"Avengers: Secret Wars": Marvel Finds Screenwriter

Before that he became known for "Loki"

In 2025, Disney is going to release two "Avengers" movies: "The Kang Dynasty" and "Secret Wars". For the latter, the responsible parties have announced the signing of the relevant screenwriter this week, and he is no stranger to the MCU. The talk is of Michael Waldron, who was in charge of writing the "Loki" series and "Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness". So he's actually a perfect choice for the sixth "Avengers" movie, right? After all, he kicked off the Multiverse saga by introducing the MCU series about Thor's adoptive brother while also teasing the new super-villain Kang the Conqueror. 

For the film's predecessor "Avengers: The Kang Dynasty", "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" creator Destin Daniel Cretton has already been confirmed as director. For the sequel, however, this occupation is still unclear. The task is likely to be challenging either way, since it will most likely follow the "Secret Wars" comics closely. There, the different universes of the Marvel franchise collide and their many different heroes have to face off against each other. In the meantime, the villain Doctor Doom will take charge and make life extremely difficult for the superheroes. 

Disney is unlikely to be in a big hurry after the screenwriter's signing, after all, "Avengers: Secret Wars" won't be released for another three years on November 7, 2025.
