Joe and Anthony Russo have stated the only way they would consider a return to the MCU would be with a Secret Wars movie and have once again expressed their interest. This could include the Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and would be bigger than the Infinity Saga.
The filmmakers have spoken about the project on several occasions before. They recently spoke to BroBible about there love for the storyline.
Joe Russo had the following to say:
You know, I read that when I was 10 or 11, and it was the scale of getting all of the heroes together. 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 the Infinity War was directly related to the dream of Secret Wars, which is even larger in scale.
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
Now, this has been spoken about many times in recent years but the brothers are currently committed to making smaller movies before jumping back into blockbusters. They have just finished production on Cherry, Starring Tom Holland. It was recently announced that their next venture will be a $200 million spy thriller for Netflix, starring Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling.
With most of the plans in place for Phases 4-6 of the MCU, this will most likely be in future phases. Although, they may start setting this up earlier. Either way, it would be a great storyline to explore in the franchise.
As always we will keep you updated as we hear more develop on the story.
