“They’re aiming to get as many heavy hitters as they can”: Hugh Jackman, Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire Reportedly in Talks for Avengers 6

Featured Video

The theory so far about Marvel’s Phase 6 finale is that Avengers 6 will be the most ambitious one yet. Set to be called Avengers: Secret Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe if it is to be anything like the Secret Wars comic issue, will be unlike anything the audience has seen before. As has already been promised by Marvel execs and online theorists, the film will be big enough to put even Endgame to shame.

With the interwoven threads of Phases 5 and 6 now weeks away from being unraveled, theories have come up regarding what will eventually go into the production of the grand climactic finale.

Avengers 6 Theories Hint the Accumulation of Heavy Hitters

For now, not much can be said about the plot or even the tangential direction in which it is supposed to end. Secret Wars, according to the Marvel Comic issues was a multiversal event that witnessed past and future Avengers — some hauled in from other timelines, a few handpicked from their realities moments before their supposed deaths — and all of them then placed within Battleworld and made to fight in a grand war.

With the multiverse now at the center of Marvel’s ongoing narrative, Avengers 6, too plans to be an event unlike any other. So it would only make sense for Feige to pull all strings to get Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, Foxverse, and Marvel’s pre-Iron Man era characters on the board and play them like chess pieces. And these may include some of the biggest names from each of the universes mentioned above, especially Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Hugh Jackman.

Running Theories About Avengers: Secret Wars Plot

A recent video from Heavy Spoilers indicates that the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania would be the precedent for all the events to come. Kang the Conqueror would reveal his intentions, He Who Remains (aka Nathaniel Richards) would fight against his evil variant, and the Sacred Timeline’s Earth-616 would be Kang’s magnum opus that he’d save for last.

In this fight against the most formidable foe, the Spider-Men who had already once come together could unite again for the fate of the universe. The get-together has already been set in motion as reports indicate that the infamous trio is already set to band together in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

Moreover, Wolverine easter eggs have been dropped more times than most within the Marvel universe, most recently in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law‘s second episode. Granted that his fate has already been signed by Logan and his character is set to die in 2029, there are a handful of years between then and MCU’s chronological year where Hugh Jackman’s presence could be exploited to the best of effects by Marvel Studios. In the Foxverse, Wolverine has presented himself as a worthy leader and played a key role in winning most battles, and the presence of the indomitable character will be one that will certainly be one of the most celebrated.

Avengers 6 is set to premiere on May 1, 2026.
