Jonathan Majors got “anti”, almost walked out of the first Marvel meeting

Jonathan Majors stars as Kang the Conqueror, a character who is able to travel through time, in the new film, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantummania.

But ironically, his first meeting with Marvel Studios almost saw him walk away because the casting office was taking too long to see him.

“I hope this doesn’t bite me in the ass, but I’m out of my Marvel General [meeting]” said Majors. “It was a long time ago. I’m just out of drama school and I’m running around town and I’m sitting in an office. I was brought up in a special way and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time. So I got there and they were just busy. And I was like, ‘I’m supposed to be here, right?’ It was long and I went, ‘I’m just going to go. It’s Josh. I’ll just go.”

I’ve had this debate with my current mentors and old acting teachers where I go, “That’s actually part of the craft of acting.” It brings you closer to the character and it’s quite spiritual. It’s as little acting as possible, which My biggest thing: Don’t lie. Tell the truth.
