If you’re someone who likes to leave hyphens out of your superhero names, then Paul Rudd would like to have a word with you. As someone who stars as Ant-Man, it’s understandable that he would want it spelled the right way. This advice also goes for those who like to forget the hyphen in Spider-Man.

It’s definitely a common grammar mistake, so Paul Rudd’s attention to detail on this matter is definitely admirable and appreciated. The actor probably has had this problem crop up a lot more lately, considering Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is set to come out in less than a month. He’s probably come across plenty of people spelling it ‘Antman’ during his promotional appearances for the film.

Paul Rudd is once again reprising his role as the hyphenated hero in the third entry to the Ant-Man trilogy. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will see Rudd’s Scott Lang exploring the Quantum Realm along with Hope Van Dyne, Hank Pym, Janet Van Dyne, and his daughter Cassie. They’ll also be crossing paths with the villainous Kang the Conqueror, who we met a variant of in the season finale of Loki.

Along with Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly return to play Hope, Michael Douglas is back as Hank Pym, and Michelle Pfeiffer is back as Janet Van Dyne. While Abby Ryder Fortson previously played the role of Scott’s daughter Cassie, Kathryn Newton will be taking over as an older iteration of the character. Judging by the trailer, the years that Scott missed with Cassie while he was trapped in the Quantum Realm will be a major plot point driving the story.

Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will also be the first time that we see Jonathan Majors playing a truly villainous version of Kang the Conquerer. The version of Kang we met in Loki wasn’t necessarily a good guy, but he was preventing his much more evil variants from taking over the multiverse. Kang is going to be a major villain going forward, so this is set to be one of the most important upcoming Marvel films as it will kick off the next phase of the MCU.

Things certainly look grim for Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man in the trailer, so hopefully, we get to see him survive to fight another day in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. That major crossover event is sure to bring together a ton of heroes to fight Kang, so it’ll be interesting to see everyone who shows up for the battle. This movie will likely be setting up Kang’s rise to power, so things aren’t looking good for the Langs.

Peyton Reed is returning to direct Paul Rudd in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and the screenplay is written by Jeff Loveness. We won’t have long to wait to check out the next MCU blockbuster, as it’s set to hit theaters on February 17. In the meantime, you can stream the MCU film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on February 1 and check out The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+.
