We have some great MCU news. If you have been watching the incredible new show on HBO: Lovecraft Country, then you are probably a big fan of Jonathan Majors. I think he makes the show and is a great actor.
So it comes as great news to here the breaking reports from Comicbook.com:
It looks like the Marvel Cinematic Universe has found its next major villain in the form of one of Hollywood’s fastest rising stars. Jonathan Majors , star of HBO’s Lovecraft Country and Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods , is reportedly joining the upcoming Ant-Man 3 . Majors will join the cast that already includes Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly and will be playing one of the lead roles in the film. While his specific role hasn’t been confirmed, Deadline is reporting that Majors will be playing the popular Marvel villain Kang the Conqueror.
If Majors is indeed playing Kang, which seems safe to assume given the initial report from Deadline, this could be a huge development for the future of the MCU franchise. Kang is an incredibly important villain in the comics, and with Thanos making his exit at the end of Avengers: Endgame, this could be the new antagonist for Marvel going forward.
