Watch the new trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania
A new trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania has revealed the arrival of classic Marvel character MODOK to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
MODOK, an acronym for Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing, is a fan-favorite villain, recognizable as a giant floating head with a mechanized body, recently portrayed by Patton Oswalt in his own Hulu animated series.

However, this version of MODOK is being played by House of Cards star Corey Stoll, who is returning to the MCU after playing the villain Yellowjacket in 2015’s Ant-Man.
While fans were excited to see MODOK, they were also concerned about what it meant for Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang aka Ant-Man.
“Was that MODOK? RIP Scott Lang,” wrote one concerned fan on Reddit.

“My man Scott is done if he ain’t dead the guy is in a coma or something,” another wrote.
The new two-minute clip, released Monday, shows Rudd’s character taking on supervillain Kang The Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors.
The two enter into a shady deal after Rudd’s daughter Cassie, played by Kathryn Newton, is apparently lost in the Quantum Realm.
“You are an interesting man, Scott Lang. You’re an Avenger, you have a daughter, but you’ve wasted a lot of time, like me,” Majors is heard saying.
“We could help each other with that.”
“Who are you?” Rudd answers.
“I’m the man who can give you the one thing you want…time,” Majors replies.
The trailer shows Ant-Man split into hundreds of individual copies, some large and small, and screaming as he disintegrates, amidst explosive CGI battle scenes.
“We had a deal,” says Rudd, before the pair get into a vicious fight, with Majors asking him, “Did you think you could win?”

“I don’t have to win, we both have to lose,” says Rudd.
In addition to Rudd, in the third installment of the superhero franchise, Evangeline Lilly reprises her role as The Wasp and Michelle Pfieffer as Janet Van Dyne.
Comedian Bill Murray was glimpsed in an earlier trailer in an as-yet-undisclosed villain role.
Kang the Conqueror first appeared in the first season of the Marvel spin-off Loki, depicted as having conquered many worlds during the Multiversal War. He will be the focal point of 2025’s Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is in theaters and IMAX starting February 17. Watch a trailer below.
