No word yet on who will play the large-headed villain, who was notably voiced by Patton Oswalt in the Hulu series. The action-comedy will release on February 17, 2023.

Just saw an in-room-only trailer for Ant-Man: Quantummania. Scott has written a book about saving the world. The family gives him crap. They then all get sucked into the Quantum Realm and Kang is there. “Have I killed you before?” he asks Scott. And MODOK was in it. #SDCC

In Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will once again share top billing as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne/Wasp, respectively. They were both last seen by fans during Avengers: Endgame. The film will also feature the return of Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer as they reprise their roles as Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne. It’s still unclear if Michael Peña’s fan-favorite Luis and David Dastmalchian’s Kurt would also be back for the sequel as well.
The third installment will also introduce MCU newcomer Kathryn Newton (The Society, Freaky) as she now takes over the role of Cassie Lang, a character previously portrayed by Abby Ryder Fortson in the first Ant-Man films and Emma Fuhrmann in Endgame. Lovecraft Country star Jonathan Majors have also been cast as Marvel villain Kang the Conqueror, while Ghostbusters star Bill Murray is also expected to appear for an undisclosed role.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is once again being directed by Peyton Reed from a screenplay written by Jeff Loveness.
