Jonathan Majors Is Headed To The MCU In A Lead Role

In a major announcement, Jonathan Majors (LOVECRAFT COUNTRY, THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO, DA 5 BLOODS) is now headed into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and in a major way, no pun intended. Majors has joined the sequel to ANT-MAN AND THE WASP in a lead role and according to sources at DEADLINE, it as the super-villain, KANG THE CONQUEROR.

The sources close to the trad also mentioned that there could be a twist with how the character of Kang 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. In the comics Kang is a time-traveling entity who had battles with everyone from Thor to Spider-Man to the entire Avengers team.

Peyton Reed who has directed the first two ANT-MAN films is returning to helm the third one which stars Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. 

Another interesting fact about the character is that he is a possible descendant of the FANTASTIC FOUR’s Reed Richards from the future more so the 31st century. So this may have a tie-in to the future FF film in the MCU but we have to see.
