Will a variant of Kang the Conqueror be the villain of Moon Knight 2?

On the Cosmic Circle podcast, Ayla Ruby shared that her co-worker Alex Perez has revealed there could be a Kang variant in the second season of Moon Knight. This has only strengthened people's belief in the theory that Kang the Conqueror could be the villain of the second season because there is also a King Rama Tut hint in the first season of the series. In addition, that variant played by Jonathan Majors also guest appeared in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Talking about the first season, the third episode has a QR code which has led fans to believe that there is a strong possibility of a Kang-centric story. As per ComicBook, scanning the code takes you to a digital copy of Moon Knight Annual Vol 2.  #1. Subtitled "Acts of Evil," where Oscar Isaac's character, Marc Spector races Kang the Conqueror for three totems of Khonshu. Combined together, all these instances provide a solid ground for the fan theory that Kang the Conqueror could play a vital role in the second season of Moon Knight.
