Jonathan Majors was fired by Marvel Studios after he was found guilty of assault charges
The buzz around the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel Studios intensified recently after Jonathan Majors was found guilty by the New York court on one count of intentional assault in the third degree and aggravated harassment in the second degree. The studio quickly severed ties with him, and he will no longer play Kang The Conqueror in the MCU. However, what happens to Kang, because even if Majors is fired, the character still survives in the MCU. Well, it seems like the studio has found an answer.
About pushing Kang out of MCU
In the last few days, the Marvel fandom has been abuzz with speculation about what the studio is planning to do with Kang. There are several rumors doing the rounds. One suggests that they will introduce a completely new villain and forget Kang. Another suggests they will continue with Kang until the end of the Multiverse Saga. There is also a rumor that the studio has scrapped "The Kang Dynasty" and is simply calling the fifth Avengers movie "Avengers 5."
The New Update
Amid all of that is the new rumor that Marvel Studios has found a way to remove Jonathan Majors from the MCU in a Naruto-style exit. Yes, you read that right. The studio is supposedly pushing Jonathan Majors' Kang out in Naruto style. According to the Comic Book Movie, the idea is to pull a Kaguya with Kang. To give you some perspective, Kaguya is a character in Naruto who eventually became the big bad villain. Madara, another character, was initially introduced as a serious threat and the big bad. One day, Kaguya was suddenly introduced, and she killed Madara unceremoniously, proving that he was never the big bad, and it was always Kaguya who was the one true villain.
So, Marvel Studios is supposedly treating Kang as Madara. Reports claim that they are planning to introduce The Beyonder as a replacement for Kang. In this case, The Beyonder becomes Kaguya. The initial plan, as per reports, was to bring Kang The Conqueror from "Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania" back as The Beyonder. However, with Michael Waldron now rewriting both Avengers 5 and Avengers: Secret Wars, the plan seems to have changed.
One must also consider a recent post by Cryptic4KQual, which claims, "They won't [explicitly] present him as Beyonder Kang until the aftermath of the 616 collapse when he will then go on to establish Battleworld." In this case, it will be interesting to see how the studio manages to move away from Jonathan Majors' Kang and proceed. Stay tuned to OTTplay for more.
