Marvel made another splashy casting announcement today after weeks of being pretty quiet. Today, they announced that actor Jonathan Majors as been added to the cast of Ant-Man 3. He will be joined by returning cast members Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily with Peyton Reed returning to direct.

Sources of Deadline believe that he will be playing super-villain Kang the Conquerer. Kang is a time-traveler who has battled against the likes of Fantastic Four, multiple Avengers teams and the Young Avengers.

Jonathan Majors has been seen most recently in HBO's Lovecraft Country, but has appeared recently in Netflix's Da 5 Bloods and A24's The Last Black Man In San Francisco. He also had roles in films like White Boy Rick and Hostiles.

I really haven't seen much of Majors other than Da 5 Bloods, so I don't have any idea how great an actor he is. However, after hearing all the buzz he got after people saw him in The Last Black Man In San Francisco and Lovecraft Country, I'm assuming that he's legit. Marvel has also always done well with casting for their movies, regardless of if they're stars or breakout actors like Majors. Based on their track record, I'm going to assume they know what they got with him.

I'm more interested in how Kang is going to be used in the MCU moving forward. I think he has potential to be their next big bad to follow up Thanos, but since he's first appearing in Ant-Man 3, I wonder if he will be there as set up for future films or as a throw away villain. We will have to see down the road on how that turns out.
