Ant-Man Fans Applaud Jonathan Majors For Carrying Quantumania On His Back

Jonathan Majors, for those that aren't awash in Marvel knowledge, will be a reoccurring trend in several upcoming Marvel movies and television shows as Kang and his many different iterations. Audiences were first treated to this new Avengers-level threat in "Loki," where the multiverse is explained. One of the major aspects of the multiverse is that many people exist across several different realities, and each one of these individuals can be an almost mirror image, or somebody completely different. The Kang variant at the end of "Loki" is known as "He Who Remains," and he addresses Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) in a jovial and friendly manner that denotes a slight hint of loneliness.

However, as He Who Remains elaborates in "Loki," his other variants aren't exactly kind and welcoming. In fact, most are actually brutal tyrants that not only wage war on the multiverse itself, but sometimes even between themselves. This is why He Who Remains created the Time Variance Authority in the first place, but one that is unfortunately designed to fail at some point, or be trapped in an endless and repeating cycle. 

Now that "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" is out in theaters, audiences get a fresh look at a new variant named Kang the Conqueror. Needless to say, this version is very different than He Who Remains, much to the delight of Marvel fans.

Fans have some strong feelings about Majors in Quantumania

Throughout much of "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," Jonathan Majors' Kang character steals the show by alternating between a soft-spoken and logical voice, angry and autocratic behavior, and explosive bursts of rage and frustration. In other words, Majors has plenty of room to show off his acting acumen by displaying a tremendous range of emotions. This fact hasn't been lost on fans, who have heaped massive praise on the actor for his efforts in keeping "Quantumania" afloat. 

Taking to Twitter, @Jathushh wrote, "Feels like they couldn't find the balance between it being an Ant-Man film and being the big Avengers-level film. Only good thing about this film is Jonathan Majors as Kang, he's amazing." Many others also extolled the virtues of Majors' acting, with @cultureelixir and @samspeaksmovies both using the word "dominating" to describe Majors' performance, while @bdot_konkwo, @_ryleyjack, and @odomoswasalie all said that Majors was the best part of "Quantumania." In addition, @RenGeekness said that "Quantumania" maintains the feel of its predecessors, but paid special attention to Majors' role of Kang, saying that the actor brings a striking presence to the movie. 

Another Twitter user posted an image of a spine that has been x-rayed and said the picture represented Majors' back after carrying the movie. @muhammadbutt probably summed it up best when they posted a GIF of He Who Remains, and tweeted, "Jonathan Majors steals the show, obviously. Kang is magnetic and terrifying in equal measure. Perfect casting!" 

So, even though "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" is getting reviews that are all over the place, it seems like everybody can agree on one thing — Majors' Kang performance is definitely one of the highlights of the movie.
