Despite recent rumors, Marvel is reportedly sticking with Kang as the main antagonist in the upcoming Avengers 5 and Avengers 6 movies. Insiders claim that Marvel is committed to the storyline and may recast the character if necessary.
Marvel's Multiverse Saga
Marvel has announced the titles of the Avengers 5 and Avengers 6 movies, which will conclude the Multiverse Saga. One of the movies features "Kang" in its title, while the other is the Secret Wars conclusion, where the Avengers will battle Kang variants.
Marvel's Groundwork for Kang Dynasty
Marvel has been laying the groundwork for the Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars conclusion for years, making it unlikely that they would abandon the Kang storyline. The recent Loki season 2 finale further supports the idea of heading towards multiversal wars and gives Marvel a way to address the Kang situation.
Deadpool 3 and the TVA
Leaks suggest that Deadpool 3 will feature the Time Variance Authority (TVA) and recruit various superheroes from the multiverse, including Deadpool and Wolverine, to fight Kang. This massive cinematic event will lead right into Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars.
Introducing Non-MCU Characters
Movies like Deadpool 3 will also help Marvel introduce non-MCU characters, such as X-Men members from the Fox universe, who will join the Avengers in fighting Kang. The Marvels has already introduced Beast from the X-Men in a different reality.
Marvel's Commitment to Kang
Insiders, including MyTimeToShineHello and Daniel Richtman, claim that Marvel is still committed to the Kang storyline. While Marvel may recast the villain, they will not abandon the character. If Doctor Doom appears in Secret Wars, he will not be the main villain.
While Marvel could make changes to their plans, the recent withdrawal of director Destin Daniel Cretton from The Kang Dynasty suggests that Avengers 5 is still in the works and Kang will remain the protagonist. It's unclear who will direct the movie.
Loki Producer's Remarks
Loki producer Kevin Wright addressed the Kang rumors and stated that Marvel let them shoot the show they wanted to make. Michael Waldron, who wrote Loki season 1, is working on Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars, indicating that the multiversal wars are coming and the Avengers will face off against Kang.
While anything is possible in the multiverse era of the MCU, it is unlikely that Marvel will deviate from making Kang the main villain in Avengers 5 and Avengers 6. Kang's storyline has been heavily teased and built up, and Marvel has invested too much time and effort into it to abandon it now.
