Sam Raimi brought the Multiverse Saga to the forefront of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Now it seems he’s in talks to bring it to a close with Avengers: Secret Wars.
Between Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, Sam Raimi is certainly one of the most accomplished comic book movie directors of all time. According to a new rumor by MyTimeToShineHello, Marvel is eyeing Raimi to close out the MCU’s Multiverse Saga by directing Avengers: Secret Wars.
Sam Raimi is certainly an interesting choice to direct what will likely be one of the most expensive movies of all time with Avengers: Secret Wars given he made his name working on horror movies with a shoestring budget. However, despite all the problems people have with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, most can agree the visuals were some of the best in the MCU. Perhaps, if given a good enough script, Raimi can end the Multiverse Saga with a true bang.
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.
