Avengers: Secret Wars is set to be the next big Avengers movie after Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and has been one of the most anticipated movies since its announcement at the 2022 SDCC. The movie would not be seen until 2025 however, it looks like it has found itself a writer.

Michael Waldron is set to write the script of Avengers: Secret Wars which is not what some fans were expecting and are now not looking forward to. The writer also drafted the script for Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. The movie had received an array of mixed reviews for its writing and because of that, fans are not exactly excited by this announcement. On the same hand, many have stepped forward to support him as well because of his work in Loki.

Michael Waldron Worked On Doctor Strange 2, Loki, And Now Secret Wars

Michael Waldron’s work with Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness was viewed to be lackluster and had been said to shift focus from the main character itself. Parallel to that, his work with Loki had drawn focus to the amazing storyline as the show had been Marvel’s record-breaking series.

The news of Waldron being the writer for Avengers: Secret Wars creates a lot of controversies as on one hand, fans who see his writing in Doctor Strange 2 find the idea not that good; while fans who view it from the perspective of Loki are ecstatic to see the new project come to life.

Doctor Strange 2’s writing was viewed to be sloppy and bland while Loki had outshone itself and had become the top favorite series of many in an instant. This contrast can shift either way the nearer Avengers: Secret Wars’ release would approach.

Avengers: Secret Wars’ News Pushes The Fans Into Two Sides

While on one hand, Marvel fans cannot be happier to see Michael Waldron take Secret Wars under his wing, they are also becoming skeptical as to how bad the script could actually go. The movie is a large-scale project, being only the second Avengers movie ever since the MCU Phase 3 came to an end.

Numerous fans seem to find this news as a massive loss for Marvel due to the importance and anticipation of the movie, much like the Doctor Strange sequel. Supporters too rose since the announcement and have defended the writer with their love and admiration.

This battle between the two opinions would not end until the movie is released in 2025. Whether the movie would have smashing success or find itself getting criticized extensively would depend a lot on the personal opinions of the fans and film critics as well.
