Jonathan Majors: Depth and Highlights

The actor behind the new Thanos, Kang the Conqueror, is the mega-talented Jonathan Majors. The 33-year-old American takes on one lead role after another, and it’s not for nothing that critics call him the highlight of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania called. The best man can act, and how! A new megavillain worthy of Marvel, despite the fact that the film in which he debuted on the screen is so disappointing.

Currently he can also be seen with Michael B. Jordan in creed III. The third film in the boxing series is a great success. In fact, in addition to the rave reviews, the blockbuster also set a remarkable record this past weekend: creed III has made the biggest debut for a sports movie. Ever.

However, Majors is still mostly asked about his role as Kang, in ant man 3. The fact that his role in the film was praised sky-high, the young actor, of course, is not blind.

Your opinion on reviews

In a recent interview with IndieWire, he explained how he handles such criticism. “It doesn’t change how I see myself, period. They are all data. I am a performance inside a story One thing I’ll ask my team when we come out of a premiere, when they read the reviews: “How’s the movie going?” I try to keep my plate clean and focus on my part,” said the Marvel actor.

And if you focus solely on the Jonathan Majors part, the overall trend is very positive. Majors himself has also noted this: “The reaction then is: ‘You’re in the right place. You are good. They like you. And then they tell me about the rest of the movie. Sometimes the film is at that level and other times it is not. So Kang’s actor knows how to separate his own performance from the rest of the film. After all, it is and remains a puzzle with hundreds, thousands of pieces. Actors like Jonathan Majors are not the director or the studio. They have only a limited part in the dizzying formula that leads to a good (or bad) movie.

no science

The actor is also well aware that reviews are not science: “They are just people. They have an opinion. You always have an opinion. I am not crazy. I know these are people writing it. These are not my Yale professors or my drama teachers,” Majors said.

“These are people with children and an outlook, a religious upbringing or lack thereof. They live in a city or town, they either want to be seen in a certain way, or they don’t want to be seen at all. I look at the total [op Rotten Tomatoes] and, well, 47 percent. But what does that 47 mean if you also have this movie billing? What do those things mean? it is information I am aware I am not fooling myself”. A wonderful realistic view of things. The Kang actor isn’t blind to the reviews, but don’t overestimate them either. They are just people with an opinion.

And the writer?

the writer of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Jeff Loveness, has a slightly different point of view. He doesn’t have the Jonathan Majors luxury of his part being well judged. In fact, according to many critics, his writing is the movie’s big problem. Loveness admitted to The Daily Beast that he is very surprised: “I was surprised by those reviews to be honest.” He went on to say that these criticisms made him “feel bad. Those weren’t great reviews, and I was like, ‘What the hell…?’”

Regardless, he’s proud of what he’s been able to do with certain characters, but that also adds to the punch: “I’m very proud of what I’ve written for Jonathan Majors and Michelle Pfeiffer. I really thought that was good, you know? And so I was pretty bummed [door de reviews]And I was very sad about that.”

Fortunately, she also gets it better at the end: “I’m like, ‘Damn! No, they are wrong! I am right! MODOK is great!’ I’m pretty happy with it overall, and I think I’ve learned this week that I can take a beating. And now that I’ve learned that it’s not so bad, I can keep doing things.”
