the director reveals new information about Kang, and it makes our mouths water

Expected February 2023, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania finally go put Jonathan Majors on the front of the stage, in the role of Kang the Conqueror. Besides, we now know a little more about it!

Kang the Conqueror will finally land in the mcu

Since the end of its third Phase and the Infinity arc, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is heavily criticized. He is criticized for less charismatic heroes, less ambitious films, but also less compelling issues. A shame, for a franchise that relies on the presence of a Multiverse! But maybe it just needed a little patience.

Almost all the pieces of the puzzle are now in place, and the big bad of the next Phases, Kang the Conqueror, will finally be introduced in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which will be released in our dark rooms on February 15, 2023. This one will be interpreted by Jonathan Majors, whom you could see rather briefly as his variant He Who Remains, in season 1 of Loki. Alongside MODOK, this one should try to escape from the quantum realm. And he may well get there, given the importance he will have in the MCU.

A “very different” character from the variant that appeared in loki

In a recent interview with Empire, Peyton Reed returned to the role that Kang the Conqueror will play within the MCU. In case you still doubted it, the director of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania reaffirms that the character played by Jonathan Majors “will have a profound impact on the MCU”, and it will be interesting to “taking the smallest and weakest Avenger in some people’s minds, [Ant-Man] and to oppose it to an absolute force of nature”. Peyton Reed is also keen to emphasize that Kang will be “a very different character” of its variant that appeared in Loki : “He is someone who has control over time, he is a warrior and a strategist”. The director therefore manages to tease us with an overpowered character, while maintaining a thick layer of mystery around him.

Moreover, many surprises should await us: “Jeff Loveness, who wrote this film, writes [Avengers :] The Kang Dynasty, so there’s been a lot of talk about what impact this appearance of Kang the Conqueror will have. There are big surprises planned”. We don’t know about you but on our side, we can’t wait to find out what these surprises are! As a reminder, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be released on February 15, 2023.
