An official poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania offers an exciting first look: Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror, one of the next big villains in the MCU.
Thanos will be nearly impossible to beat. His crusade to hunt down the Infinity Stones and level the universe was the fearful heart that drove the Marvel Cinematic Universe for more than 10 years, and when he finally arrived to give the Avengers a reality check, he delivered some of the most memorable movie moments of all time.
The multiversal madness unleashed by Loki, Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange 2 sets the stage for some serious villains, be it Doctor Doom, Galactus or maybe even Mephisto.
One antagonist is certain: Kang the Conqueror, who first appeared as He Who Remains in the Loki season finale.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania poster features Kang the Conqueror
An official teaser poster for the upcoming Ant-Man sequel has been released ahead of Marvel’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, where footage from Black Panther 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to be shown.
The poster was shared on Twitter by AndyPark, Head of Visual Development at Marvel Studios. It features Ant-Man and the Wasp in costume alongside presumably Cassie Lang in a purple suit.
From the poster it looks like they’re in the Quantum Realm – unsurprisingly given the title – but an ominous figure hovers over them: Kang the Conqueror of Majors.
Who is Kang the Conqueror?
In the season finale of Loki, Sylvie killed He Who Remains at the end of time, causing all sorts of havoc that we’re only just beginning to see in the MCU. Just before the credits rolled, Loki returned to the TVA to find statues of the same man.
This was believed to be Kang, real name Nathaniel Richards, a classic supervillain who often feuded with the Fantastic Four and The Avengers.
His Marvel bio reads: “The aptly named time-travelling despot, Kang the Conqueror, who uses all of his future resources and technology to rule as many universes as possible while there is still time.
“Kang is his own worst enemy, constantly trying to prevent the future or undo the past. In doing so, he unintentionally creates variants of himself that sometimes hinder his world-conquering goals. Such variants include Immortus, Rama Tut, and Iron Lad.”
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is slated to hit theaters on February 17, 2023.
