The MCU's next 'Big Bad' Kang the Conqueror actor Johnathan Majors talks about breaking the iconic villain to life
Johnathan Major first played the role of Kang in the Disney+ series Loki and is the next major villain after Thanos in the MCU.
Kang the Conqueror is an iconic Marvel villain, a brilliant scientist, and scholar who has 40th-century technology which gives superhuman strength and speed.
He is a master of time travel which lets him have access to technology from any century.
Jonathan Major plays the role of Kang in the MCU and made his debut in the season finally with Loki, revealing that he created the Time-keepers in order to stop an alternative version of himself from ruling the multiverse.
It was relieved that Kang would be the next main bad guy that the avengers will have to face off against after they defeated the Mad Titan Thanos at the end of the Infinity Saga.
Kang will make his next MCU appearance in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, Majors had revealed in past interviews that the version of Kang in the movie will be completely different than the version we saw in Loki.
In the comics, there are multiple versions of Kang, each more powerful and than the other, so it will be interesting to see which version or versions we end up with by the time we reach Avengers: The Kang Dynasty .
In a recent interview with ET Canada, Jonathan Majors spoke about playing the role of Kang and how it felt to play the next major villain in the MCU.
"It feels cool. You know, the whole thing is of cultural significance. And so, to be of titular significance, whatever that means, it's humbling actually. You know, you just want to get to work, you just want to see the script and start, you know? Start and fail and mess up and you know, memorize the lines and do all the stuff I wanted to do since I was a little boy in Texas."
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania will be kicking off the fifth phase of the MCU, and the movie will be directed by Peyton Reed.
The cast includes Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, and Jonathan Majors.
