It’s all because of a tweet from a fan account. @Cinematic Universe shares a photo of Jonathan Majors, who plays Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania. Majors, who also has a role in the upcoming Creed III, is clearly gaining weight in the gym, and TCU joked that it wasn’t good for Ant-Man (Paul Rudd): “Ant-Man 100% dies in this one. “
With over 100,000 likes, other fans seem to agree. A particularly troubling sign for Ant-Man is that even one of his allies seems to be betting on Kang. Apparently, in response to the viral tweet, Shang-Chi himself Sim Liu shared the same photo with the caption: “Bro, the Avengers are right in the ass.”
While it takes more than strength to defeat the world’s greatest heroes, it seems clear that Ant-Man and the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) will have to use everything they have to defeat such a physically imposing Kang. Of course, even this defeat should remain temporary, as in the comics, Kang is one of the Avengers’ most vexing enemies and is unlikely to disappear after just one movie. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania will hit theaters on February 17, 2023.
