When Kevin Feige revealed the Phase 5 and 6 projects for the Marvel Cinematic Universe during SDCC 2022, it’s safe to say the level of excitement was through the roof. Finally, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars announcement blew it out of the park. Theories started pouring out left, right, and center with each film and show that got announced. And the way things looked, each theory was more elaborate, detailed, and outrageous than the last.

Two Avengers movies conclude Marvel's Multiverse Saga
Marvel Phase 5 & 6 were announced at SDCC 2022, culminating with 2 Avengers movie

Dedicated Marvel fans and comic book enthusiasts who have knowledge of the storylines that were part of the new phase came forward with their own speculations. So we thought why not wrack our brains a little, and think of some of the possibilities that could be part of the upcoming MCU storyline? Especially given Jonathan Majors’ Kang will be gracing the cinemas soon with Quantamania.

The Marvel Multiverse Madness

As we know, this is Marvel’s Multiverse Saga. After the Infinity Saga which ended with Infinity War, and the third Spider-Man movie showing its aftermath, fans were eager to find where Marvel will take us next. Then January of 2021 brought WandaVision to our Disney+ screens, and that’s where the next saga began.

Now we are at the end of Phase 4, awaiting Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to conclude it, and still, the fans are not very satisfied with how little of multiverse we got to experience in this Multiverse Saga so far. But fear not, with Phase 5 beginning with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantamania, which is set to release in February of 2023, the multiversal aspect is not too far behind.

Even though M.O.D.O.K. is rumored to play a part in Quantamania, we for sure know Kang the Conqueror will be a part of the movie. Just like Thanos did during the entirety of the Infinity Saga, appearing in one way or another by the end of each movie, I think it’s safe to say Marvel will do the same now with Kang for their future projects. Given he is the main villain for this Multiverse Saga, unless Marvel has a secret (wars) weapon stashed somewhere, we will be seeing a lot of Jonathan Majors in the upcoming projects.

There is also a rumor that Doctor Doom will be making an appearance by the end of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. How much of it is mere speculation, and how much of truth is retained can only be seen after the movie is released. But given Marvel has already announced the Fantastic Four movie, we can assume that Doom will show up on our screens sooner or later.

How Kang the Conqueror Affects the Avengers

Kang the Conqueror is one of the many variants that will show up throughout the next projects in the MCU. Even in Quantamania, the variant that will show up might not be the one we are expecting to see. Given the character is from the future, and has traveled through time to wreak havoc on the Avengers, we are hoping not just time travel, but also to travel to other universes.


We had some experience with it during Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness; even got to experience an incursion while we were at it, but the future seems much more promising. While Marvel has not yet released any teasers for Quantamania, they did show one during the SDCC. And in it, one of the first things Kang says to Scott Lang when they face off is “You’re an Avenger? Have I killed you before?” This shows that Kang has already traveled through time and killed quite a few Avengers by then.

It is a big possibility that the Avengers will be fighting a variant or another of Kang through space and time. This brings in another theory that Avengers of the past, present, and future will join the fight to defeat their next big foe.

This means there is a possibility that the past Avengers might show up for a minute or two during the last two movies of the Saga. And with the way Marvel is setting up the young heroes, it is not far-fetched to assume that a team of Young Avengers will also be part of this fight – whether in the present or the future. And of course, the current timeline with the heroes of now will band together to fight Kang in the present.

How multiversal aspects are added to the mix is still to be seen, with a lot of fans hoping for a Secret Wars Battleworld storyline. Maybe the end of The Kang Dynasty will bring about a single universe, which will be made up of parts from the multiverse. And then Secret Wars can happen in the Battleworld through time as different groups of Avengers fight against Kang. Whether or not it happens can only be seen as the MCU timeline progresses with Phases 5 and 6.


Currently, Marvel Studios is gearing up for the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on 11 November 2022; which will conclude Phase 4 of the MCU.
