Jonathan Majors left his first meeting with Marvel Studios – GeekTyrant

Jonathan Majors is the new major villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he will star as Kang the Conqueror Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. But that’s just the beginning for him, as his reign of terror will extend into 2025 Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. So, fans better get ready because it’s going to be pretty wild!

It turns out Majors almost missed this epic opportunity! In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the actor revealed that he’d left his first shareholder meeting with the studio. Right, he just got up and left because he didn’t want to waste anyone’s time. He explained:

“I hope this doesn’t bite my ass, but I got out of my Marvel General [meeting]. That was a long time ago. I just got out of drama school and I’m running around town sitting in the office. I grew up in a very special way and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time. So I walked in there and they’re just busy. And I thought, ‘I should be here, right?’ It got long and I said, ‘I’ll just go. It’s cool. I’m just going.’”

So Majors got up and wanted to leave, but luckily he couldn’t make it out of the building. He went to one to share what happened next:

“I got to the door but then they said [casting director] Sarah Finn would come. We went into the room and talked. We had this great conversation. I think three years later we had the Kang talk. And now there is no more trepidation, especially because of the person who is Kang. When I said yes, we got the big picture and the layout is cohesive.”

Now Majors plays one of the most complex and intriguing villains in the MCU, and if anyone could pull this off effectively, it would be him. Just wait until you see what they have planned for him if you watch Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Kevin Feig also recently talked about how Kang is Marvel’s highest-rated villain in history with test-screening audiences! He explained:

“For years we always had a hunch that Kang would be a fantastic successor to Thanos. He’s the same build in the comics, but he’s a completely different villain. That’s mostly because he’s multiple villains. He’s so unique from Thanos, which we really liked.

“In the early days of Quantumania [test screenings], Jonathan started banging in a big way. He’s the most tested villain we’ve ever had in our friends and families [screenings]. That’s really saying something in a film like this. Early on without the effects, Jonathan is his own effect. He’s worked from the start.”

I thought Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was a fun movie and while it wasn’t perfect, it was still great entertainment. However, the Majors stole the show and I’m excited to see what they have planned for him in the future.
