  • Despite being an Avengers villain, Kang first appeared as a Fantastic Four villain, therefore, Kang cannot be used for the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to his movie rights being owned by 20th Century Fox, but on March 20, 2019, Disney manages to buy all of 20th Century Fox's properties and they have the rights to use the character in future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
