After leaving his first general meeting with the studio, Jonathan Majors, the star of “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” said that his Marvel career might have ended before it ever started. Majors acknowledged in a Vanity Fair interview that he had a certain upbringing and didn’t want to waste anyone’s time. He claimed that when he entered the meeting, everyone was preoccupied. After some while, he decided to depart and said, “It’s cool. I’ll just go.”
Majors failed to exit the building, though. He was informed that casting director Sarah Finn would be there when he arrived at the door, and they had a wonderful interaction. Majors accepted their offer to play Kang three years later. The president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, was interested in meeting Jonathan Majors because of his performance in the film “The Last Black Man in San Francisco.”
Kang’s portrayal by Jonathan Majors in “Quantumania” has gotten favourable reviews. Majors left a lasting impact on Feige, according to Entertainment Weekly, during the early “Quantumania” test screenings. He was well-liked by viewers of the film during test screenings, even more so than previous villains.

Kang’s first appearance in Loki
In “Loki” on Disney+, Kang made his Marvel debut as a different version of the character. But, the Kang you saw in “Loki” and “Quantumania” are not identical. Feige admitted that making many movies centred around a single character before the audience has even had a chance to get to know him is always one of the fun bets that Marvel makes. Marvel fully commits to these concepts and casting. The “Loki” season finale came as a huge comfort because Kang’s supporters appear to be strong. Despite not having yet seen Kang in the film, many are already enthusiastic about him.
The movie will be released on February 17. Majors’ compelling performance will increase the anticipation among Marvel Cinematic Universe fans for Kang the Conqueror’s debut appearance in the movie. It’s evident that Majors, despite a difficult beginning with Marvel, has established himself as a talented and compelling actor who is poised to play a new Thanos-sized antagonist in the MCU.
