Majors will play a Black amateur bodybuilder who struggles to find human connection in this exploration of celebrity and violence.

He will also star opposite of Michael B. Jordan in Creed III which is slated to open in November. He is also set to star in the Korean War pic Devotion for Sony.

Last year was also a busy year for Majors who entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Kang the Conquerer, the next villain to cause havoc in the MCU. He unveiled the character in Marvel’s Loki TV series and is expected to reprise it in Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantumania.

He also starred in the critically-acclaimed Netflix western The Harder They Fall, which also starred Idris Elba and Zazie Beetz.

In 2020, Majors gave a standout performance as the star of HBO’s record-breaking hit series Lovecraft Country. Majors went on to earn both Emmy and Critics’ Choice nominations for his role as Atticus Freeman. That same year, Majors starred in Spike Lee’s epic war drama Da 5 Bloods.
