In Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania, Marvel really wants the audience to assume Scott Lang will die. Perhaps the most unlikely Avenger of them all is Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang. Science whizzes Tony Stark and Bruce Banner, patriotic super-soldier Steve Rogers, and accomplished pilot Carol Danvers—who ended up piloting an experimental jet—round out the supporting cast.
However, Scott Lang is just a robber who took advantage of his second opportunity. Due to Marvel’s ongoing emphasis on Scott’s family life, he is now one of the most relatable Marvel heroes of all time.
Ant-Man has been a supporting character throughout Phase 4 of the MCU, and he appears to have gained some notoriety as a result of his role in stopping Thanos from destroying the universe. During the National College Football Championship game, Marvel unveiled the last teaser for Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania.
He will finally make a comeback in his own threequel in February 2023. It’s an action-packed epic that demonstrates how crucial this movie is to the ongoing Multiverse Saga in the MCU. The trailer makes the bold claim that Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania will mark the start of a new “dynasty,” making it very obvious that it acts as a direct prequel to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty in 2025. It also seems to suggest that Scott Lang’s future is extremely dim indeed.
Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania Trailer Hints At Scott Lang’s Death
Kang the Conqueror, a time-traveling warlord who is one of the Avengers’ deadliest adversaries in the comics, will be introduced to audiences in Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania as his main character. Due to his mastery of time, Kang poses a threat on a par with Thanos, if not greater, because he has the ability to change the course of history in order to prevent his defeat from ever taking place.
There is a wonderful power disparity in the conflict between Scott Lang and Kang the Conqueror because Kang the Conqueror is an adversary who has frequently battled the entire Avengers to a standstill. Ant-Man is clearly out of his element in the trailer, which plays up this fact. In one image, Kang is shown thrashing an unarmed Scott to show off his dominance.

According to the Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania trailer, Scott will join forces with Kang in an unexpected alliance in the hopes of making up for five years of “lost time” with his daughter. Naturally, since this is a deal with the Devil, something will go wrong, and there will be a cost. Ant-Man uses deception to create a situation where they “both just have to lose” because he is unable to defeat Kang through direct confrontation.
This most likely means that Scott will forfeit his ability to maintain a relationship with his cherished daughter Cassie (now played by Kathryn Newton). The most likely possibility is that Ant-Man loses the fight in some way. This may have happened in the trailer’s closing frame, where he is shown being overpowered by Ant-Man variations and saying, “I’m sorry, Cassie.”
Death of Ant-Man in the MCU Would Be a Huge Help to Kang
In the MCU, Kang would undoubtedly become a force to be reckoned with if Ant-Man were to die. Marvel is attempting to position Kang as the next Thanos, but they are purposefully avoiding a scenario in which he is seated on his throne for two phases before taking action. It makes sense to presume that he will continue to be a part of the MCU going forward given that Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania is being positioned as a direct prelude to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. It would be incredibly dramatic for Kang to emphasise his threat by first killing one of the most relatable Avengers.
Will Ant-Man Truly Die In Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania?
Of all, it’s difficult to predict whether Marvel will actually kill off Ant-Man. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been setting up Cassie’s metamorphosis into Stature since 2015’s Ant-Man, and Scott’s passing would be the last stage in her evolution.
In the comics, Cassie Lang became the superhero Stature in honour of her father following his death. As an alternative, Marvel might take inspiration from the build-up to the Secret Wars event in 2015, where an Ant-Man vanished into the multiverse for months before emerging with a warning of the impending threats, which arrived too late for the heroes to take action. As a result, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’s opening scene would mirror that of Avengers: Endgame, with Ant-Man eventually arriving on Earth as a sign of impending disaster rather than as the bearer of information that will rescue the world.
Of course, MCU trailers are not immune to deception, and the MCU is renowned for its faked deaths. Before seeing Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania, viewers would be advised to presume Scott Lang’s destiny is far from sealed. Even then, it would be prudent to only believe Ant-Man is genuinely dead if they have seen the body and there are no obvious methods for resurrection around. The anticipation of what Marvel has in store is high.
