5 storylines Marvel can use for replacing Jonathan Majors in the MCU

Now that Jonathan Majors has been found guilty, Marvel has fired the actor. Can the character of Kang still be used without the original actor? Turns out, yes, in fact, Kang might be the easiest character in MCU history to recast.

2. Doom is upset no one considers Doom

This one kills me. They've been trying to figure out a way to introduce the Fantastic Four for a while now and this is perfect. Sure, Kang's whole thing is time travel but NO ONE has caused Time Travel and Multiversal chaos quite like Victor Von Doom.

For real, ol' Vickie Doo-dooms has created entire worlds, casually strolled the multiverse, and even planted himself a God. Not A god, THE God. And he did such a good job that the heroes weren't like "How do we stop him" they were like, "Should we let him"?

I think having everyone going into this thinking it's still Kang only to find a series of dead Kangs everywhere in a room where Doom stands triumphant would be a, dare I say, Fantastic lead-in for the four.

Not only is Doctor Doom a far more interesting character than Kang but this would also create a situation where you could FULLY introduce Doom by having him merge his life in with the main MCU universe. This would be wildly beneficial to the MCU because it would explain why there is suddenly a country called Latveria. Having the Fantastic Four just suddenly show up having chased Vic through the dimensional bleed would be a great way of throwing the four in our universe without having to showcase that incredibly white-privileged heavy origin story where Reed just puts his friends on a ship and takes it into space without permission.

It not only solves the Kang problem but also the Fantastic Four problem in one fell swoop.
