Avengers: Secret Wars will have an Endgame-style plot

The movie will have the superhero team journey across the multiverse instead of using time travel.

We are a few years and a phase away from Avengers: Secret Wars but the story details are already being revealed. According to new rumors, Secret Wars may be borrowing the plot of 2019's Avengers: Endgame.

Rumors suggest that Secret Wars will take plot elements from Avengers: Endgame.

Hollywood scooper Heavy Spoilers shared on Twitters key details about the potential story of Avengers: Secret Wars. According to the leaker, the upcoming Avengers movie will have an Endgame-style plot except it will use the Multiverse instead of time travel.

"From what I’ve heard about Avengers: Secret Wars, they basically wanna do Endgame but with the Multiverse instead of time travel," the insider claims. "Instead of going to key points in the MCU like they did with [Endgame], they’ll be traveling to key universes across the wider Marvel Universe."

The new leak corroborates previous rumors about the final movie for the Multiverse Saga and Phase 6.

Previous rumors suggest that characters from the Fox Marvel Universe and other major characters may make an appearance in Secret Wars. This includes Hugh Jackman returning as Wolverine with some of the X-Men characters.

Robert Downey Jr. may return in Avengers: Secret Wars.

There are also reports that Robert Downey Jr. could be returning as Tony Stark aka Iron Man in the upcoming movie. Previous rumors suggest that the actor will be making a comeback as the new AI for Riri William’s Ironheart suit. The rumors also point to a possible return for Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire in Avengers 6. The appearance of the duo alongside Tom Holland in Spider-Man: No Way Home sent fans into a frenzy.

There are speculations that Marvel Studios is trying "to get as many heavy hitters as they can" for the upcoming Avengers movie. According to the rumors, Kevin Feige wants to recreate the portals scene from Avengers: Endgame and feature almost every known Marvel character from the past to the present.

Kevin Feige reportedly wants to recreate the portal scene but with characters from various multiverses.

"Feige's dream and his vision is to have a similar scene to the Portals one at the end of Avengers: Endgame." Heavy Spoilers previously shared. "However, instead of just being restricted to MCU characters, we'll have multiple Marvel franchises converging at this point. This will include Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's Spider-Men, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, several X-Men cast members, Fantastic Four ones, and so on and so forth. Kang will have ravaged multiple dimensions at this point, and there will be a final stand against him."

If the rumors are true then it would make for one epic movie, and, Michael Waldron, the screenwriter for Secret Wars, will have the unenviable task of making a colossal movie that will attempt to outdo Avenger: Endgame in terms of scale.

For now, take these rumors with a grain of salt as the movie is still in the early stages of production and will be subject to change between now and until the film's premiere on May 1, 2026.
