As one fan put it, moviegoers are surprisingly rooting for the new baddie to "whoop Ant-Man's a**!"

In the two-minute preview, Kang is heard giving Scott an option to either help him or suffer severe consequences.

Shortly afterwards, the trailer flashes with brief scenes of Ant-Man being beaten to a bloody pulp by Kang. In other words, things are not looking too good for Scott.

While some fans are concerned for the Avenger's fate, others are stoked for the bloody showdown and the unleashing of Kang in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

As Luke Taylor once said, "a story is only as good as its villain."

While superhero flicks may not be highly regarded by every movie lover, no one can deny the adrenaline-pumping effect a good villain has on a film.

Now, Marvel has had some satisfying evildoers who have definitely given Earth's mightiest heroes a run for their money. Yet Kang's highly-anticipated debut has reignited the hype for the MCU's future phases as well as the return of good ol' fashioned, hand-to-hand combat - even if it appears the hero may not survive.
