Following the release of Black Widow, the MCU has finally returned to theaters. Fans will be treated to the rapid release of three new blockbusters over the next few movies, but there are a number of highly anticipated projects also coming together. This includes Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, with director Peyton Reed celebrating filming with a creepy message.

Peyton Reed will helm his third MCU installment with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and fans can’t wait to dive back into the titular realm. Filming has just begun, and Reed shared his excitement with a photo of that hideous bunny Scott Lang gave his daughter Cassie in the last sequel. Check it out below.

That stuffed animal is truly the thing of nightmares. But Cassie Lang loved it in Ant-Man and The Wasp, presumably keeping through the five-year time jump where her father was missing. We’ll just have to see how the creepy little guy factors into the story of the threequel.

The above image comes to us from Peyton Reed’s personal Twitter account, and marks the start of photography on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. In the image we see Cassie Lang’s ugly rabbit stuffed animal, which is placed suspiciously next to some biohazard containers. Considering the title of the upcoming movie and the characters’ dangerous work in the Quantum Realm, this cryptic post is sure to inspire a few fan theories.

Cassie Lang will be returning to the MCU in a big way for Ant-Man 3, this time played by Big Little Lies actress Kathryn Newton. Fans are hoping to see her become a superhero in her own right, and now it’s clear that the ugly bunny is still around. We’ll just have to wait and see how many size-changing adventures Cassie gets into for the upcoming blockbuster.

The anticipation surrounding Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania also comes as a result of the movie’s cryptic title. There are countless questions about the Quantum Realm, and exactly what power lies within. Additionally, the threequel will feature the return of Loki actor Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conquerer, who has been teased as the next big crossover villain for the MCU. Considering what a splash Majors made playing He Who Remains, there's a built-in audience for this new character. Especially since the fandom wasn't treated to the appearance of the variant Kang quite yet.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is currently expected to arrive in theaters on February 17th, 2023. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
