Marvel’s newly-announced Avengers: The Kang Dynasty has found its director in Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings helmer Destin Daniel Cretton.

This past weekend, Marvel’s Kevin Feige officially announced a slew of new projects from the studio, including Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Destin Daniel Cretton, best known for his work on last year’s Shang-Chi and the 2013 drama Short Term 12, has come aboard to direct the movie for Marvel, making him the fourth filmmaker to take on an Avengers project after Joss Whedon and the Russo Brothers.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is currently part of Marvel’s Phase 6 and is dated for May 2025, with Avengers: Secret Wars slated for November 2025. It’s unclear who’s writing The Kang Dynasty but the project already has its villain in Jonathan Majors, who made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the Disney Plus series Loki. Kang is also the main antagonist of 2023’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
