Avengers 5 rumor says Ant-Man 3’s Jeff Loveness is no longer writing Kang Dynasty, Jonathan Majors’ villain status for MCU Phase 6 to be addressed in Loki season 2

Marvel Studios could be searching for a replacement to write Avengers 5 as a new rumor claims Ant-Man 3‘s writer Jeff Loveness, who was also tapped to pen the Kang Dynasty script is “off” the project. While several writers have been putting their pens down in support of the WGA strike – the insider reporting the story claims the recent development is not related to the ongoing protest in Hollywood.

Marvel Studios may have taken up on fans’ advice to stop involving Rick and Morty writers for the next Avengers film, Kang Dynasty. With the Marvel Studios already facing a hurdle due to Jonathan Majors‘ controversy – the MCU ensemble film may have also lost its head writer, according to the info from Above the Line’s report Jeff Sneider.

The decision came before the ongoing writers’ protest, “he fell off prior to the strike” stated Senider. Still, readers are urged to take this news with a grain of salt until official confirmation from Marvel Studios or reported by the trades.

It’s unknown at the moment if the response to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantuamania is the main factor behind the possible exit. Nonetheless, if true, it will be interesting if Avengers: Kang Dynasty director Destin Daniel Cretton took up the writing responsibility too. In fact, the filmmaker co-wrote the screenplay for the first Marvel film he helmed, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings with Dave Callaham and Andrew Lanham.

MCU rumor also claims Marvel Studios’ plan for Avengers 5 villain lies in Loki season 2

The complex nature of writing a multiverse arc for Phase 6’s Avengers 5 has been a concern for the Marvel fandom since the failure to attract their attention with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Jeff Loveness, for his part, did not downplay the difficulty of following up with the Infinity War saga.

Earlier in April, the screenwriter noted the burden of making a blockbuster Marvel film with Avengers 5, “I think, like obviously, it’s almost comedic how hard this challenge is. It’s like, ‘Oh no, you have to follow up ‘Endgame’ and ‘Infinity War,’ both made about two billion dollars, and everyone loves it.’”

Marvel Studios may also have to make a difficult decision over Jonathan Majors being the big bad for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty though recently Cosmic Circus’ writer Alex P, a scooper indicated the answer lies in Loki season 2. However, the MCU will not back away from positioning Kang as the main villain.

Majors’ alleged domestic abuse incident will be decided by the court of law, which has raised speculations that Marvel would find a replacement to play Kang. Nonetheless, the multiverse conquering villain will appear in the upcoming segment of Disney Plus’ Loki.

Speaking of which, Marvel has apparently also ordered not to include any mention of Majors and his involvement as Kang in promo articles on Disney platforms related to the release of Quantuamnia of Disney Plus. Moreover, the studio has also specified to only reference the main villain as “the new threat that frightens everyone” rather than as his role as Kang the Conqueror.

Avengers 5 will arrive in theaters on May 2, 2025.
