The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer just got released and theories have been flying already about what Kang’s goals might be. The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 has been all about multiverses and going from one universe to another; as well as setting up Johnathan Majors’ Kang to be the next big villain that the Avengers are set to face.

The trailer focuses on Scott Lang’s team going through the Quantum Realm and encountering Kang the Conqueror. It travails around the group facing one problem after another, trying to understand the strange universe and the villain within. With this, the trailer also revealed the first look of the actor as the antagonist. The fans, however, seem to be noticing the minutest of details, forming more and more theories.

Kang The Conqueror’s Appearance In The Trailer Brews Multiple Fan Theories

According to a popular fan theory, the Quantum Realm was populated and even contained a hidden city that might have been Chronopolis, which happens to be Johnathan Majors‘ Kang’s headquarters in the future where he controls all the realms he has conquered. As a result, fans kept making the connection that Kang might reside in the Quantum Realm. The existence of Kang in the Quantum Realm has now been established by the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania teaser, supporting the hypothesis that it may be accurate after all.

Kang only made one appearance before the release of the trailer, that too as He Who Remains in Loki. His variants were said to all be defeated by the time both Loki and Sylvie had encountered him. Opening up the universe with the help of the two tricksters allowed Kang to branch out his variants, perhaps even planting one in the Quantum Realm; however, if it was on purpose or not is unclear. This, although, would only limit his powers there.

Another theory states due to the ability of the Quantum Realm to travel across time, Kang could be using and trying to take its power to conquer every other universe. Having Pym Particles and access to the Quantum Realm would only give him more means to understand time travel from the universe and soon enough, jumping from one universe to another as well. Since it is only the first trailer, even just the first look of the movie, there are multiple possibilities as to why Kang is there in the first place. However, it is certain that he would surely figure out Time Vortexes and how to bend them to jump universes.

Is Kang The Conqueror Trapped In The Quantum Realm?

Based on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania‘s teaser, it is plausible that Kang cannot exit the Quantum Realm on his own. That could be why he pretends to bargain with Ant-Man and offers to help him save his family. The Pym Particles have been shown to be the solution to Kang’s escape from the Quantum Realm, even though he might be imprisoned there against his choice.

The plot of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania might see Ant-Man deciding to assist Kang in leaving the Quantum Realm in exchange for the security of his family. In that case, Kang’s impending annihilation of the MCU in the Multiverse Saga might be directly attributable to Ant-Man.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, starring Paul Rudd, Johnathan Majors, and Evangeline Lilly will hit the theatres on 17th February 2023.
