After making his debut as He Who Remains in Marvel Studios’ Loki, Jonathan Majors is set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2023’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
However, it will be a very different incarnation of the character that Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne find themselves up against in Quantumania, as Majors will be portraying Kang the Conqueror, the fearsome evil variant who He Who Remains warned Loki and Sylvie about before the latter stabbed him in the chest in the Loki season one finale.
Well, it appears we may have our first glimpse of the Kang variant thanks to some promotional artwork on a T-shirt from the wrap gift to the film’s stunt team, and as you can see below on Twitter, it appears that we’re going to see a very comic book accurate depiction of the time-travelling villain.

Ao que parece, é um presente para a equipe de dublês.
