Scorching the heels of Marvel’s huge future Section bulletins for the MCU at this yr’s Comedian-Con, we now know who might be directing one of many largest upcoming motion pictures. Destin Daniel Cretton, who made Shang-Chi so successful, has the job overseeing Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
The subsequent of the Avengers motion pictures, which is not due on screens till 2 Might 2025, will, alongside Avengers: Secret Wars in November of that yr, wrap up Section 6 of the MCU.
Whereas The Hollywood Reporter bought phrase of Cretton’s hiring to direct, we do not but know who’s writing the film, neither is the solid clear at this level. Clearly, Jonathan Majors, who performed Kang variant He Who Stays in Loki (and seems as one other model in subsequent February’s Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania), might be a vital component. Past that, the remaining is hearsay.
Cretton has change into part of Marvel’s inventive workforce since introducing Simu Liu’s hero to the MCU. He is been creating a sequel to that movie (which, if it involves fruition given at the moment’s information), will possible fill one other of Section 6’s empty date slots. And he is concerned with a Surprise Man sequence for Disney+. Exterior of the MCU, he is additionally been engaged on teen drama/mythological sequence American Born Chinese language.
Although there had been hypothesis that Infinity Conflict and Endgame administrators Joe and Anthony Russo is perhaps as soon as extra concerned, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirmed on the Con that they are not (too busy constructing out their very own initiatives, together with the Grey Man franchise). Cretton appears like a high-quality selection – Shang-Chi balanced character and spectacle successfully, so or hopes are robust for him tackling an Avengers story.
