Newshub's Finn Hogan chats with actors Paul Rudd, Jonathan Majors about the new Marvel Ant-Man Quantumania film

The latest entry in the multi-billion-dollar Marvel movie empire has arrived with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, delivering a new world to rescue and a new villain who'll dominate our screens for years to come. 

The world's smallest superhero has just a whole lot smaller.

The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania film will see the insectoid Avenger sucked into the microscopic quantum realm. Making it a trial for both the actor and the hero who plays him.

"The challenge is to act against like blue screens and look at tape marks and imagine like, 'oh, okay, this is when this giant alien building is going to fly. Wow. Huh?' And so to try and figure out what that would be and how you would really react to something like that," actor Paul Rudd told Newshub's Finn Hogan.

Actor Jonathan Majors, who plays Kang the Conqueror in the film, is a force of nature who inherits the mantle of Marvel's greatest villain Thanos, who was played by Josh Brolin.

"I would say it's more of a passing of the baton. I am only playing Kang now because Josh Brolin did such a beautiful job as Thanos," Majors said.

Majors wasn't the only fanboy on set of the film with even Rudd being starstruck by some of the cast members.

"Even though I have now worked with Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer several times it's impossible not to [get starstruck] if you're filming and you're in the scene and you look at Michael Douglas and then think 'Oh, my God. Wall Street'," Rudd said.

But after saving the universe, multiple times it sounds like Ant-Man is ready to kick back for once.

When Hogan suggested an Ant-Man 4 in New Zealand called Minibar Mania, Rudd was completely on board with the idea.

"Hanging out with Neil Finn, have a nice drink [and] watch some beautiful sunsets. If you just let me know and I'll just hop on a flight because that sounds like a pretty good deal," Rudd said.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is ready to watch in cinemas now.
