Following SDCC’s Kang the Conqueror affirmation, Kevin Feige explains how the Multiverse Saga’s huge bag is differs from the Infinity Saga’s Thanos.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explains what makes the MCU Multiverse Saga’s Kang completely different than the Infinity Saga’s Thanos. The Mad Titan and his genocidal agenda loomed over the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first three phases. Even earlier than Loki and Sylvie got here face-to-face with He Who Stays (Jonathan Majors) – a variant of Nathaniel Richards and Kang the Conqueror – it was lengthy rumored that Kang would turn out to be the MCU’s subsequent huge unhealthy following Avengers: Endgame.
The season finale of Disney+’s Loki noticed Sylvie kill He Who Stays, liberate the Sacred Timeline, and supposedly unleash infinite devils. Regardless of the upcoming look of Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and multiversal storylines of Spider-Man: No Method House and Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity, followers have nonetheless puzzled concerning the course of the MCU and its subsequent huge unhealthy. At San Diego Comedian-Con, Feige and firm laid out Marvel Studios’ plans for Part 5 and 6, together with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars in 2025, whereas lastly confirming Kang has changed Thanos because the Multiverse Saga’s huge unhealthy.
In a SDCC interview with Phase Zero, Feige compares Josh Brolin’s Thanos to Majors’ Kang. Whereas saying there’s “no person’s shoulders [he’d] fairly be placing the Multiverse Saga on,” Marvel Studios’ president explains how Majors is enjoying “many, many alternative characters.” Learn the total quote beneath:
It’s actually spectacular what Jonathan Majors is ready to do. And all of the completely different incarnations, Variants, if you’ll, of Kang that we’ll see him do. It’s actually fairly cool… What I really like is that he’s completely completely different than Thanos. That he’s utterly completely different, that it’s not simply, ’How ‘bout… is there an even bigger purple man with a helmet.’ That’s not… you already know, that’s not what Kang is. Kang is a really completely different sort of villain and the truth that he’s many, many alternative characters is what’s most fun and most differentiates him.
In Loki, He Who Stays recalled how he and different variations of himself found the multiverse within the thirty first century, which finally resulted in a multiversal warfare received by his “pure of coronary heart” Richards/Kang, who established the Time Variance Authority to stave off different variants of himself. His demise concurrently freed all of these variants, with one in every of them instantly turning into the brand new ruler of the TVA. Presumably, the model of Kang that seems in Ant-Man 3 received’t be the identical variant messing with Loki and Mobius in Loki season 2.
Whereas Brolin technically performed two Thanos variants, the Avengers: Infinity Conflict and Endgame Mad Titans shared the identical experiences as much as a sure level. Being that the MCU‘s multiverse is infinite, Majors will doubtless be tasked with enjoying drastically completely different variations of Richards, Kang, Immortus, and so forth. It’ll be attention-grabbing to see Majors enjoying characters at warfare with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and one another. With Secret Wars confirmed because the Multiverse Saga’s Endgame, audiences might even see He Who Stays victorious as soon as once more in 2025.
