Avengers: The Kang Dynasty has the potential to break the trend of boring fight locations in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) by offering visually stunning battlegrounds. The film, which will focus on Kang the Conqueror and his variants, as well as the exploration of the multiverse, opens up the opportunity for the final battle to take place anywhere and anytime across the MCU timeline. This provides an exciting and dynamic setting for the climactic battle.
Avengers 5 Shatters the Monotonous MCU
The movie’s introduction of Kang in Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania, along with the tease of Kang variants in Loki, suggests that Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will be one of the most ambitious Marvel films yet. Kang and his variants will likely battle over the multiverse, with Avengers 5 serving as the culmination of Kang’s arc and the arcs of his variants. This makes it the perfect opportunity to break away from the trend of boring fight locations that has plagued previous MCU crossover movies.
The first Avengers crossover in 2012 took place in New York City, a visually interesting and important location. However, subsequent Avengers movies and other MCU films have featured increasingly uninteresting locations for their climactic battles. From Sokovia to a grass field outside Wakanda to a cratered field, the trend has been towards more visually boring locations.
Avengers: The Kang Dynasty has the potential to deliver a visually interesting climax. Given the nature of the story and the clashing of realities that will likely occur, the final battle can take place anywhere and anytime across the MCU timeline. It would be out of place for a movie that culminates the MCU’s Multiverse Saga to have a basic and flat landscape as its setting.
While visually interesting locations require more time and money to design, they have been a missed element in earlier MCU movies. The larger Avengers crossovers, in particular, should bring back visually captivating battlegrounds. With a villain as dangerous and powerful as Kang the Conqueror and his variants, the upcoming Avengers movies have the opportunity to feature stunning locations worthy of the heroes assembling from different realities.
Avengers: The Kang Dynasty can break the trend of boring MCU battlegrounds and provide visually stunning locations for its climactic battles. Hopefully, it will mark the return of visually interesting settings in MCU crossovers.
