While he won’t be the sole creator behind the MCU’s version of Kang, it seems safe to say that Jeff Loveness will be the one most associated with the character. After introducing Kang the Conqueror and the Council of Kangs in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, Loveness will bring the full might of everything Kang to life in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty which he’s currently writing. The Kang Dynasty, which is currently slated for a 2025 release, will be the first Avengers movie since 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, which means it will be one of the most anticipated movies in the history of film.
For Loveness, the anticipation and excitement that fans feel is something he’s very familiar with and, as such, something he has taken to heart while writing the film. “I don’t take it lightly that I am writing the biggest movie in the world,” said Loveness of The Kang Dynasty. The opportunity to write “the biggest movie in the world” is something that caused Loveness to reminisce about his own experience with “big” movies from his childhood.
I am from a very small town; I didn’t even have a movie theater in my town so we would have to drive an hour away to go watch movies. And I love small movies, Tar is the best movie of the year; Triangle of Sadness is so funny and innovative, but when I was a kid, I went to see Lord of the Rings right when school ended. I didn’t know what it was. Our movie theater was playing that. It was a BIG movie and it changed my life.
And so now it is Loveness‘ turn to put together what will be the big movie of 2025 and what will ultimately be compared to prior Avengers films Infinity War and Endgame in terms of quality and ability to impact pop culture. Loveness says he’s up to the task and adds that he has a secret weapon in achieving the goal of creating an “American epic” that people will remember: star Jonathan Majors.
I have this opportunity to write a vast, American epic–I’ll use American in a general term–but a big, American movie. I don’t take it lightly and I want to make it this big, sweeping and exciting, funny movie and I think we have the best actor in the world as the most complicated villain in comic books. So I can’t say too much, but we’re really swinging for the fences and I can’t wait for you to see what Jonathan does.Jeff Loveness
Loveness and fans will have to wait a bit, however, as Avengers: The Kang Dynasty isn’t slated to release until May 2nd, 2025.
