While discussing the Yellowjacket helmet easter egg in Loki on Vanity Fair‘s Still Watching podcast, Joanna Robinson revealed that Corey Stoll’s Darren Cross will be returning in the upcoming Ant-Man sequel.
Darren Cross, also known as Yellowjacket, was the main antagonist of the first Ant-Man (2015). In an effort to save his daughter, Scott Lang sabotaged the Yellowjacket suit, deforming Cross and shrinking him to subatomic size. Up until now, the film left Cross’ fate ambiguous.
However, as evident by Ant-Man and the Wasp and Avengers: Endgame, it is is possible that Cross survived and that he can return from the Quantum Realm. Additionally, since Kang the Conqueror is heavily rumored to be Quantumania‘s villain, it’s possible that Cross can return via flashbacks or be resurrected through time travel.
The Ant-Man and the Wasp sequel is currently in its filming phase and is anticipated to release on February 17, 2023. In addition to Stoll, the film stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, and Jonathan Majors.
