The Marvel Cinematic Universe is very rich, not only in terms of the commercial success it has had with multiple blockbuster releases but also in terms of content and variety. Ant-Man 3, or Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, is the latest movie to come out from the MCU that wishes to expand the variety of content much more.
The upcoming third installment in the Ant-Man series is all set to introduce the next overarching villain in the MCU, Kang the Conqueror. But not only that, it’s possibly going to include one of the best fights in the billion-dollar franchise’s history- a standoff between Kang and Scarlet Witch!

Ant-Man 3 Riles Up Fans For Larger Fight Between Kang and Scarlet Witch
When the now-defeated Thanos was first introduced into the MCU with a cameo appearance in 2012’s The Avengers, fans were having debate after debate on who it could be. As history tells us, Thanos turned out to be a murderous planet-killing villain who also claimed the lives of many fan-favorite MCU characters.
The tyrannical villain’s death at the end of Avengers: Endgame was the subject of happiness for many fans, but since Kevin Feige had other plans, there’s always a larger threat looming around the corner- like Kang the Conqueror.
After appearing in the finale of the Disney+ TV series Loki, the character played by Jonathan Majors is all set to make his official debut in the franchise with the release of Ant-Man 3. But that’s not the only exciting part of the news- Kang’s debut hints toward a larger fight that could happen.

In case fans are confused, it is general knowledge that Scarlet Witch is dead. But such an important character whose true powers were only revealed in Multiverse of Madness just cannot be killed off- or that’s what fans say. There are many in the MCU fanbase who believe she will be brought back to life.
Whatever happens, fans on Twitter are already hyping up a fight between the character played by Elizabeth Olsen and Majors’s Kang the Conqueror, they’re quite excited!-

Here’s How Ant-Man 3‘s Jonathan Majors Gets Into Character
There are multiple ways for an actor to really get into the skin of who they’re assigned to play, perhaps best displayed in the practice of method acting- where actors take the most extreme measures to become one with the character, literally.
But Ant-Man 3‘s Jonathan Majors, who plays the new MCU supervillain Kang the Conqueror in the upcoming movie, doesn’t follow that routine. His secret? Music.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 33-year-old actor explained how he used the art form to get into the head of Kang-
“Music is so beautiful because it really speaks to your subconscious, and a funny thing happens every time I begin a project and try to put together a playlist. It’s the music on the surface that you think the script is asking you for, and that can be something like Requiem for a Dream’s [“Lux Aeterna”].”
“You think that that’s Kang, but it ends up connecting to something that is so deep in my subconscious,” he said.
Fans will hope that this simple method to bring the next largest MCU threat to life will work out, and so will Majors himself.
