It’s been revealed that Jonathan Majors will be playing Kang The Conqueror in Ant-Man 3 and Marvel movie fans just cannot wait.
It was revealed by Deadline that Jonathan Majors is going to be joining the MCU in Ant-Man 3.
Buried within the article was the news that he would be playing Kang The Conqueror.
This is HUGE news because Kang The Conqueror is a very big deal in the Marvel comics.
Well, fans very understandably got very excited about this news.
First off, Majors is a great actor (take a look at our Lovecraft Country reviews to find out how good he really is).
Secondly, Kang The Conqueror is exactly the sort of Marvel villain the MCU needs.

Jonathan Majors will be amazing as Kang the Conqueror, but I think more than anything, Ant-Man 3 is a fascinating place for him to appear.
The last film with Ant-Man, Avengers: Endgame, was all about time travel. This is a fascinating creative choice that opens up a LOT. pic.twitter.com/7ncW1at9hc

So people took to Twitter to voice their excitement, including Marvel comics writer, Rob Liefeld.
It seems as though people have been waiting for Kang The Conqueror to come to the MCU for a while now.
There were rumours that he could have turned up in Ant-Man 2, but he never did.
It also seems as though Marvel is really going to be opening up the MCU to the Multiverse and time-travel.
We saw time-travel in Avengers: Endgame and we’re going to be seeing the Multiverse in Doctor Strange Into The Multiverse Of Madness.
Kang is directly linked to both those things, which is very interesting.
What do you make of this news?
