Sorry, nothing in cart.
The new Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer arrived, and it’s brought fans more than a few things to obsess over—including the first look at the MCU’s MODOK Rihanna Halftime Show Super Bowl 2023 Fan Gift T-Shirt The movie’s second teaser showcased multiple reasons to be excited about the upcoming adventure. Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror remains awesome, Kathryn Newton looks great suiting up in her own suit, and there’s even a direct nod to the upcoming Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. But there was also MODOK, a villain many thought could never properly be adapted to screen. Yet, here he is, interpreted to perfection while still maintaining the serious stakes of the situation. However, the most surprising part of the big MODOK reveal wasn’t just his extremely comic-accurate design, but rather, something only eagle-eyed viewers may have noticed: the villain’s giant floating head is none other than Corey Stoll’s Darren Cross. Yes, the very same one who supposedly died at the end of Scott’s debut adventure. So what’s that all about?

Correy Stoll first made his appearance in the MCU as Darren Cross, eventually becoming the Yellowjacket in the original Ant-Man movie. By the film’s end, however, he’s supposedly lethally shrunk down thanks to Scott Lang’s risky maneuvers Rihanna Halftime Show Super Bowl 2023 Fan Gift T-Shirt Clearly, however, that wasn’t the end of the villain’s journey like many assumed. So what exactly happened to him, and what’s his role to play in Quantumania? One thing that’s important to remember is how time works differently in the Quantum Realm. The effects seem very sporadic as well—that is to say, the writers can basically manipulate it however they want. Has Cross been stuck there for months? Years? Decades? It’s impossible to say. In fact, given the Multiversal focus of these current MCU films, it’s entirely possible that this Darren Cross is a Variant and not the same one who Scott went up against in Ant-Man. One of the biggest questions is, what will he do in the film? Is he on Kang’s side or against him? Perhaps this is one of those situations where Scott has to team up with an old villain against a common enemy. Some might be wondering if the source material potentially helps fans paint a better picture of what to expect. Simply put, the answer is a solid no.
