both in Quantumania, Majors claims that Kang is distinct from He Who Remains because of the different characters surrounding him and the change from a television series to a film.
New Phase 4 timeline in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been established after the release dates of The Marvels, Captain Marvel’s sequel, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania, the third installment of Ant-Man’s adventures were switched.
Because of this change, The Marvels, which was originally scheduled to release in theatres on February 17, 2023, will now open on July 28, 2023, instead.
To compensate, the previously scheduled July 28th, 2023 release date of Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania has been pushed back to February 17th, 2023. Variety reported this following Marvel Studios’ recent statements.
A New Change of Date in the MCU
When it comes to the release dates of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumani, Marvel Studios hasn’t revealed why the two films were swapped.

However, the development of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania appears to have been completed, while the production phase of The Marvels is taking longer than originally anticipated.
If these two films aren’t as tied to the MCU as previously thought, a swap like this should not cause any problems in terms of continuity.
It is likely that characters introduced in the Marvel series on Disney+ will be featured in both films. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania may feature the return of Loki villain Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors (Loki).
Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau is expected to join the cast of The Marvels in the near future (who we will see as the main character in Ms. Marvel).
‘THE MARVELS’ and ‘ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA’ have swapped release dates.
‘Quantumania’ will now release on February 17, 2023 and ‘The Marvels’ will now release on July 28, 2023.

Keep in mind that another major Marvel Studios 2023 release has been confirmed: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which is now filming under the direction of James Gunn and will be released on May 5, 2023.
There’s still room for Blade, Captain America 4, or Fantastic 4 in this year’s closing stretch, which leaves room for one of those projects that haven’t yet been given a release date.
