Marvel fans have been waiting for the latest installment in the ‘Avengers’ saga since the epic conclusion of 2019’s ‘Endgame.’ The series has been the most popular in the MCU, and with good reason. The star-studded superhero ensemble franchise will once again return in 2025.
There are some other movies set to release in the Marvel universe before the next two Avengers films. However, fans are starving for more action from Marvel’s most popular super team. Now that the next two Avengers movies have been announced, the next step was finding the perfect director.
A report in The Hollywood Insider noted that Marvel has found their man. Destin Daniel Cretton will helm the upcoming Avengers project. He previously directed ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.’ He will now direct ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.’
Cretton has a deal with Marvel that was signed after Shang-Chi became a huge success. As part of the agreement, he is developing a live-action Wonder Man series. The director has some serious superhero bona fides.
A writing team for the new Avengers movies has not been announced. A roster of heroes hasn’t been named just yet. According to a previously released timeline, the fifth Avengers movie is slated to release in May of 2025.
Phase 4 of the MCU will wind down with November’s release of ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.’ In the meantime, Marvel has been building up a list of potential directors to head other movies in the franchise. As far as the fifth movie, Destin Daniel Cretton will be in charge when the Avengers assemble next.
