The Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con was pretty exciting. In addition to showcasing the entire Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige also announced that The Multiverse Saga will end in Phase 6 with two Avengers films: Avengers: Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
By the time Avengers: Kang Dynasty hits theaters in 2025, it will be six years since the last Avengers movie graced our screens. That’s a pretty big gap, but Kevin Feige told MTV that his view of their place in the MCU has changed since the initial stages. He no longer regards them as the culmination of each phase, but rather as the crowning glory of entire sagas.
The truth is that when we were doing Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3, there were fewer projects over more years. These were smaller projects and individual character stories, and it seemed fitting at the time, that after every two or three years it took for a phase, we would make an “Avengers” movie.
Feige continued: “As [Phase] 4, 5 and 6 were coming together, there are more projects in fewer years – because of all the amazing things we’re now allowed to do on Disney+ and getting characters from Fox, Fantastic Four and Deadpool – it was like, you know, certainly after Infinity War and Endgame, we thought the Avengers movies weren’t plugs. So Many Of Our Movies Now – The Multiverse Of Madness And What You’re About To See In [Ant-Man and the Wasp:] Quantumania, all of them are great team-up movies introducing great parts of the mythology… The Avengers movies really should be the crowning glory of a saga.“It was announced a few days ago that Avengers: Kang Dynasty will be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, who directed Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. However, Deadline’s Justin Kroll said on Twitter that Marvel is looking for another director to helm. Avengers: Secret Wars.
Avengers: Kang Dynasty will be released in theaters on May 2, 2025followed by Avengers: Secret Wars on November 7, 2025. Wish The Multiverse Saga included more avengers movies or are you ok with them being used as saga cappers?
