Ant-Man 3 Writer Explains How Avengers: Endgame Forced Him To Change Kang The Conqueror

The debut of The Multiverse Saga’s main antagonist is almost upon us! Following Jonathan Majors’ outing as Kang variant He Who Remains in the Loki Season 1 finale, the Creed III actor will make his first appearance as the main version of Kang the Conqueror next month in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Like his comic book counterpart, Majors’ Kang is an intelligent strategist with “dominion over time,” but Quantumania writer Jeff Loveness shared that there was an aspect of Avengers: Endgame which required him to change the MCU’s version of Kang in a particular way.

Thanks to Scott Lang being spit out of the Quantum Realm after five years of being trapped in there, even though for him it was only five hours, the starring heroes in Avengers: Endgame were able to take advantage of time passing differently in that other dimension and embarked on the Time Heist, where they acquired past versions of the Infinity Stones. Because Endgame made use of time travel, Jeff Loveness was forced to tweak Kang the Conqueror for the MCU, telling SFX Magazine (via CBR):

I haven’t seen a time-traveling character done with such intricacy and exploration. I’m a little bummed because Endgame did so much time travel, so you almost need to broaden him out a little bit too, maybe broaden out into the multiverse a little more, the dimensionality of the character, the limitless freedom he has while also being completely uprooted from his time and himself. Is it just going to all fall apart again because another version of him can destroy it as well? What’s the purpose of building Rome if you are going to burn it down the next day, because they want to have their own Rome?
