^ Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Fever's ending has major implications for Ant-Clan, Kang the Conqueror, and the MCU Multiverse. Jonathan Majors cemented the concept of the MCU Multiverse as He Who Remains in Loki, and now he's giving it a new twist as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Although the third Ant-Man takes place primarily in the Quantum Realm, its events could have implications for the entire MCU when Avengers: Reign of Kang and Avengers: Secret Wars bring back the Major's evil mutant chain reaction.
"Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Fever" reveals that Kang built an empire in the MCU Quantum Realm after destroying countless timelines and killing countless Avenger variants. Against all odds, Ant-Man and his allies manage to stop Kang the Conqueror before he has a chance to escape back to the MCU's 616 universe. Kang's loss, though, might just be the calm before the storm, something Scott Lang already suspects. Here's how Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Fever ended and how it sets up the future of the MCU.
Kang the Conqueror is an almost invincible villain. His power is enough to destroy the entire timeline And defeat the Avengers of the parallel universe alone. However, Kang sabotaged his own efforts by underestimating his opponent. After defeating Ant-Man and his family, Kang left most of them to fend for themselves while capturing Janet Van Dyne.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: The events of Quantumania occur because of Cassie Lang's Quantum Realm device, which she describes as The quantum equivalent of the Hubble telescope.

However, her first signal was received by Kang the Conqueror, who used it to suck the Ant family into the Quantum Realm.
What Cassie Lang's Quantum Realm Device Means For MCU Multiverse
With the technology left behind by Kang the Conqueror, it is possible to reverse engineer a safe way to travel between realms and avoid being trapped in the Quantum Realm indefinitely. However, if Ant-Man and the Avengers hope to traverse the MCU multiverse without having to sleepwalk, they'll need Kang's knowledge of alternate dimensions to turn Cassie's device into a multiverse portal machine. Currently, Cassie's device only seems to allow access to the Quantum Realm, which could come in handy if the Avengers need to escape their home universe. But it could also be the first step in creating technology to help the Avengers travel between universes.

With MODOK no longer working for Kang, he can try to wipe out the Quantum Realm freedom fighters, or win them over for his own gain. Although Murdoch appears to be dead, there's still a chance he could return.

On the other hand, a traitor like Bill Murray's Krylar could be prosecuted for treachery, and Krylar himself is expected to be humiliated and humiliated by his ill-advised decision somewhere within an expanded octopus digestive system or somewhere in the Quantum Realm. regret.
