Omg yes, this is exactly what I was hoping for.”

He also said that he would love to see Ryan Coogler for the project.

Matt Shakman added to that by saying:

“I also really want to see Herron & Shakman announced for more projects too!”

Shang-Chi’s leading actor Simu Liu also joined in on this hype. In all caps, Simu Liu wrote without being able to hold onto the excitement:


“Three years ago at SDCC 2019 Destin and I sat backstage at Hall H watching some of the most famous people on Earth take the stage. We looked at each other like ‘damn, is this really happening to us right now?’ IT’S F***ING HAPPENING BROTHER!”

Jullian Hilliard might be the first one to hype about Destin Daniel Cretton but he won’t be the last. The members of Marvel Studios always show their support to anyone who comes new to their world.

Jullian Hillard’s Tweets bring out some great names for Secret Wars. The director of Black Panther’s name has come up for the Secret Wars project. The other names brought forward were Matt Shakman and Kate Herron. As they have already shown their attraction towards multiversal storytelling in their own Disney+ shows, they might as well get a chance at MCU.

For now, there are no other special announcements.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will release in theaters on May 2, 2025.
