After the controversy with Jonathan Majors, at Marvel they are evaluating the situation, but they can easily change Kang for another character.
Recently, actor Jonathan Majors was arrested after an altercation with his partner. For now, that issue has not been resolved in court, but he has already started to lose some jobs. While Marvel Studios hasn’t reacted, but there are some rumors that he could be replaced as Kang, actor Damson Idris (Snowfall, Swarm) is in fact being talked about as a replacement.
But… what if he wasn’t replaced as Kang and they chose another character within Marvel as the big villain?
For now, we know that the UCM had made a big bet on Kang, that’s why a variant of his was the villain of the Loki series, in addition, we have seen him in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023) and he will repeat in the second season of the asgardian god of mischief that will be seen on Disney Plus. But mostly, he was going to torment the heroes in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (2025).
However, it must be remembered that Marvel does not mind changing projects and many times they have canceled movies or series.
Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) could be her replacement.

The Loki variant is a brutal character who is very familiar with the multiverse, so he could easily become the new threat. This is what Matisaro from reddit proposes.
If Johnathan Majors goes down, as that seems increasingly likely to be the case, then I suggest that rather than recast Kang, Marvel should recast the role he would have played in having Sylvie learn the truth of why He Who Remains. (He Who Remains) established everything.”
“So the conflict turns into Loki trying to save Sylvie from the future she gave herself to protect everyone from the end of the multiverse that Kang was causing.”
“His first move may be to eliminate Kang at the source, perhaps he alters time so he’s never born, and that sets up a whole new problem that the various movies have to solve.”
