Shang-Chi directs Avengers

Shang-Chi directs Avengers: The Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend broke a ton of news and laid out the general course of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the foreseeable future.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, the first of the two new Avengers films that will be part of Phase 6, will direct by Shang-Chi filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton. It has confirmed today.

In addition to continuing to work on the follow-up to last year’s smash hit Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Cretton is developing a live-action Wonder Woman series. It will be intriguing to see how he applies his knowledge of superhero movies to a large group like the Avengers.

Details on what to anticipate are still limited since the new slate of forthcoming films was just announced last week at the San Diego Comic-Con. However, we know that Kang, or a character variation, will make his formal big-screen debut in February 2023 as part of the forthcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Jonathan Majors will portray him. This comes after his partial debut in the first season of the Loki series on Disney+.

It’s not simple to direct an Avengers film, but given his work on Shang-Chi, Cretton can do it. May 2, 2025, is the release date for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
