The MCU is Rumored to Feature More than One Kang the Conqueror
With a plethora of uncertainty surrounding the debut of the menacing Marvel villain, a recent report suggests that the MCU is rumored to feature more than one Kang the Conqueror.
There are few characters that have been as enigmatic and hyped going into the Marvel Cinematic Universes Phase Four than what is primed to be one of their most dangerous villains.
Loki first set in motion the multiversal narrative that has become a focal point of the MCU’s Phase Four, with Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness both continuing on in its exploration.
With the introduction of the TVA, and the first-ever exploration into the Multiverse, the Loki solo series culminated in the eponymous character’s confrontation with the entities that are outside of all time and space; He Who Remains.
What was rumored heavily prior to his inevitable appearance in that conclusion was that the character would be played by none other than Jonathan Majors; who had already been cast as the MCU’s Kang.
With the death of that character, the finale pointed to the emergence of the time-traveling villain, with the final shot of the series being a massive statue representing the design of the character.
That was followed by the eventual confirmation that Kang would also be the main antagonist of the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania; with the character finally taking action against the greater Marvel Universe.
It was reasonable to assume that both the character at the conclusion of Loki, and the character set to be the main villain of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania would be one and the same; something that may not be entirely true.
According to a recent report by CBR.com, the MCU is rumored to feature more than one Kang the Conqueror, as variants could come into play in the upcoming film.
The report stated that Industry Inside Daniel Richtman recently explained, “There will be different variations of Kang appearing in multiple MCU projects.”
IT will be interesting to see how the MCU explores this, as the time-traveling villain would only increase his threat to the Marvel Universe if there are more than one.
