Cretton signed an overall deal with Marvel in the wake of Shang-Chi’s success.

‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’ will be the fifth Avengers movie after the blockbuster, Avengers: Endgame, which grossed more than $2.8 billion at the box office. The MCU Phase-6 film is likely to follow the adventure of Kang the Conqueror, whose first big appearance will be in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania set to release on February 17, 2023, in the theaters. Nothing more about the film is currently available, including which heroes will appear.

Thor, Black Panther, Daredevil, Hulk, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, Black Widow, and more among others. The comic-book series also has some upcoming MCU heroes including Mr. Fantastic and other members of the Fantastic Four, and Wonder Man.
