I"ve Worked Out The Perfect Kang Dynasty Replacement For Avengers 5

  • Avengers 5 might not explore the Kang Dynasty storyline following a series of disappointing updates.
  • I would love Avengers 5 to explore Marvel Comics' recent Avengers Forever event, which brought together a team of multiversal superheroes.
  • Kang could still be featured in Avengers Forever, but as part of a greater villain team, setting up the MCU's biggest battle ever for Avengers: Secret Wars.
I've worked out which storyline from Marvel Comics would be perfect to replace Kang Dynasty in Marvel Studios' upcoming Avengers 5. First announced by Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige in 2022, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty was originally expected to pit a new team of Earth's Mightiest Heroes against the multiversal villain Kang the Conqueror and his variants. The MCU crossover movie has seen a series of disappointing updates, however, which have left me curious about which direction Marvel Studios will take the first Multiverse Saga Avengers movie.
Controversies surrounding Jonathan Majors prompted Marvel Studios to make alterations to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Most notably, an article by The Hollywood Reporter back in February noted that the movie's title may be changed, while director Destin Daniel Cretton and writer Jeff Loveness also departed the project. All this has left me confused about the status of Avengers 5, but recent updates suggest the project may now be moving in the right direction, and I think one recent Marvel Comics storyline would be the strongest, most impactful, and most thrilling story to explore.

2021’s Avengers Forever Event From Marvel Comics Fits In The Multiverse Saga Perfectly Avengers Forever Could Establish A Massive Team Of Multiversal Characters In The MCU's Phase 6 Close Not to be confused with 1998's Avengers Forever storyline, which saw Avengers ally Rick Jones gather heroes from varying time periods into a powerful new team to battle Immortus, 2021's Avengers Forever explored a storyline that would fit perfectly in the MCU's Multiverse Saga. A live-action adaptation of the more recent Avengers Forever would be my dream replacement for Kang Dynasty in Avengers 5. This is especially true as adapting this event would signify a fantastic introduction for one heavily-rumored supernatural hero: Ghost Rider.
Several actors have expressed interest in playing Ghost Rider in a Marvel movie, most notably Ryan Gosling, Norman Reedus, and Keanu Reeves.
In Avengers Forever, Robbie Reyes' Spirit of Vengeance, previously portrayed by Gabriel Luna in Agents of SHIELD, worked under the mysterious Avenger Prime to bring together a team of multiversal superheroes. This was in response to the emergence of the villainous Multiversal Masters of Evil, who have wreaked havoc across all realities, conquering or destroying other Earths. Marvel Studios' exploration of the multiverse, and the introduction of a number of powerful variants, makes me certain that Avengers Forever would be the best story to tell in Avengers 5.
Avengers 5 Adapting Avengers Forever Would Explain Its Huge Cast Of MCU Characters Avengers 5 Is Reported To Include More Than 60 Returning MCU Characters Close During a recent report by Deadline regarding Shawn Levy being eyed to direct Avengers 5, they also suggested that sources close to the Phase 6 movie say "more than 60 MCU characters could reprise their roles." The prospect of such a huge cast has divided fans, and I share some of these doubts, but an adaptation of Avengers Forever would certainly constitute this colossal roster. Ghost Rider's Multiversal Avengers team in Avengers Forever comprised variant heroes from many different worlds, presenting the opportunity for characters from the MCU's history, and other Marvel franchises, to return.
Marvel has been working hard in recent months to pull [Avengers 5] together so shooting can begin next year... Sources close to the project say more than 60 MCU characters could reprise their roles​​​​​​​... Many of the characters in this film would have equal footing, making it more of an ensemble feature instead of a handful of characters leading the team.
Avengers Forever introduced alternate versions of notable heroes, including Tony Stark's Ant-Man, Wolverine empowered by the Phoenix Force, T'Challa's Vibranium Man, and many different Captain Americas, to name a few. Following Deadline's report, I've expressed confusion as to how so many characters could be featured in Avengers 5 without any other Multiverse Saga Avengers movies setting up a new team. Adapting Avengers Forever and its massive roster of multiversal heroes would provide the perfect explanation.
Kang The Conqueror Could Still Be Included In Avengers Forever, Though Not As The Central Focus Kang Could Be A Member Of Avengers 5's Multiversal Masters Of Evil Close Perhaps the biggest disturbance to Avengers 5's production, and the Multiverse Saga as a whole, was Jonathan Majors' 2023 conviction and subsequent firing from Marvel Studios. Since every Kang variant thus far has been played by Kang, the future of every iteration is currently up in the air, and it's unlikely the answer to what will happen with the villain will surface anytime soon. While some believe the MCU may move on from Kang's storyline, I'm much more inclined to think the villain will be recast, allowing him to return in Avengers 5, though perhaps not as the Avengers' only adversary.

In Marvel Comics' Avengers Forever, Ghost Rider's Multiversal Avengers took on the Multiversal Masters of Evil. Brought together by Doom Supreme and the Council of Red, a group of Mephisto variants, the Multiversal Masters of Evil hoped to disrupt the multiverse by killing every Earths' heroes. A recast Kang would fit in perfectly with the likes of Mystique's Dark Phoenix, a Venom-enhanced Red Skull, Kid Thanos, and King Killmonger. Many of these villains could also help to flesh out Avengers 5's 60-strong cast, with the Multiversal Masters of Evil posing the greatest threat the MCU has ever seen.

Avengers Forever Is A Great Way To Conclude The Multiverse Saga Avengers 5 Can Make The Most Of The Multiverse With Avengers Forever Close Since the beginning of the Multiverse Saga, Marvel Studios has debuted several variants of the MCU's most significant heroes. Most notably, What If...? introduced animated alternate characters, while Loki, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and The Marvels brought variants into the live-action side of things. Even so, I still feel that Marvel Studios hasn't made the most of the wild and wonderful possibilities the multiverse contains, but adapting Avengers Forever in Phase 6 can change this.
Peggy Carter's Captain Carter led a team of Captain Americas and Captain Marvels in Avengers Forever, so Hayley Atwell's prominence as the super soldier in the Multiverse Saga could set up her key role in Avengers 5.
Avengers Forever features the appearances of many incredible and fantastically weird variants, some of whom I've already mentioned. Marvel Studios has the whole of the multiverse at its disposal, so bringing the likes of Doom the Living Planet, Thor imbued with the Iron Fist, Infinity Thing, Ape Captain America, and the Prehistoric Avengers, among others, into Avengers 5 would make complete sense. This would contribute to one of the most unexpected adventures ever depicted in the MCU, but would be an excellent way to conclude the Multiverse Saga while showcasing the concept's true potential.

Avengers Forever Would Lead Into Avengers: Secret Wars Perfectly Avengers Forever Can Set Up The MCU's Biggest Battle Ever Close Avengers 5 and Avengers: Secret Wars need to try hard to at least match, if not exceed, the success and popularity of Infinity War and Endgame.
Avengers Forever culminates in Marvel Comics' self-proclaimed "greatest battle in the history of the multiverse," which I want to see in Avengers 5 for two reasons. Depicting one of the MCU's biggest skirmishes ever is the perfect opportunity for Avengers 5 to one-up Avengers: Endgame's epic final battle - which has seemed like a tall task since the Infinity Saga movie. Featuring or setting up a massive multiversal battle will also enable Avengers 5 to lead directly into Marvel Studios' Avengers: Secret Wars, the final project of the Multiverse Saga.
Together, Avengers 5 and Avengers: Secret Wars need to try hard to at least match, if not exceed, the success and popularity of Infinity War and Endgame. Expected to be adapted from Marvel Comics' Secret Wars event in 2015, Avengers: Secret Wars will likely deal with incursions ravaging many realities, which could be set up perfectly if Avengers 5 adapts Avengers Forever's "greatest battle." A Multiversal War has been teased since Loki season 1, so I would love to see Avengers 5 bring this to fruition, even if it's not in the way audiences may have initially imagined​​​​​​​.​​​​​​​
