why the film is a turning point in the MCU?


    • Ant-Ma3 launches phase 5 of the MCU
    • Kevin Feige insists on the importance of this superhero
    • The film will launch a new big bad

Marvel fans are getting impatient, but that’s it, we’re days away from the release of the next MCU movie Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. It is indeed on February 15 that the feature film will land in French cinemas. This new opus should mark a turning point in the cinematographic universe.

Marvel wants to relaunch

In any case, this is what we can deduce from a statement by Kevin Feige, the boss of Marvel Studios, in a video published on the official channel of the Disney franchise. According to him, the public tends to underestimate the superhero while he plays a fundamental role in the MCU.

He explains thus: “We always like to do the unexpected with Scott Lang. He is, arguably, the most underrated character. Ant-Man became the key to saving the universe in Avengers: Endgame. So, continuing that tradition, we were like, ‘Hey, let’s use this movie to kick off Phase 5’.

Clearly, while phase 4 has been much criticized for its inconsistency, phase 5 could be more connected. After Thanos, Marvel intends to introduce a new villain by the name of Kang the Conqueror. The latter will be a real red thread for the next feature films, and we already know that the highlight of phase 6 will be the feature film Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.

A new villain in the MCU

Moreover, the Disney studio is full of praise for Jonathan Majors who embodies the new adversary of the Avengers. Brian Gay, the creative director of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania said: “Jonathan is a phenomenal actor who comes prepared and thoughtful. (…) I can’t wait for everyone to see the incredible work he has done. I think he has an amazing presence in the MCU. And when he comes on stage, you know Kang is there. He gives that embodiment and gravitas that are so essential to this character. »

A pleasure shared by the actor, delighted to have been recruited for this role: “Kang lives in his own world in the MCU. No spoilers here, but there are so many variations. (…) And the saga experts and decision-makers are really trying to use intellectual property in the best possible way. It’s a great chance that they chose me to do it. »

Marvel will have to convince the general public that it is moving forward again. Opposite, the competition is getting organized, and DC Comics has recruited director James Gunn to relaunch the machine.
