With Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror making his debut in the finale of Loki, the stage is set for him to be the main antagonist of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The film is set for a 2023 release, and director Peyton Reed has revealed that production has already started for Scott Lang and Hop Van Dyne’s next adventure.
Here’s Reed’s post for Quantumania :

If you remember the first Ant-Man, this is the gift that Scott gives to his daughter on her birthday. With the relationship between Cassie and Scott being integral to the series, it’s going to be interesting to see where Marvel takes the characters. After all, Scott did miss five years of Cassie’s life in Endgame; though we got a small, but touching reunion in the film, I’m ready to delve into more of that relationship in Quantumania.
If anything, the movie could be building up to Cassie being a Young Avenger, seeing as she becomes Stature in the comics. We don’t know why they replaced Emma Fhurmann with Kathryn Newton (Detective Pikachu), but it’s possible that Disney/Marvel wants a more recognizable star in the role if we’re going to be seeing more of her in the future.
No plot has been revealed for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but the hype is on after the events of Loki. Will we be seeing multiple versions of Kang in the film? Is the TVA going to return? Hopefully it’s more memorable than Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is set to come out on Feb. 17, 2023.
