Ant Mans Cassie Long has come a long way since fans were introduced to the character many years ago.
Director Peyton Reed of the third part of the film, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniamade it a focal point to show just how much Cassie, the daughter of Scott Lang (Ant-Man) and his ex-wife Maggie, has progressed through the franchise. During a recent interview with Screen Rant, Reed opened up about the changes Cassie went through as a teenager and new superhero during Scott’s five-year absence after getting stuck in the Quantum Realm after the Blip.
Reed told the publication on Feb. 11 that because she hadn’t had Scott in her life for so long, Cassie developed her own thoughts and ideas about the world’s “injustices” and chose the ones she wanted to solve. The 58-year-old said:
“As we’ve seen in all of the Ant-Man films, Cassie Lang is Scott Lang’s number one priority in life. He wants to be a good father. In this movie she is 18 years old due to what happened in Endgame. Scott still has a relationship with her as a little girl, but she is a young woman now. And as a young woman, she has her own ideas of what it’s like to be a heroine, or what injustices in the world one has to contend with; Her methods may differ from her father’s.”
Reed later revealed what made Cassie different from other Marvel superheroes. The filmmaker claimed this was because the teenager entered a field that her family was a part of, and she also had guidance from numerous people. He explained,
“She’s also at an age where she’s critical of her father, but I think what sets her apart is that it’s a family business. It’s based on Scott and Hope, and it’s based on Janet and Hank. And she happens to be nested with a handful of geniuses, quantum scientists, and a couple who synthesized the original Pym particle. But she’s just trying to figure it out, man. She’s just trying to figure out how to be a good citizen of the world and what that means.”
The buzz all around Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania started after the trailer was released last year.
The film follows Scott and Cassie Lang, Hope Van Dyne (Wasp) and their parents, Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, on their journey through the quantum realm. The group was accidentally transported to the Quantum Realm after Cassie tried to help others by misfiring radios. It stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton and Jonathan Majors, among others.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will premiere in theaters on February 17.
