Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania owes Randall Park thanks for his influence on Jonathan Majors’ outstanding performance as Kang the Conqueror.
During the Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, Randall Park delightfully moderated the event. His effervescent charm radiated as he asked questions and humbly accepted his flowers for his immense contributions to the film. As soon as the conference began, Randall Park begrudgingly acknowledged he is the star of the film and that he was fantastic. And after learning about the Shakespearian-like process Jonathan Majors employed for his approach to Kang the Conqueror, we learn that Majors essentially stole Park’s approach for Agent Jimmy Woo.
Jonathan Majors Confesses He Stole Randall Park’s Approach, After Some Light Fishing
RANDALL PARK: Yeah. Now I gotta say I use the same approach for Jimmy Woo.
JONATHAN MAJORS: I saw that.
RANDALL PARK: Yeah.
EVANGELINE LILY: That makes sense.
JONATHAN MAJORS: I’m sorry. That approach was essentially stolen from you.
RANDALL PARK: Oh, oh really?
JONATHAN MAJORS: Yeah, I’m sorry about that.
RANDALL PARK: Oh, no.
JONATHAN MAJORS: Yeah, yeah.
RANDALL PARK: I could tell. I could tell… I was kind of fishing for that.
PAUL BOUSSARD: It’s a very King Lear, talking about Shakespeare, a very King Lear quality, I feel, with Jimmy Woo.
JONATHAN MAJORS: Yeah, big time.
PAUL BOUSSARD: And don’t think that we don’t pick up on it.
RANDALL PARK: Thank you.
JONATHAN MAJORS: Yeah, we see it.Randall Park, Jonathan Majors, Evangeline Lily, and Paul Boussard during the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Press Conference
