Quantumania is compared to the Civil War and Winter Soldier by the Ant-Man 3 producer
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is similar to Captain America: Civil War & Captain America: The Winter Soldier, claims Marvel producer Stephen Broussard. Paul Rudd’s third solo MCU film, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, is again direct by Peyton Reed. Rudd plays the title role in the movie with The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), Cassie (Kathryn Newton), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer). In addition to being the first installment of MCU Phase 5, Reed’s upcoming movie will also feature Kang, the franchise’s next major villain (Jonathan Majors).
In a recent press release from Marvel, Broussard stated that the film would have effects comparable to those in the last two Captain America movies. The forthcoming film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania may be more impactful and emotional than the first two movies, as suggested by the teasers. The Marvel executive reveals that the third Ant-Man film shares many of the same important story aspects as Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. Both had a significant impact on the course of the MCU in the years that followed. See Brousard’s whole response below:

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is already shaping to be considerably different from previous installments, which were much lighter. However, how viewers and critics will respond to the movie is still unknown. The effects of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and, more so, Captain America: Civil War were felt in later MCU films, and it appears that the events of Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania will have an impact on upcoming Marvel movies.
