Ant-Man 3 Casts Lovecraft Country Star As Kang The Conqueror

The Marvel Cinematic Universe may have found its Kang The Conqueror.

According to DeadlineLovecraft Country star Johnathan Majors has joined Ant-Man 3, possibly as the iconic time-travelling supervillain from Marvel Comics.

The report states that Majors will play a lead role in the film, and the sources strongly indicate that he is “likely” to appear as Kang The Conqueror. Additionally, his Ant-Man 3 appearance will potentially build the character up to be the next main antagonist in the franchise, sort of like 2012’s The Avengers did for Thanos.

Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1964’s The Avengers #8, the man named Nathaniel Richards is best known as Kang The Conqueror. Hailing from the 30th century, Kang jumped back and forth through time, battling the likes of the Avengers and Fantastic Four.

Several of his most iconic storylines include the Avengers Forever miniseries (by Kurt Busiek and Carlos Pacheco) and Kurt Busiek’s Kang Dynasty crossover, along with his involvement in the Young Avengers and Uncanny Avengers.

He is a complicated character, as different versions of him exists as different characters altogether. His future self is also a supervillain who goes by the name of Immortus, while his younger self is actually a superhero who joins the Young Avengers as Iron Lad.

In addition to Lovecraft Country, Majors has starred in The Last Black Man in San FranciscoWhite Boy Rick and When We Rise. His previous credits also include JunglelandCaptive StateMuch Ado About Nothing and Da 5 Bloods with the late Chadwick Boseman.

Directed by Peyton Reed and written by Jeff Loveness, Ant-Man 3 stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas. The film has yet to receive an official release date. Stay tuned on Kakuchopurei for more news and updates.
