Post-credit sequences are a tradition for any Marvel Studios production, as they offer a glimpse of what the future has in store. Not just that, but it also plays a big part in setting up the overarching plotline moving forward, which was especially important for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The introduction of Kang the Conqueror gave us a clear vision of where the future is heading but the first post-credit sequence made one thing clear: the danger is far greater than anyone ever imagined.
The main theme to get across is that Kang is many things, but he is not a liar. All the hints, threats and warnings he was giving Scott in the middle of the movie turned out to be very true, and Ant-Man, the Wasp and the whole family barely survived beating just one of these Kangs. So, what the hell are the Avengers going to do against a thousand Kangs? And on a villain level, we saw how bad Jonathan Majors was as one Kang, so who was bad enough to beat him? Who’s the Kublai Khan to the Genghis Khan of the Kang Dynasty? Who is the Caesar Augustus to the Julius Caesar of the Roman Empire? Who is clever and cunning and evil enough to take out the dictator of the Kang Dynasty? So it’s a bit of an exponential step up, and it’s a way to show the Avengers are in way over their head. They just don’t know it yet.Jeff Loveness
There was also the tease for the upcoming second season of Loki, which is still without a definite release date. Sadly, it seems Jeff Lovenss didn’t get a chance to write that short sequence and hopes to get a chance to write dialogue for the always-hilarious Owen Wilson.
Not direct writing. We had discussions with them, and there’s an overarching theme. But no, that team had already been working on their stuff, and it’ll certainly come into play in future movies. But I wrote the mid-credit scene, and that’s a tease of the next Kang appearance. So I haven’t written for Owen Wilson yet. Perhaps one day.Jeff Loveness
The future for Marvel is looking bright, as we’re just about to truly enter the era that many have been waiting for. The Multiverse Saga is taking shape in an unlikely way and Jonathan Majors already promises a villain we won’t easily forget anytime soon.
