    ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ Already Has the Best Cameo of 2023

    Marvel Studios

    It’s been a minute since we last saw Ant-Man—a.k.a. Scott Lang, a.k.a. The Avenger Who Could Have Killed Thanos By Climbing Up His Butthole and Exploding Him From the Inside. But it’s been even longer since we saw the real star of the debut trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania: the old guy from the “Focus Group” sketch in the first season of Netflix’s I Think You Should Leave.

    Yes, in a trailer ostensibly about the return of Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), there are more important matters at hand. Since the events of Avengers: Endgame, Lang (Paul Rudd) has enjoyed a higher level of fame than ever before. He’s an Avenger! He helped save the world! Even if he didn’t crawl up Thanos’ butthole to explode him from the inside, as he should have!

    It’s a welcome change for the self-described “ex-con,” who we first met in Ant-Man when he was fresh out of jail. He’s traded his life of absentee fatherdom and white-collar crime (stealing money from the rich—a modern-day Robin Hood!) for red carpets and crime-fighting, as one of Earth’s mightiest heroes. He’s now back with his dream girl, Hope (Evangeline Lilly)—a.k.a. The Wasp. His old boss at the Baskin Robbins he worked at when he got out of jail (a Gregg Turkington cameo, for my On Cinema at the Cinema-heads) has even named him Employee of the Century.
