3. Loki (2021-)
Marvel fans have a lot to be happy about since Loki was renewed for a second season. But one thing we were excited to see was Jonathan Majors in the final episode of Loki season one. Why? Because it was finally revealed that Kang / ‘He Who Remains’, played by Jonathan Majors, has been pulling the TVA strings all along. The Loki series follows Loki, the God of mischief, as he deals with the fallout of the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019). After stealing the tesseract, an alternative version of Loki is sent to the Time Variance Authority (TVA), an organization tasked with monitoring the timeline.
Jonathan Majors plays an overwhelmed but evil Kang the Conqueror, and you can’t help but want to know more about this powerful being from the moment he appears on the screen. This time-traveling series was also a set-up to introduce Kang to Marvel Universe fans before his upcoming appearance in MCUs Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in 2023. Here is Jonathan explaining what it’s like to play the villain in Loki.
4. Devotion (2022)
In this American war drama, two Elite fighter pilots, Jesse Brown and Tom, become one of the most celebrated wingmen in the US Navy’s history during the Korean War. This movie is based on a true story of the life, troubles, and service of historic African American aviator Jesse Brown. Although they come from different racial and economic backgrounds, when they join Strike Fighter Squadron 32, these two men form a unique friendship, especially when it’s a life-and-death situation to fight the enemy.
5. The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019)
The Last Black Man in San Francisco was probably one of Major’s best movies to date. Although this was a small-budget indie project, Jonathan was a breakout star helping the movie gain critical acclaim and recognition as one of the best movies of 2019. This movie is about two young black men who have lived in San Francisco since they were children but are slowly coming to terms with the fact that the city no longer has a place for them.
