Ant-man and the wasp: Quantumania has garnered a lot of expectations before its release, as it will begin the new chapter in the Marvel universe after the lackluster phase 4.

The story seems to follow a more serious direction which can be observed from the recent trailer, but the surprise factor was the reveal of a known Marvel foe that has left fans in an extremely hysterical situation.

MODOK to debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

As fans were tuning in for the beginning of phase 5 of the MCU and Jonathan Majors’ appearance as Kang The Conqueror in Ant-Man and the wasp: Quantumania, another a-listed villain from the Marvel catalog has shocked fans away with his surprise appearance in the recent trailer for the movie.

MODOK has been one of the most dangerous villains in the Marvel roster, with appearances in comics, animated shows, and games. Even though fans wanted a live-action portrayal of the character for a long while but weren’t sure if the ridiculously-looking villain would ever make his MCU debut. However, it seems Marvel is finally pulling off the character in the new chapter of their universe.

Following the debut of the villain in the MCU alongside Kang in the upcoming movie, it seems Marvel is longing for a different approach for the character. Although fans may be upset that the character isn’t gonna be George Tarleton from the comics but Ant-Man’s former nemesis Darren Cross. Even though some fans may not like the idea of Dan Cross’s fusion with the iconic Marvel villain, having Yellowjacket from Ant-Man 1 be horrifically (or hilariously) deformed in a subatomic state in the Quantum Realm is a very cool idea and fans hope he doesn’t get wasted during Kang and Scott Lang’s encounter.

The MODOK reveal leaves fans in hysteria

The fact that MODAK will be teaming up alongside Kang was enough to surprise the whole world, and it isn’t just the news of his arrival in the MCU but the look itself left that has left thousands of fans in a hysterical situation while garnering a lot of laughs. Fans were left in hysteria after witnessing the visuals of the character in the trailer. Although It isn’t easy to form a giant floating head as a villain in live-action and Marvel sure did their best to make the first appearance of MODAK memorable.

Considering what purpose the floating head will serve in the upcoming movie and overall MCU is still under speculation, but the giant head appearance was enough to give rise to a meme-fest on the internet, with fans making hilarious comments about the character from this brief appearance and some even comparing it with Mr. Electric from Shark-boy and lava-girl.

Although MODOK’s impact in the upcoming film is under question and it doesn’t seem the floating head will serve any substantial presence considering the heavy marketing boost for Kang, it sure seems like MCU has planned something big for the character in phase 5.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will hit theatres on 17 February 2023
