Hit actor Corey Stoll is back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, returning as Darren Cross/Yellowjacket in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’. This had been speculated since Evangeline Lilly mentioned Corey Stoll in an Instagram post based on the film’s script. Now, we at Cinema Reviewed can exclusively confirm that Stoll will be returning for the first time as Yellowjacket, as he was thought to have been killed off in the first Ant-Man film, which released in 2015.
Ant-Man and the Wasp brings back the lovable duo that’s Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, reprising their roles as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope Van Dyne/Wasp. Also notably returning are Michelle Pfeiffer and Michael Douglas. Behind the camera is Director Peyton Reed, and penning the script is Jeff Loveness.
The film will explore the Quantum Realm, which offers an explanation as to how Cross might be able to return to the MCU. Kang the Conqueror (played by Jonathan Majors) is also set to appear as the title villain in the film, who is also rumored to make a guest appearance in the first season of Loki. Kathryn Newton is set to appear as Cassie Lang/Stature, after Emma Fuhrmann was recast.
All in all, this looks to be a very exciting movie, as fans have been waiting patiently for more tastes of the Quantum Realm. Kang is also a popular villain, which will only add to the hype for this third installment in the Ant-Man franchise.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is scheduled for release on February 17, 2023.
