Ant-Man 3 shares a glimpse of the council of Kangs

After the death of Kang The Conqueror in the quantum realm while fighting Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, the first post-credit scene teases the fans with a glimpse of MCU’s upcoming future. The scene comprises a plethora of Kang variants from across the multiverse, including their imposing leader Immortus and the ancient pharaoh Rama-Tut. And all of them can be seen being a little concerned over the fact that an Avenger was able to kill one of their variants.

And as the camera pans out, we get to see a large amphitheater full of different variants of Kangs, who are enthralled by the upcoming multiversal war. But even though many fans were overwhelmed by the teaser of Marvel’s upcoming future, some fans were left a bit perplexed by the sequence.

The first post-credit scene of Ant-Man 3 has left some fans puzzled

Even though Jonathan Majors was easily the best part of Ant-Man 3, some people have been puzzled by the execution of the post-credit scene. Although the revelation of various variants of Kang was able to hype up the fans for Marvel’s upcoming installments in the MCU, the way it was delivered on the big screen has rubbed some people the wrong way.

Fans were confused after witnessing a horde of Kangs going feral while making monkey noises to share their excitement for the upcoming interdimensional chaos and many found the sequence racially charged. And even though fans are assured that there wasn’t any underlying meaning beneath the scene and it was just Marvel’s usual way of hyping their next projects. But witnessing a bunch of Jonathan Majors’ jumping around while making weird monkey noises did come off weird.

Apart from this minuscule inconvenience, Ant-Man 3 itself was quite decent and even though it didn’t live up to its expectations, it provided a great introduction for Marvel’s next big baddie. And fans will hope that Jonathan Majors’ Kang can live up to the hype and deliver a phenomenal experience for the fans through his upcoming MCU entries.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is now playing in theatres.
