Deadline is reporting that Jonathan Majors, of DA 5 BLOODS, LOVECRAFT COUNTRY, and LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO fame, will join the MCU in a major ANT-MAN 3 role!
While it hasn’t officially been announced, sources close to the movie’s production indicate that Majors will portray the MCU’s version of Kang the Conqueror, a major time-traveling villain from the Marvel comics.
Kang the Conqueror is a time traveling character who has gone up against Spider-Man and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the past. It is believed that the character will appear in more than just one movie, which could mean that Ant-Man 3 will connect to more MCU projects in the near future. Several alternate versions of Kang have been presented in the comics over the years, so there is a lot to choose from in terms of where the character can go.
Ant-Man 3 does not yet have a release date, but since Marvel currently has films slotted through summer of 2022, the winter of 2022 would be the first chance, or even early 2023 considering how release dates keep shifting these days.
