After the final fall of Thanos in the Infinity Saga, the next great villain of the MCU is one who wanders through multiverses and quantum realms. We already saw a version of the character in the series Loki (2021), but the true face of the evil antagonist has yet to be revealed. Whatever his plan, everything indicates that the final confrontation will take place in two and a half years, with the premiere of the next film. avengers. Nevertheless, Kang the Conqueror will have its debut from the next Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. And as soon as he hits the screen, he will certainly seek to establish himself as a menacing and monumental presence.
A recent article from Men’s Health addresses the hard physical work of the actor Jonathan Majorswhose future projects include the third installment of Ant Man, precisely in the role of Kang. On the one hand, the text states that the actor plans to “offer a rich and multidimensional performance like no other”, inspired by the great diversity of villains that have made up the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On the other hand, a couple of quotes make it clear how the character’s own corporality will not go unnoticed.
According to the publication, Majors has spent the last year working his muscles, under the guidance of trainer Jamie Sawyer, who decided to use the same strategy that he uses in boxers and mixed martial arts fighters. The goal was to put performance above aesthetics, as the antagonist for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania demanded it.
“[La de Ant-Man] is the warrior version of Kang, so we focused on what that warrior would look like who has been around for years and has developed all sorts of combat skills,” Sawyer stated. “It was about making him look like an imposing figure.”

Jonathan Majors himself commented to Men’s Health that what attracted him to Kang was the dimension and potential of the character. And to play him with integrity, it was obviously necessary to comply with the strong appearance that often defines various superheroes and supervillains. So, he had to undergo that rigorous and painful training that, on a personal level, he understood as “growth”.
“I look at Kang and say, ‘Okay, great.’ It’s a certain intellectual property that people expect this from [un físico específico] At least,” said the actor. “No one should put themselves or their families in a place where they are suffering, but their own discomfort is not necessarily a bad thing. That is growth. It’s not comfortable, but you’re here to save the world, right? Or to take over the world.”
According to the outlet, Majors gained ten pounds of muscle to Quantumania; another five for her role in the boxing movie Creed IIIand six extra for the drama Magazine Dreams that he stars in.
Stephen Broussard, producer of Quantumania, declared for his part that Majors has “an insane work ethic”, based on his high level of commitment to each character. And Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, described him as an “incredibly compelling” actor who makes any demanding endeavor look easy.
