Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed that Kang The Conqueror will be the MCU’s Big Bad. Kang will be introduced as the major protagonist in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and the MCU’s Phase 5 will begin. Thanos, The Mad Titan, was the big deal in Infinity War and Endgame at the moment. Thanos’ reign has come to an end, and it is now time for the next MCU villain, Kang. Check out the new image below.
In an interview with Empire, Feige revealed Kang is the choice when dealing with the Multiverse. Kang is the new king of “Big Bad” in the MCU. He said, “Kang allowed us to do a new kind of Big Bad. He’s a different type of villain, warring amongst themselves as much as he’s warring with our heroes.” Feige added, “Kang’s a very powerful person, but when we meet him he’s in a position where he needs to get that power back,” teases Feige. “He has a ship and a device that would allow him to go anywhere, and anywhen he wants if he can get it online. If only he had access to genius scientists with Pym particles.”
