Marvel boss Kevin Feige rocked the house at this year’s Comic-Con, which took place in July. He announced that MCU fans will receive two avengers films in 2025 to close out Phase 6. The two feature films will hit theaters just six months apart. Avengers: Kang Dynasty will be released on May 2n/a2025, and Avengers: Secret Wars hits theaters November 7e2025.

According to the deadline, Avengers: Kang Dynasty has now found its author. Jeff Loveness, who recently wrote the screenplay for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniawas tapped to write the next avengers movie for Marvel. Loveness will join Destin Daniel Cretton, who was recently announced to direct the film. As expected, Kevin Feige will serve as producer.

Jeff Loveness has worked on a number of projects over the years, but he’s best known for writing about the popular animated series rick and morty, airing on Adult Swim. Loveness knows Kang well, as he is the main antagonist of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. It makes sense that Marvel would want him on board the next one avengersbecause the character is essential to the story.

Kang the Conqueror

We don’t know much about Avengers: Kang Dynasty regarding the script. We know Lovecraft Country star Johnathan Majors will play the character of Kang the Conqueror, who made his MCU debut in the finale of Loki first season. In the Disney+ series, he was known as “The One Who Remains”. Other than Majors, no other cast members have been announced.

Curiously, Avengers: Secret Wars should be released six months later Avengers: Kang Dynasty November 7e, 2025, and several actors have already been announced. Chris Hemsworth will appear as Thor, Brie Larson will appear as Captain Marvel, Iman Vellani will appear as Ms. Marvel, and Hailee Steinfeld will appear as Kate Bishop. Secret Wars will serve as the final film of Phase 6 and the end of the multiverse saga.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe will conclude Phase 4 with the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The highly anticipated follow-up arrives in theaters on November 11e2022 and stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett and Martin Freeman.

Wright’s Shuri is rumored to take over Blank Panther’s mantle in the upcoming sequel. Chadwick Boseman, who originally portrayed the character, tragically died shortly after the release of Avengers: Endgameafter a long battle with colon cancer.

The launch of phase 5 of the MCU is Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniawhich is set to arrive in theaters on February 17e2023. Peyton Reed, who directed The ant Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp, will direct from the screenplay by Jeff Loveness. Kang the Conqueror will play an important role in the picture, which will undoubtedly lead to an even bigger role in Avengers: Kang Dynasty.

With nearly a dozen movies slated for release by 2025, the MCU is bigger than ever. Although Phase 4 got off to a bit of a slow start, we expect things to kick into high gear in Phase 5, especially with two avengers films that arrived the same year. The roadmap is already drawn. We’ll just have to wait and see how all the pieces fall into place.
