Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s ending felt less like a definitive full stop in the MCU and more like a jumping-off point to years of stories, spin-offs, and potentially universe-destroying consequences.
Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and the Ant-Family’s inadvertent trip to the Quantum Realm saw the Avenger clash with Kang (Jonathan Majors) and MODOK (Corey Stoll), as well as cross paths with several bizarre new characters. It all culminated in a trippy, mind-bending battle between the Conqueror and the conquered that left us with several burning questions as we departed the theater.
From the fates of certain characters to multiversal shenanigans, and even a look ahead to what’s in store next, here’s our complete breakdown of the Ant-Man 3 ending, with answers to every question you may have had about the Marvel movie’s exciting final act. Spoilers for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania below!
Kang, with the multiverse core engine for his ship now recovered, seeks to “conquer eternity” and strike back at the Kangs who exiled him across timelines and universes and “played with time like children.”
By Quantumania’s end, Ant-Man and the Wasp stopped Kang from heading into the Earth-616 universe. Instead, Wasp shoots him and pushes him into his multiversal ship’s core, which explodes and drags him in.
But is Kang dead? The golden rule is: if you don’t see a body, they’re not dead. So there’s still a possibility the Conqueror is still alive and can find a way out of the Quantum Realm.
However, the Council of Kangs certainly think he’s dead and, because of that, are now moving forward with plans to stop the MCU’s heroes before they meddle with the multiverse any further.
If we had to guess, this Kang is probably dead, but there’s definitely some wiggle room if Marvel wants to write itself out of a corner in future. If the Conqueror returns, it’ll likely be in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, set for May 2, 2025.
