Marvel Studios Reveals Why Kang Is A More Dangerous Threat In The MCU Than Thanos

We are a few days away from the theatrical release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the new movie from Marvel Studios which opens the curtain on Phase 5 of the Cinematic Universe (MCU), in which we will see all the power of Kang The Conqueror.

Quantumania opens globally next Thursday, February 16 and will feature Jonathan Majors as Kang, the MCU’s new great villain after the acclaimed Infinity Saga that featured Thanos. This has sparked debates over who is stronger, who is scarier, and whether El Conquistador may be a more dangerous threat.

The last of these questions has been answered by Stephen Broussard, the film’s producer, who in an interview with screen rant revealed what makes Kang even more dangerous than the Mad Titan.

The key is in the multiverse

“I think what makes Kang so dangerous is that we’re almost caught up in a war of the gods. They clearly exist in this elevated state. They have cracked the code of the multiverse, as He Who Remains explains to us (in the Loki series), and they form this uneasy alliance. This doesn’t always go well, which is why they banish Kang the Conqueror here,” explains Broussard.

The producer explained that humanity in the MCU was isolated: “And humanity, as they say, is beginning to scratch the door of the multiverse. We have been protected. We’ve been somewhat isolated in what I call our terrarium, which is the analogy we used in Loki season 1.”

“That door gets broken down, which is what you see in the No Way Home and Multiverse of Madness events. And there is a chaos that is reproduced in that; the chaos of possibilities and the chaos of different things colliding with each other scares me a lot.”

Broussard insists that the terror that Kang generates is that there are many different versions of him: “There was a uniqueness about Thanos that was terrifying. But the Kangs don’t even agree with each other, which is the exciting thing to think about. The unpredictable nature of it feels like he’s as scary a threat as Thanos, but it doesn’t feel like a retread to us.”

On February 16 we will dive into the Quantum Realm and understand these words.
