Marvel’s newest big bad has some titan-sized shoes to fill.

Jonathan Majors’ portrayal of Kang the Conqueror will be formally introduced to audiences with the upcoming movie Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in a powerful and robust manner. Majors’ antagonist was introduced briefly in Loki as He Who Remains, whom Sylvie chose to murder while knowing that doing so would unleash a plethora of eventually strong Kang versions out to rule the multiverse.
Kang is now the focus of the Multiverse Saga. Screenwriter Jeff Loveness discussed how Marvel wants to make a villain as powerful as Thanos in a recent interview with SFX Magazine.
Loveness remarked, “To me, it’s all about humanity. “Of course, Thanos is a fantastic and well-known adversary, but he is also a large, purple CGI character. He is an extra-terrestrial being. The fact that Kang is a human being is what I really wanted to focus on.”
Kang’s position is set to increase beyond simply Ant-Man 3, as the upcoming Avengers movie practically has his name written all over it. Loveness also wrote Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, which is scheduled to be released in 2025.
Phase 5 of Marvel, which will see the MCU continue to expand in both cinema and television prior to the following Avengers team-up, will begin with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Making the villain perfect is crucial because it has already been hinted that the new movie would have significant implications for the rest of the franchise. Loveness, though, appears certain that Majors’ Kang is unique.
Kang is an elite, A-list Avengers villain, according to Loveness. “What do you do if you believe you can’t do enough to stop that? How can you rise to the exponentially more powerful Thanos, the challenge of this generation? He is practically endless, like Thanos. I believe we’re laying the groundwork for a compelling narrative.”
On February 17, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantomania will be released in theatres.
