Does Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania Have A Post-Credits Scene?

Contains spoilers for "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania"

"Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" takes the ant-family to a supposedly familiar place that hides some truly terrifying secrets. Scott Lang's (Paul Rudd) crafty daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton) and mentor-slash-begrudging father-in-law candidate Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) have been conducting tests on the Quantum Realm, only for things to go horribly awry. As Scott, Cassie, Hank, Hope (Evangeline Lilly) and Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer) get sucked in an increasingly mysterious series of mini-worlds, it turns out that they're facing a terrifying and complex adversary: Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), who's been living up to his moniker in the deepest corners of the Quantum Realm ... and who has a bone to pick with former fellow castaway Janet.

"Quantumania" is a colorful, high-octane science fiction story that functions as an important showcase for impeding Marvel Cinematic Universe big bad Kang. But does it follow the long-serving MCU tradition of post-credits scenes? Why, yes, it does.

The two Quantumania post-credits scenes are all about Kang

Kang remains front and center in the film's two post-credits scenes. In fact, even if you've been yearning to see more of the character than the versions "Loki" Season 1 and the main story of "Quantumania" introduced us to, the mid-credits scene might just be more than you bargained for. 

We start with three very different-looking Kangs discussing the defeat of the exiled Quantum Realm variant and why the fact that "they" managed to dispose of him is unnerving. Then, they move to a coliseum-style meeting between thousands and thousands of Kangs – and boy, it looks like there are some outright creepy variants out there. As the Kangs teleport to the meeting spot, an unnerving number of them display bloodthirsty and even animalistic traits, hooting and hollering like they were about to go to war — which, since they're meeting to address an unnamed threat that's very clearly hinted to be some variation of the Avengers, they may very well be doing. Who knows? This may turn out to be Kang's version of Thanos' (Josh Brolin) "Fine, I'll do it myself" moment ... only infinitely more threatening, considering that we just saw what just a single Kang variant can do.  

The movie's main Kang is already a complex character who balances deftly between deep regret, unbridled fury, and a morsel of kindness that only makes his worse traits more terrible to behold. Compare him with "Loki's" resigned and clownish He Who Remains and this congregation of Kangs, and the viewer can only speculate on what Jonathan Majors masterclass awaits when Kang next returns.

The second post-credits scene introduces us to a very special Kang

if you thought Majors was good at switching up his Kang performances before, the second post-credits scene somehow manages to take things to a completely different level. The scene presumably serves as a teaser for "Loki" Season 2, as we meet the titular trickster god variant (Tom Hiddleston) and Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) as they observe a bumbling, geeky Kang variant in what appears to be a turn-of-the-20th century setting, giving a science show demonstration of a time-themed invention. 

As Loki attempts to convince the suspicious Mobius that the man they're watching is extremely dangerous, the more comics-savvy viewers may be busy with the chilly feeling running down their spines. This variant, you see, is named Victor Timely , and he's a very special character. In the comics, the "Timely" Kang is actually the original version of the character, called Kang Prime. He's the guy who started the whole variant thing by travelling back in time to be a pharaoh for a while, and soon became in conflict with the Avengers, Doctor Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the MCU), Khonshu (voiced by F. Murray Abraham), and a number of characters who still await for their MCU debut. 

Victor Timely is one of Kang Prime's major bids to power — a seemingly benevolent inventor and industrialist who presides over an entire time-themed city, posing as a rotating generational cast of fathers and sons while making all sorts of moves behind the scenes. Interestingly, this Kang is also connected to major "Loki" character Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), so if even a fragment of Timely's comics story makes it in the show, "Loki" Season 2 will be a pretty interesting watch.
