Get a sneak peek of Kang, portrayed by Jonathan Majors, in the new trailer for Marvel Studios’ Loki Season 2, amid his ongoing legal controversy

The highly anticipated first trailer for Marvel Studios’ Loki Season 2 has recently been released, offering fans a glimpse of Jonathan Majors’ character, Kang, despite the ongoing legal controversy surrounding the actor. Majors has been entangled in a legal battle, facing charges of assault and harassment, leading to significant professional repercussions.

Nevertheless, Marvel has decided to keep him in certain projects, including the behind-the-scenes documentary series, Assembled. As fans eagerly await the new season’s release, they wonder about the extent of Kang’s role and how it will contribute to the broader Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

The Trailer Reveals Jonathan Majors as Kang

In the new footage from Loki Season 2, Jonathan Majors returns as Kang, also known as Victor Timely. The scene depicted in the trailer mirrors what was teased in the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. At the 1:50 mark, Majors’ character, Victor Timely, makes an appearance, introducing himself with the words, “Make the hard choice.”

This is followed by Tom Hiddleston’s Loki uttering the words, “It’s him,” referencing Kang. The trailer offers a brief glimpse of Kang’s machine shining with lightning, hinting at something significant, but it is the last we see of Majors in the trailer.

Kang’s Role in Loki Season 2

Despite Jonathan Majors’ legal situation, Disney has chosen to remain silent on the matter, likely due to Loki Season 2’s already completed filming and post-production at the time of the actor’s arrest. Nevertheless, the court of public opinion has cast a shadow over Majors, even if he avoids further criminal charges.

Kang’s presence in Loki Season 2 is crucial, especially after his appearance in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. Fans are eagerly speculating on how the time-hopping villain will influence the MCU’s overarching narrative. The anticipation is heightened by the knowledge that the fifth Avengers film is titled The Kang Dynasty, indicating Kang’s significance in the future of the MCU.
