Marvel Studios’ has released a new Ant-Man and the Wasp TV spot that finally offers a sneak peek into the much talked about mysterious world, the quantum realm. The end of 2015’s original Ant-Man film proved that returning from quantum realm is possible.
The promo shows Scott Lang aka Ant Man’s journey to the smaller-than-small reality world into which the original Wasp, Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), vanished decades ago.
“Thirty years ago my mother disappeared,” Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne says in the promo clip. She also mentions a tunnel that routes to the quantum realm and to her mom.

During an interview with ComicBook.com, director Peyton Reed talked about the quantum realm world.
“When we started talking about the quantum realm, it’s problematic in terms of the fact that it’s essentially infinite,” Reed said. “It can be whatever you want it to be and so we needed to decide sort of what the Quantum Realm wants to be for our story and then what it is in, in sort of the larger sense of things. I knew one thing about it; there had to be a device with which they enter the Quantum Realm.”
He explained that in the first movie Scott just adjusted the regulator and entered into the infinite world. But in Ant-Man and the Wasp, there will be a tunnel, which will be of a sort of time tunnel, which will take the bug-sized superheroes to the unexplored world.
“In the first movie, Scott goes down, he adjusts the regulator and, and goes down just freefall,” the director explained. “Here it needed to be bigger. It needed to be something that was not a game-time decision and not accidental, but something very, very constructed and, and uh, and purposeful and one of the things that I went back and looked at as inspiration was Erwin Allen’s The Time Tunnel.”
It is expected that the quantum realm could play a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future. In fact, rumors are rife that Avengers 4 will follow a time travel plot to bring back the superheroes, including Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Star-Lord, Drax, Mantis and Groot from the dead.
Ant-Man and the Wasp opens in theatres on Friday, July 6th. The film is estimated to earn between $125 million-$155 million globally in its opening weekend.
