Jonathan Majors: “Nothing is more diverse” than playing Kang in the MCU

“Nothing is a monolith — not blackness, not maleness, not comic book villains,” said the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star.

Jonathan Majors wants to acknowledge how remarkable his casting as Kang really is.

The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star is gearing up to take his villain character, Kang the Conqueror, to deep places in the upcoming MCU installment, which kicks off the franchise’s latest phase. After appearing as a version of the alternate reality character in the Disney+ series Loki, Majors is now the “big villain” of the third Ant-Man film alongside Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer .

“Nothing is more diverse than the fact that the MCU’s ‘Big Bad’ is a little black boy from Texas. This is crazy!” Majors told Ebony magazine. “And there is no help. There are no allies. It is [just] big bad, and he’s a member of the African diaspora. [You see that in his] Lips, nose, cheekbones, everything. That’s him; It’s us.”

The Creed III star added, “Nothing is a monolith — no blackness, no masculinity, no comic book villains.”

While Majors noted that the Quantumania theme is largely about how time affects relationships, he reflected in a on the lack of backlash to his casting so far significant Role.

“Well, it’s not too late,” Majors said. “Yeah, I thought it was coming, but we’ll see. people are crazy Why don’t I think it happened? I don’t know. i feel blessed I thought of my sister Moses Ingram [from ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’]who was also attacked. Maybe the ‘Star Wars’ camp is different. I don’t know. I don’t know if we got a lot of that in the Marvel world.”

Majors previously told IndieWire that as an MFA student at the Yale School of Drama, he fully realized that the “game was rigged” when it came to racing in America.

“As much as I want to go to Yale, nothing at Yale would guarantee access to any part of the industry or any part of me,” said the Magazine Dreams actor. “I think art, especially cinema, is a kind of democracy. Because they can do whatever building they want to do it in, but if we put it in a movie theater, they’re going to have problems.”
