‘Yeah no sh*t Sherlock’: Avengers 5 Writer Gets Trolled for Saying Kang is Different from Thanos Since He’s a Human Being

'Yeah no sh*t Sherlock': Avengers 5 Writer Gets Trolled for Saying Kang is Different from Thanos Since He's a Human Being

With just weeks remaining before the start of a new chapter in MCU, fans can’t wait to witness the beginning of Marvel’s next big villain Kang the conqueror. After the underwhelming phase 4, fans believe that Jonathan Majors’ villain will shape MCU’s tide in the correct direction.

Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania will mark the beginning of the multiverse saga next month, which will be directly connected to the eventual showdown in  Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. But fans have been left a little confused by Avengers 5 writer’s recent comments on the new villain and how it will surpass the bar set by Thanos.

Avengers 5 writer assures that Kang will be much different from Thanos

The MCU is on its way to kickstart its ambitious phase 5 with the release of Ant-man And The Wasp: Quantumania next month. Just before the release of the movie, an Avengers 5 writer provided some new insight into Kang’s character and its key difference from Thanos.

Even though the MCU struggled for a long time to create memorable villains, it all changed with the inclusion of the Mad Titan Thanos in the Infinity Saga. But the Avengers 5 writer Jeff Loveness expressed that the upcoming villain Kang will be much more compassionate and different from the mad titan because of him being a human. He further stated,

“To me, it’s all about the humanity. Obviously, Thanos is a great, iconic villain, but he’s also a big purple CGI guy. He’s an alien from outer space. The thing I really wanted to lean into is that Kang is a human being.”

The writer also emphasized that the character’s humanity and vulnerability will be explored much more in the upcoming movies. He is also confident that Jonathan Majors’ villain will be able to match the villainous standards of Josh Brolin’s Thanos on an exponential level.

Fans call out Avengers 5 writer for his comments on Thanos and Kang The Conqueror

Many fans already believe that Jonathan Major will deliver an exceptional performance as Kang The Conqueror and will justify his role as the biggest threat to our heroes yet. But some fans have been a little perplexed by the writer’s recent comment about the new villain being different from Thanos because he is a human.

Of course, fans understand that Kang is a human and Thanos is a big alien from Titan, but calling them different villains just because of their origins didn’t sit right with some fans. And the writer calling Thanos a big purple CGI villain with no human side rubbed some fans the wrong way.

Fans argued that even though Thanos is a big purple CGI monstrosity on the outside, he still has emotions and fans can empathize with the reasons behind his actions even if they aren’t morally correct. Fans also sympathized with the Mad Titan when he had to sacrifice his daughter Gamora to progress toward his goal.

Although some fans have been bewildered by the director’s viewpoint on Thanos, following Kang’s more human side who was born on earth, can be an interesting concept. Fans also hope that Jonathan Majors’ upcoming villain will match the standards set by the Mad Titan.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will hit theatres on 2 May 2025.
