Although the MCU’s “Fantastic Four” film is set to be released just a few months before “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,” the famous family “probably” won’t be appearing in the Avengers film, according to screenwriter Jeff Loveness.
Loveness just wrote the debut of Kang in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and is writing “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.”
When asked by io9 about writing Kang again in a movie following several films that don’t exist yet, Loveness said:
“Yeah, it’s definitely a tricky thing. But much like when I took on this Ant-Man job, I can’t really focus on that outside stuff. I have just got to lay down the bones of a good story, hopefully, and find the characters that I want to tell [it]. And then it becomes a game of ping pong with the other people. Like whoever comes on and does Fantastic Four or Blade or—I’m probably not even using those characters, you know—but it all informs itself.”
“Fantastic Four” is scheduled for a February 14, 2025 release, while “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” will be in theaters on May 2, 2025.
The Fantastic Four and Kang have a big connection in the comics, so it’s surprising that they may not face off against the supervillain. But it may be the Fantastic Four will appear in “Avengers: Secret Wars,” which is slated for a May 1, 2026 release with a screenplay by Michael Waldron.
