Thanos’ era as the main antagonist of the MCU ended a few years ago in Avengers: Endgame. But although this great threat to the multiverse has been extinguishedIt does not mean that there are no dangers, because Marvel has finally presented the great “replacement”, to call it somehow, the Mad Titan in the new Phases of this cinematographic universe.
The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania feature film has served to introduce Kang the Conqueror, who will be the new threat that The Avengers and other heroes must defeat. And, despite the fact that this film has had its positive and negative reviews, the potential of this new character is undeniable.
Now that Marvel has established who will be the new big villain of the MCU, one might think that the age of Thanos is over forever, but this might not be the case. And it is that the return of the Crazy Titan makes all the sense, since it would be used for a greater purpose that would bring benefits to Kang, the Conqueror. Next, we will tell you all the details about it. But you should know that this post contains some spoilers for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Kang the Conqueror is Marvel’s new big villain
If you are a fan of the MCU, you will know that Thanos is a character that has been built through various feature films, in which their motivations have been discoveredhis way of thinking, among other details that led the Mad Titan to vanish half of the inhabitants of the universe, all for a messianic desire.
However, Thanos was not only a villain who thought like one, but he also had the physical qualities of a true warrior and this was demonstrated in The Avengers: Endgame when he faced Thor, Iron-Man and Captain America at the same time. In addition, in this battle it was possible to see that the Crazy Titan already knew Tony Stark, despite not being the same one who fought against him before.
Definitely, this great battle between The Avengers and Thanos’ army was spectacular and It served to close the Infinity Saga and also the Crazy Titan. After this, Marvel has presented the one who will be the architect of all the misfortunes and problems that the heroes will suffer in the face of the new Phases.
Kang the Conqueror is the new antagonist of the MCU. However, this one has received some negative reviews from fans who have compared it to Thanos. But this is somewhat unfair, since the Mad Titan was built over many years, while Kang has only had his first appearances on screen.
Nevertheless, the fact that Thanos returned could be very beneficial for Kangthe Conqueror for various reasons, especially because it would serve so that the latter could demonstrate all his power.
Thanos could serve as the show of power that Kang needs in the MCU
Unfortunately for the heroes of the Marvel multiverse, the great power of all variants of Kang has been unleashed, this following the events of the Loki series. And one of the strongest has already been presented, as is Kang, the Conqueror.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania ended with Kang’s defeat at the hands of Scott Lang, which has been somewhat controversial, due to the great strength of this variant of the villain. However, this does not mean that this enemy will not appear again, because, as could be seen in the post-credits scene, Kang’s Council has been shown and the vast majority of these variants are for the purpose of destroying the Avengers.
But, although Kang has great potential, this could not be appreciated in the feature film, which has caused a disappointment in some fans. And it is here where the appearance of Thanos would be necessary, because this way the first could demonstrate his power.
In the comics already a confrontation between Thanos and Kang has taken placebecause on one occasion, The Avengers brought a young version of the latter to the present to defeat the Mad Titan, who had merged with celestial technology.
During this great battle it was possible to appreciate that, although Thanos is very powerfulthis is no match for Kang, the Conqueror, who managed to defeat the Mad Titan quickly, making him age in a matter of seconds.
If the MCU bring Thanos back to face Kangthe Conqueror, the latter could dispel all the doubts of the fans by showing that he is much more powerful than the Mad Titan, which, at the time, gave The Avengers a lot of headaches by being a difficult adversary.
How could Thanos return to the MCU naturally?
The presentation of the multiverse and the character variants that the MCU has made could be the key for Thanos to return to planet Earth and face not only The Avengers, but Kang himself, the Conqueror.
While it is true that, as we mentioned at the beginning, Thanos’ defeats in The Avengers: Endgame were spectacular and they gave me that feeling of satisfaction after all the havoc the Mad Titan caused; but this does not mean that it is the final end for this villain in the MCU.
If Marvel proposed it, there could be a variant of Thanos, but from another universe, which He will travel to this time line and reality to face his enemies again. And, if this were to take place, we would definitely be looking at one of the most epic returns of a character in the cinema, which would also star in an epic battle.
For many fans, Kang desperately needs a demonstration of his true power., especially after being easily defeated by Ant-Man who, without intending to belittle the character, is not one of the most powerful of the Avengers roster. This has disappointed many people, who consider that he should show what he is capable of.
In the comics, Thanos is a villain who after being defeated by The Avengers, he leaves to later return with another plan and fight a new battle. So it’s perfectly plausible that he could show up again in the MCU, at least in the form of a variant character, only to go up against Kang the Conqueror.
