Loki and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness writer Michael Waldron has now been tabbed by Marvel Studios to write both parts of their Multiverse Saga finale. According to Deadline, Waldron–who was already working on Avengers: Secret Wars–will assume writing duties on Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
The news comes shortly after director Destin Daniel Cretton departed Avengers: The Kang Dynasty which set off rumors that the studio was looking to set a single creative team for the Multiverse Saga’s two Avengers films. Jeff Loveness, who wrote Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, was the original writer on The Kang Dynasty but left the project some time ago.
As the writer of both films, Waldron now essentially becomes the “Markus and McFeely” of the Multiverse Saga. Loki and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness set the course for the saga much like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, written by Markus and McFeely, did for the Infinity Saga in working with Joe and Anthony Russo. It remains to be seen if Waldron will similarly reteam with Sam Raimi for the next Avengers films.
