We know that Kang the Conqueror will be the main villain of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but word also has it that the movie will feature Marvel’s wackiest villain—MODOK (Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing).
What’s news is, the design for MODOK in the movie has apparently leaked online, and well… it’s something:

A lot of fans have already started voicing their distaste for the design, but I’m willing to give Marvel the benefit of the doubt. I think MODOK is going to appear like a robot for a good chunk of the movie, then the mask will come off and reveal his giant face which will be Darren Cross from the first Ant-Man—giving us the more comic-accurate look.
If you ask me, I always prefer the MODOK look with the arms sticking out the side of his head, but there’s always a chance for characters to evolve, especially with the MCU that requires a new costume with every film.
Then again, it’s possible this isn’t a design from the movie at all, and people are just getting outraged over nothing.
With a release set for early next year, we should get our first look at Ant-Man 3 soon. My guess is we could get something around the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in November, but maybe Marvel could go even earlier than that.
