Ant-Man 3 is shaping up to be an exciting film, and the addition of Kang the Conqueror should certainly shake not just the Ant-Man franchise but the MCU at its core.
It remains to be seen how Kang will factor into the overall narrative, but there’s a chance that his origin story will be featured in some way. Given the heavy inclusion of the Quantum Realm within the confines of the Ant-Man franchise, the involvement of Kang’s time travel shenanigans will be easy to explain as well.
Deadline shared in a report that Lovecraft County’s Jonathan Majors has been cast for a lead role in Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man 3. Details of the casting is still unknown, but the outlet shared that “he is likely to play the super-villain Kang the Conqueror.”
Deadline also noted that “there could be a twist with how the character is featured” in future MCU films, but Kang “is likely to be one of the main villains” in the next installment in the franchise.
