Trending ‘Secret Wars’ as Marvel Fans Anticipate the Next Big Team
With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness finally in cinemas, fans are not happy to wait for the next chapter of the multiverse arc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Secret Wars.
Fans became convinced Multiverse of Madness, Lokiand Spider-Man: No Coming Home all built an adaptation of the comic book event Secret Wars. With Doctor Strange 2 outside, Secret Wars is now trending on Twitter as fans quiver in anticipation.
Secret Wars (not to be confused with the upcoming Disney Plus series Secret Invasion) was a comic event that saw the multiverses observed by a powerful being known as the Beyonder who summoned the heroes and villains of the many different universes into a battle world, called, well, Battleworld.
It encompasses The Avengers, Spider-Man, X-Men and Fantastic Four. Essentially every major player in the Marvel Universe. Because of these teams, fans are excited about this chapter’s version of the Infinity Saga.
Some think the Secret Wars the crossover is a lot closer than we think, estimating it should hit theaters as early as 2025. Others are much more skeptical of such a quickly completed story arc.
The multiverse element of Secret Wars has plenty of people hoping we’ll see returns from former superhero actors, with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield high on wish lists to return.
The number of characters in the original 1980s comic series and the contemporary 2015 series is staggering and would overshadow the Infinity War / End of Game in comparison – should they use all the elements at their disposal.
However, that number of characters could easily become a problem for the story itself, as fans pointed out on Twitter.
Marvel has yet to make an announcement about the next big team-up movie, with the studio taking its time thus far to figure out what it wants. With several more MCU releases planned for this year alone, it’s hard to say that Secret Wars is definitely a go.
