Shang-Chi's Destin Daniel Cretton Tapped to Direct 'Avengers: The Kang Dynasty'

According to THR, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director and writer Destin Daniel Cretton has been named as director for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.

While not much is known about the upcoming fifth Avengers movie, of course, we do know that it will feature Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors, who will be re-introduced at the start of Phase 5 in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

He previously appeared in Loki season one. At Comic-Con last weekend, Jonathan shared that the Kang/He Who Remains from Loki is different than the one we’ll see in the upcoming Ant-Man film.

The MCU is currently in the Multiverse Saga, which spans Phases 4-6. Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will be the second to last film in the Saga, which culminates with a second Avengers film at the end of Phase 6. Get more details here!

Destin is currently in the midst of working on multiple projects for Disney and Marvel, including the upcoming series American Born Chinese, a Shang-Chi sequel, and the most recently announced Wonder Man series for Disney+.

There are multiple dates in Phase 6 for Marvel that don’t have titles, so perhaps the Wonder Man series that is in the works could take up one of those!
