Shang-Chi Director Destin Daniel Cretton to Direct Avengers: The Kang Dynasty

Marvel dropped a lot of news about the Marvel Cinematic Universe during San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, including the titles of the two next Avengers films—Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, both set to come out in 2025.

While 2025 is still a little bit away, we found out today that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director, Destin Daniel Cretton, will be helming The Kang Dynasty as well.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Cretton will only direct the first of the dual Avengers movies, with The Kang Dynasty set to premiere on May 2, 2025. The news isn’t super surprising given that Cretton has an overall deal with Marvel and is also directing the Shang-Chi sequel as well as developing the live-action Wonder Man series for Disney+.

We don’t know much about the plot of The Kang Dynasty, but given the title, it’s more than likely that Jonathan Major’s Kang the Conqueror—a version of which we first saw in Disney+’s first season of Loki—will be the Big Bad that the superheroes must face. We will also see Kang before then, of course, specifically in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which comes out on February 17, 2023.

Other than that, however, we’re pretty much in the dark as of now about The Kang Dynasty, with no known writer attached to the project and no other plot details or stars officially attached. In the meantime, there’s still A LOT of other Marvel projects that will come out before then to keep us suitably entertained.
