Disney and Marvel Studios leave no understatement. In the official press release of the film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantomania openly stated that Kang the Conqueror is the most powerful villain in MCU history to date. This means that he is more powerful than Thanos after all.
Janet Van Dyne spoke about his power in the last trailer of the film: he can rewrite all existence and destroy the timeline. But that’s not all, because let’s remember that Kang is not one person, because we have many versions here from different alternate parallel universes. Director Peyton Reed himself called Kang, played by Jonathan Majors, the most powerful being in the multiverse.
Kang the Conqueror – Kevin Feige on the villain
Why did they decide to pick Kang as the new main antagonist?
“He’s the obvious choice when it comes to the multiverse. Kang allowed us to show a new kind of main villain. He is a different type of villain who fights his alternate versions as fiercely as our heroes.
The head of Marvel Studios adds that Kang is very powerful, but when we meet him in Ant-Man 3 he must regain his power. He has a special device that allows him to travel anywhere you want at any time, but he can’t turn it on. This is where Scott Lang is supposed to help him. This is what you will see in the first photo. This is quite a unique chair.
Jonathan Majors also added that when Kang the Conqueror was first discussed with him, one comparison was made: Alexander the Great.
Ant-Mn 3 – premieres on February 17, 2023 in cinemas.
Marvel – the most powerful characters of the comic universe
Kang is powerful, there’s no denying that, but there are plenty of stronger villains and characters in Marvel comics.
