Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is responding to the ongoing speculations about the adaption of Secret Wars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Speculations have circulated that a Secret Wars movie, featuring an even larger superhero and villain crossover than shown in Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019), could be in the works, especially after Marvel filmmakers the Russo Brothers said that they’d enjoy working on it.

Does this, however, imply that it is in the works? Fans should not count on it yet, according to Kevin Feige.
I’ve seen those rumors as well. Why is everyone talking about that now? That’s what I want to know,” he told ComicBook.com. “I think one person writes about it, and then another person writes about it, and then everybody’s writing about it, and then it’s happening.
So it’s not exactly a confirmation or a denial, but Feige did state that there’s plenty of comics material for the Marvel crew to pull from if they need to.
Highlighting the number of projects that are currently under production in the MCU, he said:
Secret Wars is a great, giant crossover. There are a lot of great, giant crossovers that we could [adapt] – it’s the ongoing embarrassment of riches of Marvel Comics.
Kevin Feige continued,
We’ve already started filming our 31st and 32nd MCU features, not counting that we’re going on seven, eight Disney+ series, and you can still be asked about other things that you haven’t [touched] yet. And that is remarkable.
Needless to say, Secret Wars is definitely a genuine possibility on the big screen somewhere down the line.
