Jonathan Majors has just debuted as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and is set off for a bright future in the MCU as the new big bad. Upon entering the MCU, the Ant-Man star had a surprising revelation of refusing advice from Michael B. Jordan in becoming the next MCU villain.
Michael B. Jordan is known for being Black Panther’s renowned villain, Erik Killmonger. Seeing as Majors worked with Jordan on Creed III, and now entering in the MCU ensemble, it is only natural that the two have developed a good friendship. However, Majors admitted that he didn’t want advice from the guy when it came to creating Kang the Conqueror.
“No, I didn’t, and I don’t really believe in that…” Majors told ET Online when asked if he sought for Jordan’s advice, “Every man, every artist, everyone has their own experience on it. I don’t really care what someone else’s experience is because, for me, at this level… I’m in two huge blockbusters about to hit cinemas.”

“For me and my mental health, I can’t compare. There’s no other outcome than a good experience I can expect.” Majors said, “I do my best work when I feel secure. Where I feel secure enough to be dangerous. Or I feel safe enough to be daring. I don’t want anybody else in my head.”
Kang the Conqueror is undeniably different from Killmonger. Apart from the variant’s main goal of conquering the multiverse, Kang is more ruthless and dangerous as compared to the Black Panther villain.
The new reigning Thanos has even admittedly killed off Avengers in a different realm, and seeing as Kang is technically a new MCU cast, it is only fair that Majors gets to shape the character in how he interprets it on his own.
For now, you can check out Kang’s debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania which is now showing in theaters worldwide.
