While phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was leaving more doubts than certainties, in relation to the meaning of the story, Kevin Feig announced a good part of the future at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con. Three phases, dozens of productions and characters grouped in the Multiverse Saga. the one that will end with Avengers: Secret Warsat the end of 2025.
Avengers: Secret Wars It will be the sixth Avengers film, followed Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, which will be released just a few months before. The Saga of the Multiverse It will conclude with a couple of events in which superheroes and, it is suspected, villains will abound that condition a good part of the story; especially, Kang the Conqueror. This character, played by Jonathan Majorsis an individual capable of traveling through the different time lines.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universea variant of Kang, the Conqueror Forand presented in Loki under the name “He Who Remains”. This being announced that there were other versions of him. Those that, perhaps, are seen during phase 5 and part of phase 6, or even in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. For Avengers: Secret Wars, much of what happens in the previous production will have an influence. The superheroes will find themselves in a more confusing multiverse than seen so far in the adaptations.
synopsis of Avengers: Secret Wars
The synopsis of the film is not yet revealed. The production will premiere at the end of 2025. There are three years between the present moment and the launch of the production. Therefore, many of the superheroes that were presented before may not be here, have a different role, or have already been displaced by others. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in a transition, while it supports The Avengers, it is arming The Young Avengers, the Fantastic 4 and, perhaps, the X-Men will be added.
In this context, based on the comic that gives the film its name, these superheroes will find themselves in a reality made up of fragments of the Multiverse. The events of phase 4, 5 and 6 are likely to lead to a scenario where the timelines have collapsed and, at the time of Avengers: Secret Wars, of these spaces only pieces remain. It should be remembered that this film will be based on Secret Warsthe comic developed by Jonathan Hickmann.
Avengers: Secret Wars will premiere on November 7, 2025as announced by Kevin Feige at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. It will occur after the presentation of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Both productions will serve to close Phase 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

During Comic-Con 2022, the presentation poster for the title of Avengers: Secret Wars. Is this:
Secret Warsin the comics
This is one of the best known stories in Marvel comics. Its reputation began in 1984, when the first issue was published. Production ran until 1985, with a sequel. With this story comes a paradox: it was well received from a commercial perspective, but critically, it was less than successful.
The proposal presented in 1984 was published under the title Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars. This name would be simplified to Secret Wars. The history of these stories tells that Beyondera cosmic entity, kidnaps many of the heroes and villains to face them in battle world. The sequel to this story has a similar premise, only the clashes take place on Earth. However, this will not be the story on which it will be based Avengers: Secret Wars.
Secret WarsJonathan Hickman’s play
This comic was published in 2015. In the story, the relationship between the different time lines is already open. To the point that there are trips between one and the other, as part of various plans to save part of the population. In this way, the crossing of superheroes between the different realities also occurs. What happen? The multiverse collapsed due to different incursions that were fragmenting it. In that context, there is only battle world like that world of conflict and clash between villains and superheroes.
In this sense, one of the post-credit scenes of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe the idea of ”incursion”. What is a raid? It occurs when two parallel realities lose, collide with each other, separating from the cosmic balance. To cut these episodes it is necessary that one of the two realities cease to exist. One of the aspects raised by the Jonathan Hickman comic is, as previously mentioned, that there will be a series of incursions that will lead to the fracture of the time lines and the multiverse.
All theories and interpretations
Taking into account that Marvel Studios is inspired by comics to adapt part of that universe, it is intuited that the story of Avengers: Secret Wars It will be related to the work of Jonathan Hickman. Added to this is the background set out in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessin relation to the incursions, and the events of Lokiin which you can see how different timelines begin to get out of control.
So, it is valid to suspect that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will see how the multiverse collapses, in line with what Jonathan Hickman raised. In that sense, Kang the Conqueror will be one of the key characters. It is suspected that The Fantastic Four, scheduled to be released a year before Avengers: Secret Warswill be key. That film could serve to introduce Doctor Doom, another of the classic villains in the comics and who could influence later events.
Among fantastic four Y Avengers: Secret Wars, there are at least six previous productions that still have no title. That, without referring to the entire Phase 5 that will also present characters and events that, directly or indirectly, will converge in the production that will close the entire Saga of the Multiverse.
Expectation with the movie
After infinitywars Y end game, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will once again have a couple of “event movies” in which a wide variety of superheroes and, perhaps, villains will converge. In animated adaptations, the presence of multiple characters is common but within the narrative presented in theaters this is developing. Therefore, the greater the number of characters and dramatic lines, the greater the expectation in relation to who could appear at the end of the Multiverse Saga, represented in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty Y Avengers: Secret Wars.
Undoubtedly, the multiverse factor will be the main axis. Judging by the clues that the comic of Secret Wars, the relationship between the different timelines will become more and more obvious, either because one needs the help of the other, through their superheroes, or because of the incursions that affect the natural flow of time. In this context, developed through phases 4, 5 and 6, the threat will be presented that will lead The Avengers to meet again to try to save something more than Earth.
Where is the movie set?
Avengers: Secret Wars will be presented after the events of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Speculating in relation to characters or clear plot lines, beyond what is proposed from the comic, is risky; even more so when you consider that there are several Phase 6 titles that are unknown.
It is intuited that all these productions, as happened with infinitywars Y end game, will present different characters who must deal with multiple threats. Currently, there is a superhero branch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that is fighting space battles; another, dealing with conflicts on earth and, within this, an aspect that will deal with different street circumstances, with Daredevil as the main representative, in another village, the presence of the Thunderbolts. The fun is to see how, in the coming years, all these causes become a river.
What movies should you see before Avengers: Secret Wars?
It is recommended to follow all the development of Phases 4, 5 and 6.
