Here’s How Kang The Conqueror Means More Historical Marvel Movies

A number of historically-based Marvel movies, including one featuring Kang the Conquerer, might be set up if he shows up as the antagonist in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Kang is a persistent and complicated issue that the Avengers can never fully escape from in the comics. Thus his presence in Ant-Man 3 will very certainly be only the beginning of Kang’s appearances in future Ant-Man films. Kang is widely considered as the only villain to have successfully defeated the Avengers in a single film. As a reason, the MCU needs several films to properly use him. That would open the door for future productions dealing with his goal of conquest across time since he would undoubtedly become a looming danger throughout at least one period.

The Unbeatable Kang

It’s possible that Kang the Conqueror started as Nathaniel Richards in the 30th century of an alternate Earth, during a terrible and war-torn period. However, he later came upon a time machine and used it to explore other planets. As time has gone on, he’s evolved into a more complex adversary, going across history to gather soldiers for his army, discover new scientific advancements, and basically, take over the globe. Kang is a formidable foe who has superhuman strength and cunning as a result of his time travel. The Avengers’ situation is exacerbated further by the fact that he is almost unbeatable.

After being defeated or destroyed in one film, the character may reappear in another. It is possible for several versions of him to exist at the same time due to his tampering with time. He has also assumed and shed various other identities. These include Kid Immortus, the Scarlet Centurion, the Pharaoh Rama-Tut, and Iron Lad. He doesn’t follow any rules when it comes to time travel and has a lot of run-ins with his own past, leading to all of these various outcomes and identities. Some of his many guises have him fighting on opposing sides in the same battle.

The Possibility of Kang Time Traveling



Kang, the MCU’s most potent and elusive villain, has the potential to have a major impact in Phase 5. The fact that he will outlive even Thanos means that he opens up the MCU to the possibility of time travel. This will allow Marvel to explore historical undertakings in the future. There’s no telling how long the Avengers will spend dealing with Kang’s goal or its ramifications. Consequently, many actors may play him over the course of time due to his many disguises. In the next phase, which will undoubtedly center on Kang, he may serve as a catalyst for films and television series set in various historical periods.

Kang’s Reason For Time Travel In The MCU

Most probably, the time travel in Endgame will catch Kang’s attention and lead to his quest to conquer history. When the Avengers messed with the past and created several realities, they may have opened a window of opportunity for Kang to step in and alter their timelines. Aside from that, they’re time-traveling through the Quantum Realm. This Realm is presumably the MCU’s take on Limbo, the alternate universe in which one of Kang’s personas reigns.

The fact that Ant-Man and his friends are now spending more time in the Quantum Realm may put them in conflict with Kang. For all we know, the quantum tampering may have prevented Kang from encroaching on their timeline in the first place. Kang could easily become entangled in the past of any of the Avengers or Earth itself to take over or frustrate the heroes. Moreover, Kang may begin his mission because of another unresolved plot point in Endgame: Loki.

The Relevance of TVA


Time Variance Authority is an organization tasked with overseeing every possible reality. By working with the TVA, Loki might introduce Kang into the MCU during his forthcoming show. Loki may unintentionally draw Kang with his own incursions. He might also take action against the TVA at any point in time, depending on his mood. Kang is now restrained by TVA’s might. However, if TVA’s plan fails, Kang will have no one to turn to except the regular heroes to stop him. The next few releases will provide light on why Kang has taken so long to enter the picture. But once he does, expect him to stick around for a while, searching for new planets and new time periods in which to reign.

The Future of The New Time Periods

Kang the Conqueror fits well in with Marvel’s commitment to exploring different worlds and new time periods in future films. In the event that his quest takes him back into the past, the narrative will have to pick up where it left off. Despite the ongoing repercussions from Avengers: Endgame, Kang will be a major new issue for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Once Kang’s fallout is dealt with, the following phase may focus on tracking him across dimensions and time periods to put an end to his schemes.

Kang’s Mission Can Lead To MCU Movies In The Past

Kang has a boundless desire to conquer history. As a result, any time period that Marvel chooses to explore may become a part of his mission. It’s possible that Marvel may make use of this chance to develop projects based on previously-mentioned but under-examined time periods. Heroic figures such as the Howling Commandos and Hank Pym’s Ant-Man were left behind as narratives moved to the present. He might go into the pasts of legendary figures like Thor and Loki. Here, he could come up against anything like the latter’s Viking heritage. Additionally, Marvel has many significant historical or alternative history stories in the comics that have yet to be adapted. Once Kang enters the MCU, the possibilities for historical projects are almost limitless; Ant-Man 3 is only the beginning.
