Last week, Loki concluded by revealing who was really behind the Time Variance Authority. Hidden away in his Citadel at the End of Time was He Who Remains, played by Jonathan Majors. The 31-year-old has already been cast in the MCU as time-travelling villain Kang the Conqueror, but this was his first appearance in the franchise as one of his variants.
Now He Who Remains is dead what will Majors’ take on Kang be like?
Well, released on Disney+ today was Marvel Studios Assembled’s behind-the-scenes look at the making of Loki.
And towards the end, Majors himself shared a little more about He Who Remains, who he says has lived forever, and how his take on Kang will differ.
The 31-year-old said of He Who Remains: “Some cultural pop references were, of course, The Wizard of Oz, Sunset Boulevard, Citizen Kane, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”

Praising Majors’ take on the Marvel villain, Tom Hiddleston himself added: “Kang is bent on destruction and I’m so curious to see what Jonathan does in the future.”
From the final scene of Loki, it’s clear that Kang has already taken over the TVA since his statue has replaced that of the Time Keepers.
The time-travelling villain is due to be the main antagonist in 2023’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
But we expect Kang the Conqueror and more of his variants could well turn up in the likes of Loki season 2 and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. After all, he’s set to be the MCU’s new Thanos.
