Even though a significant amount of time is still there for Avengers 5, the movie has already started to gain major hype among the audience. Slated to conclude the gigantic Multiverse Saga along with The Secret Wars, the movie is subjected to a wide range of crazy rumors and fan theories. Amidst all this, a fan theory posted by a prominent YouTube channel suggests that The Kang Dynasty is likely to bring back He Who Remains to the MCU.
He Who Remains was introduced as a variant of Kang the Conqueror in the Disney+ series Loki. The series along with the story arc of the Kang variant formed the foundation of the Multiverse Saga and gave us a glimpse of all the mind-bending things that are yet to come. Now the reports of him coming back to Avengers 5 point to a very interesting storyline for the movie.
‘He Who Remains’ is reported to be a pivotal character in Avengers 5
The Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is going to bring the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes face to face against the time-traveling tyrant, Kang the Conqueror. The Jonathan Majors character is going to succeed Thanos as the MCU’s next big baddie. According to various reports, Kang will be an integral character throughout the entire Multiverse Saga and we might get to watch numerous variants of him throughout this entire saga.
The very first proper introduction of Kang is going to be in the upcoming MCU flick Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. According to a prominent YouTube channel Heavy Spoilers, He Who Remains will be an important character in Avengers 5 as he will help the heroes to defeat the Warrior Kang. Watch the full video here:
As the theory states, The Kang Dynasty will mainly follow an Infinity War-Esque storyline and focus on Kang and his backstory and the chances are more than certain that the heroes might be defeated. Following that, He Who Remains will play a pivotal role in Secret Wars and rope in several different characters from several other universes to defeat Kang and conclude one of the iconic events in pop culture.
Now although this sounds very interesting, the video openly stated that it is too early to presume anything to be completely confirmed. The story is still yet to go through a number of significant changes. On the other hand, Heavy Spoilers also mentioned how the storyline was also mentioned in the Loki series.
Kang is going to be a complicated affair to deal with
As the reports suggest, the conflicts in the Multiverse Saga will not only be difficult for our heroes but also for Kang himself. This whole conflict is also going to present numerous versions of Kang who are likely to go against each other. And He Who Remains is the one coming to resolve everything and start another sacred uniform timeline. A similar storyline is also hinted at in the Loki series itself.
“You either take over and my life’s work continues or you plunge a blade in my chest and an infinite amount of me start another Multiversal war. And I just end up right back here anyways. Reincarnation, baby.”
This statement by He Who Remains revealed that killing him will trigger a wild battle and numerous versions of him will start appearing even worse than him. And thanks to Sylvie, the events also played out in a similar direction and now we have a colossal threat staring at the face of the heroes.
Kang will be seen for the first time in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania releasing on February 17, 2023, while Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will be released on May 2, 2025. Avengers: Secret Wars will be released on May 1, 2026.
