Kang the Conquerer has been established as the MCU’s next supervillain after the Mad Titan Thanos’ scourge on the universe. The first look of the multiversal resident was given to the audience in Marvel’s Loki in 2021, where we saw the version of Kang who was called “The One Who Remains” He was the Kang of this universe who was trying to save the universe from his other, more drastic and violent variants by unifying different timelines that fell under the jurisdiction of the TVA.

Kang the Conqueror was seen in the finale of Loki (2021).

But after the death of the One Who Remains by Sylvie’s hands, the disassembly of the unified timelines started to take place, signaling the other versions of Kang to this universe’s presence.

Now, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is all set to bring the next version of Kang into the MCU, and this time, the variant is going to be even more deadly and exponentially more powerful than the witty one that we got to know in Loki.


Ant-Man 3’s Director Reveals How Terrifying Their Kang Is!

Johnathan Majors had taken the name of Kang the Conquerer right from 2021’s Loki and was shown to command the TVA, which used Infinity Stones like paperweights. This was just a small glimpse of the power that this being commanded over the whole known universe. But even though he was like the god, the One Who Remains was a humble and benign being that was not a fighter and was known to use his brains and his wits to do things his way.

But after Sylvie killed him at the end of the first season, the fandom knew that it would be just a little time before the other variants invade the MCU. After almost 2 years, we now have the official reveal of the next variant of Kang in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, where we can see a more composed and serious version of the next threat to the universe. Ant-Man‘s director Peyton Reed revealed in an interview with Empire that the version in the upcoming film will be someone far more deadly and powerful than the charging version of One Who Remains. He said:


“Kang The Conqueror in our movie is a very different character. He’s someone who has dominion over time, and he’s a warrior and a strategist.”

This is an almost picture-perfect description of the Kang from Marvel Comics. Reed has promised that this version will be a far more dangerous and destructive force than the version that Loki faced before.

The trailer of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania gave us a brief glimpse into what we could expect from the upcoming version of Kang the Conquerer in the film. It was obvious from the moment that fans saw him that this version was far more menacing than what we previously saw, and this one also had dominion over time, which some noticed as this version was seen dwelling in the Quantum Realm. With Peyton Reed’s revelation confirming that this version is not someone to be trifled with, it’s only a matter of time before we see what unfolds in the film.
