Russo Brothers Say They Want To Do “Secret Wars” Next


Despite not being the first true cinematic universe the MCU created one of the biggest crossovers in history. Avengers: Endgame in 2019 was the end of an 11 year saga in storytelling for film. Bringing together all of their top stars and characters for a big finale to that era of the franchise.

Avengers Parts 3 and 4 were helmed by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, who were also the ones behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 2014 and Captain America: Civil War in 2016. The due played a key part in bringing this era to a mostly satisfying conclusion. But now they have revealed when they want to do next for the MCU.

During an interview with Deadline promoting their upcoming for The Gray Man the duo expressed their interest in brining the Secret Wars story to the big screen. Joe stated:

Our love for Marvel is based on the books that we’ve read as kids and the books that we fell in love with. The one series that you know we adored growing up was Secret Wars. It’s incredibly ambitious. It would be bigger than Infinity War and Endgame. But it’s a massive undertaking, and, uh, you know, those two movies were very hard to make. So trying to imagine making another two movies even bigger than those two. We’re going to have to sleep on it.

The Secret Wars storyline was one of Marvel’s first big “Event Books” that lasted from 1984 – 1985 for twelve issues. The story sees a being called The Beyond collect both heroes and villains from all across the Marvel Universe and pitting them against each other. The possibilities of seeing various heroes from the MCU, both past and present would be quite the reunion and quite the spectacle.

What do you think? Should Avengers 5 and 6 follow the Secret Wars storyline?
