Directed by the Russo brothers and distributed by Walt Disney Studio Motion Pictures, Avengers: Endgame was the perhaps biggest MCU hit ever, with the Avengers fighting against the supervillain Thanos in one of the most epic battles of all time.
The 2019 film left an incredibly strong imprint on Marvel fans all over the world, especially with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man sacrificing himself to save the world. And now, Kevin Feige is reportedly planning on topping Endgame with the upcoming MCU film, Avengers: Secret Wars.
Kevin Feige is rumored to have big plans for Secret Wars
With the incessant amount of fame and critical acclamation that both Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame received, people definitely have high expectations to see how the MCU storyline will be weaved into the Multiverse Saga through Secret Wars. And Marvel already seems to be concocting something grand for the upcoming film.
According to a rumor that Heavy Spoilers recently spilled, Kevin Feige has his eyes set on making Secret Wars surpass even Avengers: Endgame, by introducing some of the greatest superhero characters of all time through the most gripping plot ever.
The cherry on the cake? The president of Marvel Studios is reportedly even planning on outdoing the iconic “Avengers, Assemble” scene from Endgame by possibly bringing superheroes from multiple other universes beyond just the significant characters from MCU. He is rumored to be drafting the plan for the recreation of the portal scene from the 2019 movie, only of a much more glorious capacity, with characters from various other franchises like those of X-Men and Fantastic Four starring in the Multiverse.
Surely, a scene of that magnitude would undoubtedly be legendary like nothing else.
Will the superheroes from X-Men and Fantastic Four feature in Secret Wars?
Although no confirmation with regard to these conjectures has been provided yet, the prospect of bringing superheroes from different franchises is definitely a solid one, especially if Feige wants Secret Wars to be anything like Endgame let alone outdo it.
Before Secret Wars though, the Avengers are set to reconvene for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty which is scheduled to release in 2025. Even before that, Shawn Levy’s Deadpool 3 is already bringing back FoxVerse’s Wade Wilson (played by Ryan Reynolds) along with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.
There are also rumors swirling about the original Fantastic Four squad of 2005 appearing in the 2023 film. Besides that, Marvel is also said to be bringing back Professor X, Agent Mobius, and Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men. So there is naturally going to be an array of things that will have changed till Secret Wars.
On top of that, the Marvel fandom is already speculating about the return of Iron Man in Secret Wars along with other such surprising appearances. And with Feige apparently cooking something unbelievable and insane for the movie, a lot of these rumors might just end up turning out to be true. But right now, all we can do is hope for the best.
Avengers: Secret Wars is set to release on May 1, 2026.
