Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly discuss ‘Star Wars’ similarities, the dual meaning of the title, and the introduction of the biggest villain yet in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’

Marvel Cinematic Universe’s new Phase 5 series starts with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Directed by Peyton Reed, this movie takes most of its action in the quantum realm, where the heroes have to battle their way out. The quantum realm, inhabited by never-seen-before species, is home to various CGI-generated characters. The film introduces the MCU’s new big bad, Kang, who the heroes have to fight. The crew of the film was inspired by various other movies, such as Star Wars, Godzilla, and Them! in creating this movie. Reed, however, disagrees with the notion that Quantumania is Marvel’s “Star Wars-iest” entry yet. The film also has an abundance of female actors, which was exciting for actress Evangeline Lilly, who played Wasp. She felt supported and built friendships that went beyond the film. Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer, who play the older generation of the movie, feel that the film had its own genre, making it unique in comparison to other Marvel movies.
