New Ant-Man 3 Teaser Reveals More of Kang’s Superpowers

A new trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania has landed, and it featured a fresh look at Jonathan Majors' Kang the Conqueror and the villain's powers.

Despite what it looks like, Kang doesn’t actually have superpowers—at least, not when referencing the comic book source material.

Instead, the villain is a brilliant genius from the future whose intelligence, a trait that Majors himself has teased, opens the door to awe-inspiring technology. This includes gizmos that might be considered magic to anyone witnessing them in the past.

A good example of this is those beams of energy that Kang blasted from his hand in the latest full-length trailer.

Now, another new teaser revealed more of the villain's formidable tech.

Kang's Powers on Full Display

Marvel Studios released a new teaser for Ant-Man and The Wasp Quantumania, and it includes a notable new look at how the movie's villain, Kang the Conqueror, utilizes his power set.

The angry Kang can be seen throwing Scott Lang up against a wall with what seems like telekinesis.

However, looking closely, fans can see his glove light up, showing the villain's advanced tech—so advanced that it can be mistaken for superpowers or magic.

Kang's tech has more new appearances throughout as well, including a moment that sees the villain send out a massive pulse of blue energy.

While it's unclear whether the character projecting the forcefield is Kang or not, the below photo seems to show one of the villain's pieces of advanced technology charging up.

The titular heroes get a brief moment of respite—though, is this glimpse of footage before or after getting sucked into the Quantum Realm?

In the teaser, Ant-Man can be heard confirming to Wasp that Cassie is being held hostage by Kang.

While advanced tech is usually the key to Kang’s power set, there is always the chance that Marvel Studios will add some unique quirks into its adaptation of the character. However, if the MCU does decide to add superpowers to Kang, it might draw some ire from fans.

Kang’s tech is so advanced that it should quickly put Tony Stark’s to shame—even Wakanda’s as well.

There is, however, one piece of Kang’s arsenal that fans still haven’t seen: his big guns. Perhaps those might have to wait until Avengers: The Kang Dynasty before they come out to play.

Quantumania will be the first time audiences truly see the threat that Kang is. Loki’s He Who Remains was great and all, but fans are clearly excited to see a Variant who’ll be closer to the one who will threaten all of the MCU.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania hits theaters on Friday, February 17.
