Avengers: The Kang Dynasty Will be Directed by Shang-Chi's Destin Daniel Cretton

Marvel has chosen the director for the next big Avengers movie and it will be

Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Cretton will be the next director to step up for the next big MCU team-up movie

following the news that the Russo Brothers would not be directing either Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or its follow-up Avengers: Secret Wars.

Instead, the job will go to Cretton who introduced Shang-Chi to the MCU.

The Marvel film about the martial arts superhero grossed $432 million worldwide,

and Cretton signed an overall deal with Marvel that includes an adaptation of Wonder Man and a Shang-Chi sequel.

It's unclear if Cretton will also direct Secret Wars.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will be the MCU’s big team-up film that will close out Phase 6 alongside Secret Wars.

Kang Dynasty will be released on May 2, 2025, and Secret Wars will be released six months later on November 7, 2025.

While plot details are under-wrap, we know that the MCU has officially entered the Multiverse Saga and Kang,

who is played by Jonathan Majors, has already made (one of) his appearances thanks to Loki on Disney+.

Majors will return as Kang in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania which will be released on February 17, 2023 and kickoff Phase 5.
