Jonathan Majors Joins the Ant-Man 3 Cast!

-

Lovecraft Country and Da 5 Bloods star Jonathan Majors is joining the Ant-Man 3 cast, according to a report by Deadline. While the studio had no comment, their sources are saying that Majors will likely play the villain Kang the Conqueror.

In the Marvel Comics, Kang the Conqueror is a time-traveling character also known as Nathaniel Richards, a genius, scholar, engineer and technician from the 31st century. While Kang has no superhuman abilities, he has advanced technology such as battle armor, hologram and force-field projection, and more.

Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas are the returning Ant-Man 3 cast members. The sequel will reportedly start shooting at the end of 2020 or beginning of 2021 for a release in 2022.

Peyton Reed, who directed both 2015’s Ant-Man (buy here) and 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp (buy here), will be back in the director’s chair.

The script for the highly-anticipated third installment was written by Jeff Loveness. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is producing.

Jonathan Majors’ credits also include The Last Black Man in San Francisco, which premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. The actor is starring in Netflix’s upcoming The Harder They Fall, which is currently in production, and will also star in Devotion.

In the popular Lovecraft Country, executive produced by J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele, Majors plays Atticus Freeman as he journeys with his childhood friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) on a road trip from Chicago across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father Montrose (Michael Kenneth Williams).

Their search-and-rescue turns into a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and monstrous creatures that could be ripped from an H.P. Lovecraft paperback.

The first Ant-Man movie hit theaters in July of 2015 and earned $180 million domestically and $339.1 million internationally, for a worldwide total of $519.3 million.

The second movie opened in July of 2018 and grossed $216.6 million in North America and $406 million overseas, for global total of $622.7 million.

Ant-Man and The Wasp also starred Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Kamen, Abby Ryder-Fortson, Randall Park, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Laurence Fishburne.

Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard produced the film, which was executive produced by Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Charles Newirth and Stan Lee. Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, Paul Rudd & Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari wrote the screenplay.
