The official trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania finally got released from Ant-Man‘s official Twitter account, and Jonathan Majors might just have revealed a huge chunk of information with regard to his role as the movie’s villain, Kang.
Just a couple of weeks ago, the Lovecraft Country actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, wherein he talked about his villainous character that is going to be appearing in Marvel’s upcoming movie which will kick off the MCU’s Phase Five. But it looks like the American actor wasn’t merely talking about Kang, as he apparently dropped a subtle hint pointing to a major aspect of Quantumania as well.
Did Jonathan Majors point to Ant-Man’s death in the new film?
Jonathan Majors talked briefly about his role as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man 3 when he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but he might have just done a little more than that.
The host of the show went ahead to describe Majors’ character to be a “Thanos caliber villain,” and claimed that thanks to Kang’s unparalleled powers, Marvel’s tiniest superhero probably wouldn’t amount to much against the former.
“No offense to Ant-Man,” Jimmy Kimmel said as he remarked that Paul Rudd’s superhero would probably be defeated in a “squash” given Kang is as almost powerful as the MCU’s supervillain Thanos. “Ant-Man’s dead,” Kimmel said in a rhetorical way, asking Majors for confirmation. But The Harder They Fall star didn’t exactly give away the secret as he teased the audience instead. “We’ll see,” Majors replied.
The comedian nudged the actor a little more as he noted how the latter must know whether or not Ant-Man dies at the film’s end, considering how he has “read the whole script.” Kimmel even asked Majors if the reason his hands were tied was that someone had specifically asked him not to say anything about the matter.
“It’s worse than that because there’s no conversation. No one says anything to you,” the Devotion star stated, indicating that he was keeping shut about the suspense of his own accord.
What should fans expect from Quantumanium?
As the official trailer of the film got released, fans know for sure that the plot is going to be swirling through the third adventure of superheroes Ant-Man and Red Queen, played by Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly respectively. And with the onset of Phase Five of the MCU, fans will also get to see the notorious and deadly villain, Kang the Conqueror.
Following the events that unfolded in Avengers: Endgame, Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne along with the latter’s parents and Lang’s own daughter had all been accidentally sent to the mysterious Quantum Realm. And Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is going to be exactly about that, as the characters explore the secrets locked up inside the Quantum Realm.
So, the movie is definitely not going to be anything short of intriguing, especially with Jonathan Majors hinting toward the possibility of fans having to bid farewell to Ant-Man.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is set to release on February 17, 2023.
