After announcing the project last Saturday, Marvel Studios progresses rapidly in the development of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and choose its director. The sequel to the Avengers: Endgame (2019) will arrive from the hand of Destin Daniel Crettonthe filmmaker responsible for Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings (2021), the film that introduced the Chinese hero into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Confirmation came from The Hollywood Reporter And it’s not entirely surprising since it’s common for the film company to hire a well-known collaborator to take over a large-scale production. This will be the fifth installment of the Avengers saga and belongs to the next phase, since the current phase four will end with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
This cinematographic universe is getting ready to present Kang, played by Jonathan Majors, as the next antagonist who will be the reason the Avengers are reunited. The character was introduced in the first season of Loki Under the name of “He Who Remains”, a mysterious cosmic being who holds the fate of the universe in his hands. There will be two big-budget films, the one already mentioned and Avengers: Secret Warswhich can be seen in 2025.
The announcement of the new calendar UCM was announced by Kevin Feig on the Comic-Con 2022, held in San Diego, United States. The president of Marvel Studios announced that the narrative line of avengers has not come to an end after the success of the Infinity Saga, which ended in 2019 with Avengers: Endgame. For now, it is unknown who will make up the cast of the film, but it is understood that some characters such as Iron Man, Black Widow or Captain America will not appear, and they will have new legacies in their place.
Who is the director of Shang Chi?
the jump of Shang Chi to the big screen was approached from an Asian perspective, since the mighty warrior is of Chinese origin and much of his story took place in his mother’s home community. The film was released in theaters in 2021 –later in Disney+– and grossed $432 million worldwide, earning praise from fans and critics alike.
Destin Daniel Cretton was the actor’s guide Simu Liu in the process of interpreting the character in the live action and the results were more satisfactory. The Chinese hero finally had his debut in the UCM and his adventure managed to connect with that of other familiar Marvel faces, as seen in the post-credits scene.
Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will hit theaters in the US on May 2, 2025while, Avengers: Secret Wars He will do the same on November 7 of that same year. Both titles will help build the main plot of phase five and the prelude to phase six. Previously, we will see Kang in the second season of Loki and in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniathe latter will be the one that starts the fifth phase.
