A comprehensive report on the film will be published in the latest issue of Empire magazine Ant-Man 3 – however, some important information from the release, which will debut on January 19, has already hit the web. The screenwriter’s words are the most commented on Jeff Lovenesswho compared the upcoming MCU installment to “dunes Jodorowsky within Marvel”. Not so small part of Internet users mocks such an analogy. The filmmaker, describing the Quantum Realm, which is to be the main place of action, stated:
It’s a fun place. There are limitless possibilities for creation here, as well as all the diversity and expressions of alien life. In a word: this Dune Jodorowsky within Marvel.
Recall that in the mid-70s legendary Alejandro Jodorowsky intended to adapt the famous novel to the screen Frank Herbert – The production concept art book alone was over 3,000 pages long. Ultimately, the film was never made, going down in the history of cinematography as “a work too ambitious to be made.” It is this fact that Internet users commenting on Loveness’ words emphasize, noting that the comparison of the story Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantomania to said version duneswhich in the end no one saw, is out of place.

Another group of commentators goes a step further: they argue that it is shown in trailers and other promotional materials Ant-Man 3 special effects are “motley” or indicate their “unbearable” intensity in individual scenes. According to these netizens, the now 93-year-old Jodorowsky should be offended by the comparison of his unique visual style to CGI in the video announcing the next installment of the MCU.
Here are the rest of the important information contained in the materials shared by Empire:
- Janet Van Dyne is said to have “a rich history of relationships with Kang the Conqueror and unresolved issues with him”; Kevin Feige he even calls the character “a hero of the fight for freedom in the Quantum Realm”, a fact from the past that will greatly affect the actions of the protagonists in the upcoming film;
- The head of Marvel Studios added that the company wanted to officially start the 5th phase of the MCU with Ant-Man in the lead role, because the latter “deserved this accolade” – “he is no longer supposed to be a sidekick or the personification of humor, but positions himself on the first the front line of the fight for the universe”;
- director Payton Reed compares Scott Lang, Hope Van Dyne, Janet Van Dyne, Hank Pym, and Cassie Lang to “the first version of the Avengers to take on the most powerful of all villains in the multiverse.”
