However, he was shortly halted and introduced to Sarah Finn, the casting director. Later, Majors had a meeting with Finn, they returned three years later with the character of Kang. Kevin Feige, president of the Marvel Studios, added that Majors was a superb choice for the character of Kang, he said,
“In the early days of ‘Quantumania’ test screenings, Jonathan started to pop in a big way. He’s the highest-testing villain we’ve ever had in any of our friends and families screenings. That’s really saying something with a movie like this. Even early on without the effects, Jonathan is his own effect. He was working from the start.”
He further added,
“It’s always one of the fun rolls of the dice that we do at Marvel, which is to say: ‘Hey, we’re going to make multiple movies around this character, and we’re going to start before the audience has even had a chance to meet him.”
