Some fan-art supposedly based on official promo art from San Diego Comic-Con may give us some idea of how the villainous MODOK will look in Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man: and The Wasp: Quantumania.
As we know, MODOK is set to be introduced in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniaand some new fan-art might just give us an idea of how the villain will look when he makes his MCU debut in the threequel.
This artwork seems to have fooled quite a few people into believing it was the real deal, but it is pretty close to some of the descriptions that were shared online following Marvel Studios’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The “Mental Organism Designed Only For Killing” appeared briefly in the trailer, and the panel also included shots of some official concept designs.
It’s certainly an… interesting take on the character, but then, he’s always been one of the most bizarre-looking Marvel Comics baddies, so his live-action debut should reflect that.
Again, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is just one artist’s interpretation based on what was shown at SDCC, and MODOK may end up looking very different in the actual movie.
We’re still not certain how MODOK will factor into the plot, but the rumor mill points to none other than Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) taking on the mantle after being banished to the Quantum Realm towards the end of the first Ant-Man.
While the notion of Cross being somehow transformed into the megalomaniacal villain might seem far-fetched, it would explain why we haven’t seen the character in so many years, and Stoll has been confirmed to reprise the role of the former Yellowjacket.
Peyton Reed is back behind the camera for Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne’s (Evangeline Lilly) next adventure, which will feature the return of Jonathan Majors as the villainous Kang the Conqueror and the debut of Kathryn Newton as Cassie Lang.
Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer are seen to return as Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne. “Wombats” Luis (Michael Peña) and Kurt (David Dastmalchian) will also be back as Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) sidekicks, but TI (Dave) is believed to have been dropped from the movie amid multiple allegations of sexual assault against him and his wife.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is set to hit theaters on February 17, 2023.
