The MCU has a lineup of projects slated for release in 2024, 2025, and beyond. While several movies are currently in development and affected by strikes, none are as highly anticipated as ‘Avengers 5’ and ‘Avengers: Secret Wars.’ These films are expected to uphold the MCU’s tradition of grand crossovers.

Similar to ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame,’ these two movies will be released a year apart. However, unlike the previous films, they will not be filmed consecutively. Instead, they will be developed by separate teams of writers and directors.

Although details about both movies are scarce, reliable insider Jeff Sneider reports that ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ will be an extensive 5-hour film divided into two parts. This information was shared in his InSneider newsletter.

Secret Wars is basically shaping up to be “a giant five-hour movie with a year-long intermission.

Kang the Conqueror was initially poised to succeed Thanos as the primary antagonist of the Multiverse Saga. However, following the release of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,’ it became evident that the audience did not respond favorably to the new villain. Jonathan Majors, who portrayed Kang and his variants, also encountered legal issues, leaving his MCU status uncertain for over half a year. Disney opted not to hastily terminate him, wary of repeating past controversies.

Just over four months ago, Majors was ultimately dismissed following a conviction for third-degree assault. Presumably, the studio is now grappling with this development and potentially seeking a new antagonist. The latest rumor surrounding the movie suggests that the Beyonder will ultimately emerge as the primary villain of the storyline.

Sam Raimi was mentioned as a potential director for the film, although he has since revealed that the studio has not approached him yet, but he is certainly interested.

The movie is a sequel to several past Avengers films, such as ‘The Avengers,’ ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ and ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.’ It is the fortieth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, wrapping up Phase Six and The Multiverse Saga, with a scheduled release date of May 7, 2027.
