In Quantumania, Ant-Man Is ‘Accidentally In An Avengers Movie By Himself’

While Scott Lang played an integral part in defeating Thanos in “Avengers: Endgame” by delivering Hope Van Dyne and Hank Pym’s research on the Quantum Realm to Tony Stark and Bruce Banner, the hero has hardly handled his foes on his own since inheriting the mantle of Ant-Man. But after learning from the likes of Hawkeye, Black Widow, War Machine, and Captain America (both Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson) in his last few missions, he’s certainly stepped his game up a little bit. Although, Jonathan Majors’ Kang is still on a whole other level. The actor behind the time-traveling tyrant weighed in on what his villain brings to the table. Here’s what he told Empire:

“Kang adds tonal diversity, real conflict, and real friction. You’re being introduced to a new vibration in the MCU. There’s conflict — not just mano-a-mano, not just hero and villain, but ‘your way of life’ and ‘my way of life’. I’m coming for it. We’re in battle here.”

Knowing full well the type of threat his character is about to face in the highly anticipated threequel, Paul Rudd also shared his thoughts about the variant that appeared in the first season of “Loki” known as He Who Remains. However, he also shares the motivation that makes Ant-Man more powerful than we’ve ever seen him before:

“They’re not bosom buddies, even though their names rhyme. Kang is a presence like nothing Scott’s ever experienced before. And Jonathan fills out that cape pretty well. But never underestimate the power of a pissed-off dad.”
