Marvel Studios to reportedly conclude Multiverse Saga featuring Kang the Conqueror

  • Kang the Conqueror is still expected to be the main villain in the MCU’s Multiverse Saga, even after the firing of actor Jonathan Majors.
  • Other possible villains include a Kang variant played by a different actor, Dr. Doom, or Apocalypse.
  • Phase 6 could possibly see the Avengers, Fantastic Four, and X-Men teaming up against a powerful adversary from Marvel’s vast library of comics.

According to sources, despite the removal of actor Jonathan Majors, Kang the Conqueror will still be the primary antagonist in the MCU’s Multiverse Saga. However, potential alternative villains have been rumored, such as a Kang variant portrayed by a different actor, Dr. Doom, or Apocalypse. These characters are speculated to be introduced as foes for the Avengers, Fantastic Four, and X-Men in Phase 6 of the MCU.

Entertainment website The Cosmic Circus states that Marvel’s intentions with Kang the Conqueror are to “sweep it under the rug,” focusing on other storylines while developing Kang and the Multiverse again behind the scenes. Sources say that there have been discussions about introducing other villains to fill the void left by Kang the Conqueror and his variants in the upcoming phases. The Multiverse Saga is still expected to feature a Kang variant as its ultimate villain in the end.

When it comes to rumors about Kang’s involvement despite the absence of Majors, skepticism should be exercised as The Cosmic Circus did not reveal its sources, and the information has not been verified by any official sources. Regardless, the Multiverse Saga will continue and eventually focus on an antagonist, be it Kang or someone else.

A Kang variant played by a different actor could still work as the main antagonist for the end of the Multiverse Saga, as seen by the multiple portrayals of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Spider-Man: No Way Home. However, other villains such as Dr. Doom or Apocalypse could also provide a fitting adversary for the Antagonists. Dr. Doom, who appeared as a villain in the prior Fantastic Four films, could be reintroduced since Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has announced a new Fantastic Four movie and Avengers: Secret Wars in Phase 6. With Dr. Doom’s involvement in the comic series Secret Wars, his super strength, and mastery of black magic, he could be a suitable enemy for the Avengers.

In addition, the arrival of the X-Men in the MCU raises the possibility of Apocalypse, one of their most formidable foes, emerging as a primary antagonist during Phase 6. Oscar Isaac’s portrayal of Apocalypse (En Sabah Nur) in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) left much of the character’s potential untapped. Introducing Apocalypse as a powerful threat in Phase 6 could be an effective way to kick off the X-Men’s MCU era.

There are numerous possibilities for how the MCU’s Phase 6 may unfold, potentially including the Avengers, Fantastic Four, and X-Men joining forces to defeat a powerful villain like En Sabah Nur or even a combination of Kang the Conqueror, Dr. Doom, and Apocalypse. Regardless of the chosen antagonist, Feige’s craftiness should ensure the success of Phase 6. If not, the MCU might find itself facing an unexpected competitor – the DCU.
