Jonathan Majors, who plays Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, has shared his thoughts on the movie’s negative reviews. Despite being one of the shining stars of the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe project, Quantumania has been met with lackluster reviews, sitting at 47 percent on Rottten Tomatoes
During his appearance on IndieWire’s Screen Talk podcast, Jonathan Majors stated that the negative Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania reviews do not affect his perception of himself. The actor said: “It doesn’t change how I see myself, period. It’s all data. I’m a performance within a story. One thing I will say to my team as we’re leaving a premiere if they’re reading reviews, I’ll say, ‘How’s the movie doing?’ I try to clean my plate and take care of my part.”
The Kang actor also added that the opinions of critics are just that — opinions. “It’s just people. They have an opinion. You always have an opinion,” he said. “I’m no fool. I know these are people writing it. These aren’t my Yale professors or my drama teachers. These are people who have kids and they have a perspective, they have a religious upbringing or a lack thereof.”
Furthermore, Jonathan Majors believes that the score on Rotten Tomatoes does not necessarily reflect the overall success of the film. “I look at the aggregate and, ok, 47. But what does that 47 mean when you also got this amount of box office? What do these things mean? It’s information. I am in the know. I won’t play myself. If you are a critic on a level, I probably know you and understand your politics.”
