Even though it was “Loki” that introduced Kang to the MCU, but “Ant-Man 3” made audiences familiar with his story, well at least of one of them. But there’s one thing the movie didn’t tell viewers about, instead it opted to just give a little hint so that when the time comes, the pieces fit together. So let us tell you about the neat continuity pattern between this film and “Doctor Strange 2.”

The Continuity Between Ant-Man 3 And Doctor  Strange 2

Marvel comic book fans know that Reed Richards or Mr. Fantastic is the ancestor of Nathaniel Richards/ Kang. However, this detail was left out of the “Ant-Man 3” film. But there’s a nice continuity trick that the movie used to signal a slight connection between them.

In the post-credits scene of the film, when the Council of Kangs are teleporting in, they do so in the same manner Reed Richards did in “Doctor Strange 2.” Although the Mr. Fantastic of that movie was from Earth-838, but it’s possible that the tech developed by all the Reed Richards remains the same in every universe.

At least, it’s best to assume that for now. More importantly, it signals that the technology invented by Reed is going to be used in the future as well.

Will Kang Be A Villain In MCU’s Fantastic Four Film?

Details on the upcoming “Fantastic Four” film are sparse. Marvel Studios has reportedly only begun the casting process. As for the plot there’s rumors that the movie will take place in another era. However, there has been no confirmation on who the villain might be.

Some fans are speculating that it could be Galactus, while others think that it might be Doctor Doom. However, it’s possible that another version of Kang is the antagonist in that film.

After all, it will show viewers another version of Kang (separate from the one in “Ant-Man 3”) and also connect to the overarching threat of him.

We might even get to know why both of them use the same technology for teleporting. Also, the movie can establish that Kang is a successor of Reed Richards. This will flesh out his and Mr Fantastic’s story more.
