Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania director Peyton Reed has revealed Cassie Lang aka Stature’s age in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe threequel. In a recent interview, Reed confirmed that Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton) will be 18 years old in the film.

In a chat with Nerdbunker, Reed was asked about his experience directing the Ant-Man movies and witnessing Paul Rudd’s character go through the changes that he does. Responding to this, he said that it was ‘gratifying’ to see how the audience is accepting Ant-Man’s journey. He further added that according to him, they relate to Scott because he is just another normal person, who finds himself caught up in the midst of fantastical adventures.

He was quoted saying, “But I think we've all grown and what we want to do with the movies and how we see the character, the family dynamics, to us, after the events of [Avengers: Infinity War] and Endgame, it really occurred to us, obviously, 'Well, Cassie's going to be 18 in this movie, that's great.'" The filmmaker also shared that the prevailing theme in the film is time, and how much time Scott has missed with his daughter. Scott’s main motivation, Reed shared, is just “’I want time with my daughter.’” He added, “And now he's coming into contact with a villain in this movie, Kang the Conqueror, who has dominion over time, and what does that mean to them?"

Apart from director Peyton Reed, Kathryn Newton, who will be seen playing Cassandra Lang in the upcoming Marvel Studios film also discussed her character in the recent past. While talking to Entertainment Tonight on a red-carpet event, Kathryn delved into the similarities she finds between her and her character. She shared that just like her Cassie is imperfect, impatient, and wants to be a hero even if she has no idea what she is doing. She further explained, “She's just trying to figure out how to be a good person and you know making a lot of mistakes. She's kind of a mess really, yeah, and so am I.”

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the third film in the Ant-Man series following the 2015 movie Ant-Man and the 2018 release Ant-Man and the Wasp. It will kick off Phase 5 of the MCU.

While we wait for the much-anticipated action-comedy to hit the silver screens, we have gathered some more details about the film. Read on to know more.

Will Cassie Lang be an Avenger?

In the original comics, Cassie Lang does grow up to become a superhero named Stature, who has the powers to change her size, just like her father. Following the announcement of her casting as Cassie Lang, Kathryn dropped a hint about the way her character is headed as she wrote in an Instagram post, “Last night I dreamed of being a superhero. #marvel #STATURE #CASSIELANG."

Is Kang a bigger Bad Guy than Thanos?

Jonathan Majors will be seen playing Kang: The Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Talking about his character with Entertainment Weekly, Peyton Reed said that he is the ‘most powerful force in the Multiverse.’ Without dropping any spoilers, Reed also revealed that Kang in the movies will be different from the time-traveling villain in the comics. “His situation is a little bit different in this movie, which I won't spoil for you, but he's someone who, [while] we live very linear lives, from childhood to death, Kang doesn't exist that way. It struck me as interesting to take the tiniest Avengers -- in some people's minds maybe the least powerful Avengers -- and put them up against the most powerful force in the multiverse,” Reed said.
