‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’: Put up-Credit Scenes and Marvel Cameo, Defined


When it hit theaters on Feb. 17, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania kicked off Section 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, sending Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and his household on a colourful journey into the Quantum Realm. That is the third solo Ant-Man outing and the thirty first MCU film total, and it has post-credits scenes that’ll blow your thoughts. It is presently unclear when the film will arrive on Disney Plus.

“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is quite a lot of enjoyable, carried alongside by an enthralling gang of goofball heroes dropped right into a extraordinary world to face a villain who’s sufficiently big to vary your complete franchise,” CNET’s Wealthy Knightwell wrote in his evaluate. “The plot won’t be something revolutionary, however the trippy visuals and attention-grabbing themes show that larger is not all the time higher.”

The search places Scott Lang within the crosshairs of Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), a time-traveling supervillain from the distant future who’s been teased because the subsequent main hazard to the Avengers. Let’s attempt to unravel the extra scenes and what they imply for the MCU. Multiversal SPOILERS forward. 

Mid-credits: Council of Kangs

Within the wake of this film’s Kang getting sucked into the malfunctioning multiversal engine core, a trio of Kang Variants focus on gathering their multiversal counterparts. Two of those guys resemble the traditional Egypt-ruling Rama-Tut and timeline-pruning Immortus as they seem within the comics, whereas the cyborg-looking man could also be primarily based on the armored Scarlet Centurion.

They’re displeased that an Avenger killed Kang, whom they exiled to the Quantum Realm, and that the heroes are touching the multiverse — presumably a reference to the timeline tomfoolery of Spider-Man: No Means Dwelling, Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity and What If…?

“And if we allow them to, they’ll take every little thing we have constructed,” says the raspy Immortus, who looks as if the trio’s chief. “So let’s cease losing time. We’re late.”

He notes that he referred to as “all of us.” Their chamber opens as much as reveal a large enviornment stuffed with Variants — Kangs from branching timelines — of seemingly infinite temperaments and species, with much more arriving via time portals.

Appears Kang-tastic. What does this imply?

Our heroes will face a military of Kangs who need to dominate the multiverse. Nonetheless, the Kang Variants we met within the Loki season 1 finale and this film urged that these guys do not actually get alongside, possible because of their megalomaniacal tendencies, so any alliance is more likely to be shaky.

Kang throws his arms in the air and reveals his masterplan.

Kang’s goal, in a nutshell. Glorious supervillain pose too.

Marvel Comics

The identical is true of the comedian supply materials, the place one Kang — Kang Prime — labored with some Variants to get rid of their counterparts. He then killed these allies and changed them with robotic doppelgangers to make sure his management over all timelines. It did not actually work out for him although, as a result of schemes that contain ruling a number of realities are likely to spiral uncontrolled.

It is possible the identical shall be true of the MCU, however the truth that Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is scheduled for a Could 2025 theatrical launch suggests he (or they) can have some success. This film’s Kang could return, because the multiversal engine core may have spat him out someplace (or somewhen) else fairly than killing him.

Put up-credits: Loki’s hunt

We bounce to the early 1900s, to seek out our previous buddies Loki and Mobius (Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson) trying dapper as they attend the stage present of 1 Victor Well timed — a man who appears to be like precisely like Kang.

“Time is every little thing,” says Well timed, with supervillainous gravitas. “It shapes our lives, however maybe we will form it.”

Loki appears transfixed by this man, however Mobius is lower than impressed.

“You made him sound like a terrifying determine,” the Time Variance Authority (TVA) agent says.

“He’s,” Loki responds.

Loki, hurray! Why is he on this?

Once we final noticed Loki in the season 1 finale of his self-titled Disney Plus present, his feminine Variant Sylvie threw him right into a time portal and killed He Who Stays, a Kang Variant who managed the movement of time and prevented any branches. 


He Who Stays wasn’t mendacity about being nicer than his Variants.

Marvel Studios

The timeline dictator’s loss of life restored the multiverse and He Who Stays’ personal Variants, which had been saved below management by his efforts, had been in a position to run amok once more.

Loki ended up again within the drab workplaces of the TVA, the place he tried to warn Mobius about the specter of many Kangs. 

“Somebody is coming. Numerous totally different variations of a really harmful particular person,” he tells Mobius and firm. “And so they’re all set on conflict. We have to put together.”

Loki has apparently satisfied Mobius to affix him in chasing Kang.


Nonetheless, this model of Mobius cannot keep in mind Loki. There’s additionally a statue of Kang carrying his comedian costume towering over the TVA — it appears the God of Mischief was despatched to a timeline wherein the company is managed by a Kang Variant that is cool with letting the timeline department.

This film’s post-credits scene means that he satisfied Mobius to affix him in his hunt for Kang.

However why is Loki after Victor Well timed?

It is unclear why Loki is looking this specific Kang Variant, but it surely’s attainable he is a model of the character from earlier in his profession. He would possibly attempt to cease the villain’s profession earlier than it even will get began. 

As soon as once more, the upcoming film Avengers: The Kang Dynasty suggests it will not go easily. We’ll possible discover out extra in Loki season 2, which is scheduled to hit Disney Plus this summer time.

Victor Timely addresses a crowd with his hand in the air like a puppet master.

Nice swimsuit, however Kang nonetheless offers off main supervillain vibes in his Victory Well timed persona. It is in all probability the puppet grasp pose.

Marvel Comics

Within the comics, Victor Well timed is an identification adopted by Kang Prime after he traveled again to 1901 and established the city of Well timed, Wisconsin, as a protected haven from which he may hatch his schemes. He additionally seeded his futuristic know-how into all types of equipment, planning to grab management over it later within the timeline. It additionally gave him a foundational function within the growth of the Marvel Universe.

The title can be a bit meta because the firm we all know as Marvel Comics was established as Well timed Publications in 1939. It solely began going by Marvel within the ’60s.

It is attainable that the MCU Well timed can be this continuity’s Kang Prime and hidden in an period the place he can plan acts of villainy lengthy earlier than the Avengers exist to trouble him. That’d clarify why Loki is after him.

This man may be the identical Kang we met in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (the ultimate battle left his destiny unclear) — it would be extra narratively satisfying if the model of the character we hung out (ha) with turned out to be Kang Prime. 

One other wrinkle is that comedian Kang could also be a descendant of the Incredible 4’s Reed Richards/Mr. Incredible and archvillain Physician Doom (in-universe information are fuzzy although). Because the superteam is scheduled to make its MCU debut in 2025, it would lean into this connection.

It is kinda exhausting to make certain what the take care of all these Kangs is once they all have the identical face. A minimum of it retains the door open for Jonathan Majors’ MCU supremacy.
