New MCU Rumor Reveals A Surprising Link Between WANDAVISION's Darkhold And Kang The Conqueror New MCU Rumor Reveals A Surprising Link Between WANDAVISION's Darkhold And Kang The Conqueror

The Darkhold was destroyed in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but a new rumour reveals a surprising link between the book first introduced in WandaVision and Kang the Conqueror. Check it out!

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania will introduce us to Kang the Conqueror, and after meeting He Who Remains in Loki's season one finale, we're hoping to get a better idea of what to expect from the villain.

After all, while the likes of Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness have teased the Multiverse, we've yet to fully understand how the villain's many Variants will factor into it. However, a new rumour shared by The Cosmic Circus suggests Kang already, secretly, played a role in at least one big MCU development.

According to the site's source, a Kang Variant was the true author of the Darkhold. 

We're not sure what that means for the demon Chthon, but it's possible he either never existed, was manipulated by Kang, or the time-traveller was the one who transcribed his original writings from Mount Wundagor's walls.

Why? Well, there are many possibilities (including that being an early attempt to figure out how he could control the Multiverse), but the Scarlet Witch essentially being "framed" for being capable of destroying all reality has, after her battle with Doctor Strange, basically taken her off the table. 

That's one less rival for Kang, and with the Darkhold now destroyed across the Multiverse, potentially one less obstacle for him to overcome. Remember, the one being Chthon believed would one day rule all reality is not only believed dead, but the book that gave her access to those powers is no more. That should make Kang's life a lot easier, right? 

As the site points out, the drawings in the Darkhhold bear a resemblance to imagery in both Loki and the Doctor Strange sequel, with the recurring theme being rings that may also tie Kang to Kamala Khan's bangles and Shang-Chi's Ten Rings. 

We're dealing with a lot of theories here, and hope Marvel Studios will make sense of all this as we get deeper into the Multiverse Saga. If Kang is responsible for writing the Darkhold, however, an upcoming project will surely shed some light on the how and why of his manipulating history and these various artefacts to achieve his goal of conquering all. 

What do you guys think?

It could be that the Darkhold is what Kang wants Scott to steal.

@Itwasme - I think he’s sending him to retrieve modok tbh, in the trailer looks like he’s kangs prisoner more than ally

Wait, so he wrote the darkhold so partially he wouldn't have to worry about the darkhold? You'd think that stupid backwards logic would be a sign that this is a bs rumor, but not if you're Josh.

Also, funny story, I actually didn't see it was Josh who wrote it until after I wrote that comment. He's just that predictable.

This is stupid

Kang doesn’t need to be responsible for everything and I hope he isn’t

Thanos wasn’t ultron wasn’t no one needs to be

Kang writing the darkhold is stupid, also anyone paying for a discord that provides "scoops" is village idiot stupid

@bobevanz - Cosmic Circus does it too, or are you talking about DanielRPK?

Either way, people deserve the disappointment they get when it turns out the rumours are fake. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes

Why? Just why?

The Darkhold is a relic of the SUPERNATURAL side of the Marvel universe, it shouldn't be related to Kang whatsoever. If anything in the comics, Jack Russel is the one most related to the book.

@FilmGuy7878 - because they had no real plan for post Thano and are now simply connecting dots that really have no connection

Yes they're throwing darts at a wall trying to see what sticks at this point

@FilmGuy7878 - What if Chthon wrote the Darkhold to fight Kang?
FilmGuy7878
FilmGuy7878 - 1/12/2023, 4:59 PM
@Omario - Hmmm, interesting. Chthon wrote the Darkhold shortly after the Earth's formation so maybe Kang traveled back to that time to rewrite the Darkhold maybe?

@McMurdo - @ForceofWakanda - That's just simply not true. They have the framework built out thru parts of Phase 6. We already know Fantastic 4 and the X-Men are coming. They're building the story for that and beyond.

@FilmGuy7878 - Don't take a fan theory so seriously. You're acting like Marvel is actually doing this.

@Variant - I'm not saying that they are, it just would be a bad idea if they did.

Hulk butchered. Thor butchered. Wanda butchered. Hawkeye butchered (this one is on that snow cat not Feige)








So who's next?
Origame

@McMurdo - yeah it's not looking good for Renner. His family is expecting he might never walk again, and might lose his leg.

@Origame -

1/11/23 "Jeremy Renner's sister has said he is "crushing progress goals" as she gave a positive update on his recovery from a snow plough accident.

The Hawkeye star - who recently celebrated his 52nd birthday in a hospital bed - suffered severe injuries to his chest and back while clearing snow from outside his family home near Lake Tahoe, Nevada on New Year's Day.

Kym Renner told People: "We are so thrilled with his progress. If anyone knows Jeremy, he is a fighter and doesn't mess around. He is crushing all the progress goals. We couldn't feel more positive about the road ahead."
McMurdo
McMurdo - 1/12/2023, 4:14 PM
@Origame - I figured as much would be the case when I first read the report. Your leg doesn't come back from being crushed by a snow cat. The nerve damage would be way too severe.

So did Kang have facial scars in the comics or is this how they are doing his comic book "mask lines" in the movie?
bkmeijer1

@Reginator - thinks its just for the movies. Good way to differentiate him from other variants though

The Darkhold is mystical, while Kang is technological. Not sure I'm buying this.

@DrReedRichards - Darkhold is about manipulating old knowledge... Kang has been around a long long time.

Kang has nothing to do with Magic. I Don’t buy it.

@Chewtoy - But they seem to want to mix everything up together so it's all connected, don't know why... cross-pollination of audience/merchandising I suppose. So wouldn't surprise me.
Wanda (a mutant witch) and actual magic never sat comfortably together either IMO.

I know little about it, and what i remember was probably just from Spider-Man Unlimited, but has Mount Wundagor any connection to the High Evolutionary that is going to show up in GotG3? If i'm not wrong it was his headquarters in the comics.
