With all of the intense action in the Quantum Realm, Kang pushes Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang/Ant-Man to the very limit in Quantumania.
Jeff Loveness confirms some crucial deaths in The Kang Dynasty
After Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania fans were disappointed that everyone in the film survived. The fact that no one died as they faced the greatest villain in the MCU was anti-climactic for the movie and the franchise as Quantumania is supposed to build on Kang’s character. Fans took to Twitter complaining about how Marvel never kills any character. The good news is here, the writer of The Kang Dynasty confirms that there will be some major deaths in the next film.

“I think for these bloodthirsty fans, there’s a little movie called Avengers: Kang Dynasty, I think he’ll bring the heat,”
The Kang Dynasty writer Loveness suggested that the future Avengers film would have a gigantic death toll, further emphasizing Kang’s deadly skills. Loveness noted that MCU fans who are eager for more casualties would be happy with how The Kang Dynasty plays out. He also elaborated on how tough it is to write Marvel movies,
“I mean, certainly in these Marvel rooms and all that, you certainly game out all these stories and you pitch them out, you write them out, and you’re trying to land the best puzzle piece because there’s so many characters in the ensemble,”
“Certainly, you see what people are saying online. But on paper, and then just in your heart, as much as you can see that point about stranding Scott and Hope down there or whatever, at the end of the day, it is just repeating the same beat from the second movie.”
Writing for Marvel is no joke, you have to be well-versed with previous projects, multiple timelines, character arcs, and quirks. It does not end there, the writer is often caught between Fans firing shots at the movie and the franchise.

“We’re already thinking about it. It’s like, every movie’s battle and you bear the scars of making it and wanting to make it great.
