“Hopefully, what we do with The Kang Dynasty; what we do in the MCU; what we do in these Adonis movies… Hopefully, they go, ‘That is now the pole star. That is what we’re aiming for now’. In the same way, I looked at Denzel [Washington] and Sidney Poitier and Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep and Daniel Day-Lewis, and went, ’I’m going there.’”
Jonathan Majors shared that he will be the only “Big bad” the franchise will have this time around and aims high, as he wants to be compared to actors like Denzel Washington and Daniel Day-Lewis. The bar has already been set high as Thanos has set a new record for supervillains. But Jonathan Major’s Kang will have a major benefit over Thanos as he will have more screen time and will affect the universe more, will be explored more than the Titan.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be released on 17 February 2022.
