If the above is true, it lends more credibility to the new rumor shared by the insider. My time to shine Hello, who has repeatedly proven to have inside information. In his new publication of X wrote this Avengers: Secret Wars This will be the end game for Marvel films before the MCU:
If Endgame marked the end of the beginning of the MCU with Iron Man, then Secret Wars is the end of the Marvel franchises before Iron Man and the MCU.
Before the MCU began in 2008, several Marvel films made history, such as Spider-Man – 89% (2002) by Sam Raimi, which was a huge success and had two sequels in 2004 and 2007. The X-Men trilogy – Fox’s 81% began in 2000 and continued with two sequels in 2003 and 2006. We also had Daredevil: The Man Without Fear – 44% (2003) and Electra – 10% (2005), which was not as well received. These strips varied in quality and cohesion, as they were not brought together into a single narrative.
As for Secret Wars, it’s been rumored that Ryan Coogler could be on the shortlist to direct it, but that hasn’t been confirmed. The plot is likely based on the 2015 comic book event of the same name, which saw the collapse of the Marvel multiverse due to a series of incursions. A cosmic entity takes advantage of this collapse to create a fighting world where Earth’s heroes are forced to fight various villains. In this context, Kang the Conqueror, central villain of the MCU, will play an important role, especially since Secret Wars will follow the film. The Kang Dynasty with one year interval.
The film was originally scheduled for November 2025, but a shake-up in Marvel’s schedule delayed it by several months. Kevin Feige, Marvel’s chief creative officer, noted that the need for regular Avengers films has diminished in part due to more Marvel projects being developed.
