Avengers Secret Wars Release Date is Officially Confirmed by MCU!
The sixth Avengers movie, “Avengers: Secret Wars,” won't come out for a long time, but there are already a lot of rumours and theories about it. The movie will be the last part of Marvel's Phase 6 and the Multiverse Saga, so we can expect big things from this project. Plus, we have no idea what will happen to the Marvel universe after this movie, so the stakes are higher than ever.
We've put together everything we know about Avengers: Secret Wars, including our best guesses about what the movie's plot will be about based on the comics. Even though there aren't many firm details—there isn't even a confirmed director yet, though Black Panther and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler's name has come up in rumours—we have everything we know about the film below. So, if you want to know everything about Avengers 6, all you have to do is read our ultimate guide.
Avengers Secret Wars Release Date
The release date for Avengers: Secret Wars has been set. Avengers: Secret Wars will come out in theatres on May 5, 2026. This is part of a big change that Disney is making to its upcoming release schedule.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, said that it would come out on November 7, 2025.
First up is Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, which is set to come out on May 2, 2025. This will start the summer movie season for that year.
Who Will Be in the Cast of Avengers Secret Wars?
We're just guessing, but we think that in Avengers: Secret Wars, many of our favourite characters will come back and work together to save the day.
Obviously, a lot of the MCU characters introduced in Phase 4 will be in it, like Sam Wilson's Captain America, Shang-Chi, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Shuri's Black Panther, etc., as well as the newer MCU heroes we met in Phase 3, like Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, and Doctor Strange.
We're going to go out on a limb, though, and say that there will also be familiar faces from all over the multiverse. The actors from the old X-Men movies might come back (keep your fingers crossed for Hugh Jackman), and Peter-2 (Tobey Maguire) and Peter-3 (Andrew Garfield) might too. Basically, if they've ever been in a Marvel movie, they might show up in Secret Wars.
Who will be the Marvel bad guy that gives the Avengers trouble? Well, it's probably going to be Kang, which means Jonathan Majors will be back, but we'd love to see Doctor Doom finally get the respect he deserves. Still, the real question is whether Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and the rest of the original Avengers will come back through the magic of the multiverse.
What Will Happen in Avengers Secret Wars?
We don't know for sure, but we think that the plot of Avengers: Secret Wars will have a lot to do with what happens in Kang Dynasty, just like Infinity War and Endgame did.
Most likely, Kang Dynasty will end in a huge disaster that the Avengers will have to fix in Secret Wars. Kang the Conqueror, a Marvel villain, will be at the centre of the chaos.
Based on the source material, it's possible that this cataclysm will have something to do with the Incursions mentioned at the end of Multiverse of Madness. When these deadly disasters happen, things from different dimensions crash into each other and kill all life in the universe.
If Secret Wars is like the comics, these things will keep happening until the whole multiverse is gone. Then, a powerful being (likely Kang, but we haven't ruled out Doctor Doom either) will glue together the last few pieces of reality, and the Avengers will try to fix things.
That, or Marvel will just do their own thing like they did with Civil War and Infinity War. It's hard to say where Marvel will go next, but if Michael Waldron, who wrote Doctor Strange 2, writes the superhero movie, he'll probably want to go big.
Is There Any Trailer for Avengers Secret Wars?
Not yet! Marvel has only released a logo for the movie so far, and since it won't come out until late 2025, a trailer is probably a long way off.
