A new fan-theory suggests that the Avengers: Endgame might have set up the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next big villain in the time-travelling Kang.
The Avengers only just defeated Thanos at the end of Endgame, but one theory suggests that their time-travelling solution might’ve created an iconic villain from the comics for them to tackle next. Combining story elements from Avengers: Endgame alongside some scientific knowledge, the fan theory suggests that Kang the Conqueror might begin to plague the Avengers during Phase 5 before paving the way to bigger cosmic threats.
The Avengers: Endgame fan theory comes from Reddit, springing from Tony Stark’s line of dialogue “You mess with time, it tends to mess back”, backed up by Newton’s Third Law of Motion to suggest that the Avengers’ meddling with time will draw Kang the Conqueror to Phase 5 of the MCU. The theory goes on to say that bringing Kang the Conqueror to Phase 5 leaves enough time for Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to set up Galactus in Phase 6. The theory signs off by suggesting that Kang the Conqueror could show up as early as 2022 in a Fantastic Four movie. Take a look at the theory that Avengers: Endgame set up Kang the Conqueror below.
