Marvel has revealed its plans for Phases 5 and 6, including Avengers 5 and 6, and it has now been confirmed who will be the next Thanos from the MCU.
It took nearly three years, but Marvel finally confirmed who he is MCUThanos next is. After the end of the Infinity Saga, which concluded with the two-part ending Avengers: Infinity War And the Avengers: EndgameThe MCU found itself with the daunting task of pursuing what seemed to be the climax of the saga. Obviously, there are still many Marvel characters and sagas from which Marvel Studios can choose, but the future direction of MCU Phase 4 has remained murky in terms of the choice of mods and the identity of the next formidable threat.
The multiverse in the MCU has been a central element in many of the Marvel Phase 4 films and shows, which have suggested that Marvel’s next game over Something will be in the context Secret wars. However, the MCU also introduced Kang, or at least a variant of it, much earlier in Phase 4 until loki series. In the comics, Kang has more to do with time travel than multiple, which raises the question of who or what exactly is the next big threat. There were also preparations for a possible Young Avengers project, as well as steps being taken towards confirmation now Lightning Movie.
After expanding the universe with MCU Phase 4 movies and shows, Marvel has confirmed that Kang is the next MCU Thanos and that he will be the main villain in both. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniathe first movie in MCU Phase 5, and Avengers 5which is now officially titled Avengers: Kang Dynasty. No other Marvel character has been the main villain in two films from two different phases, which shows how pivotal Kang’s role will be in the MCU. Jonathan Majors, who plays Kang in the MCU, played Kang’s alternate He Who Remains in loki, It could be argued that he was also the villain on the show. How will Kang’s time travel comic book origins relate to the MCU’s multiverse story, especially in the movie that leads to Avengers: Secret Wars, remains a mystery. However, it is now clear that Kang is the next bad avenger.
Why did the MCU officially make Kang the next Thanos
The MCU Phase 4 has received a certain level of criticism for the apparent lack of a literal and metaphorical “end-game,” but Kang’s stated focus should tie these seemingly loose threads. With the MCU Phase 5 and Six roster now officially announced – including two back-to-back Avengers films – it’s clear there’s a bigger plan all along. Not only that, but stages 4, 5, and 6 are now called Marvel’s “Multiverse Saga” (similar to naming stages 1, 2 and 3 as “Infinity Saga”), finally confirming their long-running narrative across the line. The only announcement left was the identity of the Multiverse Saga’s central antagonist, and while Kang has more comic-book ties to time travel, the MCU has already created the Marvel villain as a very powerful multiverse-connected character who would be an excellent character. A foil to many heroes now participating in MCU Phase 4.
Kang is very different from Thanos, but he is also one of the strongest, most realistic and intelligent characters in the Marvel universe(s). Kang has battled the Avengers a few times, and there really wasn’t a better choice than Kang for the upcoming MCU’s Thanos. However, the secret wars The comic book arc is the story of Doctor Doom, so it will be interesting to see if the classic villain Fantastic Four will also be a Multiverse Saga villain or if his role in the story will replace Kang in the plot secret wars Adaptation. If there’s one thing that is known about Doom, it’s that he doesn’t accept the second fiddle.
There was no shortage of options as to where the MCU could go after the Infinity Saga. A multiverse related adventure with Kang The Conqueror as the main villain is a really inspiring decision, and it definitely puts in some important differences between the Avengers 2025 films and infinity war/game over two parts. Next Kang MCU appearance, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, should explain more about how the Conqueror of Time and the Multiverse will become a threat to the Avengers. But if his mastery of time allows for more worrisome and hopeless sinister moments like Vision’s cruel double death at the hands of Thanos, his omnipresent presence should add much-needed stakes to the broader Phase 4 narrative.
