Avengers: Secret Wars is set to be Kevin Feige’s biggest challenge yet in bringing together the history of Marvel Studios and the MCU. According to an insider, Hugh Jackman wants in as Wolverine, and in a big way too.
Hugh Jackman may be the biggest Marvel star outside of the MCU, and perhaps even including it, thanks to his time as Wolverine. The actor is set to take back up the claws one final time for Deadpool 3, but it may not truly be the end. A new rumor by insider DanielRPK suggests Jackman wants to play a large role in Avengers: Secret Wars to cap off the Multiverse Saga at Marvel Studios.
Given how important Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine was to the Marvel brand before the MCU, it wouldn’t be a shock to see him take a leading role in the film. However, given Avengers: Secret Wars has so much ground to cover with Marvel Studios’ past, its unclear how big a role he’ll truly get. Though fans can only hope Jackman gets as much screentime as he wants, and then some!
The future of the Avengers franchise
Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is the first movie in a two-part finale to Marvel’s Multiverse Saga. It will be followed by Avengers: Secret Wars, rounding out Marvel Studios’ Phase 6. Both films are scheduled to arrive in theaters in 2025.
Destin Daniel Cretton is set to direct Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, with Jeff Loveness attached to write. Michael Waldron will write Avengers: Secret Wars, though there is no director attached to the project.
With the expansive Multiverse Saga and its star-studded cast at the helm, Marvel fans are undoubtedly on edge for the next two Avengers movies. Regardless of how fans interpret Robert Downey Jr.’s comments, one thing is certain: Marvel Studios has a grand vision in mind.
