After Avengers: Endgame became one of the biggest hit movies ever made in 2019, fans wondered where Marvel Studios could possibly go after an event that massive. As it turns out, that next game-changing event comes directly from one of Marvel’s most insane comic stories, with the MCU’s Phase 6 now confirmed to end with Avengers: Secret Wars in late 2025.
This film already has a real shot at topping what Endgame did thanks to the use of Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror, who could even be joined or toppled by the MCU’s eventual take on Fantastic Four villain Victor Von Doom. As the Incursion that started in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness grows more serious, worlds will collide and every amount of hell possible will break loose between heroes and villains across the universe.
Mark Ruffalo Teases Secret Wars
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight at the premiere event for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Hulk star Mark Ruffalo looked ahead to what Marvel Studios is doing with 2025’s Avengers: Secret Wars.
When asked what he can tease about the movie and how it will compare to 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, Ruffalo noted that movie will be “hard to top.” However, he placed his trust in Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, sharing that the plan is to “go out with a big bang” when the sixth Avengers movie debuts.
Even with Mark Ruffalo’s penchant for spoiling things in the past, this quote doesn’t indicate that he knows what’s coming with Secret Wars, especially since the script for the movie hasn’t yet been written. But seeing how much he understands the stories Marvel Studios is willing to tackle, he has no doubt that the sixth Avengers movie will be something to behold upon its debut.
Fans certainly hope to see Ruffalo involved with Secret Wars in some form or another, having been a part of all four Avengers releases to date since 2012. But no matter who actually continues into this movie after May 2025 kicks things off with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, the stakes and scale in this new outing will be absolutely unprecedented.
Avengers: Secret Wars will debut in theaters on November 7, 2025.
