Loki Star Jonathan Majors' Phone Lock Screen Is Kang The Conqueror

Loki star Jonathan Majors admits he has a picture of his MCU character Kang the Conqueror as his phone lock screen. Previously best known for his roles in Lovecraft Country and The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Majors is on the cusp of reaching a whole new level of fame by joining the MCU. The Emmy-nominated actor was officially cast as Kang the Conqueror last year; at the time, it was said he would make his official debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

However, fans got quite the surprise this summer when Majors popped up in the MCU much earlier than expected. After denying he would be making an appearance on the Disney+ series Loki, Majors took on a starring role in the season 1 finale, playing He Who Remains. His quirky, mercurial character was the creator of the Time Variance Authority and, subsequently, the target of both Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino). Though Sylvie offed He Who Remains at the end of the Loki finale, Majors will continue on in the MCU as his variants - which include the famous Marvel Comics villain Kang the Conqueror.

Majors recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his upcoming Netflix movie The Harder They Fall. Before getting to that, though, Kimmel brought up Majors' role as Kang, since Majors is currently filming Ant-Man 3 in London. Though Majors naturally couldn't say much, Kimmel found something amusing to talk about: His phone lock screen. While out at dinner recently, a waitress spotted Majors' lock screen and tweeted about it, claiming it was "a picture of himself as Kang." A stunned Majors pulled out his phone to reveal that, yes, he does have a picture of Kang there, though it is from the comics and not of himself. "It's for inspiration," he said. The bit can be seen at 2:54 in the video down below.

Kimmel tried to get Majors to reveal whether his Kang will resemble the one from the comics, but the actor swiftly turned the conversation back to the woman who hilariously exposed him online. Still, Majors' enthusiasm for playing Kang is clear, and it only makes his casting more exciting. As Majors has only really played He Who Remains in the MCU, his real performance as Kang is a mystery. That there's so much anticipation for his official debut says a lot about both Kang's formidableness as a villain and Majors' talent.

With Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania still well over a year away, the question on many fans' minds is whether Majors' Kang will pop up somewhere else in the MCU before then. His Loki appearance was a huge surprise, so it could be that Marvel has other projects planned for him that are being kept a secret. At the same time, even if Majors doesn't get to play Kang the Conqueror until Ant-Man 3, his performance will still be worth the wait.
