After a star-making turn in HBO’s hit series Lovecraft Country, Jonathan Majors is now ready to make his mark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a big way. Majors has been tapped for one of the lead roles in the next Ant-Man movie opposite Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily. The studio had no comment, but sources close to the project say he is likely to play the super-villain Kang the Conquer.

 

Sources add that like with so many new characters in the MCU, there could be a twist with how the character is featured in future films, but as of now he is likely to be one of the main villains in the next installment in the franchise.

 

Whoa!

Is this good? I've never heard of Kang.

 

I haven't heard of the Young Avengers either, but I would be shocked if they drop the Fantastic Four into Ant-Man 3. I feel like FF are a big enough deal that they'd introduce them in their own movie.

I think it would be weird to just drop them in without introduction, this allows them to skip or massively shorten the FF origin story. Plus Kang premiered in FF and is a direct decedent of Reed Richards

I wish I didn't know this was happening, thanks title with spoiler. :(

 

There's no way you would have successfully avoided news like this all the way until seeing the movie.

Also the rumours for Ant-Man 3 have been that it would either introduce the FF or the Young Avengers.

 

Personally I'm rooting for Alpha Flight!

I wouldn't mind seeing Alpha Flight though I could see them more in a new MCU wolverine flick

I get all moist thinking about this, they bring FF and then we get Namor . Get Ma Dong Seok to cut weight to play him and I am in heaven.

 

 

*shrugs* Here I wanted to see him play Ryu in a Street Fighter film done right!

Given Ant Man's tone, I fully expect this Kang to be a joke villain. Probably not even a time traveler to be honest. Kang has one of the most convoluted origins in the Marvel U :lol:

 

Iron Man 3's Mandarin all over again?

Or maybe Ant Man 3 will play it completely straight 🤔

Jonathan Majors was also in The Last Black Man in San Francisco. I don't remember seeing anybody mention this movie before on here. That's a shame because it's a very good movie!

It’s really good

Kang is the good stuff. One of my faves. 

 

As far as Ant-Man's tone goes, both of his other villains were serious even though the rest of the film is light and jokey. Scott having to deal with his first real Marvel villain sounds awesome.
