Man of the moment, ‘Lovecraft Country’ actor, Jonathan Majors has landed himself a key yet unknown role in the upcoming ‘Ant-Man 3’ movie.

Peyton Reed will return to direct the film that will also see Paul Rudd return as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man. Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas are also expected to return. Rumours suggest that Majors may take on the role of Kang the Conqueror, a time-travelling super-villain.

Reed recently said: “The third Ant-Man movie is going to be a much bigger, more sprawling movie than the first two. It’s going to have a very different visual template.”

This would see Rudd returning for the fifth time as the character following the two previous films and both ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Avengers: Endgame’.
