EXCLU: After a big summer with DA 5 BLOODS and LOVECRAFT COUNTRY, Jonathan Majors is joining the MCU landing a major role in next ANT-MAN movie. Sources close to project believe he will play super villain Kang the Conquer https://t.co/X9ITEcLW1r— Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) September 14, 2020
Jonathan Majors has been cast in the third Ant-Man film in a major lead role.
Marvel won't comment, but sources close to the film say Majors will portray time-travelling villain Kang the Conqueror.
The film could easily set up the character as the next major villain of the franchise and could help introduce the Fantastic Four to the MCU, as Kang is a 31st Century descendant of the FF's Reed Richards. The character could even set up introducing mutants, as Kang time travelled back to ancient Egypt and became the Pharaoh Rama-Tut, who planned to claim Apocalypse as his heir.
