The Russo Brothers are about to blow the world away with their epic 3 plus hour Avengers: Endgame, but with the film so close to release we’re all wondering what they’ll do next. This may be their final Marvel movie and I’m sure they’ve had talks about projects they may want to do, but if they could do something else what would it be?
MTV News asked this question (and even ventured projects like Wolverine, Fantastic Four as potential options) and got a surprising answer: Secret Wars! The iconic series running from 1984 to 1985 might be most remembered for the black Symbiote Spider-Man costume making its first appearance, but it also was iconic for how it forced heroes and villains to fight on Battleworld.
“I keep saying Secret Wars ’cause that was one of the first books that I really fell in love with as a kid…this notion of event storytelling,” Joe Russo said. Given how big the final two Avengers movies are it makes sense Joe Russo would pick such an elaborately huge fight event series for his next Marvel project. Russo went on to say, “That’s part of the reason that we gravitate so strongly towards these event films and these ensemble films is that the notion that you can contain so many different characters, and so many different points of view, and galvanize them around a story point is really compelling to us.”
