A little over a year ago, The Russo Brothers directed one of the best movie-going experiences of all time with the release of Avengers: Endgame. After the massive success of the film, the Russo Brothers announced they were stepping away from the MCU for a while.
During there time away, they have many new projects in the planning stages including an upcoming Netflix spy thriller with Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling.
Despite being busy, Marvel is not completely out of their future. In a recent interview, they dropped some clues about what an eventual return to the MCU might look like for them. And once again, the Marvel Comics classic story Secret Wars was name-dropped. It seems that this story is the Russo’s true Marvel conclusion.
While talking with BroBible (via IGN), the Russos explained the reason why they would like to potentially adapt Secret Wars into a big-screen event. Joe Russo admitted to being obsessed with “the scale of getting all of the heroes together” when he first read the comic book as a kid. And seeing that come to life might be too exciting a prospect to pass up. Joe added,
“I also like the idea of villains having to team up with heroes. [Anthony] 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.”
Anthony Russo followed up by saying,
“It would be the biggest movie you could possibly imagine — the ambition of it is even bigger than the ambition of the Infinity Saga.”
If this were to eventually come to fruition, it may indeed top Endgame as the biggest movie of all time.
