MODOK is once again trending on Twitter with a new poster that has been released which also sees Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon brought into the conversation as actor Corey Stoll is featured in both films.
Fans really dislike the poor job Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios did with the VFX on MODOK, where it was recently learned the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania VFX was placed on the back burner in favor of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, so that explains things.
Along with MODOK, other elements of Quantumania are also questionable, as evidenced by the new posters below featuring all the goofy characters (the coolest one got killed off, go figure).
So with actor Corey Stoll appearing in both films, fans on Twitter took notice of what Stoll said in a recent interview and compared Marvel’s MODOK to Rebel Moon. More below.
Corey Stoll (MODOK) about Zack Snyder's REBEL MOON:— Rebel Moon Updates (@RebelMoonFilm) February 24, 2023
"…["Rebel Moon"] was by far the biggest scale practical set I've ever been on. They built this entire village. I don't even know if I'm allowed to say that. It was a really impressively sized set. Beautiful."

“Zack was super hands on,” says Corey Stoll
Corey Stoll recently spoke with Variety and talked up Zack Snyder and Rebel Moon:
I had a lot of fun doing it. It was like the opposite of the way I shot M.O.D.O.K., which was totally pared down. There was no movie magic happening on set. We were just people. And then [“Rebel Moon”] was by far the biggest scale practical set I’ve ever been on. They built this entire village. I don’t even know if I’m allowed to say that. It was a really impressively sized set. Beautiful.
Zack was super hands on. You got the sense that a lot of the crew had been with him for a lot of projects, and they would go to the ends of the Earth for him. He asked a lot of everybody. It was a really tough shoot. But he was right there with everybody and I think inspired people to push themselves harder. And I got to sort of go in and out and in a pretty short period.

What does Corey Stoll think about MODOK?
Corey Stoll was questioned about the online response to MODOK but the actor brushed the criticism aside and said he’s “not online at all” and that he “always loved as a comic book fan” that there “would be these radically different versions of the same characters”:
Well, I’m not online at all. I think these characters are very close to a lot of people’s hearts. Everybody’s trying to make this jump from a two-dimensional, static image on page to live action, and some things have to change. Jeff Loveness, who wrote the script, and Peyton and Paul made a very strong choice to retcon — is that the word? — this new reason for M.O.D.O.K. to be. I think it really works. It certainly works in the context of Darren’s arc.
You know, the thing I always loved as a comic book fan was that there would be these radically different versions of the same characters. I was a big Batman fan growing up. Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” was this completely different character from “Year One” or whatever. You don’t have to like everyone equally. There is no definitive any of these characters.
Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon gets released on Netflix on December 22, 2023; Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is now playing in theaters.
