A Twitter user shared a photo wearing an “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumnia” stunt team t-shirt, and the image gives a little glimpse of what Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) looks like .
The villain appears blurry in the reflection of the helmet worn by Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and looks very faithful to the comic book version.
And given the legend, it could be the Majors’ double stuntman in the sequel.
“From a creature in ‘Eternals’ to something more in the new ‘Ant Man’, which will debut in 2023.”

Ever since Majors was confirmed to play Kang the Conqueror in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” audiences have been curious about what the villain’s introduction to the MCU will look like.
Although the star has emerged as the one who remains in the ‘Loki’ series, Kang has to be a completely different variation of the character.
During an interview with Games Radar, the star explained that:
“I’m playing a very different character than the one I played in ‘Loki.’ This time it’s really Kang, with a different mindset, different ambitions and a very different way of acting. The one who rest isn’t in ‘Ant-Man 3’, just Kang.
He went on to say that it was very easy to switch between versions.
“We’re not in a TV series, it’s a big movie production, so it was easy to adjust to the changes because the cast is different and I’m with them from the start, unlike ‘Loki’ when I only came at the end. “
Previously, Rudd spoke with Variety and didn’t mince words in praising the Majors’ work as a villain.
“I loved everything Jonathan did and what he does in our movie. His acting stunned me. It’s a lot of fun to bring new people into the group, and his enthusiasm is very visible.
Given the statement, the Majors appear to have embraced his role as the MCU’s new big bad.
For those who don’t know, Kang is one of Marvel’s more complex characters due to his many identities over the years he’s faced off against the publisher’s heroes.
Described as a descendant of Reed Richards, Nathaniel Richards was born in the 30th century and had access to a time machine, which allowed him to travel through different eras of humanity assuming different identities in an attempt to become a supreme ruler.
Due to their activities, the Fantastic Four realized their interference in space-time and they became great enemies from there, which led to a series of catastrophic events in history.
It is not yet clear how the character will be adapted, so his origins may be changed and other elements may be added in relation to his real self.
Recalling that “Ant-Man and the Vespa: Quantumania” has its premiere scheduled for July 28, 2023.
In addition to Rudd and the Majors in the lead role, the cast also features the return of Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Kathryn Newton as Cassie Lang and Bill Murray in a mysterious role.
The sequel features Peyton Reed’s return as a director, with a screenplay written by Jeff Loveness (“Rick and Morty”).
Together, the two films in the franchise have grossed over $ 1 billion for Marvel Studios.
