Published 1 year ago
With the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe crossing over for Avengers: Endgame, Kevin Feige is said to be upping the ante with Avengers: Secret Wars by uniting all Marvel properties including the ones outside of the MCU.
As per a new rumor from @MyTimeToShineH, Secret Wars has already signed on Tobey Maguire and Hugh Jackman to reprise their roles as Spider-Man and Wolverine. Here’s the post:

I’ll admit, the news seems too good to be true, but if they were able to bring Maguire back for No Way Home and Jackman back for Deadpool 3, I think a crossover with both of them doesn’t seem too farfetched.
Personally, I think relying too much on the appearance of these legacy characters could be detrimental to the brand in the long run; but even if that was the case, I’m sure there is a great way to bring back the characters without it feeling like they’re banking too much on nostalgia.
I’m just hoping they also pay attention to some lesser-celebrated Marvel properties. How about a cameo from Ben Affleck’s Daredevil or maybe the ‘00s Fantastic Four complete with Chris Evans as the Human Torch?
If anything, the movie is still a long way to go, and a lot of changes could happen over the years, depending on what Marvel plans to do. In the meantime, all fans can do is just wait.
Catch Avengers: Secret Wars when it hits theaters on May 1, 2026. The next Marvel property, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, comes to cinemas on Feb. 17.
