How Old Is Cassie Lang in 'Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania'? Director Peyton Reed Says...

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is out in theaters now and many may be wondering how old Cassie Lang is supposed to be!

The character has appeared throughout the MCU in three different movies, and now has a much bigger role not only in the third Ant-Man film, but also likely in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

There have also now been three different actresses taking on the character, with the latest being Kathryn Newton in Quantumania.

With the return of Cassie Lang, how old is she supposed to be in Ant-Man 3? The director, Peyton Reed, recently opened up about this question in particular.

See what he said inside…

“To us, after the events of Infinity War and Endgame, it really occurred to us that… Cassie’s going to be 18 in this movie! That’s great! The whole theme is time, and how much time he’s missed, and his main motivation is just, ‘I want time with my daughter,’” Peyton told Nerdbunker.

“And now, he’s coming into contact with the villain of this movie, Kang the Conqueror, who sort of has dominion over time. What does that mean to them?” he continued. “But I love the idea of Scott still relating to Cassie as a kid, but she’s not. She’s a young adult now, she has her own ideas about what it means to do good in the world, and she’s trying to find her voice as a hero, and she can also be a little critical of her father.”

Peyton went on about the continued relatable themes of family in the upcoming third Ant-Man movie.

“That seemed really rich, something very relatable with families, right? Because you don’t always tell your parents everything that you do, they don’t always tell you everything that they’ve experienced, that’s exciting to us, and the Ant-Man movies are always about families,” he said. “Throwing all these different complications at the characters and sort of pushing them to their limits, that I think is one of the things Paul [Rudd] and I love about these movies.”
