HOT: Marvel Studios eyeing Colman Domingo to replace Jonathan Majors as new cast for Kang The Conqueror in the MCU

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Marvel Studios eyeing Colman Domingo to replace Jonathan Majors as new cast for Kang The Conqueror in the MCU. 


Colman Domingo is reportedly among the actors being considered to replace Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror in the MCU.

Colman Domingo is reportedly one option that was brought up at Marvel Studios to play Kang.

The role was for the maître d’ at a Black-owned nightclub, and Domingo wore a tuxedo to the audition, impressing the producers with his singing and dancing abilities.

“There was just one problem, his agent said. After the callback, a historical researcher on the show reminded producers that the maître d’s in those nightclubs were typically light-skinned, and Domingo was not. Boardwalk Empire had passed,” read the article.

Domingo added, “That’s when I lost my mind. I can’t take it anymore, I think this is going to kill me.”

This moment had Domingo thinking of quitting acting for good. Fast forward ten years and Domingo is at a different place in his career. There’s Oscar buzz around his acting work in Netflix’s Rustin, and is currently starring in the musical film The Color Purple.

Following his experience a decade ago, Domingo says he now is an “offer-only” actor.

“I became an actor that was ‘offer-only’ probably sooner than the industry thought I should have,” he said. “But I decided I have a body of work. You can go and look at it, you can ask other directors about me, and you can make me the offer or not.”
