‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’ Gets a ‘Ten Rings’ Director

Hot off the heels of winning San Diego Comic Con, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty has found its director! Who is it? Keep reading to find out.

Officially revealed by the Hollywood Reporter, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton is taking over the reins of the Avengers films from predecessors, the Russo Brothers.

This is not only a huge step forward for the MCU, given how terrific we though Shang-Chi was, but also how well received it was by most mainstream moviegoers overall. The film went on to become the second highest grossing domestic release last year, behind only Spider-Man: No Way Home, beating Venom: Let There Be Carnage (in North America only, given it did not get a China release date). Furthermore, it promotes greater diversity behind the camera, as Cretton will be the first Asian director to helm an actual Avengers film!

Will he also be directing Avengers: Secret Wars? That’s another question for another time entirely. However, given the two movies debut within months of each other, it’s safe to say they will likely shoot back to back as a single story, ala Infinity War and Endgame.
