As we told you in our special , the first scene after the end credits of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania takes us to the Council of Kang.


where three variants have summoned all the Kang of the multiverse to discuss their next moves: now that the Avengers have begun to interfere in the timeline , the Kangs are determined to take action to stop them.

The scene in question demonstrates that the defeat of Kang Prime by Scott and Hope is only the beginning of a greater battle. Speaking to Variety , screenwriter Jeff Loveness explains that it doesn’t matter how many times the supervillain is defeated, he always comes back stronger than before.

Well, that’s the beauty of Kang in the comics. He gets defeated a lot. In fact, he’s almost comical how often he gets defeated. The scary thing is that [Kang] isn’t defined by his failures, and he can keep coming back stronger than before. It’s not like you just blow up the mothership, beat it once and it’s over.

Loveness has been tasked with writing Avengers: The Kang Dynasty , so he has a clear idea of ​​what we can expect from him… or them , considering the variations.

It’s almost an existential threat, and the more you fight it, the worse it gets. It’s a fun, post-modern challenge that’s different for a superhero movie, and it’s going to be a very difficult challenge for them moving forward. It was very difficult to defeat one of these guys. What happens when suddenly everyone else is aware of what we’re doing?

Speaking of the “others,” director Peyton Reed confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that the three characters in the mid-credits scene are Rama-Tut , Scarlet Centurion , and Immortus …or at least variations thereof.

We knew we wanted to give a little taste of the potential of these Kang variants, with brief hints at Rama-Tut, [Scarlet] Centurion, Immortus. Maybe they’re variants of those versions.

Additionally, Reed confirmed that the last scene was just as pulled from Loki season 2 as we assumed.

We wanted to tickle the audience with the idea that, basically, “In Phase 5, you’re going to encounter a lot of different variations.”

We will keep you posted.
