Destin Daniel Cretton To Helm AVENGERS: THE KANG DYNASTY

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton will direct 2025's recently-announced Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, per a THR exclusive.

As revealed by Kevin Feige at Marvel's presentation at San Diego Comic-Con last week, the Avengers will reassemble for the first time since 2019's climactic Avengers: Endgame, to close out Phase 6 of the MCU with two back-to-back films. We know close to nothing about these projects, other than Kang Dynasty must reference Jonathan Majors' character of the same name, also known as He Who Remains. First seen in the Disney+ series Loki, a different version of the character will also be re-introduced in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Destin Daniel Cretton is also developing a live-action series alongside Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Community writer Andrew Guest, featuring Wonder Man, and has a Shang-Chi sequel in the works.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty has been set for release on May 2nd, 2025, with Avengers: Secret Wars following closely with a November 7th, 2025 premiere date. However, though Joe and Anthony Russo have long expressed their desire to helm a Secret Wars film, Feige asserted to Deadline that the Russo brothers were not involved in the project. No director has yet been confirmed for the sixth Avengers movie.
