Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has introduced MODOK to the MCU, and it's left fans comparing the character's appearance in the upcoming film to Square Enix's Avengers game.

Back when the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer dropped in January, fans got their first look at Marvel Phase 5. In the trailer, we got to see Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly return as Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne respectively, as well as Jonathan Majors as new supervillain Kang the Conqueror.

One of the biggest takeaways from this new trailer though was the introduction of fellow supervillain and MODOK, which had fans divided. Although he only appears in the trailer very briefly - once with his mask on and another time unmasked - this has been enough of a preview for fans to decide that they don't really like the floating head's design. So much so that Marvel's Avengers players have started to compliment how the character looks in the game. 

A lot of the conversation has taken place on Twitter, with several fans lamenting MODOK's cleaner look. "I was hoping for a more Avengers Game-inspired Modok," one user shared. In the game, the former scientist has a bulbous head that is covered in scars and other blemishes. From the brief look we got of him in the trailer, it looks like the movie version of the supervillain isn't nearly as spooky. "You know it’s bad when the avengers game has a better design," another fan also shared.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is out now in cinemas, and MODOK doesn't appear to have gone down very well in the rest of the film either. Unfortunately, however, the cinematic depiction is likely to endure far longer than the game's, as shortly after that aforementioned trailer dropped, it was confirmed that development on Marvel's Avengers was set to come to an end.
