Marvel Studios’ Phase 5 slate commences in 2 months, and we can’t wait to see what has been cooking in the writer’s room. At the MCU home of Disney+, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will likely release in January, after which we have the second season of What If..?. Secret Invasion, Loki Season 2, Ironheart, and more will release in 2023.
Kicking off Phase 5, we have Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, set to release in 3 months. The first trailer for the movie was shown during Marvel Studios’ San Diego Comic-Con presentation at Hall H.
This trailer gave us our first look at Kathryn Newton’s Cassie Lang and Johnathan Majors as Kang the Conquerer, and you guessed it, M.O.D.O.K.
This fan-favorite character blew our brains, and that was only with a snippet. Fans also saw a piece of merch highlighting M.O.D.O.K. on it, which received mixed reactions from the fanbase. Some considered it to be “over-designed”, while others claimed it was “fake” (which CoveredGeekly debunked).
Keep in mind that the merch was very low-res and inspired by fan art. But finally, we now have our first look at the mad scientist in Quantumania, by a Funko Pop! Leaks. At this point, Funko leaks have become a timeless classic for us!
New Funko Pops For ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’
A new image of some Funko Pops featuring Quantumania characters, including Ant-Man, the Wasp, Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conquerer, and you-know-who, M.O.D.O.K.
He seems to have a rounded head, and unlike the comics, he will wear a ‘helmet’ or ‘mask’ of sorts. We can confirm that the leak is indeed true, and this will be how M.O.D.O.K will look in the movie.
