“Ant-Man 3” is currently in theaters and it has divided the MCU fanbase regarding its plot, characterization, and even CGI. However, putting all of that aside, let us talk about the one character who everyone agrees was the standout in the film- Jonathan Majors’ Kang. However, his character didn’t come out of the film intact. So what happened to him and will he be back? Let us decode it all.

Is Kang Dead In Ant-Man 3?

At the end of “Ant-Man 3” we see Kang and Scott engage in an all out brawl. The former beats up the hero and puts him in a chokehold. But Scott has a trick up his sleeve. He puts a bunch of Pym devices that can enlarge or shrink various things into the multiversal engine. Kang gets sucked into it and is not seen again in the film.

Later on, as Scott is walking down the street, he wonders if Kang is truly gone. He then experiences a panic attack thinking about how he could have doomed the world if the Kang he destroyed was the one who was stopping the other variants from attacking the timeline.

While we don’t know yet if this Kang was indeed stopping others from attacking, but we do know that he isn’t dead yet. After all, earlier in the film when Scott went to retrieve the multiversal engine that was supposed to power Kang’s ship, he didn’t die. Also, since we didn’t see Kang’s dead body so it’s best to assume that he is still alive.

Where Will We See The Villain Again?

In the post-credit scene of “Ant-Man 3” we saw a Council of Kangs with several variants of the character. However, it’s possible that the one we saw in the film was the actual Kang the Conqueror.

When Scott was in the multiversal engine, he faced infinite copies of himself who argued with each other before they agreed on a common goal- to get back to Cassie, and worked together.

Since Kang is now stuck in the engine, so he will also be facing infinite copies of himself. Also, he will definitely be fighting all of them. Note that it is also how he ended up getting exiled in the Quantum Realm, because he eliminated other variants.

Additionally, he isn’t just stuck inside the engine, he is stuck inside the multiversal engine that is inside the Quantum Realm. We saw that the ants who experienced time dilation went through hundreds of years in a short time.

So, it’s possible that this Kang will somehow be released from his prison in “Avengers: Secret Wars,” and will begin a crusade against the Avengers. Also, he will want to annihilate this specific Earth and timeline.

Since he will by then have spent billions of years fighting various copies of himself, so he is going to infinitely powerful. In fact, before he comes for the Avengers, he is going to decimate the Council of Kangs who imprisoned him. And he will do so easily because he would have been doing that for years at that point.

What do you think of this theory? Let us know.
