AVENGERS Movies Will Likely Still Focus On Kang As Extent Of Doom's FANTASTIC FOUR Screentime Is Revealed AVENGERS Movies Will Likely Still Focus On Kang As Extent Of Doom's FANTASTIC FOUR Screentime Is Revealed

According to one trusted scooper, the next Avengers movies will keep the spotlight on Kang and his Variants, mostly because Doctor Doom is only expected to appear for a few seconds in Fantastic Four...

Much has been said about Marvel Studios' plans for the Multiverse Saga, and we've heard on multiple occasions that Kang the Conqueror's time as the MCU's new big bad is winding down. 

That's been blamed on the villain supposedly being an underwhelming successor to Thanos. However, it seems many people have forgotten about the Mad Titan only making blink-and-you'd-miss-them cameos in The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Guardians of the Galaxy before he finally made his mark in Avengers: Infinity War

Thus far, we've seen much more from Kang thanks to Loki and Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, and outside of Jonathan Majors' ongoing legal issues, there's no obvious need to ditch him (especially when that can be solved with a recast). 

Rumours continue to persist that Doctor Doom will usurp Kang, though The Cosmic Circus' Alex Perez says otherwise. 

He believes Kang will remain the Multiverse Saga's main antagonist, but suggests the time-traveller will be sidelined until Phase 6 in order to give Marvel Studios the time they need to figure out where to go next. Not making Kang a recurring threat acorss multiple MCU projects (why wasn't Rama-Tut in Moon Knight again?) still feels like a major missed opportunity.

Perez goes on to add that Doom is only expected to appear in Fantastic Four for a matter of seconds, a claim which lines up with reports of him only showing up briefly in a post-credits scene. As he correctly points out, going from that to him being the Multiverse Saga's lead villain makes little sense, even though Kang and Victor Von Doom are connected in the comics. 

Ultimately, only Marvel Studios knows what it has planned, and a lot could change between now and the next two Avengers movies. Something we can be sure of, though, is that The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars are bound to be pushed further down the release calendar. 

Stay tuned for updates.

Damn Josh i know this upsets you. you’ve been rooting for Doom in every article.

hopefully all those “persisting rumors” (lol) come true.
NickScryer - 11/28/2023, 9:21 AM
Revealed or rumoured?

Simonsonrules - 11/28/2023, 9:27 AM
@NickScryer - These words mean the same thing for Josh, namely money.
bobevanz - 11/28/2023, 10:48 AM
@NickScryer - you don't know the famous scooper AlexFromCC? It's okay. NOBODY DOES. Lol they see us call out every baseless rumor. So @JoshWilding doubles down, with a new nobody every week. He's the worst
Origame - 11/28/2023, 9:22 AM
First of all, rumor.

Second of all, it doesn't even make sense logically. Thanos had only seconds of screentime before being the literal main villain of infinity war and endgame. Those few seconds in fantastic four could be the equivalent of this.

NickScryer - 11/28/2023, 9:28 AM
@Origame - agreed. Thanos was only hinted throughout Infinity Saga and they managed to make him the best MCU villain in Avengers 3.

Kang on the other hand, was shown multiple times only to be outsmarted and beaten. It's gonna be impossible to make him seem as big a threat as Thanos was. And actor's problems certailny don't help.
Origame - 11/28/2023, 9:33 AM
@NickScryer - yeah exactly. You can't really make him an intimidating Thanos level villain when he loses to ant man.

They were smart with Thanos. Giving us hints at his power, like just giving us a henchman of his as the main villain of a film like guardians or an infinity stone as this overwhelming power that makes the actual villain op. Then Thanos shows up with 2 stones to start off with and uses none of them to easily kill the first main avengers villain really drives home how much of a threat he is.

@Origame - 3 Kangs defeated so far:

1 to ants

2 to Lokis

The rest were acting silly in the Ant Man post credit scene.

If they wanted Kang to be intimidating, so him doing some conquering. Show him winning.
OleBobbyTiger - 11/28/2023, 10:57 AM
@Origame - Actually agree with you for once. haha.

Besides... the first half of Infinity War was the heroes asking "Who is this guy again" about Thanos. So that's not a bad thing, if the story is written well.
OleBobbyTiger - 11/28/2023, 11:03 AM
@mountainman - I always thought it would be better if several lead up movies featured different heroes fighting solo and losing to a single Kang. Then have the Avengers team up to finally defeat him together in Secret Wars, ending with Loki showing up at the end to reveal the truth of the multiverse and that there are thousands more Kangs coming. It could actually make Kang a credible threat, and give some gravitas to a stadium full of Kang clones, versus just making them look like a bunch of raving lunatics like they did in that post-credit scene.

Doom will always be the superior villain to any Marvel villain, he needs to be done right.

Have him play piano while we watch the tragedy of his origin in the MCU:

garu - 11/28/2023, 9:27 AM
@garu - @DrReedRichards I have a theory that Doctor Doom tries to go back in time to save his mother only to have Reed Richards stop him there, always in a cycle, because Doom needs to "exist" to save the multiverse. Hence the origin of his deep hatred for Richards.


idk just a theory
tmp3 - 11/28/2023, 9:28 AM
The extent of the screen time of a character for a movie that hasn’t even been written yet? Huh??
marvel72 - 11/28/2023, 10:51 AM
@tmp3 - They've just asked Loki how much screen time Doctor Doom has because Loki is at the end of time.
Matchesz - 11/28/2023, 9:30 AM
Doom will be revealed in the last 10 mins while a majority is given to some new side character that’s bi who was invented for the movie
Scarilian - 11/28/2023, 10:09 AM
@Matchesz -
It'll be a female Doctor Doom.
