With Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania writer Jeff Loveness being confirmed as the writer for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, Ant-Man 3 is set to be an unskippable part of the overarching narrative of MCU Phases 5 and 6. Because of the volume of new MCU installments, it’s inevitable some will be classified as filler content that doesn’t need to be seen. However, Loveness bridging the gap between Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty means that Ant-Man 3 is definitely not just filler.
Jeff Loveness, who also wrote episodes for Rick and Morty, is no stranger to multiverses. While Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was the first feature film that Loveness wrote, his previous credits include writing for the Oscars, the Emmys, and even the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Prior to these, Loveness ran a comedy YouTube channel that showed off both his acting and writing skills.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is bound to also be driven by Jeff Loveness’ trademark comedic scenarios and quips, especially with Paul Rudd in the lead – elements that Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is sure to share. Importantly, Kang the Conqueror’s Phase 6 plans – whatever they might be – could be fully exposed in Ant-Man 3. As the writer for both the movie that opens MCU Phase 5 and the most crucial event in MCU Phase 6, Jeff Loveness is bound to use Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania for something big.
Like It Or Not, There’s No Way To Skip Ant-Man 3
The good news is that, apart from the possibility that major clues will be dropped about Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, there are plenty of other reasons to see Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. For instance, the movie promises a deeper dive into the Quantum Realm, one of the more mysterious dimensions in the MCU. It will be interesting to see how Ant-Man’s abilities can take him to alternate realities and even cross paths with Kang. Curiously, the inclusion of MODOK in the Ant-Man 3 cast implies the presence of Advanced Idea Mechanics in the MCU, which in the comics was the company that created the Cosmic Cube, a.k.a. the Tesseract.
Ant-Man 3 writer Jeff Loveness being tapped to write Avengers: The Kang Dynasty could allow Marvel to finally maintain a cohesive narrative throughout MCU Phases 5 and 6. Moreover, this is actually great for Scott Lang, one of the most underrated Avengers in the MCU. With Jeff Loveness getting the spotlight for the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Kang Dynasty connection, the pressure is on for Loveness and the MCU to finally deliver a long-term narrative worthy of following the Infinity Saga.
