Marvel Studios has officially confirmed that Jonathan Majors will be making a significant return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in Season 2 of the popular series, Loki. This announcement comes in the wake of Majors’ earlier arrest for assault, raising questions about his continued involvement in the MCU.

Jonathan Majors’ MCU Journey

Jonathan Majors first made his mark in the MCU during Season 1 of Loki, where he portrayed He Who Remains, a Variant of the formidable Kang the Conqueror. Subsequently, he reprised his role as the Conqueror himself in the film Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.

However, on March 26, following the release of Quantumania in theaters, Majors faced legal trouble with an arrest for assault. This incident left fans wondering about the fate of his character and whether he would be recast.

Marvel’s Confirmation

Despite these uncertainties, Marvel Studios has officially confirmed Jonathan Majors’ return to the MCU in a substantial capacity. This revelation was made by Loki Season 2 executive producer, Kevin Wright, during an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Wright expressed his excitement about Majors’ character, Victor Timely, a Kang the Conqueror Variant, being featured in the upcoming season. He mentioned how Kang’s character has a rich comic book history with multiple iterations, and this opens up intriguing possibilities.

Victor Timely’s Significance

Wright emphasized that Victor Timely will play a significant role in Season 2 of Loki, indicating that Majors will have substantial screen time in the Disney+ series. This confirmation comes amidst Majors’ ongoing assault case and the controversies surrounding it.

Jonathan Majors’ Presence in Season 2

A recent report suggested that Jonathan Majors will appear in approximately three out of the six episodes in Loki Season 2. This indicates that fans can anticipate a substantial presence of the actor in the show.

Furthermore, it’s speculated that Majors might not only portray Victor Timely but potentially other Kang Variants, including Kang the Conqueror himself. Considering Kang’s status as a major antagonist in the MCU’s future, his involvement in Loki Season 2 makes strategic sense.

The Awaited Return

As fans eagerly await the return of Loki, they can anticipate Jonathan Majors reprising his role in a noteworthy capacity, despite his legal troubles. Season 2 of Loki is set to premiere on Disney+ on Friday, October 6, promising exciting developments in the ever-expanding MCU.
