Who is Dale from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania?
Dale is a returning character from the first Ant-Man movie back in 2015 and known as the manager of Baskin Robbins.
Dale worked as the overseer in the ice cream shop when Scott was working there after being released from prison.
Despite being hired under a different name, Dale eventually found out about Scott’s criminal background and fired him.
However, we now see Dale has returned in the Quantumania trailer and he is likely using Ant-Man’s fame as clout for his shop.
