Star Wars Star Becomes The MCU’s New Kang In Avengers 5 Fan Poster

A potential Kang the Conqueror recast in the MCU has been depicted in new fan art, picturing a popular Star Wars star as the Multiverse Saga villain. Kang the Conqueror was introduced to the MCU in the wake of Thanos’ Avengers: Endgame defeat, billed as the next primary antagonist for the MCU’s Multiverse Saga. However, following Jonathan Majors arrest in March 2023, Kang the Conqueror’s future in the MCU was thrown into jeopardy. On December 18, 2023, Jonathan Majors was found guilty of reckless assault and harassment, leading to Marvel Studios dropping the actor from future MCU projects, and leaving the next steps for Kang the Conqueror even more uncertain.

While there has been speculation of Marvel Studios moving away from the Kang the Conqueror narrative in the MCU, there are hopes that the villain will simply be recast, allowing him to continue for the remainder of the Multiverse Saga. One popular fan-cast for the new Kang the Conqueror has been Star Wars actor John Boyega, who’s been depicted as Kang in new art shared by AGT Design.

The art replaces Majors in a promotional image for 2023’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania with British actor and producer Boyega. Despite being a popular choice for Kang the Conqueror’s recast, Boyega has remained consistent in his response to MCU casting rumors.

John Boyega rose to prominence as gang leader Moses in 2011’s Attack the Block, and has gone on to appear in projects including Detroit, Small Axe, The Woman King and the Star Wars franchise. In the latter, Boyega portrayed former Stormtrooper Finn from The Force Awakens through The Rise of Skywalker. These roles have made Boyega a popular fan-cast for a number of MCU roles, including those in Black Panther, Blade and now as Kang the Conqueror. However, the actor has been steadfast in his refusal to join the MCU, most notably in a 2022 interview with Men’s Health, in which he noted an MCU role wasn’t in his vision.

Responding to an MCU casting question on a November 2023 X post showing him and Captain America: Brave New World star Anthony Mackie together, Boyega posted a GIF of Shrek’s Donkey, denying wanting to be cast as the MCU’s new Kang the Conqueror. John Boyega’s tumultuous history with Disney and Lucasfilm is well known, as the actor has previously been outspoken against the studios with criticisms regarding their handling of Star Wars’ first Black lead. Boyega’s comments and history with Disney suggests that Marvel Studios will have to keep hunting if a recast is the direction the studio is planning for the Multiverse Saga’s Kang the Conqueror.
