The Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to get another significant villain with a taste for purple colour schemes, whose ambitious intentions will necessitate the Avengers’ reconvening, in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

His name is Kang the Conqueror, however there is a significant distinction between Kang and Thanos, the “Mad Titan.”

In Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the time-traveling supervillain Kang the Conquerer (Jonathan Majors) plans to upset the MCU. Due to his extensive variety, Kang will be a force in the multiversal conflict. Only He Who Remains and Kang have been released; more variations will follow in the years to come. Kang is dangerous because there are so many potential outcomes, according to Ant-Man 3 producer Stephen Broussard reports Screenrant.

“I think what makes Kang so dangerous is that we’re almost caught in a war of Gods. They clearly exist in this heightened state,” Broussard said. “They’ve cracked the code of the multiverse, as He Who Remains kind of explains to us, and they form this uneasy alliance. [It] doesn’t always go well, which is why they banish [Kang the Conqueror] here.”

“And humanity, as they say, is starting to scratch at the door of the multiverse. . . . That door gets kicked down, which is what you see in the events of No Way Home and the events of Multiverse of Madness,” Broussard continued. “And there’s a chaos that breeds into that; the chaos of possibility and the chaos of different things colliding together is really scary to me.”

Kang will succeed Thanos as the most powerful antagonist in the MCU. Kang, according to Broussard, may pose a greater threat than Thanos. Although Broussard agrees that Thanos was terrible, he was only one distinct entity. Once more, Kang’s danger stems from the enormous variety of varieties and their disparate personalities.

“Kangs don’t even agree amongst themselves, which is what’s exciting to think about.” Broussard added, “The unpredictable nature of that feels like it’s a threat that is every bit as scary as Thanos, but not feeling like a retread to us.”
