One of the key aspects of The Kang Dynasty is how it will set the ball for Secret Wars to spike over the net one year later.
Coming off the shocking cliffhanger of Avengers: Infinity War, where big bad Thanos snapped half the universe out of existence, Marvel Studios will have to go down a different route for its Avengers 5 to 6 baton pass.
One way The Kang Dynasty could differentiate itself from the snap of Infinity War’s ending is by actually having the Avengers win this time.
Sure, there will have to be enough hanging thread to set up the sequel, but there is a chance Avengers 5 sees Earth’s Mightiest Heroes take down Jonathan Majors’ Kang (or, at least, they think they have).
Will Avengers 5 Be Bigger Than Endgame?
It may seem impossible, but Avengers 5 has the makings to be bigger than Avengers: Endgame.
While it will be a herculean task to reach the same level of box office success, the in-universe stakes will easily be bigger than Marvel Studios’ last two Avengers films.
The biggest reason that this could be bigger comes in the form of the film’s villain. Thanos proved to be a formidable foe for the Avengers, making every one of Marvel Studios’ heroes come together just to see the Mad Titan’s demise, but Jonathan Majors’ Kang is unlike anything this band of heroes has ever gone up against before.
This is a villain with seemingly endless variation across the Multiverse, all of which seem hell-bent on conquering all realities. So instead of a single blood-thirsty tyrant, now, Marvel’s super-powered team will have to go up against infinite Variants of one, likely across multiple planes of reality.
