According to Deadline, Jonathan Majors (HBO’s Lovecraft Country, The Last Black Man in San Fransisco, White Boy Rick, When We Rise among many other things) is reportedly joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2022’s yet-to-be announced Ant-Man film alongside Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily, yet again directed by Peyton Reed.
In the report from Deadline, the sources stating that Majors is joining the unannounced Ant-Man sequel as Kang the Conqueror. Avoiding comic spoilers, let’s just say if this casting report ends up being true, it won’t just affect this film, but the entire MCU going forward.
Also joining the film is Jeff Loveness (Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s 2011-2016 seasons, the 2017 Oscars, and the 68th Primetime Emmys among many other projects) writing the script.
Recently, Jonathan Majors has been busy with HBO’s Lovecraft Country, Netflix’s Da 5 Bloods directed by Spike Lee, Focus Feature’s Captive State directed by Rupert Wyatt, A24’s The Last Black Man in San Francisco directed by Joe Talbot. Honestly, I could go on and on. Even in sub-par movies, Majors is always one of the best parts of the film or television series.
Right now you can watch him on HBO every Sunday in the hit series Lovecraft Country.
