    Default Ant-Man 3: News and Rumors

    Well, we have the first news of casting in the next Ant-Man movie:

    Marvel's Ant-Man 3 Casts Jonathan Majors in Major Role

    From the article, the rumor is that Majors will be playing Kang the Conqueror. Which is significant for one character in particular- Cassie.

    In the Young Avengers comics, Cassie Lang and Iron Lad had a mutual attraction. It was later revealed that Iron Lad was, in fact, a teenage Kang. So by bringing in an adult Kang here, I wonder if they will use Ant Man 3 to set up the Young Avengers- either for a movie of their own, or perhaps a Disney+ show.

    Kang seems way too big for an Ant-Man movie.

    Eh, he could work. He would play into the time travel enabled by the Pym particles, and as long as Scott only wins by the skin of his teeth, he'd still be credible.

    Sounds like they still want a big team in AM3.

    Young Avengers could be fine.

    it makes sense to bring Kang into The MCU with all the time travel fun of End Game. But in an Ant Man Movie? I mean Kang should be a major threat and to see him lose to Ant man and The Young Avengers (If they go there e in AM3) would be a huge missed opportunity for a badd ass villain.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    I get the time travel aspect, but they need to be really careful establishing Kang so that you can still have him believably as a threat for an entire Avengers roster if they're using him correctly and not as yet another one-off MCU villain.

    It's super weird to debut a major character like Kang debut in Ant-Man which is small scale compared to the rest of the MCU. I get that's where the time travel element was initially introduced but Scott will be punching above his weight class.

    if or when something is officially announced, very cool.

    for whatever it's worth, I doubt that Kang would be used like Darren Cross or the Walton Goggins character. My guess is a bigger arc related to the quantum realm is in the works.

    Thanos had a lackey job out to the Guardians first time, correct?

    That ended pretty well.

    We never found out who his mysterious benefactor was in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Think that Kang was the one behind him?

    Maybe they'll do to Kang what they did to Thanos. Have him be the one pulling the strings behind the scenes, but introduce him at the end of Ant Man 3 in a post-credits scene.

    That's what I was referencing in my post.

    He might not even be the bad guy. fullstop.

    Well, they can just shrink him down too with the good old Pym Particles!

    I don't recall that he had any backer. He was simply greedy, and wanted the Pym's tech so that he could sell it.
