Avengers The Kang Dynasty: Release date, cast, plot & more

Jonathan Majors as KangDisney+

Here’s everything we know about Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, the first of two new Avengers movies in the MCU, including its release date, whether there’s a trailer, cast, plot, and other details.

So far, we’ve had four Avengers movies: The Avengers (also known as Avengers Assemble in the UK), Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

The latter two films were a climactic double-bill capping off the Infinity Saga, with Thanos snapping half of all life in the universe to dust, and eventually fading to ash himself.

That was just one saga, and two new Avengers movies are already on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s horizon. So, here’s what we know about Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, from its release date to trailers, cast, plot, and other details.

Avengers The Kang Dynasty release date: When is it coming out?

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is due for release on May 2, 2025.

It is the third of four confirmed movies in the MCU’s Phase Six so far, coming after Deadpool 3 and Fantastic Four, and before Avengers: Secret Wars on November 7, 2025. That’s right, Marvel is going down the Matrix Reloaded/Revolutions route.

Avengers The Kang Dynasty trailer: Is there a trailer?

No, there isn’t a trailer for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty at the time of writing.

As the movie has yet to enter production, we’ll be waiting a while for any footage. So for now, enjoy these clips of the titular Kang below:

Avengers The Kang Dynasty cast: Who’s in it?

Given the movie’s title, we can expect Jonathan Majors to star as Kang the Conqueror. Majors debuted in Loki as He Who Remains, and will appear as Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

In an interview with Comicbook.com on November 10, Shang-Chi actor Simu Liu seemed to confirm that his character will appear in The Kang Dynasty. After discussing how happy he was to see Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton get the job directing the next Avengers movie, Liu said “I’m so excited to get to work for him again.”

Otherwise, official cast details have yet to be shared, but there are some sensible predictions to be made. As it’s an Avengers movie, it’s safe to expect any of the following characters:

  • Anthony Mackie as Captain America
  • Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier/White Wolf
  • Tom Holland as Spider-Man
  • Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk
  • Chris Hemsworth as Thor
  • Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye
  • Don Cheadle as War Machine
  • Brie Larson as Captain Marvel
  • Paul Rudd as Ant-Man
  • Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange
  • Benedict Wong as Wong
  • Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff
  • Tom Hiddleston as Loki
  • Letitia Wright as Shuri
  • Danai Gurira as Okoye
  • Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
  • Evangeline Lilly as The Wasp
  • Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie
  • Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova

There’s a few question marks. James Gunn said Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be “the last time people will see this team of Guardians”, so it’s unclear if they will return.

There’s also the worrying anticipation of Marvel finding a way to resurrect Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. as Steve Rogers and Tony Stark.

Finally, while it’s likely, it remains to be seen whether the new Disney+ cast will graduate to the big-screen Avengers arena, including Haillee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel, Oscar Isaac as Moon Knight, Tatiana Maslany as She-Hulk, and eventually, Charlie Cox as Daredevil.

Avengers The Kang Dynasty plot: What is it about?

While there aren’t any official plot details at the time of writing, the movie may adapt elements of the Kang Dynasty comics event, which made for a 16-part Marvel storyline between 2001 and 2002.

The omnibus’ official synopsis reads: “Kang the Conqueror has been a foe of the Avengers for decades! Now, witness his ultimate triumph, as he brings all of his vast cross-time spanning legions to bear to conquer the Earth once and for all!

“Can Earth’s Mightiest Heroes hold back the colossal forces arrayed against them or will they face defeat and subjugation beneath the boot of the Conqueror?”

We’ll update this article upon further announcements.
