Marvel Studios Allegedly Wants to Keep Kang as the Main Villain for Next Avengers Movies

Marvel Studios spent 10 years building up to Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, and now they want to do something entirely different with the character of Kang the Conqueror—too bad they couldn’t keep Jonathan Majors though.

With Majors getting fired by Marvel last year, rumors have been going around on the studio replacing or scrapping the Kang concept entirely. Good news for Kang fans though, it looks like the MCU is going to set out to finish what they started—without Majors’ involvement.

According to insider Daniel RPK (via @HollywoodHandle), Kang is still expected to be the main villain of the next two Avengers films. What’s more, Marvel is also expected to add one more villain to the mix alongside Kang—possibly the MCU’s version of Doctor Doom.

We don’t have any solid news on who is going to take over the Kang role, but some names that have been making the press rounds include Colman Domingo (Transformers: Rise of the Beast, Euphoria) and John David Washington (TENET). Some have even been calling for Chukwudi Iwuji to take on the role; with the canon explanation that his High Evolutionary from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 would be a Kang variant.

I’ll admit, it’s kind of a bummer that we won’t be able to see Majors’ finished version of Kang’s arc, but besides the Quantumania Kang, his alternate versions of the character were considered to be a bit mid-tier when it comes to portrayal. Some even like to tease He Who Remains from Loki kind of feels like an odd theater kid performance.

We don’t know who the next Kang is going to be, but I’m happy Marvel isn’t throwing out what they’ve been building up to since 2020.
