Marvel Studios recently announced that they are pushing back much of its Phase Four release schedule. The delays will give Marvel fans more time to enjoy the plethora of new stories that are coming their way and give Marvel a chance to smooth out some of the bumps in the road. And the recently leaked logo for Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania (July 28, 2023) might be something that Marvel boss Kevin Feige might want to take a second look at.

The photo, shared by an alleged crew member on Twitter, shows an alternate Quantumania logo on the back of a chair. The original post has since been removed but it was too late as users reposted it trying to figure out what the new confusing text could mean.

The text, which is written in the same colors as the original logo is clearly a variant of the word “Quantumania” but it is just short of utterly unreadable as Twitter users were quick to point out.

User TheMarvelParker says it looks like this:

The basic explanation is that it is a reference to Jonathan Majors’ role as Kang the Conqueror in the Ant-Man (2015) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) sequel. The Marvel film will take master thief Scott Lang aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne aka Wasp (Evangeline Lily) deep into the Quantum Realm. There the duo will face their toughest villain yet in Kang the Conqueror.

Jonathan Majors debuted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Loki as a variant of Kang called He Who Remains. In the Loki season one finale he explained to Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) that time works in a circle and that killing will unleash the multiverse and Kang. But no matter how many new alternate timelines are introduced, they will all just end back up at the Citadel at the End of Time.

The way that time was depicted in Loki on Disney+ was as a circle. And Mobius (Owen Wilson) even explained certain events repeatedly happen because it’s supposed to be the proper flow of time. Even as the branches of the new Marvel Multiverse took form some of them were already on a trajectory to loop back on themselves and this seems to have been captured in the new Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania logo.

Although other Twitter users like Jenny_Trout seem to have caught onto the idea that this could also be a reference to Doctor Who. As they remarked the title is really “Ant-Man and The Wasp: *Doctor Who theme song*”

The longest ever running science fiction show follows an alien known as a Time Lord through time and space. And the logo bears a striking resemblance to his language Gallifreyan, which is also made of circular imagery.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be directed by Peyton Reed and bring back Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne all of whom were last seen in Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019). It will also introduce Kathryn Newton as Cassie Lang, who may become the Young Avenger Stature over the course of the Marvel movie. In Marvel Comics, Cassie gains the ability to change size after repeated exposure to Pym Particles.

Let us know in the comments what you think of the variant logo.
