The cast is confirmed as the following: Paul Rudd starring as Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne with Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfieffer returing as Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne. Kathryn Newton will debut as Cassie Lang, perhaps bringing Stature to the big screen, this is following the teenage aged Cassie portrayed by Emma Fuhrmann in Avengers 4. As originally reported by Deadline, Johnathan Majors will debut in Antman 3 as the conquerer of time himself: Kang. This will most likely set up the Young Avengers with Cassie Lang, and bring up one of the MCU’s next Thanos level threats in Kang The Conquerer. This will lead to a quantum level sized amount of possibility. We can definitely see this film will bring the Antman franchise to a new level of intensity.
