According to the plot, following the events of Endgame, there is a multiverse in which Thanos triumphs and rules over various timelines and realities. The intriguing plotline of this other world has captured fans’ attention and set the stage for an exciting new chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The addition of King Thanos fits in well with the recurring themes of multiverse intrusions and the never-ending battle to preserve the holy chronology.

King Thanos’s partnership with Kang the Conqueror—a character originally played by Jonathan Majors—is one intriguing aspect of this rumored storyline. However, there are rumors that Colman Domingo would play Kang the Conqueror in Avengers 5 and Avengers: Secret Wars due to unanticipated events surrounding Majors’ firing from Marvel Studios.
A little unsure about these rumors, Domingo—who won praise for his parts in Rustin and If Beale Street Could Talk—has addressed them while on the promotional tour for The Colour Purple. Even with the enthusiastic response from his followers, Domingo says he’s not sure if the rumors are true, saying, “I don’t know, I’m constantly looking at what I have to do right now… I’m aware that there have been discussions, but I’m not sure how much of them are accurate.”
The plot takes on new dimensions with the possible cooperation of King Thanos and Kang the Conqueror, who pose a serious threat to the Avengers. There are even rumors that a band of “incursion Avengers” under the command of King Thanos may have been formed, complete with doppelgängers of well-known figures like Iron Man and Mordo. This creative turn promises a new take on well-known characters and deepens the story’s layers of meaning.
Undoubtedly, the idea that King Thanos will be the primary foe in Avengers 5 is a fascinating one for the MCU. It promises a variety of risky tasks in addition to ensuring that the plot of the Avengers will keep developing in fascinating and surprising ways. The excitement for Avengers 5 and King Thanos’s comeback is building as fans anxiously await formal news from Marvel Studios. These events promise to be monumental in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.
