AVENGERS 5 & SECRET WARS: Rumored Updates On Marvel Studios' Plans For Doctor Doom And Kang

Another MCU rumor here, this time focusing on what Marvel Studios may have planned for two iconic villains as we head towards the next Avengers movies...

Marvel Studios had huge plans for Kang the Conqueror prior to actor Jonathan Majors being dropped from the role after being convicted of assault, and while the character is still expected to feature in the MCU in some capacity going forward, we still don't know exactly what Kevin Feige and co. have in store for the powerful villain.

Though Avengers 5 is no longer titled "Avengers: The Kang Dynasty," previous reports have claimed that the character will still appear in a greatly reduced role.

Back in January, Deadline's Justin Kroll responded to the rumor that Coleman Domingo was being eyed to replace Majors.

"See a lot 'who will play Kang next' and 'here is a top contender for Kang' comments this week, and all I’ll say is this, don’t expect that news anytime soon," Kroll wrote in an X post. "There will be plenty of Marvel breaks in coming weeks on various fronts but don’t hold your breath on that one."

"This isn’t dismissing any rumor this week about potential contenders for the role," he added. "I don’t have any intel on those being true or not true it’s just letting you know, if I were betting what gets announced first, Kang or the field, I’d put money on the field."

The Cosmic Circus' Alex Perez has now weighed in, and he's heard that Marvel intends "to focus on other Multiversal villains before dealing with Kang again." Which bad guys he's referring to is unclear, but he did update with the following post.

He may simply be referring to Cassandra Nova here, but we have heard that Deadpool and Wolverine will feature quite a few surprises, and possibly an even bigger threat than Emma Corrin's Professor X Variant.

Another villain that's reportedly set to play a major role in the MCU going forward is Doctor Doom, but it might be quite a while before he makes a significant impact.

Doom is not expected to appear in The Fantastic Four (unless it's in a post-credits scene), and while he could factor into Avengers 5 and Secret Wars, he may not be the main antagonist.

Perez has "heard they’re treating Doom similar to how they’ve handled Loki in the Infinity Saga."

Loki was introduced as a villain in the first Thor movie before gradually redeeming himself and meeting his end at the hand of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. Tom Hiddleston then reprised the role as a God of Mischief from another timeline for his solo Disney+ series.

That's a very specific arc, of course, so we'd say this is more likely to mean that Doom will be used sparingly at first.

@MuadDib - It's Sunday, generally there's phuck all going on.
StSteven - 6/9/2024, 4:44 PM
@HashTagSwagg - Um, hey, so I'm married with 2 little kids so there's not a whole lot of phucking going on in my house this Sunday. Any tips on where I can find some, if one were so inclined (just asking, ya know, for a friend).
HashTagSwagg - 6/9/2024, 5:05 PM
@StSteven - Phuck knows
Batmangina - 6/9/2024, 4:12 PM
This just in: Doom and Kang are going to kiss.
Malatrova15 - 6/9/2024, 4:12 PM
@Batmangina - oh please be true
Batmangina - 6/9/2024, 4:14 PM
@Malatrova15 - Yes. They will be gay for each other in a pocket universe and Doom will become evil because Jonathan Kang beats his ass for ordering Doordash instead of UberEats.
marvel72 - 6/9/2024, 4:16 PM
@Batmangina - And it'll be a scene that they can easily cut out for middle east and China release.
Batmangina - 6/9/2024, 4:20 PM
@marvel72 - and mask them up for the posters. I love how the soy cucks on here never seem to mention the hypocrisy of the DEI brands...
Malatrova15 - 6/9/2024, 4:25 PM
@Batmangina - oh ok yes..pls continue ...dont stop
marvel72 - 6/9/2024, 4:27 PM
@Batmangina - They have the nerve to call us bigots, racists and incels.

Its all about money, either losing it in the west because of forcing it on us or removing shit so it can get released in other countries.
Batmangina - 6/9/2024, 4:35 PM
@Malatrova15 - Multi-Company Multi-Verse Crossover - Gay Black Doctor WHO will have his sonic buttplug malfunction and cause the reTARDIS to jump to a Galaxy Far, Far Away where he will meet a Gay Black Female Jedi and they will go on a quest to the Magic Space Thread Lesbians where they will be regenerated into nonbinary intersex genderfluid male AND female Gay Time Lord Jedi Siths having peenors, vagines and each being a triple breasted whore, thus combining ALL the things from ALL the universes.

They will jump to a pocket universe together and [frick] themselves for eternity.

Roll credits...

@marvel72 - I'm just glad human rights paragons like Red Chinese and Muslim fundamentalists exist to show how much we suck over here in the West.
Malatrova15 - 6/9/2024, 5:42 PM
@Batmangina - thanks pal...that was a fat load
Batmangina - 6/9/2024, 6:12 PM
@Malatrova15 - I'm just getting started - make sure you stock up on extra lotion and tissues

@Batmangina - you forgot the part about disney calling everyone who doesn't like it homophobic
Batmangina - 6/9/2024, 6:51 PM
@Feralwookiee - You are now eligible for story credit on the sequel. BRILLIANT!!
Batmangina - 6/9/2024, 6:53 PM
@Origame - That's the PRE-Marketing plan. It's worked like a charm on the last few shows AND The Marvels.

It's an undefeated strategy. I still feel the sting of guilt and shame for wrong thinking The Marvels was a pussified piece of pandering shit and all the betas on this site were sissy porn addicts.
Origame - 6/9/2024, 7:00 PM
@Batmangina - not to mention the acolyte where kennedy did the brilliant strategy of NOT calling the fanbase sexist (but pretty much calling them sexist).
CaptainFlapjaks - 6/9/2024, 7:54 PM
@Batmangina - they are going to a kiss concert? Yo that will be wild.
CaptainFlapjaks - 6/9/2024, 7:58 PM
@marvel72 - no they will film an alternate scene where he gives him a hersheys kiss. Sharing food is not wrong in china last time i checked
Batmangina - 6/9/2024, 8:24 PM
@CaptainFlapjaks - That would be great - they could time travel to 1976 and see the HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD...KIIIISSSSSSSS!

Or, they could time travel to last year and see the OLDEST BAND IN THE WORLD...Kissssss 🤘👴

@Batmangina - *doom after seeing gene simmons' outfit

"I approve of this man's choice of style. I shall adopt this look for myself"
dagenspear - 6/10/2024, 5:40 AM
@Batmangina - They can't even get the characters who some want to be gay to kiss, what makes you think they're going to make them kiss?

It's 2024, few normal humans will care that you want to see 2 men kiss. Making up excuses to talk about doesn't hide it.
dagenspear - 6/10/2024, 5:41 AM
@Origame - Why are some of you and some of the SJWs so sensitive?
Origame - 6/10/2024, 6:19 AM
@dagenspear - yes, God forbid we don't like being called sexist. Especially by people trying to sell us a product.

Would you insult someone you're trying to sell something to? I can see you as a kid selling lemonade, "come get some lemonade, you incel sexist!"
Batmangina - 6/10/2024, 7:07 AM
@CaptainFlapjaks - TAKE MY MONEY!!!
Batmangina - 6/10/2024, 7:09 AM
@dagenspear - It's crucial for storytelling. Did you not see Gay Black Doctor WHO? They finally got it right.
dagenspear - 6/10/2024, 3:11 PM
@Batmangina - That one thing did it, so now what?
Malatrova15 - 6/9/2024, 4:12 PM
YES UES YES ...NOW cast Hubter Shafer and the Kang trifecta is in full efect
Feralwookiee - 6/9/2024, 5:49 PM
