His interventions were clumsy, without spark and really contributed little to the story. For the following episodes his participation was drastically reduced, however, he had an important role in Palpatine’s rise to power.

On Loki, Kang is played by Jonathan Majors, at least a much kinder and warmer version of the character, in the future it will not be like that. With this on the table, Marvel Studios might consider casting a black actor for the role of Reed Richards in their future Fantastic 4 movie. These characters have long been awaited by fans of the MCU and Kevin Feige he has every intention of pleasing his followers. Who will be the ones who end up installed in each role?
For a long time, the Fantastic Four were licensed on the big screen by Fox, a studio that managed to produce several major hits for these superheroes. While Reed Richards and company had their last attempt in 2015 with a disastrous movie, Marvel Studios is already working on their plans to introduce them to the MCU.
Phase 4 of the MCU has already begun and the future is loaded with big releases from Marvel Studios, films that involve well-known superheroes and others who will be integrated into the franchise for the first time. Will they manage to get a place of honor in the great adventure that has made sense of the genre for the last decade? The Fantastic Four will have some complications adjusting, considering the fact that a lot has already happened in the MCU. On the other hand, some actors have already embodied these characters and it will be very difficult to remove their faces from the collective memory.
