It’s a double dose of cool stuff from the world of Marvel today. First up, the latest trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania dropped last night, giving us a further look at Jonathan Majors as Kang, the next big bad in the MCU. You’ll notice off the top that the word “dynasty” appears in the trailer, setting us up for The Kang Dynasty and a storyline that will find Marvel attempting to better The Infinity Saga.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania hits theaters in just a few weeks, on February 17th, 2023.
As for comics coming out from the House of Ideas, this past week saw the release of Scarlet Witch #1, a new series featuring a Remington Steele-esque Wanda Maximoff helping out people who walk through a door for those that need it most. This first issue brings MCU stalwart Darcy Lewis into the world of comics, complete with the sassy delivery that actor Kat Dennings has given her onscreen. Darcy and Wanda have an MCU past, with both characters appearing in WandaVision, so seeing their four colour relationship develop in the hands of esteemed writer Steve Orlando and artist Sara Pichelli is going to be a lot of fun.
There is a door that appears only to those who need it most, who have no one else in the world to turn to. On the other side of this door is the witchcraft shop. Friend or foe, human or otherwise – if your need is great and your hope is gone, there you will meet the Scarlet Witch! Wanda Maximoff is familiar with hitting rock bottom – and now that she’s finally found peace, she’s pledged all her power to help others who are languishing at their lowest. But when a woman falls through Wanda’s door with a terrifying story of a town gone mad, the Scarlet Witch will have to muster her wits and chaos magic to deal with an insidious threat!
