Ant-Man 3 Trailer Finally Gives Fans First Look at MODOK

After much anticipation, fans have finally gotten their first look at a live-action MODOK. Thanks to the latest trailer of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, the fan-favorite villain was seen in his full-headed glory and, believe it or not, he's played exactly by the actor rumored. That's right, Corey Stoll is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after seemingly dying during the closing moments of the first Ant-Man.

Though this is the character's first "real" look, the overall MCU MODOK design was previously revealed through the announcement of Quantumania Funko POP! toys. Regardless, see MODOK in a trailer snapshot below.


Who Is M.O.D.O.K.?

In the comics, M.O.D.O.K. was A.I.M. agent and technician George Tarleton, who was transformed into the living computer originally known as M.O.D.O.C. (Mental Organism Designed Only for Computing) by the scientists of Advanced Idea Mechanics. From his hovering Doomsday Chair, the intellectually-superior mutate with an enlarged head has been opposed by Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, and the Avengers, who have thwarted M.O.D.O.K.'s repeat attempts at world domination.

He's sometimes worked alongside other evil geniuses — including the Leader, Doctor Doom, and the Mad Thinker — as part of the big-brained bad guy super-group known as the Intelligencia.
