‘Avengers: Secret Wars’: Michael Waldron to Pen Screenplay!!

Michael Waldron has been tapped to write the next installment of Marvel Studios‘ Avengers franchise, Avengers: Secret Wars, according to Deadline. Marvel had already revealed Secret Wars alongside Avengers: The Kang Dynasty at this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, as part of a mass unveiling of their roadmap through Phases 4 to 6. It had previously been announced that Jeff Loveness would write The Kang Dynasty, which is scheduled to be filmed concurrently with Secret Wars, and will be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, who has already directed the successful Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings for the studio.

Deadline claims meetings for the job took place in September and Waldron was believed to be the front-runner in the process, despite a large number of writers in contention, given the level of trust the studio has in him. Waldron served as producer for the Disney+ series Lokiwhich garnered both critical acclaim and fan praise and such was the show’s popularity, it was renewed for a second season, which is currently in production. Waldron also assisted in the writing process of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which was one of Marvel Studios‘ bigger movies post-pandemic. The movie has currently grossed more than $950 million worldwide since its release in May.

In a sign of the faith Waldron has from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, he has also been entrusted with developing and writing Feige’s secret Star Wars film, in collaboration with Lucasfilm. Prior to his hiring by Marvel for Loki, Waldron was a writer on the NBC show Community, and served as a writer/producer on the hit Adult Swim show Rick & Morty.

Plot details for both Avengers films are being kept tightly under wraps, and Marvel Studios declined to comment when asked by Deadline. While not much is known beyond the titles of both movies, it looks like Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror will be the architect behind the latest Avengers features. Waldron introduced the character in the season one finale of Loki as ‘He Who Remains’, a variant of Kang, whose death at the hands of a Loki variant, Sylvie, sets off a chain reaction of multiversal disasters. The two movies are also expected to end Phase 6, the last phase in the new MCU saga, named “The Multiverse Saga.”

Avengers: Secret Wars has not yet named a directorbut the movie is still scheduled to be released in theaters worldwide on November 8, 2025.
