Loki barely scratched the surface when it comes to the terrifying potential of Kang the Conqueror, the administrator of the multiverse’s event stream and also its guardian of sorts. Now we have confirmation that Kang will appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and fans are excited to finally see the omnipotent and ubiquitous multiversal Superbeing on the big screen. But, there is a twist.
And this twist is teased by none other than the star who plays Kang in the Loki series.
Jonathan Majors, the star who plays Kang the Conqueror recently, may have teased how his different version in the multiverse could be the antagonist of the next Ant Man 3and how this version of him can be bad news for MCU heroes.
Ant Man 3 Could have “Warrior Kang”
Kang actor Jonathan Majors sat down with Men’s Health to talk about his upcoming role as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Jamie Sawyer, the Majors’ strength and conditioning trainer, confirmed that this variant of Kang is the “warrior version” of the villain, saying the character “has developed all types of fighting skills”:

“I look at Kang and say, okay, cool. This is a certain IP where people expect this at the bare minimum. Nobody should put themselves or their family in a place where they suffer , but your own discomfort isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s growth. It’s not comfortable, but you’re here to save the world, aren’t you? Or conquer the world. Says Jonathan Majors of what audiences can expect from his version of Kang Ant-Man 3.
Since Kevin Feige has already informed fans that they’ll be seeing many different versions of Kang in the upcoming phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he’ll be “backing” the MCU in most of them. The emergence of a “warlike” variant of Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is bad news for Scott Lang and the Ant-Man team, considering they’re stepping into all-new territory.

What should we expect from Ant Man 3
As has been established in Loki, Kang informed them that he was the guardian of this universe and that his versions in the vast sea of different realities known as the multiverse were not so “good”, indirectly implying that the other versions of him were dangerous and could potentially destroy the universe to save theirs. If this is true, then we might have a horrible result in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania where we might see a morbid scenario similar to Infinity War.
