Black Panther: Wakanda Forever continues MCU Phase 4’s Ant-Man change with a subtle reference to Scott Lang’s post-Avengers Endgame superher
An Ant-Man Easter egg in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever continues to tease Scott Lang's new identity post-Avengers: Endgame. While tightly focused on its own story rather than on the wider franchise, the Black Panther sequel does reference the MCU several times. From major connections such as the appearance of Valentina Allegra de Fontaine to a brief mention of New Asgard, the movie continues the MCU’s successive approach to world-building. With the next MCU installment being Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the Scott Lang namedrop in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sets up the character's newfound notoriety in the movie.
