After a plethora of mediocre releases from MCU over the last couple of years, fans were hopeful that Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man threequel would be the one to break the mold, but fans were once again left disappointed. But one thing that stood out from the underwhelming MCU product was Jonathan Majors as Kang, which even left the Ant-Man star Paul Rudd in complete awe.
Despite the disappointing beginning of the multiverse saga, Paul Rudd isn’t shying away from making fans giggle through his self-deprecating humor.

Paul Rudd didn’t even try to bulk up after witnessing Jonathan Major’s physique
During his appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Paul Rudd went on to express his admiration for Jonathan Majors’s godly physique. And while commending Majors, Paul Rudd doesn’t shy away from getting a few giggles. The Ant-man actor went on to joke about his reasoning behind not trying enough to bulk up for the role, as it would’ve been pointless in comparison with Majors’s terrifying physique, besides Ant-man never takes off his shirt, so there wasn’t any requirement to. He stated,
“He was terrifying, and it was pretty intense. I tried to bulk up and get in shape, but it was pointless compared to Jon and why do it when Ant-Man never takes his shirt off!.”
And it wasn’t only Rudd who was left in complete awe after witnessing Majors’s transformation as the biggest villain of the MCU, as fans were too mesmerized by the enchanting look of Majors as Kang.

And it doesn’t seem to end anytime soon, as the actor is expected to be bigger in the upcoming Creed threequel, where he will be starring alongside Michael B Jordan.
