The third installment in Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man franchise follows Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), two superheroes who use Pym Tech’s shrinking and growing technology to fight threats to humanity and taking on the new Quantum Realm alongside Scott’s daughter, Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton). Disney Parks Blog has shared information about the character meet-and-greets, which will commemorate the movie’s release.

For example, Southern California Guests will be excited to interact with Kang the Conqueror, an infamous villain from the comics who appears in the new film and in Disney+’s Loki (2021). Kang will appear at Disney California Adventure Park at the Disneyland Resort for a limited time, seeking information on some of the fans’ favorite heroes and recruiting Guests for his schemes. Moreover, Guests enjoy the new “Ooze Cauldron” sipper inspired by the film, available while supplies last at Pym Test Kitchen.
