Expected in 2025, “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” may have already found its director in the person of Destin Daniel Cretton, to whom Marvel had already entrusted “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”.
The Avengers will not gather before April 30, 2025 in French theaters. But we may already know the name of the one who will bring them together: The Hollywood Reporter affirms that the production of The Kang Dynasty will be entrusted to Destin Daniel Cretton.
Revealed in the independent circuit, with the magnificent States of Grace in particular, the director had already distinguished himself at Marvel since it is to him that we owe Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, released the year last. It would not be surprising if he also directs the sequel to this opus, even if it has not yet been officially announced.
Like the Russo brothers, who had directed Captain America 2 and 3 before the diptych Infinity War – Endgame, Destin Daniel Cretton will experience a lightning rise within Marvel Studios, since he is offered one of his most anticipated projects. . But will he continue with Secret Wars, which is scheduled for release a few months later? Everything suggests that the films, so close in time, will tell the two parts of the same story, but there is no precision on this subject yet.
No more than on the identity of the screenwriter(s). Or characters who will evolve in the film. But it’s a safe bet that all the heroes already presented and still alive will be there. Starting with Captain Marvel, played by Destin Daniel Cretton’s favorite actress, Brie Larson, who was in all his films. Including Shang-Chi, thanks to the first post-credits scene.
If the feature film follows the comic book published between 2001 and 2002 from which it borrows its title, it will be about Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors, seen in Loki and expected in Ant-Man 3) who tries to conquer the Earth with his son. And causes enough damage to prove he’s an even more formidable foe than Thanos. Especially since he is able to travel between dimensions, spatial and temporal. It will therefore take more than one or two superheroes to stand up to him.
