It is rumored that Kang will play an Inquisitor due to him revealing in a recent interview that his character will wield a lightsaber. If so it may be that he will play the Fifth Brother, a member of the Inquisitors, as he uses the same model of the lightsaber as the Grand Inquisitor.  Obi-Wan Kenobi has reportedly wrapped on set back in August and is set to premiere sometime in 2022.
