Loki Writer Reveals Key Difference Between Kang and Thanos
August 5, 2021
Loki‘s lead screenwriter, Michael Waldron, has analyzed the differences between Thanos and Kang the Conqueror. Take a look at what are the main dissimilarity between the characters – at least in his opinion.
In a guest appearance on The Playlist Podcast, Waldron revealed that the new Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) villain has a “more erratic” personality than his predecessor, which carries a much more chaotic potential.
It is believed that the even more evil variant of He Who Remains is expected to take over the post left by the Mad Titan as the next “big threat” within the so-called Phases 4 and 5 of the franchise.
“The exciting thing about getting to originate that character on the page in the MCU was sort a creating a totally different energy than what Thanos is, which is measured and principled, almost monk-like in his evil aspirations,” he explains.
On the other hand, Loki‘s screenwriter goes on to say that,
“…obviously, He Who Remains is a much more squirrelly, chaotic, narcissistic presence, and so that was a lot of fun.”
As it turns out, Kang seems to be a real villain, a real bad guy – unlike Thanos, who turned out to be an empathetic villain who, despite having done the wrong thing, still tried to justify it in a way that many people even agree with.
