WandaVision, Loki, and Hawkeye spoilers are included in this article.
When a character is killed offscreen, or presumed dead, the door opens for their surprise return later on. However, when Marvel Studios are constructing a post-Avengers: Endgame Multiverse Saga, endless doors are already open.
Wanda Maximoff was presumed dead following the adventures of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, having fed herself on Mount Wundagore while destroying every copy of the Darkhold from the grand multiverse. But even as one Nexus Being is removed from the Marvel chessboard, another enters the game.
At an official press conference ahead of the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Jonathan Majors has now confirmed that his supervillain Kang the Conqueror is a Nexus Being, just as he is in Marvel Comics.
“I think Kang is a time traveling super villain.” said Majors. They are all different beings, and yet something that we are still working on and refiners to some degree. That, to me, is the Kang gene.
Kang is a Nexus Being, like Wanda, and the series that follows it explored the basics of Nexus Events, referring to them as moments in the Sacred Timeline when Wanda becomes the Scarlet Witch. In the comics, WandaVision was shown to be capable of altering the very stability of the multiverse as warned by He Who Remains in Loki.
Wanda might be the key to undoing Kang's plans in Marvel's Multiverse Saga, putting one Nexus Being against another. Like Kang, it's more likely than ever that our 616 version of Wanda would re-emerge to share the screen with Kang in Phase 6.
Peyton Reed directs Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which features Paul Rudd, Jonathan Majors, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Kathryn Newton, David Dastmalchian, William Jackson Harper, Katy O'Brian, and Bill Murray, as well as a screenplay by Rick and Morty writer Jeff Loveness, who previously directed Groot, Spider-Man, and Nova.
The film will be released on February 17th.
