Aside from minor quibbles like falling box office returns and growing apathy towards the whole shared universe enterprise, the biggest problem facing the MCU right now is the mystery of what to do with it. Jonathan Majors.
With the actor’s legal troubles threatening to drag on and on, there may soon come a time when Marvel is forced to recast him as Kang the Conqueror, which will change the entire shape of the Multiverse Saga. Unfortunately, the franchise has backed itself into a bit of a corner by establishing that every single Kang looks like Majors in the plural (see Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania‘ post-credits scene).
Clearly, then, there are only two options open to Marvel without breaking continuity: go younger or go older. That way the new actor could be playing Majors’ Kang, just at a different age, hence why they look different. A younger Kang is a great idea for the Young Avengers, but an older Kang is probably the way to go for the central saga. Especially if they had a mature actor to bring the necessary gravitas.
Luckily, the perfect compliment has fallen into Marvel’s lap. In a piece from Forbeswhich continues on DiversityThe recent claims that the studio is in serious trouble, the notion of Denzel Washington as “older and wiser” Kang, perhaps the most dangerous of them all. And it seems like it’s one that fans of the MCU as a whole can get behind, continuing the heated debates on the Marvel Studios subreddit.
An excellent actor in the role and “super reasonable” explanation of the remodeling? Win victory.
Unfortunately, some cannot see Washington Snr. be interested in the role.
Although maybe Marvel can find a clever way to get him to sign up…
Hey, failing Kang, there’s always Blue Marvel!
The excitement of Harrison Ford taking over General Ross i Captain America: Brave New World, after the death of William Hurt, proves that landing a Hollywood legend relieves the audience of the disadvantages of recasting, and that is clearly the way to go with Kang as well. The one and only Denzel would definitely kill him as the biggest threat to the plural, although he’s still the Kang we deserve but not the one we’ll get now.
