When the Quantum Realm was first introduced in Marvel’s Ant-Man we didn’t really know how important it could or would become to the MCU. Soon after Ant-Man it was then Doctor Strange which introduced us to the multi-verse idea before the Quantum Realm took on an even bigger role in sequel movie Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Marvel Head Honcho Kevin Feige has already given little hints that the Quantum Realm would be very important to the future of the MCU. He even suggested at one point that fans should be looking for hints at what’s to come in that Quantum Realm. Adding to this, we have a pile of rumors and guesswork that suggests the Quantum Realm will play a big role in the upcoming Avengers 4. The rumors and speculation revolve mostly around time travel and the Avengers trying to undo what happened in Avengers: Infinity War.
Now, Titan and Marvel have teamed up to release a collector’s edition hardcover book, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the MCU. In the book, Kevin Feige once again talks about the Quantum Realm and plays up its importance perhaps more than he ever has done previously. Here is what Feige says as featured in the book.
“At the end of Ant-Man we followed Scott Lang into the Quantum Realm for the first time. We were beginning to peel back the onion that would later be completely peeled back in Doctor Strange as we go into the multiverse. So that was our little test into that. But now the Quantum Realm is a whole other territory that we can play with to tell our stories. This Quantum Realm is much larger than we ever imagined, and there are all sorts of adventures to be had at that level, which perhaps we will explore in another film.”
Of course, Feige is not going to give us specifics, after all, he’s the guy that makes sure everyone else keeps tight-lipped about what is coming up in the future and decides when to reveal information to the fans. Is it possible that the Quantum Realm is also going to contain The Negative Zone? We have heard rumors of the title to Avengers 4 being Avengers: Annihilation, which has caused fans to speculate on whether villain Annihilus may show up as a new threat in the movie?
Whilst there is nothing solid other than a rumored title to link Annihilus to Avengers 4, it does open up many possibilities for the future of the MCU. It’s possible that the Fantastic Four may well get to explore this Quantum Realm and who knows if they may find The Negative Zone within that Realm, which as Feige says is “much larger than we ever imagined.”
