Raimi previously directed the ‘Spider-Man‘ trilogy for Sony/Marvel, starring Tobey Maguire. In 2022, he directed the MCU film ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘. He also recently revealed that ‘Spider-Man 4’ will soon happen.

‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ is a sequel to previous Avengers movies, including “The Avengers,” “Age of Ultron,” “Infinity War,” “Endgame,” and “The Kang Dynasty.” The film is the forty-sixth installment in the MCU, serving as the final chapter of Phase Six and The Multiverse Saga. As previously reported, ‘Secret Wars’ will be a soft reboot for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in Earth-1999. It marks the end of the current MCU and the Fox-Verse, setting the stage for a new and distinct MCU.

In ‘Secret Wars,’ Maguire will reprise his role as Spider-Man, following his last appearance in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ and Hugh Jackman will return as Wolverine, continuing from ‘Deadpool & Wolverine.’

‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ hits theaters on May 7, 2027. See more details on Secret Wars.
