Ant-Man 3 Director Peyton Reed Teases Kang’s Impact on the MCU


 

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” promises to up the ante significantly in the MCU more than the previous two Peyton Reed-directed films, which told relatively “small”-scale stories about street-level heists, personal redemption, and visits to the mystical Quantum Realm with lower-tier villains like Yellowjacket and Ghost as primary antagonists. With the addition of a certain supervillain named Kang, however, “Quantumania” will prove to be a major step up in that regard.

 

Portrayed by Jonathan Majors (“Last Black Man in San Francisco,” “Devotion”), the MCU’s next Thanos-level big bad has already been introduced — or a variant of his, at least — in the Disney+ series “Loki.” But where that version was known only as He Who Remains and presented a very laid-back personality to both Tom Hiddleston and Sophia Di Martino’s Loki variants, the one who’ll be wrecking everything in sight during “Quantumania” will issue a much more formidable challenge.

 

 

Reed recently spilled the details on this version of Kang:

 

“I think [Kang will have] a profound impact on the MCU,” Reed said. “Jeff Loveness, who wrote this movie, is writing ‘The Kang Dynasty’ as well, so there’s been a lot of discussion about the impact that this appearance of Kang The Conqueror makes. There are big things in store.”

 

“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” will hit theaters on February 17, 2023.
