What will it be called?

The new film was initially titled Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Earlier last year, Marvel dropped actor Jonathan Majors after he was found guilty of assault and harassment.

But that will no longer be the case as the new report from The Hollywood Reporter shares the film will be getting a new title to remove the name of the character altogether.

When does production begin?

The production is set to begin next year and the film will eye a release on May 1, 2026.

Who will direct?

The new Deadline report also adds that director Shawn Levy is being considered as the top choice, and is “having early conversations” with Marvel to direct the next Avengers film. He is awaiting the release of Deadpool & Wolverine on July 26. Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are all set to mark their debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the film.

Who is writing the screenplay?

Last year in November, this Deadline report announced that it was Loki creator Michael Waldron who had been hired to write the screenplay for the next Avengers film.
