Marantz then added: “I had a lot of fun coming up with a few options. These are just a few. I really appreciated being able to draw them. I love working with simple shapes and colors without shadows. It was also an opportunity to challenge myself with portraits. The way I work changes a bit depending on the task and the time I have available“.

The role of Kang was entrusted to Jonathan Majors and Kevin Feige had explained that he gave him such an important character for the saga because he is able to support its weight and interpret all the variations of Kang in an incredible way. The president of Marvel Studios then added: “What I love is that he’s totally different than Thanos. Kang is a completely different type of villain and the fact that he is many different characters at the same time is what makes him more exciting and different.“.
