Paul Rudd discusses whether the infamous “Thanus” theory could possibly be used to defeat Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Paul Rudd has debunked fans who may want to theorize whether the infamous “Thanus” theory can be used to beat Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Before Avengers: Endgame was released in 2019, fans have spent a lot of time speculating on how the Avengers could potentially defeat Thanos after the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War. One of the more bizarre but amusing theories held that Rudd’s Ant-Man could shrink, sneak Thanos in through his behind, and kill the Mad Titan by enlarging himself from within.
The idea, also known as the “Thanus” theory, quickly spread across the internet, leading to a wild assortment of memes and other plain jokes. The theory became so popular that Rudd went straight to work with it himself as Scott Lang for an interactive video shown as part of the Disney Wish cruise ship. that of Amazon the boys would also parody the concept in a really graphic way during their season 3 premiere.
Now Rudd is going back to the theory again, this time in the context of Marvel’s next big bad, Kang the Conqueror. Speak with ET after the release of the Ant Man 3 trailer, Rudd admits that some fans are considering the Thanus theory”a missed opportunityand jokingly suggests that those who would like to see the movement put into action”just have to see the next one.“He’s also not sure if Kang can be beaten in such a way, saying”I have to assume all parts of him are hard.Watch his full comments below:
I know what you’re talking about, a way to kill Thanos. And that some consider it a missed opportunity. Well, I think you should just see the following. I don’t know if you take out Kang that way too, Kang is pretty tough, and I have to assume all parts of him are tough.
How will Ant-Man fare against Kang?
Marvel fans first met Majors as the Kang variant He Who Remains in the Loki season 1 finale. While that variant was a much more peaceful version of the character, the Kang audience will meet in Quantumania is probably a far more formidable enemy than the former creator of the TVA. A master of time travel who has access to all parts of the time stream, and one who possesses almost unprecedented levels of intelligence, Quantumania‘s Kang would have to prove himself more than a match for Rudd’s incredible shrinking superhero.
Although it is not clear whether the Kang variant used in Quantumania will be the same one to eventually appear in Avengers: The Kang Dynastythe events of the following ant man The film will almost certainly establish its character as an Avengers-level threat beyond Thanos’ own. Without the advantage of his fellow Avengers alongside him, Scott Lang’s Ant-Man will surely have a hard time finding a way to survive his encounter with the MCU’s next overarching villain, even with the highly unlikely Thanus- maneuver at his disposal. the commitment of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will definitely test Scott Lang in ways he has never been tested before.
