Deadline has announced a significant change in the creative team for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, as Marvel has appointed Michael Waldron as the writer for the upcoming film. A proven asset within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Waldron had already been assigned to pen Avengers: Secret Wars, the MCU installment following The Kang Dynasty.

Michael Waldron steps in to replace Jeff Loveness, the original writer for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. By having Waldron, who is already set to write the sequel, also take over the scripting duties for Kang Dynasty, Marvel Studios is emphasizing the importance of a unified vision for the end of the Multiverse Saga. This change ensures that the storytelling across both films will be deeply interconnected, with Waldron’s creative direction providing a consistent narrative thread.

Despite the online criticism aimed towards his Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness script, Michael Waldron’s Avengers: The Kang Dynasty hiring underscores Marvel’s confidence in his storytelling abilities and his understanding of the MCU’s Multiverse Saga. His previous work on Loki and the Doctor Strange sequel has demonstrated a unique flair for balancing complex plotlines with character-driven narratives, a skill crucial for the upcoming Avengers movies.
