Although the Quantum Realm has played a role in several Marvel Cinematic Universe films, it still remains largely a mystery. However, concept art for Ant-Man and the Wasp reveals a better look at the Quantum Realm's Microverse City.
Artist Jackson Sze posted the art on Instagram. According to Sze, the art was made for Ant-Man and the Wasp, with the city appearing as Hank and Janet leave the Quantum Realm near the climax of the film. Sze writes, "I wonder if Scott Lang made it here during his unscheduled stay in the Quantum Realm."

Microverse City developed for Antman and the Wasp. I wonder if Scott Lang made it here during his unscheduled stay in the Quantum Realm. You can catch the briefest glimpse of this when Hank and Janet leave the Quantum Realm. - - - Having started my concept art career in environment design, it’s always fun to do some pure environment concepts at Marvel Studios. - - - #antmanandthewasp #avengersendgame #antman #marvelstudios #marvel #mcu #marvelcinematicuniverse #conceptart #conceptdesign #environmentdesign #conceptpainting #digitalart #digitalpainting #instaart #film #filmart #city #quantumrealm #microverse #fantasy #scifi #civilization #scottlang #wasp #janetvandyne
There's no indication Scott actually made it to Microverse City. However, Janet van Dyne survived there for several years, so it's entirely possible she got to see it at some point.
Although not exactly the same, the MCU's Quantum Realm is very similar to the Microverse of the Marvel Comics. In the comics, the Microverse is home to many characters, including Bug, who eventually becomes a Guardian of the Galaxy. The area has also played a role in several comics events One notable event using the Microverse is Minimum Carnage, which involved Spider-Man's titular foe being used as a tiny, swarming replicated force of evil.
