For much of the last year, there's been speculation about Marvel's plans for Kang. Initially, Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania was supposed to introduce Kang as the big villain for the Multiverse Saga. However, the movie underperformed, and actor Jonathan Majors, who played Kang, faced assault allegations and was subsequently dropped by the studio in December. As a result, Marvel Studios is reportedly reevaluating its future plans, including the next Avengers movie, originally titled The Kang Dynasty.

Qué actor podría reemplazar a Jonathan Majors como Kang en el MCU?

Marvel is reportedly changing the title of Avengers 5 from The Kang Dynasty, a decision influenced by Jonathan Majors' departure from the role and the lukewarm response to Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania. Originally, Shang-Chi director Destin Daniel Cretton was attached to the project, but he has since departed, along with writer Jeff Loveness, who was replaced by Michael Waldron. As of now, the film lacks a publicly announced director. Despite these changes, Avengers 5 is still slated for release on May 1, 2026, though that date could also be subject to change.

Marvel's future plans remain uncertain following the changes to Avengers 5. Speculation suggests that Galactus could step into the role of the next major antagonist, with Avengers 6 potentially revolving around Secret Wars. In the meantime, attention is on upcoming projects like Deadpool & Wolverine, the newly cast The Fantastic Four, and the animated revival of the mutants in X-Men '97, set to premiere this summer.
