'Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantamania': Jonathan Majors states Kang the Conquerer is 'baddest MCU villain'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantamania' is one of the highly anticipated releases this year as fans claim it is going to be a "game-changer" for Marvel. Phase 4 of MCU had an emotional end because of 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,' the movie made fans grieve as they missed seeing Chadwick Boseman as the titular character, and the fans rejoiced at the same time because of a new beginning.
Regardless of the mixed emotions, a new phase also a new dynasty begins with Phase 5. Safe to assume, after Thanos, Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Major) will be the newest and also the biggest threat to the Universe. Will a new set of 'Avengers' assemble to destroy the upcoming antihero? We're not sure. However, fans beloved Paul Rudd's 'Antman' is seen trying his utmost to defeat Major's Kang. Previously fans met a version of Kang as He Who Remains in 'Loki' Season 1.
In a new interview with Fandango, Jonathon Majors divulges what makes his character the “biggest, baddest MCU villain that we've had." "It's where I am. And as the title says, I've conquered it. So, he's a man isolated. Just there. Working it out."
Majors further noted that in any villain’s character arc, “there is the manifestation of power. But, the internal power is really the drive. You know?” He states that with Kang what he found interesting was “that his pain and suffering and discomfort and frustration with society and the world is so great in him that [those qualities] have allowed him to make himself into the supervillain that you see.”
Further adding, "it is that internal friction that gives him that power. Now, how it manifests? Stay tuned! Yeah, his heartache is great and so massive that he does live up to that title of being the biggest, baddest MCU villain that we've had."
The film is directed by Peyton Reed, written by Jeff Loveness, and stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne alongside Jonathan Majors, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas, Kathryn Newton, David Dastmalchian, William Jackson Harper, Katy O'Brian, and Bill Murray.
'Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania' is scheduled to be released in the United States on February 17, 2023, as the first film of Phase Five of the MCU.
