Marvel Studios is setting itself up to have the biggest blockbuster of all time with Avengers: Secret Wars. A new rumor suggests that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man will take leading roles in the conclusion to the MCU’s Multiverse Saga.
One of the biggest rumors leading up to Avengers: Secret Wars is that the TVA will assemble a team of multiversal Avengers from across the MCU. It seems as though Marvel Studios will be using that as an opportunity to bring back some fan-favorite faces, with multiple Hollywood insiders speaking out over the last few days to tease the starring roles of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man in the upcoming project.
It shouldn’t come as a shock to fans that Tobey Maguire and Hugh Jackman would be taking leading roles in Avengers: Secret Wars. The two actors were the biggest faces of Marvel Studios before Iron Man. Both have also already found their home in the MCU, with Maguire appearing as Spider-Man in No Way Home and Jackman set to star in Deadpool 3.
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.
