marvel’s Avengers: Secret Wars found its writer in Loki creator and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness scribe Michael Waldron.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is keeping it as secret as possible, but Avengers: Secret Wars will adapt one of Marvel Comics’ greatest storylines. The story follows a large number of heroes and their variants living in Battleworld following the incursion’s destruction of the multiverse. Doctor Strange, Doctor Doom, and Mr. Fantastic are all key players in Secret Wars.
As John Krasinski’s Mr. Fantastic explains in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, “an incursion occurs when the boundary between two universes erodes and they collide, destroying one or both entirely.” This is often the result of someone traveling through the multiverse.
