Reportedly, this will be the Kang the Conqueror’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ant-Man 3 is expected to be released during MCU’s Phase 5. The notorious Marvel villain will be played by Jonathan Majors.
For those unfamiliar with the character, Kang the Conqueror is one of Marvel’s most powerful super-villains. Originally known as Nathaniel Richards, he traveled back in time from the 31st century to Egypt using Doctor Doom’s technology. Ruling ancient Egypt as Rama-Tut, Richards was eventually defeated by the Fantastic Four. Instead of escaping back to his original time, he missed and ended up in an apocalyptic future Earth. He conquered the future earth and returned to a previous time with futuristic weaponry.
Perhaps, the introduction of Kang in Ant-Man 3 will also eventually aid in the introduction of the Avengers and or the Fantastic Four to the MCU.
