Destin Daniel Cretton To Direct ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’
Days after Marvel’s massive Comic-Con panel, there’s confirmation of who will be helming the first Avengers movie in Phase 6. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton has signed on to helm Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
The film will be the beginning of the end for the recently dubbed “Multiverse Saga” for Marvel. The film is expected to see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, along with the help of any newcomers, come to blows with Jonathon Major’s Kang the Conqueror. No writer has been announced at this time. It’s also unclear if Cretton will be involved with 2025’s second Avengers film, Avengers: Secret Wars.
Cretton, fresh off Shang-Chi’s success, seems to want to stick around Marvel for a while. Not only is he writing and directing a follow-up to Simu Liu’s new hero, but he’s also working on a new MCU series for Disney+ and a Wonder Man series for the streamer.
The Avengers films have been a cornerstone of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Phase 1 with the release of The Avengers. This was followed up a few years later in 2015 by Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was written and directed by Joss Whedon. Joe and Anthony Russo went on to direct the epic two-part finale to the “Infinity Saga” with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
