The Russo Brothers Think Secret Wars Could Be Bigger Than Avengers: Endgame

The Russos Reiterate Desire To Direct A Secret Wars Event In MCU

Do you think Secret Wars could be bigger than Avengers: Endgame? When it comes to Marvel’s comics big “events” there are a few that really stand out. The Infinity Gauntlet is one, which was adapted into what we know as Infinity War and Endgame. Another one most fans will have heard of is Secret Wars. The Russo brothers have made it clear in the past that they would be tempted back into the MCU by a Secret Wars adaptation.

Would Secret Wars be even bigger than Infinity War and Endgame? The Russo brothers certainly think so. They recently spoke with brobible and here is what Joe said about Secret Wars:

“You know, I read that when I was 10 or 11, and it was the scale of getting all of the heroes together. It was one of the first major books to do that — that was really event-storytelling to me at its finest. And what happens when you put all of those personalities together. I also like the idea of villains having to team up with heroes. Anth and I like complicated relationships between heroes and villains, we like villains who believe they’re heroes in their own stories, so it’s all sort of built into this notion of Secret Wars. To execute something on the scale of Infinity War was directly related to the dream of Secret Wars, which is even larger in scale.”

To which Anthony replied:

“It would be the biggest movie you could possibly imagine, so that’s what really excites us about the story — the ambition of it is even bigger than the ambition of the Infinity Saga.”

Secret Wars could be bigger than Avengers: Endgame

Interesting! I have seen a few different adaptations of Secret Wars, but have only a vague memory of the actual comic book run. I remember my son was gifted a Secret Wars figures which contained one of the issues. It was the issue where Doctor Doom takes the powers of The Beyonder. What I do remember (from my youth) is that the comic book run was pretty massive, and hard to keep track of back in the day.

However, my most recent memory was an adaptation of Secret Wars. In the ’90’s cartoon The Amazing Spider-Man, they kinda ended things with a version of Secret Wars. That version felt so small in scale compared to the comic book run. Let’s just say I enjoyed it, but it was nowhere near what I recalled from the comics.

Secret Wars could definitely be bigger than Endgame in terms of sheer cast numbers. However, would it be as exciting a story as Endgame? Hard to say because Infinity War and Endgame are very, very different from The Infinity Gauntlet comic event. A Russo version of Secret Wars would likely be just as different from the comics as those Avengers movies were.

The Russo brothers might think Secret Wars could be bigger than Avengers: Endgame, but do you? Should Secret Wars be the next big event, or leave it for later down the line? Leave your thoughts below, or continue the discussion on Discord.
