We have officially moved into Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The third film in the Ant-Man trilogy takes us to the Quantum Realm, where Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) come face-to-face with the multiversal threat, Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors).
With Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania kicking off the next phase of the MCU, fans are eager to see what happens next in the franchise, especially with the film marking the first appearance of Kang ahead of the highly anticipated Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. With Ant-Man 3 now in theaters, the lingering question is when will the film be on Disney+?
When Will Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Be on Disney+?
As of right now, we do not have an official date for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s Disney+ release. However, we can make an educated guess on the release window by looking at Disney’s history. In 2020 and 2021, Disney sent their films straight to Disney+, but the caveat was that you would have to pay a premium fee of $19.99. Movies like Black Widow, Raya and the Last Dragon, and Mulan were some of the first to do so. Soon after, the $19.99 fee became standardized for home releases for other films like Dreamworks’ Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.
In 2022, Disney fully committed to their theatrical releases and ended their Premium Access prices. All of their Marvel films eventually made their way to the streamer at no additional cost. Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness was released on Disney+ 47 days after its theatrical release. Later in the year, Thor: Love & Thunder arrived after 64 days, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was released on Disney+ 82 days after its theatrical release. Looking at the pattern from the previous MCU releases, it’s safe to assume that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be available on Disney+ within the first 90 days of its theatrical run.
Will Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Be Available to Rent On-Demand?
While Disney has usually added their films to their streaming service at no additional cost, the studio still makes them available for rent. As soon as Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is available on Disney+, fans can rent the film for $19.99.
Will Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Be Available on Home Video?
Soon after the film is available on Disney+, you can own both physical and digital copies of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. You can purchase the movie in multiple formats, notably DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD. Expect bonus content like featurettes and behind-the-scenes looks at the process of making Ant-Man 3.
What Is Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania About?
The third film in the Ant-Man franchise will see Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures, and embarking on an adventure that pushes them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible.
Jonathan Majors plays Kang, a multiversal variant of He Who Remains, the linchpin of reality itself, as seen in the series Loki. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania launches Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and plays a pivotal role in the franchise’s future going forward.
More Marvel Movies and Shows to Watch
The Multiverse Saga is now in full swing, and revisiting these films will prepare you for the next phase of the story. If you fell in love with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, we have plenty more MCU films to check out. All these fantastic movies are now streaming on Disney+ for no additional charge.
WandaVision (2021) – Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) lost everything after the battle in Avengers: Endgame. Now, she lives in a world with everything she could’ve ever hoped for, but things in WestView aren’t quite right. Will this new reality crumble, forcing Wanda to suffer a significant loss once again, or will she finally be able to find happiness? WandaVision is a series that examines the character of the Scarlet Witch in an incredibly unique way. It’s a sitcom with the perfect hints of Marvel mystery. It’s a story about love and loss, but it also opens the door to more supernatural and potentially multiversal threats.
Loki Season 1 (2021) – During the events of Avengers: Endgame, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) steals the Tesseract and makes a quick-witted escape. However, the universe is much bigger than the god of mischief ever anticipated, and he must help the Time Variance Authority clean up the branching timelines or risk getting eliminated. Loki shows us exactly how the multiverse works and the potential threat of a being who can jump between realities. While these multiversal tidbits are nice, Loki truly shines when, like WandaVision, the series serves as a way to dive into our main character’s psyche and the choices he makes during his journey of self-discovery.
Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness (2022) – America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) is on the run from a multiversal threat and needs the protection of the Sorcerer Supreme. Unfortunately, Wong (Benedict Wong) is busy, so it’s up to Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to don the cloak of levitation once again. This Sam Raimi flick shows us the multiverse on a grand scale. We see glimpses of different earths, and America Chavez helps Strange discover his flaws through their travels by seeing where other Strange’s failed. It’s the first film to actually use the multiverse as a plot point and will undoubtedly be a major factor going forward.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) – As one of the many new characters introduced in Phase 4, Martial-arts master Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) confronts the past he thought he left behind when he’s drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings give us a mysterious cosmic signal that the Avengers need to investigate, which will likely play a role in Kang Dynasty – but more importantly, it features the main character fighting a dragon and throwing a Kamehameha. What more could you possibly want?
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) – Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. While the rest of Wakanda attempts to move on, Shuri must learn to overcome her grief and forge her own path. Together, the Wakandans enlist the aid of Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) to fight for their beloved kingdom. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever doesn’t have any multiverse connections or set up future events in any significant way. It’s just a terrific film with terrific performances, beautiful music, and a heartbreaking tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman. It’s a film you don’t want to miss.
