Marvel is currently facing a major casting problem.

Jonathan Majors, the actor who portrays the role of Kang the Conqueror in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has recently been arrested and charged with assault in New York. This incident has left Marvel with some difficult decisions, as Kang is set to be a major figure in future Marvel movies. With all of the scandal surrounding Majors at this time, it seems that Marvel will be left to replace the actor.

Jonathan Majors Drama Brings Need for a Replacement

In recent news, there has been a lot of discussion around the possible recasting of John Boyega as Marvel’s Kang the Conqueror. John Boyega is a British actor best known for his role as Finn in the recent Star Wars films. He has recently been on the radar of many fans who are interested in seeing him in a superhero film. In the past, it was reported that Boyega was considered for the role of T’Challa in the Black Panther sequel, a role that was ultimately filled by the late Chadwick Boseman’s character’s sister, Shuri. However, fans are now predicting he may be slotted for another role in the MCU.

Regardless of who eventually lands the role, it’s clear that Marvel Studios is interested in making Kang a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the coming years. The character, a time-traveling conqueror from the 30th century, has a long history in the Marvel comics and is closely tied to the company’s Secret Wars event. As the Multiverse saga continues to unfold, we’ll definitely be seeing more and more of Kang in future Marvel movies.

At the end of the day, the decision to cast John Boyega as Kang will ultimately come down to Marvel’s producers and the actor himself. There’s no doubt that Boyega has the talent and the experience to pull off a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but there are also plenty of other actors who could be considered for the part. Whatever happens, though, it’s clear that Kang is going to be a major player in the Marvel movies to come, and fans are eager to see if someone new will step into the role.
