LokiWithout a doubt, it has been the most impressive production of Phase 4 of the UCM.

The opening of the multiverse, the number of Easter eggs opening the door to characters like Blade, Fantastic 4 o go X-Men and the presentation of the next great villain were the most relevant events.

”The team of Marvel has its ways. It’s a lot like getting a role in drama school. They’re just looking at you. You don’t audition for the parts. You go into drama school, then the dean will observe what you are doing. If they loved you, they touched your shoulder. That’s what happened“, He confessed.
Now, outside the projects of ‘La Casa de las Ideas’, the interpreter is preparing to appear in Creed III, which will be directed by Michael B. Jordan, who will also star in it. Therefore, Majors showed his excitement for working with him.
“What I felt when talking to him was the willingness to collaborate, to do something special, to sacrifice our body, our time, our energy, to tell a story that would add to the sports genre. But really working hand in hand to build this thing, to show that two, in quotes, male leaders can come together and there is no competition, just cooperation, that’s something I want to be an advocate for in my generation.”, He said.
