Official concept art from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has revealed that one character in the film was even weirder than portrayed. The film explored the Quantum Realm and introduced several strange elements, including creatures and inhabitants with unique customs and appearances. Jerad Marantz, a member of Marvel Studios’ visual development team, shared some early designs for David Dastmalchian’s character Veb, a Quantum Realm rebellion fighter. The concept art revealed that Veb was originally envisioned as a slime-based creature with a weapon that utilized his own matter. The slime would shoot out of the gun and then crawl back to Veb, who would shrink and grow as he “reloaded.”

The question arises whether the Quantum Realm rebels from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will appear again in the MCU. While it may seem unlikely, it is certainly a possibility. The Quantum Realm fighters have experience battling Kang the Conqueror and his armies, and since Kang will be the primary villain in the MCU’s Multiverse Saga, it’s possible that Scott and his allies could seek their help in fighting Kang during Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. However, this is unlikely due to the tone of the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania film, which leans towards the stranger side of the MCU, as evidenced by the original concept art for Veb’s Phase 5 character.
Overall, the concept art for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania showcases the unique and weird elements of the film, particularly in relation to the Quantum Realm and its inhabitants. While it remains to be seen whether the Quantum Realm rebels will make another appearance in the future of the MCU, their knowledge and experience could prove valuable in the fight against Kang the Conqueror. Marvel fans can look forward to seeing how the Quantum Realm and its characters continue to impact the MCU’s storytelling in Phase 5 and beyond.
