The Kang Dynasty begins in an superior new retro comic-style Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania fan artwork. Jonathan Majors shall be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the primary time since Loki wherein he performed the Kang variant, He Who Remains. Now, Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man should face the Multiverse Saga’s final villain, Kang the Conqueror, when he and his household are sucked into the Quantum Realm. The lately launched closing trailer reveals Kang the Conqueror to be residing on this hidden dimension together with the brand new villain, M.O.D.O.Ok.
The wonderful new fan artwork, created by Jacob Crump, combines parts from the trailer, together with Kang’s vicious power blast, and reimagines them within the type of a traditional comedian cowl.
The caption “He can rewrite existence… and shatter timelines” mirrors the warning given to Ant-Man by Michelle Pfeiffer’s Janet Van Dyne, who appears to be accustomed to Kang the Conqueror. A tagline on the backside teases “the beginning of a new dynasty” reflecting hypothesis that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania could lead on straight into Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
It’s broadly identified now that Kang the Conqueror would be the greatest risk to the MCU since Thanos. The Infinity Saga pitted the Avengers towards the Mad Titan as he sought the Infinity Stones as a way to take away half of the universe’s inhabitants to forestall overcrowding and exhausted sources, which he did in Avengers: Infinity War. Avengers: Endgame marked the top of the Infinity Saga. Now that the multiverse has been unleashed following the loss of life of He Who Remains within the season 1 finale of Loki, extra than simply the universe is now at stake; Kang the Conqueror is intent on waging struggle for management over each single universe.
One defining characteristic of Thanos’ character was that he was staunch in his perception that he was doing the appropriate factor. Even although he misplaced ultimately, his snap brought on the five-year disappearance of half of the universe’s inhabitants, inflicting a tidal wave of ramifications which were seen all through Phase Four, together with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the place some believed that Thanos was proper. Ant-Man director Peyton Reed has assured audiences that Kang the Conqueror is a grasp strategist with a thirst for struggle, so whereas Thanos’ philosophy made him a fancy villain, Kang is extra more likely to be utterly ruthless, egocentric, and cruel in his motivations. That mentioned, He Who Remains labored to forestall the extra brutal Kang variants from controlling timelines, so whereas there are outright unhealthy Kang variants, there may be some good ones.
