A filmmaker has already been hired for the first of the new Avengers films, which were just unveiled at Marvel’s San Diego Comic-Con panel last weekend. Destin Daniel Cretton, who directed Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, will lead Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
This will be the first of two planned Avengers films, the second being Avengers: Secret Wars, which will be released on November 7, 2025, six months after The Kang Dynasty. Only its name and an estimated release date tell us anything about The Kang Dynasty, but we do know that these two team-up movies mark the end of Phase 6 for Marvel Studios’ Cinematic Universe and what Disney is calling the Multiverse Saga.

In the comic version of Secret Wars, several realities were brought together and a multiverse-less soft reset was granted to the Marvel canon—something the movies will undoubtedly be in need of by the year 2025.
Since Cretton was only mentioned for The Kang Dynasty, it appears doubtful that he will helm both Avengers: Secret Wars and The Kang Dynasty. The Russo Brothers directed the last two Avengers films, and Joss Whedon directed the first two until they were joined by The Russo Brothers for Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.
The director of Avengers: Secret Wars will certainly be revealed sooner rather than later, given how early Cretton’s announcement occurred. Stay tuned with us only on Lee Daily
