Loki Writer Michael Waldron Hired For Avengers: Secret Wars - Report

The film is expected to hit theaters on November 7, 2025.


Michael Waldron (Loki executive producer, Multiverse Of Madness writer, and creator of Starz's Heels) has reportedly been hired to write Avengers: Secret Wars. According to Deadline's unnamed sources, Waldron "looks to be in line" for the upcoming MCU project.

Along with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, Secret Wars was revealed at Comic-Con this year, as part of Marvel's unveiling plans for Phase 5 and Phase 6. Phase 6 will kick off with Fantastic 4 on November 8, 2024, will end in 2025 with the pair of new Avengers movies. Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is expected to hit theaters May 2 that year, and Avengers: Secret Wars will follow on November 7.

At Comic-Con, Marvel boss Kevin Feige also explained that Phases 4, 5, and 6 make up what is now being called The Multiverse Saga. Waldron, who is also a writer-producer on Rick and Morty, reportedly became the forerunner for the Avengers film after a September meeting Marvel held with potential writers. Waldron's prolific output and strong track record with Marvel--he also wrote Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness--make his selection not a huge surprise, but still definitely news as these still faraway projects begin to take shape.

Marvel has not commented on the Waldron news.
