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.

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.

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.

Is Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania the worst MCU movie ever?
Paul Rudd and Jonathan Majors stare at each other in a scene from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Even though it was backed by an aggressive marketing campaign and the allure of watching the big-screen introduction of Kang, there was no escaping a cold, hard reality: Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania stinks! That's according to both the critics, who collectively gave it a rotten score on Rotten Tomatoes, and fans, who slapped the 31st MCU movie with a lowly B grade via Cinemascore (Marvel movies usually get grades in the "A" range, so a B for them is very bad).

But just how awful is the third Ant-Man movie? There aren't a lot of genuinely bad Marvel movies, but after 15 years, it's impossible for any studio to not lay a stinker now and then. Using Rotten Tomatoes as my guide, I rank the worst MCU movies to determine where Quantumania ultimately ended up and answer the question a lot of moviegoers have been asking since the movie premiered: is it the worst MCU movie ever?

Star-Lord leads the Guardians of the Galaxy as they walk out of a spaceship in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Ever since the first comic book movie was released, people have been complaining of comic book movie fatigue. There are too many of them in the marketplace, they argue, and no one cares anymore. Yet, 2022 saw five of the top 10 highest-grossing movies being based on comic books, suggesting the genre still has plenty of life left in it.

This year is no different, as there are over a dozen comic book movies and shows set to hit screens big and small. These five films stand out from the crowd for both their potential to be great (The Flash) and their promise to honor what has come before them (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3).

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer introduces Kang
Jonathan Majors as Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Ever since he moved out of HBO's Lovecraft Country, Jonathan Majors has been having a moment. He's clearly one of the emerging stars in Hollywood with starring turns in the upcoming Devotion and Creed III. And Majors has already made his Marvel Studios debut as He Who Remains, a variant of Kang the Conqueror who appeared in the first-season finale of Loki. Next year, Kang gets his close-up in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as a warm-up to his showdown with the Avengers in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Consequently, Majors has a very memorable appearance in the first trailer for Quantumania. He may even be Scott Lang's only hope of getting home.
