After laying the groundwork for the MCU’s major multiversal event in Loki and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, writer Michael Waldron has signed on the write the script for Avengers: Secret Wars. Waldron joins writer Jeff Loveness, who will pen Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, as writers of the tandem of Avengers films set to debut in 2025.
First officially revealed at SDCC ’22, Avengers: Secret Wars will serve as the capstone to Marvel Studios Multiverse Saga when it hits theaters on November 7th, 2025. According to a trade report, Waldron became the front runner for the job over the past month, in part because of the trust he’d built up with the studio over their past two collaborations.
As far back as Loki, Waldron teased the potentiality of a connection between that project and Secret Wars, which only lived in the minds of fans at the time. Now all that remains for the studio is to complete its search for a director to allow them time to work with Waldron on the script.
