- Fan suggests Marvel should either recast Kang or write him out completely, acknowledging the potential backlash but arguing that the character’s storyline could have ended with Loki.
- Some fans believe that if Marvel hadn’t emphasized Kang’s importance, they wouldn’t have noticed or expected a long-term plot for the character, suggesting that the studio could simply stop mentioning Kang.
- While some fans are upset about the firing of Jonathan Majors as Kang, others believe that any actor is replaceable and that a potential replacement could still be embraced if faithful to the plot or MCU.
Avengers 5 fans have mixed opinions about how Marvel Studios should push through with Kang Dynasty after it dropped Jonathan Majors. However, one fan shared an idea of how the studio should handle the character, to which other Marvel fans agreed.
Majors debuted as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania, where he also played several of Kang’s alternate versions, like Rama-Tut, Immortus, Centurion, and Mister Gryphon. He also portrayed Kang variants named He Who Remains and Victor Timely in Loki. Marvel Studios has since built up the hype surrounding the character, with many anticipating the Avengers 5 movie. However, many wonder what will happen to the character after Marvel Studios fired Majors following his conviction of misdemeanor assault and harassment in a legal dispute with his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari. One fan suggested how Marvel should proceed with Kang’s storyline without Majors.

A Marvel fan took to Reddit and shared their take on Kang’s storyline without Majors. The fan suggested a simple solution to dealing with Kang’s presence in Marvel — the studio could either recast him or write him out completely. The netizen understood that it would take a lot of effort to rewrite the character and replace him with Doctor Doom. The easier option is to drop Kang entirely, but he acknowledges that some might disagree and argue that it’s a bad move to leave the character’s plot unresolved. However, the netizen pointed out that Kang’s storyline could have ended when Loki replaced him as He Who Remains. So, if Marvel Studios stops mentioning Kang, it will be fine, as the character has already been dealt with.
A number agreed with one saying they wouldn’t know how important Kang was had Marvel Studios not instilled it in their minds. A different user said that the MCU had abandoned several characters and storylines in the past, and the audience would not have even noticed or expected a long-term plot for Kang had they not announced Kang Dynasty in advance. However, several also disagreed, pointing out that Loki did not eradicate Kang; he was just holding the multiverse together. It was the TVA (Time Variance Authority) that was looking to prune the different variants of Kang, but his last sighting seemingly showed that he was outside the TVA and Loki’s scope.
It’s understandable how fans feel about Kang’s future after Marvel Studios dropped Majors. The latter portrayed the character so well that many couldn’t imagine another actor playing the villain. Some fans couldn’t hide how upset they were when Marvel Studios fired Majors. They believed he was the only person fit to play Kang the Conqueror in the MCU. However, any actor is replaceable, and if Marvel Studios plans to recast Kang, they could because fans would still support it if they were faithful to the plot or MCU. Rumored replacements include Colman Domingo, who looked as cool as Majors wearing Kang’s costume in one fan art.
It’s also true that Marvel Studios could let the issue cool down and stop mentioning Kang and reintroduce him later when the character is not tied to Majors anymore. In this way, the potential replacement will be given a chance to portray the character in his way, and fans, by then, will be ready to embrace the new Kang in a new light. For instance, James Spader was the first to portray Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron, where he scored the MTV Movie Award for Best Villain and the MTV Movie Award for Best Virtual Performance nominations for his role in the film. However, Marvel Studios recast Ultron in Avengers: Damage Control, paving the way for Ross Marquand to portray the character because Spader was unavailable. Marvel Studios can build and rebuild a character the way they want it. Hopefully, the studio already has a plan on how to handle Kang’s future.
