“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” is nearing its release date, and fan anticipation is rising as the days go by. After all, this will be the first MCU movie where we will see how powerful Kang is and how much of a threat he will pose to the Avengers in the future. However, it looks like we won’t have to wonder for long because, apparently, the two post-credits scenes of the movie have been leaked online. So, let’s discuss it.
‘Ant-Man 3’ Post Credits Scenes Leak
In the Marvel Studios Spoilers subreddit, in the latest Tales from the Mod Queue offering, the moderators have posted two speculated post-credits scenes of “Ant-Man 3.” In the first, the Council of Kangs, led by Immortus and including Rama-Tut as well as the Scarlet Centurion, discuss the murder of the Kang they exiled. They aren’t happy that the variant they exiled has been murdered by someone else. So all of them take a vow to stop whoever did it.
After all, the heroes have begun meddling in the multiverse that the Kangs have built. The Council then calls on all the Kangs for their support to prepare for the plan. The scene ends with Kang variants filling an entire Colosseum. In the second post-credits scene, we see a Kang variant called Victor Timely making a presentation in front of an audience on a stage. He has a mustache and looks like he is in his 30s or 40s. Loki and Mobius are in the crowd watching Victor with terrified and confused expressions, respectively.
There’s no way to confirm if the post-credits scene leak is indeed true or not until the film gets released. However, since we will see various variants of Kang who will cause trouble in the MCU, it makes sense that Marvel Studios will want to tease their presence before outright introducing them in other projects. In this leaked description of the post-credits scenes of “Ant-Man 3,” there’s mention of four prominent Kangs. So let’s discuss them.
Kang Variants Victor Timely And Scarlet Centurion
Let us begin with Victor. He is a Kang version that went to the 20th century to begin his plans for conquering the modern era. He went to Wisconsin on January 1, 1901, and established the town of Timely, Wisconsin, under the name of Victor Timely. He became the mayor of the town and established Timely Industries there. Victor then taught his staff the basics of robotics, and over time, Timely Industries became a prominent manufacturer of technological apparatus and more. In fact, later on, their technology was used by Mr. Fantastic/Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four.
It’s interesting to note that he even established the city of Chronopolis. From there, he monitored all of his conquests. It was also a connecting place between the past, present, and future of Earth. Now, coming to Scarlet Centurion, this was a disguise taken on by Kang when Nathaniel Richards met his possible ancestor Dr. Doom and wanted to assume a disguise that was similar to his.
As the Scarlet Centurion, Kang planned on using the Avengers to do his bidding by manipulating them. He went back to the early days of the Avengers’ career and convinced them that the future was doomed if the population of superheroes continued increasing, as it would result in a major world war. The Avengers believed his lies and tried to imprison all the superhumans in their own reality. As a result, the Avengers became the only superhumans on Earth. They controlled all the situations where new superhumans were made or created.
The Scarlet Centurion then put the Avengers in another reality on Earth 616 and pitted them against their counterparts in that world. However, the Avengers soon realized what was going on and were able to escape. Later on, they brought down the Scarlet Centurion.
Kang Variants: Immortus And Rama Tut
Nathaniel Richards built his time travel machine that resembled a Sphinx to travel to ancient Egypt. There, his ship crashed in the desert, and an injured Nathaniel was rescued by Baal and the Sandstormers who dwelled there. They helped him recover his strength. Later, he used weapons and robots from his ship to take over Egypt, naming himself Rama-Tut.
Rama-Tut then made the Egyptians worship him and make massive statues of him in his honor. All this made Khonshu, the Egyptian god of vengeance, angry. But nothing much came of it. Rama-Tut ruled Egypt without any problems. In the comics, he wanted to marry Nephiri, whose brother Ozymandias was the commander of his army. There are a lot of other adventures that Rama Tut goes on before ultimately getting trapped in the Limbo realm. Interestingly, Immortus’ disguise was taken by Nathaniel after he discarded his Rama-Tut one.
As Immortus, he made a fortress to study and master the Limbo realm. From his fortress, he observed various alternate timelines and realities. His objective was to finally untangle all the temporal disturbances that he had created. He made the Space Phantoms (people trapped in Limbo) his slaves to do his bidding. Immortus wanted to manipulate events to control the Scarlet Witch and utilize her powers to manipulate all of time itself with her hex powers. For a long time, there have been rumors about the Scarlet Witch and Kang facing off. So, is Immortus the version she fights when they come face to face? That remains to be seen.
