Ant-Man 3 Quantumania Rating Confirmed By Disney
We’re under a month away from Disney releasing Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. As any Marvel fan knows, this movie is the first for the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s Phase 5. Additionally, it’ll be the last one in the Ant-Man trilogy. Disney started this series in 2015. Today, they officially confirmed the age rating for the movie. In fact, the MPAA gave the movie a PG-13 rating. Apparently, this is because of “violence/action and language.” But what does this Ant-Man 3 Quantumania rating mean for the movie? Keep reading to find out!
Like the previous Ant-Man movies, this one also stars Paul Rudd in the main role of Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man. Evangeline Lilly also stars as Hope van Dyne or the Wasp. The pair must work together to fight a new enemy in the form of Kang the Conqueror. Jonathan Majors will play this role. Behind the scenes, we have Peyton Reed directing while Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard directed it. Additionally, Jeff Loveness worked on the screenplay.
Disney is scheduled to release the movie on February 17th and has already released several trailers. Each has given hints about some of the movie’s events and possible plot threads. However, the Ant-Man 3 Quantumania rating is probably the most intriguing part.
Of course, all the other MCU films have received the same rating. However, these have been for different reasons than Ant-Man 3. For example, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever got PG-13 for “sequences of strong violence, action, and some language.” Additionally, Thor: Love and Thunder got this rating for “intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, language, some suggestive material and partial nudity.”
MCU Movie Ratings
The MPAA gave Spider-Man: No Way Home a PG-13 rating for almost the same reason as Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Apparently, it contained “action/violence, some language, and brief suggestive comments.” Similarly, Eternals was PG-13 because it contained “fantasy violence and action, some language and brief sexuality.” So, the Ant-Man 3 Quantumania rating isn’t a huge surprise, and it follows the trend of other MCU films.
However, one of the biggest surprises was the rating for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This movie contains quite a few horror and violent aspects, yet it only got PG-13. The MPAA gave it this because of “intense sequences of violence and action, frightening images and some language.”
Of course, while the Ant-Man 3 Quantumania rating does follow the trend of MCU film ratings, some fans may feel disappointed. A few hoped for an R-Rated MCU movie, but that’s unlikely. An R-Rated movie would stop a huge proportion of the fanbase watching these films, meaning Marvel would lose a ton of money. Even so, some fans speculate that Deadpool 3 will get this award, but we think it’s still unlikely.
Ant-Man 3 Quantumania Plot
Currently, we know some other details about the movie’s plot, as well as the Ant-Man 3 Quantumania rating. Check out the film’s trailer above, as well as the official synopsis below:
In the film, which officially kicks off phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Super-Hero partners Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Together, with Hope’s parents Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible. Jonathan Majors joins the adventure as Kang. Director Peyton Reed returns to direct the film; Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard produce.
Clearly, it’s going to be one heck of a movie! However, despite being the trilogy’s end, there are rumors about another film in the works. Apparently, Peyton Reed suggested there could be a prequel film about a younger Hank Pym, who Michael Douglas plays. Additionally, Michael Douglas indicated that he was interested in making this film, too.
