After it was confirmed that Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will not get an Avengers movie, Marvel boss Kevin Feige recently announced that Phase 6 will get two as compensation.
In 2025, a few months apart, we will see the films Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars to appear. All eyes are on Secret Warsbut Marvel Studios has long been building towards Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
Avengers: The Kang Dynasty
It is striking that Marvel Studios after Loki, a television series that ended with the death of He Who Remains, a Variant of Kang the Conquerer, then did little for Kang and his possible arrival as chief villain. It’s only now that we’re really sure he’s the new Thanos.
But what you may not have known is that Marvel Studios is at the end of the series hawkeye a very sneaky reference to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty stopped. In fact, the title of the film has already been revealed!
In the series hawkeye Laura Barton has a SHIELD watch. We see the number 19 on it, indicating that she was Agent 19 of SHIELD, also known as Mockingbird. But the watch also had a striking tag, ‘Lot Number 268 – Avengers Compound’.
As is often the case with these types of projects, this is not a random number. It references Avengers #268, a June 1986 issue that tells the story The Kang Dynasty launched. In it, the Avengers consisted of Namor the Sub-Mariner, Monica Rambeau’s Captain Marvel, Steve Rogers’s Captain America, Black Knight, Janet Van Dyne’s Wasp, and Hercules. Six of those characters will all be set up in the MCU by the end of this year.
