Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania end credits scenes: What happened to Kang?

It’s now a ritual for audiences to linger after the end credits roll for superhero movies, as they know there will be one or two (or in some cases, more) “stingers” that tease about the endless sequels and cinematic universes that dominate the pop culture landscape. Marvel perfected the art of the end credits sequence in The Avengers, with the reveal of Thanos as the architect behind a grand scheme to collect all the Infinity Stones.

Anticipation is high with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the first film in the franchise’s Phase 5 and a pivotal launching pad for the MCU’s next big bad, the time-traveling villain known as Kang. We can confirm that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has end credits scenes that involve Kang and brings in fan favorites from a certain Disney+ Marvel show. To find out what happens, keep reading!

How many post-credit scenes are there in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania?

There are 2 post-credit end scenes in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The first one appears shortly after the main cast credits are shown with psychedelic imagery behind them. The second scene occurs after all of the credits have been displayed. Both are short and run approximately one minute each.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania end credits scene 1: a council of Kangs

Kang smiles in Loki.

We won’t explain the entire ending to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but we need to spoil that Kang (Jonathan Majors) does die in the end by a combined assault by a badly injured Ant-Man and the Wasp. Well, at least a variant of him does. In the film, he mentions being sent to the Quantum realm as punishment by other Kangs. Well, the first end credits scene, which appears after the main cast credits roll but before the crew credits appear, features them…lots and lots of them.

The scene opens with three figures in a cave, all covered in shadow. One of them, who is quickly revealed to be the Kang variant Immortus, asks if the Kang Ant-Man fought is dead. Rama-Tut (Majors, in a ridiculous Pharaoh outfit), a Kang variant from ancient Egypt, steps forward and confirms Kang’s demise. The third Kang variant, who looks to be the Scarlet Centurion (Majors again), steps forward and asks what should be done next.

The three Kang variants then move toward a holographic image of the multiverse, with Immortus stating that they have to protect it from the heroes. With the Kang variant’s death, Ant-Man and the Avengers have become a threat to their plan to cleanse the MCU timeline. Immortus gestures toward a noisy stadium, stating that they have to assemble all the Kangs to ensure their plan comes to fruition. The final shot shows the camera panning inside the stadium, as endless Kang variants yell and power up. Fade to black.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania end credits scene 2: Kang performs a magic show?

Loki and Mobius look at something in Loki.

But wait…there’s more! After all the end credits roll, there’s another scene with Kang. This time, we see him on a theater stage dressed in a period costume (my guess is the 1910s, but it could be a bit earlier or later) rather than his usual purple and blue costume. He’s in disguise as some kind of magician and he is giving a speech about (what else?) time.

We then cut to a captive audience, who is eating every word up. There are only two people who don’t seem to be buying what Kang is selling. These two are revealed to be none other than Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson), both in disguises, who confirm they have found Kang. Cut to black, again. What comes next? Well, we’ll have to wait until this summer, when the second season of Loki is set to premiere on Disney+.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is now playing in theaters nationwide.

The buzz on Ant-Man and the Wasp is that Adam McKay will again help with the script

While it's unknown exactly how much input Oscar-nominated writer and director Adam McKay had on last year's Ant-Man, the involvement of the Anchorman and The Big Short filmmaker in developing the film's script was quite a big deal when it was first announced, and likely resulted in a very funny script becoming even funnier. Fans of the franchise can rest easy, as McKay confirmed this week that he'll be back for the film's sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Much like McKay's work on the first film, the exact role he'll play in the sequel remains somewhat vague, but he indicated that talks are indeed underway with Marvel Studios.
