RUMOR: ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’ & ‘Secret Wars’ Directors Wishlist Revealed

Who will direct?

Avengers: Secret Wars Marvel Studios

The frontrunners to direct Avengers: Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars have seemingly been revealed, with some familiar faces to Marvel fans in the running.

There have been massive changes when it comes to the Avengers franchise recently, with Destin Daniel Cretton dropping out of directing Kang Dynasty and Michael Waldron now set to write the film along with Secret Wars. According to insider DanielRPK, the directors eyed to replace Cretton include Sam Raimi (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness; Spider-Man) and the duo of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Moon Knight; Loki).

While fans have been clamoring for Sam Raimi to direct Avengers: Secret Wars ever since it was announced, the internet seems split on which directors should tackle both films. Given Kang’s close ties to Loki, it only makes sense for Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead to handle Kang Dynasty. The project is still years away, so Marvel will likely wait to see where the directors go next to determine who gets the keys to the project.

The Future of the Avengers Franchise

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is the first movie in a two-part finale to Marvel’s Multiverse Saga. It will be followed by Avengers: Secret Wars, rounding out Marvel Studios’ Phase 6. Both films are scheduled to arrive in theaters in 2025.

Destin Daniel Cretton recently made the decision to step down from his role as the director of the upcoming Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. However, Destin Daniel Cretton’s Avengers: The Kang Dynasty departure is not an exit from the Marvel family but rather a realignment of his directorial commitments as he’s focused on Wonder Woman and Shang-Chi 2.

Secret Wars is a crossover event that will bring together characters from all across the Marvel multiverse, so Iron Man’s experience and leadership will be invaluable to the Avengers. Michael Waldron is set to write the upcoming Marvel Studios film Avengers: Secret Wars, but a director has yet to be announced.
