ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA Will Indeed Feature The Return Of Corey Stoll As Darren Cross/Yellowjacket
Evangeline Lilly seemingly confirmed this on social media a while ago, but reliable sources are now reporting that Ant-Man star Corey Stoll is indeed set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe return...
Sharing her excitement to begin work on Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, star Evangeline Lilly recently shared a post listing off her co-stars, including "#CoreyStoll." Many of us assumed it might have been a simple mistake, but it turns out the Ant-Man star will indeed appear in the upcoming threequel.
This is a surprise considering he seemingly died in the 2015 movie after being shrunk down into the Quantum Realm, but the theories that he might have found a way to survive were seemingly correct.
If Yellowjacket has been in the Quantum Realm all this time, chances are he's gained some new abilities (similar to Janet Van Dyne), and if Kang the Conqueror is currently calling the realm home, then we could be about to see a dangerous alliance. Remember, this week's episode of Loki featured a giant Yellowjacket helmet in The Void, a place many fans believe could be adjacent to Kang's lair.
In Vanity Fair's "Still Watching" podcast, senior writer Joanna Robinson addressed that Easter Egg, saying: "I don't know if that's an indication of something to come, but do know that Corey Stoll, in some shape, will be back for Ant-Man 3."
It's hard to believe the two things aren't connected in some way, and short of a bizarre ending revealing that Miss Minutes is Loki's big bad, all the signs do seem to be pointing to Kang's debut. Jonathan Majors is playing the character, but he's had so many personas (including Rama-Tut and Immortus), it's entirely feasible the MCU's version could be another Loki variant.
