Despite the fact that Kang the Conqueror is slated to debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania next, a fresh hypothesis claims that the villain will appear in Eternals.
While fans anticipate Kang the Conqueror’s appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, a new idea suggests he may appear in Eternals. During Disney’s 2020 Investor Day, Jonathan Majors was introduced as Kang the Conqueror. The actor, who was slated to portray the primary villain in the upcoming Ant-Man 3, has already appeared in Disney+’s Marvel series Loki in a surprise role. He Who Remains, a Kang the Conqueror variation played by Majors, appears in the Loki finale, revealing that he was the one in charge of the Sacred Timeline in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Loki finale reveals that there will be several Kangs in the MCU. Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Lady Loki (Sophia Di Martino) find that the Time Variance Authority and the Sacred Timeline are the only things keeping an unlimited number of Kang the Conqueror versions from launching a Multiversal War after arriving at the Citadel at the End of Time. He Who Remains even gives the two Loki versions the opportunity to run the history for him, therefore preventing the cosmos from being destroyed. Lady Loki, on the other hand, disregards the warnings, murdering He Who Remains and releasing the Kang variations as well as the Multiverse.
While Kang is set to appear in Ant-Man 3 in 2023, it looks like he may arrive sooner. In Marvel’s forthcoming film Eternals, an ancient species of aliens is revealed to have quietly shepherded mankind throughout history. The Eternals appear to have arrived on Earth thousands of years ago, and have played an important part in humanity’s evolution. Due to the Eternals’ presence on Earth throughout human history, a rumour has surfaced (through Reddit) that the villain Rama-Tut, a Kang the Conqueror version, may emerge in Eternals. While Kang’s appearance in Eternals has yet to be confirmed, the MCU has all the elements in place.
It’s possible that the Eternals teaser has already set up a Rama-Tut appearance. In Marvel’s comics, Kang had many various incarnations, including Rama-Tut, a time traveller who invaded Ancient Egypt and became Pharoah. Several Easter eggs have already been revealed in the Eternals trailers and promotions, indicating that the Eternals have had a role in some of humanity’s greatest civilizations. In a scene depicting Makkari, one of these Easter eggs, an Egyptian ankh, emerges (Lauren Ridloff). Makkari, interestingly, also teaches the Egyptians how to write in the comics. Rama-Tut might be on the way, thanks to these ties to Egypt.
Despite the evidence supporting the idea, certain data contradicts a Rama-Tut look. For example, the COVID-19 pandemic shifted the release schedule for Marvel films significantly. Eternals, which is planned to be released in November 2021, was originally scheduled to be released in November 2020. So, while the Loki ending implies that more Kang variations would emerge in the MCU, the series was supposed to premiere months after the film. Loki may not be able to affect Eternals due to the initial release timeline. Furthermore, Marvel’s Moon Knight series has strong links to Egyptian history, implying that a Rama-inspired project might be in the works. Instead, Tut’s arrival may occur in that project. In Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Kang the Conqueror will appear. It’ll be interesting to see whether he expands his empire to include Eternals.
