“Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, and Julius Caesar were influences on Kang. Start there,” Jonathan Majors advised us when asked about his inspirations for the role of Kang the Conqueror, the next big bad in the Marvel universe, at Deadline’s Sundance studio recently.

The Primetime Emmy nominee continued, “Counterpoints, which is also important in creating character, is to figure out how does he encounter people.”

“Watch out for how smart I am; you’re smart. You can check out Iron Man, which is the superhero of superheroes, starring Robert Downey Jr.

How do I counter-act that in the zeitgeist in order to be the super villain of super villains?, asks Majors about his acting discovery process for Kang. “At this point, I could write a book on this.”

In Loki from the Marvel/Disney+ series, Majors’ Kang the Conqueror made his screen debut. If you haven’t been watching, Kang is the next major villain in the MCU after Thanos. He produces multiple personalities who fight in various time-line universes. On February 17, Kang will make his next appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Majors will return to the role in the MCU’s Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (2025) and Avengers: Secret Wars (2026).

The premiere of Majors’ most recent film, Magazine Dreams, which is for sale outside of the U.S. Competition, won over the Eccles Theater last night. Majors portrays a troubled, amateur body builder who is spiralling downward in the movie. Jonathan Majors is a revelation, says Deadline critic Valerie Complex. It’s challenging to look away from him. The audience will be riveted by the character, who demands it.
