It’s been more than three years since the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s biggest event, Avengers Endgame, the epic finale to the Infinity Saga, and one of the highest-grossing films of all time.
Every Avengers film has generated more than $1 billion, but the MCU’s future phases will have large shoes to fill. It remains to be seen whether they can rekindle the same enthusiasm, theory, and emotional engagement.
Avengers: Secret Wars, the second of two upcoming Avengers films, is in the works. So here’s all we know so far, from its release date to whether there will be a trailer update, cast, and plot.
Avengers Secret Wars Release Date
Avengers: Secret Wars is set to hit theaters on May 7, 2027. Its release date was initially slated for May 1, 2026, but Disney moved it up a year to June 2023 amid a spate of dramatic adjustments to its film schedule.
‘AVENGERS: SECRET WARS’ has been delayed from May 1, 2026, to May 7, 2027.

After Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, it will be the second of two Avengers films in Phase Six. It’s also the sixth movie confirmed for Phase Six of the MCU, following Blade, Deadpool 3, and Fantastic Four.
Avengers Secret Wars Cast
Although official cast information has yet to be released, some reasonable estimates can be made. Because it’s an Avengers film, you can count on seeing any of the following characters:
- Anthony Mackie as Captain America
- Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier/White Wolf
- Tom Holland as Spider-Man
- Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk
- Chris Hemsworth as Thor
- Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye
- Don Cheadle as War Machine
- Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel
- Paul Rudd as Ant-Man
- Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange
- Benedict Wong as Wong
- Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff
- Tom Hiddleston as Loki
- Letitia Wright as Shuri/Black Panther
- Danai Gurira as Okoye
- Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
- Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp
- Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie
- Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova
- Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk
- Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel
- Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau
- Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector/Steven Grant/Jake Lockley/Moon Knight
- Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop
- Gael García Bernal as Jack Russell/Werewolf by Night
- Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool
- Patrick Wilson as Charles Xavier
There are a few unanswered questions. We don’t know who will play Doctor Doom in the MCU. We may expect a major name, as he is one of Marvel’s most famous villains in history.
James Gunn has stated that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be “the last time people see this team of Guardians,” leaving it unknown whether they will return.
Finally, there’s the unsettling prospect of Marvel resurrecting Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. as Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. However, given how the multiverse arc has taken over the MCU, any actor who has ever played a Marvel hero may appear.

The script for Avengers: Secret Wars has been assigned to Michael Waldron, the writer of Loki and Doctor Strange 2. Some have claimed that Ryan Coogler could take over, while the Russo Brothers could return.
Avengers Secret Wars Plot
There have been several Secret Wars storylines in the Marvel comics: the original crossover from 1984 to 1985; the sequel, Secret Wars II; 2004’s Secret War, which has nothing to do with the first story; Beyond, a successor to the original series; and the 2015 Secret Wars event.
We won’t go into too much detail, but we will describe the original Secret Wars, as aspects of it will most likely be included in the film adaptation.
In Secret Wars, a cosmic entity known as the Beyonder takes Earth’s most powerful heroes and villains to Battleworld, a planet designed solely for the purpose of allowing them to battle. “I come from the stars!” Slay your opponents, and whatever you desire will be yours! “Nothing you wish for is out of my reach,” the Beyonder informs all those he has kidnapped.
Spider-Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Hawkeye, Iron Man, She-Hulk, Thor, the Wasp, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men are among the heroes who appear.
There are other villains in the picture, but two stand out: Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors, and Doctor Doom, who has yet to be cast in the MCU.
