Casting news had pegged Jonathan Majors joining the MCU as Kang the Conqueror, and many were even more surprised to see Majors featured in the season 1 finale of ‘Loki’ when previous news had indicated Jonathan would be featured in the upcoming Marvel Studios film, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Though Majors will be featured as Kang the Conqueror in the new Ant-Man and the Wasp sequel, we got to meet Kang initially as a variant of himself in the series (refered to as “He Who Remains”) and were left with a word of warning: that upon his death Kang (or potentially Kangs plural) will rock the MCU in a way even Thanos couldn’t have imagined. Given the gravity of Thanos’ presence in the MCU previously, this new threat will make the journey into Phase 4 and beyond even more thrilling as we learn how this passing of the sacred timeline threshold and reemerging of the Multiverse will affect the heroes we love, and the villains we love to hate.

Series Director and Executive Producer Kate Herron shared with Marvel.com, “It sets the table for future outings with them. It was a massive responsibility and privileged to bring that character to the screen. He’s such a different villain to Thanos. I remember what I saw in the outline when I first pitched [to direct the series]. I was [like], ‘It would be awesome if we got to do that.’ But things can change at the drop of a hat. I thought, ‘Well, maybe they’ll change it and say we’re not allowed.’ But they never did. That’s what’s so exciting about these TV shows, that they are going to interconnect with the movies in a big way. I found that really exciting, not only as a fan but just as a filmmaker.

Needless to say, many fans had wondered how the MCU would move forward without its figureheads such as Tony Stark’s Iron Man, Steve Roger’s Captain America, and Natasha’s Black Widow, and now it seems the villains are about to thrive as our heroes find their bearings in the Multiverse.

Are you excited for the potential as we wait for titles such as Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania? What other variants would you love to see in the MCU? Did you enjoy the series and are you excited for season 2? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
