Marvel released the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and as you will see in the social media reactions below, the biggest reaction from fans isn't about Kang The Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) or new Marvel heroes (Cassie Lang) – it really more about Superman. Unfortunately for Marvel Studios, for the first time they may have been trumped in PR maneuvers by Warner Bros. and DC Films: while the Ant-Man 3 trailer was dropping, Henry Cavill officially announced his Superman return!
Reaction to Cavill's announcement, a new promo photo of him (from The Rock's Black Adam movie), and details of his new deal with DC/WB in the trades, it really is debatable if Marvel had any hope of getting Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania the kind of attention it needed...

What Inspires You?
Crazy how the Ant-Man 3 trailer did absolutely nothing to me but a still image of Henry Cavill as Superman makes me jump around like a cartoon character— Ollie 🎃 (@TheQuiver_) October 24, 2022
Did all that Ant-Man 3 footage get your heart racing, or did that image of Cavill in the Superman suit do it for you? What if you put them side-by-side?prevnext
Good Time to Be a Geek
Today's a good day with Henry announcing his big return and then the Ant-man 3 trailer which looks amazing. I am really excited to see what both the companies have coming in 2023.— Zac (@zac_comics) October 24, 2022

Was That Enough Superhero?
I love the Ant-Man movies, I really do. But didn't that trailer feel a little un-superhero-y?— Gail Simone 💙💛 (@GailSimone) October 24, 2022
Ouch. Not the best look when acclaimed comic creators start asking these kinds of questions about your comic book movie...prevnext

"Most Valuable Cameo" may go to Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania, after all... For featuring veteran actor Ruben Rabasa, who gained a whole new era of clout thanks to comedian Tim Robinson and Netflix's viral video 'Focus Group' Sketch, from I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson in 2019.prev
