Man, all the rumors about Avengers: The Kang Dynasty are starting to look more true as time passes. In recent news, Destin Daniel Cretton will not be directing Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Yeah, things is starting to look like a mess.
Here’s the official report from Deadline:
Deadline hears that filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton has decided to step away as director of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Kang Dynasty to focus on his other Marvel projects. This is an amicable exit, I understand, as Cretton remains fully in the Marvel Studios family.
In fact, Cretton is in talks with Marvel Studios about directing future movies.
Cretton is currently busy on the Marvel Studios/Disney+ series Wonder Man, which he co-created with Andrew Guest, who serves as showrunner. Cretton EPs the series and also directed the first two episodes. The series resumes shooting after Thanksgiving. Wonder Man will be under the new Marvel Spotlight series banner, which are shows that are standalone series and not part of the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Is it possible that Avengers: The Kang Dynasty could be entirely scrapped?! With all the baggage around Johnathan Majors, and Marvel Studios refusing to recast, I can see this film not happening at all. For all we know, maybe they’re just going in a new direction with the film. I also hope that the rumors about Kang being replaced by Doctor Doom doesn’t happen because it’ll just feel rushed. Who knows what’s the future for this movie.
