Kang the Conqueror was slated to be Marvel’s ultimate protagonist after Thanos. Not only was he supposed to be the ‘center of everything’ but also had a whole movie surrounding him called Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, which has now been renamed to just Avengers 5.

In such a scenario, where the actor and the character had a major role in one of the world’s biggest movie franchises, it would be a good idea to either replace or tone down the character a notch, instead of erasing it whole. One Marvel star, Ginger Gonzaga, thinks Colman Domingo would be the best actor to be the new Kang.
