Kathryn Newton cut a stylish figure as she joined her co-stars and production team at a screening for their new movie Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania.
The American actress, 26, looked elegant as she stepped out at the Nerdist fan event for Marvel at El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles on Friday alongside her co-star, David Dastmalchian, who also appeared in the first two Ant-Man films.
For the event, Kathryn showed off her movie-star style in a purple form-fitting sleeveless dress with a shawl over her right shoulder.
She let her outfit do the talking without jewelry, except for a few rings, and completed her look with a pair of coordinated shiny platform heels.
Kathryn, who plays Cassie Lang, Ant-Man’s daughter, swept her golden tresses back into a high ponytail as she joined her co-stars.

She accentuated her natural beauty with lashings of mascara and a smokey-eye make-up palette to finish her glitzy ensemble.
Kathryn was joined by her co-star David – who played ex-con Kurt in the first two Ant-Man films. David is stepping into a new role for Quantumania, playing a new character Veb.
David looked stylish in all black and wore one of the movie’s props around his neck.
He completed his dapper ensemble with black Doc Martins boots and styled his short dark hair messy.
Newton and Dastmalchian appeared onstage to address the crown with composer Christophe Beck, producer Stephen Broussard, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
Kathryn has also newly joined the cast of Ant-Man for the latest installment in the franchise, taking on the role of Cassie from Emma Fuhrmann, who played Ant-Man’s daughter in Avengers Endgame.
Cassie was initially played by Abby Ryder Fortson in the first two Ant-Man movies but was recast after the five-year time jump in Avengers Endgame, before being recast once again.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania finds the main character Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Cassie, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline), and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) all getting sucked back into the Quantum Realm.

Stars: Kathryn was seen posing with David Dastmalchian, who played Russian ex-con Kurt in Ant-Man (2015) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)
They interact with the mysterious Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), who will undoubtedly be a force to be reckoned with in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The next Avengers movie is dubbed Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and is slated for release on May 2, 2025.
The cast also includes returning MCU characters like Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) with Corey Stoll – who played Darren Cross/Yellowjacket in the first Ant-Man – returning as M.O.D.O.K.
Newcomers include Bill Murray as Krylar, William Jackson Harper as Quaz, and Katy M. O’Brian as Jentorra.
The third movie in the Ant-Man franchise is eyeing the biggest debut in franchise history with $280million worldwide.
According to Deadline, box office analysts predict a $120 million domestic tally over the four-day President’s Day holiday weekend.
The blockbuster is also projected to take in an additional $160 million in foreign markets over the opening weekend for $280 million worldwide.

Disney’s projections are a bit softer than other analysts, with the studio hoping for $95 million over the three-day weekend and between $105 million and $110 million over the four-day holiday frame.
The original Ant-Man debuted in August 2015 to a modest $57.2 million opening, the second-lowest in MCU history, behind only 2008’s The Incredible Hulk ($55.4 million).
It earned $180.2 million domestically and $519.3 million worldwide from a $130 million budget.
The 2018 sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp, with Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly returning as the title characters, opened to $75.8 million and improved to $216.6 million domestic and $622.6 million worldwide, from a budget estimated between $130 million and $195 million.
