Colman Domingo has responded to rumours that he could replace Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Over the last couple of years, Majors has been placed as the primary villain in the multiverse saga within the MCU. His appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was followed up by a major plot device in the second season of Loki.

The fifth Avengers movie was previously called Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, though insiders are calling that movie Avengers 5 now.

Majors' future in the MCU was called into question when he was arrested on suspicions of domestic abuse.

This month, he was found guilty of harassing and attacking his former girlfriend, British choreographer Grace Jabbari back in March.

Marvel needs to decide whether they need to recast Kang, or build another villain for the next MCU phase.

One name that has been linked with stepping in for Majors is Domingo, who was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in Rustin.

Colman Domingo as Kang the Conqueror?

However, he has played those links down, and rather characteristically, played the whole thing cool.

"It’s funny how people are online talking about this," he said in a conversation with Vanity Fair.

"And the moment it started happening, literally, I think I was on my couch. And I was like, 'What rumour? Who? Where’s this coming from?' I just didn’t think about it. The next day I woke up, it’s everywhere.

"You know, listen. My team has had conversations with Marvel about some aspect of the MCU for years. Do I know this to be true or not? I actually don’t know. I feel like my team doesn’t bring me something unless it’s real. So I don’t know. I could be in conversation, but I’m not sure. I would welcome a conversation around it.

"Whatever they’re working out with Jonathan (Majors) and his legacy in the MCU, I feel like I just have to be in my own lane, whatever that is. There’s hearsay, there’s conversations, but I’m not even sure because I feel like nothing comes to me until something’s real. But I’d be down with it.
