On Tuesday, Paul Rudd, star of Ant-Man and it’s sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp, revealed that he’s begun filming in London for the third film in the series (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania).
Rudd dropped the news in a video on Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill’s Instagram account.
On Friday, critics/reporters who were able to watch an early screening of Marvel Studios’ upcoming film Black Widow, were allowed to post their reactions on social media.
As usual most of the reviews are positive. A lot of praise was given to Scarlett Johansson, in what is probably her final performance as the super spy. Other bright spots seem to be David Harbour’s Red Guardian and Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova. One criticism I have seen from a few people is the film’s villain Taskmaster. In fact, one review described it as a “Big Disappointment”.
Back in September, it was revealed that actor Jonathan Majors would play the time-traveling villain Kang the Conqueror in the upcoming film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Since then, fans have been hoping that the long-time Marvel Comics foe would debut in another MCU project first, specifically Loki.
With the series focusing heavily on the TVA (Time Variance Authority), it would make sense for Kang to show up here first. It makes even more sense because, in the comics, Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s character Ravonna Renslayer actually has a romantic history with him.
Well now in a interview with Variety this week, Majors was asked about appearing in the Disney+ series, and he didn’t exactly give a “no” answer.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
