Yellowjacket wasn't really a goofball either. I don't think being a villain in an Ant-Man movie is going to change your characterization.

True, though he did seem to have a horrible death.

Wholeheartedly agree. Kang can be used to link any number of upcoming storylines and characters- Captain Marvel, Guardians, etc. It would be foolhardy to introduce him then kill him off, or play him as a goofball.

Well, The Ghost wasn't killed off and wasn't a Goofball, so there is a chance Kang will be played properly

I really hope that Antman 3 is having Kang as villian because its gonna be a Fantastic Four prequel of sorts, and it makes a lot of sense, if F4 are actually team that was stuck in time or some negative zone or quantum realm. in any way I hope it's bigger story than first 2 movies that were fun in their own right but could be so much more.

this is my issue with Kang being in an Ant-Man movie, Kang is too much of a big player to be a throw away villain, so they better not make him one because that would be a horrible mistake/waste of a really great villain, I could imagine him being more of a background threat puppeterring a smaller villain in this Ant-Man movie.. and save him to do some bigger damage in a different marvel movie, I'd be cool with him being set-up in Ant-Man 3 , but don't just kill him off

They could get infinite mileage out of Kang if they do it right. I have always loved the time travel episodes on any of the sci fi shows I used to watch. I would like to see them do some retro time travel with Kang like they did with Star Trek deep space nine and the original Star Trek episodes with the Tribbles and Klingons.

Well, since he is basically a man who can move in and out of time and reality as he pleases, I'm thinking he'll probably appear several times as any number of his personas (Rama-Tut, Iron Lad, Immortus, Scarlet Centurion, etc.) and could play bad guy in any number of movies until he has a final ultimate confrontation with the Avengers or the FF. He could reveal in the final showdown that it had been him the entire time creating all the chaos to lead up to the grand fanale.

Could be possible, I could see him at least being Victor Timely and hanging around the present day without anyone knowing

Well that's pretty cool. I'm surprised Kang is being used for a secondary character like Ant-Man, but I guess now that the original team gone, Ant-Man has moved up in stature.

Ha! I see what you did there...

The only minion (barring soldiers) that comes to mind is the Scarlet Centurion (Marcus Kang) his son, not to be confused with the Scarlet Centurion who is an alternate incarnation of Kang

I could see him being used in multiple films, but the mcu does have a tendency to go thru villains quickly, so who knows.
