Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, the first of two new Avengers movies on the MCU horizon, will be led by Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, according to a new rumor.
In Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Marvel fans were formally introduced to the franchise’s newest bad guy on the big screen: Kang, played by the inimitable Jonathan Majors.
After the scattershot flood of content in Phase Four, Phase Five is primed to chart a more cohesive course through the Multiverse Saga, with all roads heading towards The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars.
Given the events of Endgame, a few of Earth’s mightiest heroes aren’t as likely to appear – but Tom Holland is rumored to not only return as Spider-Man, but lead the first movie.

According to MyTimeToShineHello and Ember, two reputable Marvel leakers, Holland’s new Spider-Man deal includes leading the next Avengers movie, The Kang Dynasty.
“I guess Sony is playing nice rn cuz yeah, Tom is the lead… [Daniel] Destin Cretton’s favorite superhero is Spider-Man. He’s directing Kang Dynasty,” Ember wrote, while MyTimeToShineHello tweeted: “Tom Holland the lead in Kang Dynasty LET’S GOOO.”
This also comes amid rumors of Holland signing a “huge secret” deal with Disney and Marvel to reprise his role as the wall-crawler, including Spider-Man 4 – which will reportedly arrive before Secret Wars.
