How will Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania be different?
The article reveals that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be a different movie than its two predecessors and that the arrival of Kang will directly tie into and have “major reverberations that will ripple” into Avengers: The Kang Dynasty when it gets released in 2025.
“I think it has a profound impact on the MCU,” director Peyton Reed says. “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.”
It’s also revealed that this version of Kang will be different than the version seen in Loki, as the Loki series confirmed many different variants of the character.
“Kang The Conqueror in our movie is a very different character. He’s someone who has dominion over time, and he’s a warrior and a strategist,” confirmed Reed who also described Kang as an “all-timer antagonist.”
Reed added, “That’s interesting to me: to take the tiniest, and in some people’s minds weakest, Avenger, and put them up against this absolute force of nature.”
The latest issue of Empire Magazine goes on sale Thurs. Nov. 24.
