Last weekend during San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios unveiled a massive slate of films through the end of 2025. The incoming lineup finishes Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe before blazing through Phase 5 and Phase 6, which concludes with two Avengers films.
On Tuesday, Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed that Destin Daniel Cretton will direct the first film, titled Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
Cretton recently drew critical and audience acclaim for his work on Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. In addition to being one of Marvel Studios’ stronger entries, the film proved he can handle the large casts and groundbreaking spectacle that’s often required of the MCU.
Cretton is also slated to direct a sequel to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. As if that weren’t enough, he’s currently working with Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Community writer Andrew Guest on a comedy series featuring Wonder Man.
No writers have been selected (or at least revealed) for either 2025 Avengers film, but that news should be coming soon now that the directors are being picked.
Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is set to hit theaters on May 2, 2025.
