Jonathan Majors Joins the Cast of ‘Ant-Man 3‘ in Major Role. It’s been widely known that a vast majority of the Ant-Man franchise cast will be reprising their roles for the new Marvel Studios film, but it seems the film has official cast its first MCU newcomer, Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country, Da 5 Bloods). In even better news, Majors is reported by those close to production to be portraying the notorious time-traveling villain, Nathaniel Richards, better known as Kang the Conqueror.

Deadline shared the news and role speculations sharing in an exclusive report, “Jonathan Majors is now ready to make his mark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a big way. Majors has been tapped for one of the lead roles in the next Ant-Man movie opposite Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily. The studio had no comment, but sources close to the project say he is likely to play the super-villain Kang the Conqueror. 

Sources add that like with so many new characters in the MCU, there could be a twist with how the character is featured in future films, but as of now he is likely to be one of the main villains in the next installment in the franchise.

Marvel Studios has yet to confirm whom Majors will be portraying in the film, but Kang the Conqueror has been rumored to be a huge part of the next Phase of the MCU for some time now. Peyton Reed is set to return as the director for Ant-Man 3 to complete the trilogy. Both Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are set to reprise their rolls as Scott Lang (Ant-Man) and Hope Van Dyne (The Wasp). Also expected to return are Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet Van Dyne), and Michael Peña (Luis). Writer and co-producer Jeff Loveness has been chosen by Marvel to pen a script for the third installment in the Ant-Man franchise. We can’t wait to learn more about this sequel and how it will affect the future of the MCU.
