Destin Daniel Cretton, who directed Marvel’s Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings, is heading back behind the camera for the superhero studio.

The Hollywood Reporter is stating from sources that Cretton will be taking on the directing chores for their next upcoming Avengers film, The Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.

This appears to be part of Cretton’s overall deal at Marvel which also seems him developing a Shang-Chi sequel and, with Community and Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer-producer Andrew Guest, a Disney+ series based on the character Wonder Man.

The Kang Dynasty is one of two Avengers films that will close out Marvel’s Phase 6 series of films. It is set for release on May 2, 2025 with Avengers: Secret Wars following on November 7, 2025. No director has been announced for Secret Wars.

The titular Kang is a time traveling tyrant, one of the main big bads in Marvel Comics for decades. The character was introduced into the MCU last year in the Disney+ series Loki and is being played by Jonathan Majors. Kang, or at least a version of him as the character’s history is chock full of multiple time travel variants, is next scheduled to appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, due out in theaters on February 17, 2023.
