The writer of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Jeff Loveness, had a humorous answer to Loki’s season finale. Peyton Reed, who directed the original two Ant-Man films, is returning to direct the third instalment, with Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly reprising their roles as Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne, respectively. Corey Stoll is expected to return for the third film, but Kang the Conquerer, played by Jonathan Majors, will be the major villain.
Kang the Conquerer has been a regular of Marvel comics since his debut in the 1960s, but he is only now making his way into the MCU. He Who Remains, a variation of Kang the Conqueror created by Majors, was recently featured in Loki’s season finale.
He Who Remains was pulling the strings at the TVA to prevent another Multiversal War, while Kang is a vicious villain in the comics. Sylvie allowed the Sacred Timeline to branch by murdering He Who Remains, effectively setting up multiple future MCU storylines. Despite Majors’ past denials that he was involved with Loki, Kang was widely expected to appear in the season finale.
Loki…what have you done?
Since the finale aired, speculation and rumours concerning the MCU’s Phase 4 have been prevalent, and Loveness had a lighter take on Loki’s ending. Loveness joked, “Loki… what have you done?” in response to a variant comic cover of Venom #35 by Kael Ngu depicting the Symbiote playing hoops with Spidey.
Here’s his original post:
Although Loveness’ tweet doesn’t mention Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, a Venom and Spider-Man crossover in the MCU is a distinct possibility, especially given that the universe is in play. It’s long been speculated that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Tom Hardy’s Venom would face off in the future.
With Spider-Man: No Way Home reportedly involving the multiverse and Michael Keaton’s Vulture appearing in Sony’s Morbius, the pieces appear to be falling into place for a possible crossover. Sylvie’s actions will very certainly result in some funny timelines in the MCU, but Venom dunking on Spider-Man is unlikely to be one of them.
