Avengers: Kang Dynasty found its director in Simu Liu with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ director Destin Daniel Cretton. His first project in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a huge success, no doubt other projects could be safe in his hands as well and some cast members like Simu Liu and Brie Larson think so too.
Simu Liu and Cretton became friends on the set of their film and since then the actor has supported all the achievements of the director. His latest project, while far from properly developed, already has an enthusiastic supporter like Liu, who isn’t shy about making buzz with the director.

Simu Liu defeats Destiny Daniel Cretton for Avengers 5
Simu Liu’s latest interview with Comicbook.com got him clapping Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director to sit in the director’s chair during Avengers: Kang Dynasty. On the one hand, he hinted that he could very well be involved in the film, on the other hand, he shared his excitement and happiness to see his dear friend, Destin Daniel Cretton taking charge of such a big project. .
“I’m really looking forward to seeing what he does on this even grander scale of The Avengers because I think it’s maybe easy to get lost in the spectacle of what these movies can be, the vastness and grandeur of it, but if you can maintain the humanity and the human stories, I think that’s what will make a movie memorable and special, and I think Destin got that.
He explained how the film would be far more special than fans might expect due to its ability to show the humanity in the characters while still maintaining the scale of the film itself.

Simu Liu talked about grounding the movie, much like Johnathan Majors
His recent comments about the film overlap with things Johnathan Majors once said, explaining how the story of Avengers: Kang Dynasty would be very valid. A world that deals with aliens and magic, superheroes and time travel, resurrections and highly advanced science, it might be strange to think that such a massive movie could be anything but a leap in the above the float; although it looks like the story could be much larger and more human than expected.
“We are dealing with myths. What is a Kang? What is a movie? What is an MCU movie? What does that mean? What does it look like? These are the questions we ask, but it all works because it is grounded. And really, really, really got into the given circumstances, what’s going on between these people and what we can shed some light on for ourselves as a species.
While dealing with a whole new team of superheroes, he would also be dealing with a much bigger villain than the Mad Titan. So seeing all of these characters learn to work as a team to defeat the greatest threat the multiverse has ever seen would be an interesting sight to see.
