Joe and Anthony Russo once again tackle the notion of directing a Secret Wars movie for the MCU, which they offer up could be even bigger than The Avengers: Endgame and Infinity War.
Speaking with BroBible, the pair talk about what appeals to them about Secret Wars.
“You know, I read that when I was 10 or 11, and it was the scale of getting all of the heroes together,” explained Joe Russo. “It was one of the first major books to do that — that was really event-storytelling to me at its finest. And what happens when you put all of those personalities together. I also like the idea of villains having to team up with heroes. Anth and I like complicated relationships between heroes and villains, we like villains who believe they’re heroes in their own stories, so it’s all sort of built into this notion of Secret Wars. To execute something on the scale of Infinity War was directly related to the dream of Secret Wars, which is even larger in scale.”
Anthony Russo agrees: “It would be the biggest movie you could possibly imagine, so that’s what really excites us about the story — the ambition of it is even bigger than the ambition of the Infinity Saga.”
Russos think it would be interesting to do Secret Wars
Back in 2018 saw the Russos that a Secret Wars movie could bring them back to the MCU.
“We’ll say if the Fox deal goes through with Disney there’s a lot more characters to work with all of a sudden,” Joe Russo said. “It would be interesting to do something like Secret Wars…”
As we all know, Disney did end up purchasing Fox Studios and now owns the Marvel characters, including the X-Men and Fantastic Four.
There is actually a rumor that Kevin Feige is developing a Secret Wars movie as a way of incorporating all the Fox Marvel and MCU characters into one cohesive universe that includes the mention Doctor Doom and Galactus will be the next MCU’s major villains.
