The upcoming sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania has Marvel fans excited for a number of reasons. One such reason is that Jonathan Majors will be playing Kang the Conqueror for the upcoming sequel. The fan-favorite actor has already been teased as the character in the past, but this film will be his first opportunity to play the character as a major antagonist. While it’s expected that there will be more than a few Kang the Conqueror variants introduced over the next few years – fans expect Ant-Man to have quite the struggle with this one. In fact, a newly-surfaced photo of Jonathan Majors has many Marvel fans worried that Ant-Man will outright be dying in the upcoming Ant-Man 3 sequel.
As you can see below, Jonathan Majors is looking absolutely ripped. With appearances as Kang the Conqueror and a role in the upcoming film Creed III on the way, it’s understandable why. Still, though, it certainly is a sharp contrast for Paul Rudd’s much less serious-looking superhero.
When considering that Jonathan Majors will be using all of his strength when playing Kang the Conqueror – one of Marvel’s biggest villains – perhaps fans have a good reason to think Ant-Man will be dying.
Here’s the image:
Here’s what some fans had to say in response to the image after it went viral on Twitter:
Of course, it’s unknown whether or not Ant-Man really will face such a fate in the upcoming film. With several more appearances of Kang the Conqueror on the way, it’s very possible that Ant-Man could survive this particular outing. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Ant-Man 3 is being directed by Peyton Reed from a screenplay written by Jeff Loveness. The confirmed cast for the film includes Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, and Jonathan Majors.
Fans will be able to see the highly-anticipated MCU sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania on February 17, 2023.
