In the newest Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania movie, Jonathan Majors plays the time-traveling character Kang the Conqueror. Ironically, though, he nearly left his first appointment with Marvel Studios because the casting office was taking too long to see him.

As per Deadline, Majors added that he hopes this doesn't bite him in the behind, but he left his Marvel general meeting. This happened a very long time ago. He was rushing around town after graduating from acting school while sitting in the office. The actor had a pretty certain upbringing, and he doesn't want to take up anyone's time. Majors entered, and they were all working. He questioned whether he was supposed to be there. As it grew too lengthy, he said that he was simply going to go. It's really cool, and he will just leave.

Majors wasn't able to leave the building. As he arrived at the door, they informed him that casting director Sarah Finn would soon arrive. They chatted after entering the room. They were engaging in this wonderful discussion. They had the Kang talk, he believes, three years later, and there is no fear any longer, especially given the character. Majors gave the go-ahead when he said yes, and the information presented is coherent.

For the character of Kang, majors bulked up by consuming 6,100 calories daily and lifting numerous times per day. Given how he appeared in The Last Black Man in San Francisco, the effects are being hailed as revolutionary.

The actor previously told Vanity Fair that his drama school stressed the importance of not lifting weights or working out. They were quite adamant about them not getting too huge, especially with the guys, mainly because it alters their joints and what they call the breathing costume. Majors has always had a problem with that because he was as strong as an 18-year-old could be because he grew up playing sports in Texas at a really competitive level.

It makes one feel more connected to the character, in his opinion. The argument that this is truly part of the trade of acting is one that he has had with both his current mentors and former acting teachers. It gets pretty spiritual and draws one close to the individuals. The most important thing for him is to not lie, so do as little acting as you can and tell the reality.
