MCU has been struggling for the last few months. There is an obvious lack of quality when it comes to released content. The things that used to work no longer draw billions in profit. ‘Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania’ failed in a big way, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ was a hit but had an underwhelming opening, and Disney+ shows are heavily criticized for their lack of direction, which results in fewer and fewer people interested in the content overall. The recent projected numbers for ‘The Marvels’ Box Office tell the same kind of story, as the movie is projected to fall behind its predecessor by almost a billion dollars.
Now, Joanna Robinsons, in her book ‘The Reign of Marvel Studios’ and on the podcast The Watch. Made some staggering claims about the direction that the MCU would be going in.
We’ve recently heard that Daredevil will be overhauled with new directors and new writers in place. The executives thought that the legal procedural drama they were preparing was boring and didn’t honor the source material correctly.
Now Joanna Robinson revealed that Kevin Feige perhaps plans on using ‘Avengers: Secret Wars,’ the final installment in phase 6.
“We have a quote from Kevin Feige sort of implying… that like Secret Wars will serve as a soft reboot in which they can prune everything. That’s not to use a Loki-ism. Prune everything that’s not working and just keep what is [working], or bring back people you thought were gone forever.”
We don’t know what the premise of ‘Secret Wars’ is bound to be, but we do know that it makes sense for it to work as a reboot. The MCU is getting crowded with big players, especially if X-Men and Fantastic Four are to be soon included in it.
According to the recent rumors, the writers for ‘Kang Dynasty’ and ‘Secret Wars’ were replaced, with ‘Deadpool 3 reportedly directly leading into the events of the ‘Secret Wars.’ So it’s obvious that multiverse and timeline hopping will be a big part of it.
Currently, ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ is set to conclude the Multiverse Saga on May 7, 2027.
