Jonathan Majors Talks Transitioning From He Who Remains to Kang the Conqueror

Actor Jonathan Majors talks playing Kang the Conqueror and bringing the character to life in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Actor Jonathan Majors is set to play the villainous Kang the Conqueror in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Majors is in an interesting position after having indirectly introduced his character in the season finale of the Loki series. Having portrayed a variant of Kang known as He Who Remains, a burning question is how the two characters will be different from one another. Asked by Variety how he will handle the transition between his portrayals of the two characters, Majors said:

Well it’s a different script, so there’s that…different writers and I’m shooting in a different country, so there’s that. And you know, He Who Remains is in the world now, so there’s so much we know about him…there’s [] 40 minutes of that guy and that narrative, and so it really set me up to tell a story and get another canvas with more players this time. It’s not the incredible Tom Hiddleston…I’m dealing with Paul Rudd and Evangeline and the likes of the Ant-Man family.

Ant-Man himself Paul Rudd has praised Majors’ work and performance for the upcoming film. It looks like Majors has some praise for Rudd as well, as Majors also stated:

Paul’s a veteran. And you know, we don’t have the Avengers without Ant-Man. He’s our leader on set…He’s been instrumental in allowing me to kind of land, you know, in the world. It’s his set, it’s his franchise, and he’s been beautiful.

Just going off of the words of the two actors, it looks like Ant-Man and Kang the Conqueror are set to be quite formidable characters and instrumental to the growing Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as its new multiverse. The upcoming third installment of the Ant-Man franchise is currently in production in London and is on track to hit theaters on Feb. 17, 2023.
