Huge MCU star ‘signed on to lead Avengers The Kang Dynasty and more’
This weekend, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania hit theaters, introducing Marvel fans to the franchise’s newest Thanos-tier villain, Kang the Conqueror. The time-traveling baddie played by Jonathan Majors has many variants that will become the main threat in 2025’s Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Ant-Man 3 screenwriter Jeff Loveness, a Rick and Morty alumnus, is writing Avengers 5. And now a new leak claims which MCU megastar will lead the superhero team, with Iron Man and the original Captain America out of the picture.
According to reliable leaker MyTimeToShineHello, Spider-Man star Tom Holland has signed a “big new deal IN SECRET” and his Peter Parker will lead Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Avengers 5 is set to be the first part of the epic conclusion to the MCU’s Multiverse saga, with Avengers Secret Wars following in 2026, much like Endgame after Infinity War.
Secret Wars is the title of a famous Marvel Comics run in which universes collided and multiple variants of the same superheroes existed in the same space. With this in mind, we’d be very surprised if Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield don’t return, especially after the monumental success of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which grossed over $1.9 billion at the box office.
And if that wasn’t enough, the scoop also claims that Holland’s Spider-Man 4 is on the way.
MyTimeToShineHello: “Spider-Man 4 will be out before Secret Wars.” That would be a release date of around 2025 or 2026 during Marvel Phase 6.
There have been rumors that Holland will be signing on for another Spidey trilogy, once he gets himself, MJ, and Ned off to college. Although let’s not forget that the MCU has forgotten who Peter is following the events of No Way Home.
Whatever the case, Sony could also introduce a live-action Miles Morales, the black Spider-Man, who Peter could train to succeed him in the MCU from Spider-Man 7 onwards.
Certainly studio producer Amy Pascal intends to work on multiple projects with Holland.

Speaking previously with Fandango, Pascal said: “We’re getting ready to do the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three movies, and now we’re going to move on to the next three.” This isn’t the last of our MCU movies. Yes, Marvel and Sony are going to stay together as partners.”
And Holland told GQ of the release of No Way Home: “I could do Spider-Man 4, 5 and 6, finish when I’m 32 and never do another one. I’m not sure what I want to do.”
