The Russo Brothers Reveal Their Dream MCU Project

Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo want to make Secret Wars.

During an interview with Deadline, the directing duo revealed that this is actually their dream Marvel project…but didn’t confirm if it’s actually in the cards.

“Our love for Marvel is based on the books we read as kids, the books we fell in love with,” Joe said. “The only show we loved growing up was Secret Wars.”

Secret Wars was first published in 1984 as a twelve-issue limited series, an ambitious comic book crossover event that teamed up with The Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four and others as were taken by an alien entity to a place known as Battleworld.

He also introduced the symbiote that would later become known as Venom.

How would all of this translate to the big screen? Well, it seems the Russos are imagining it as a dual feature, much like Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

“It’s incredibly ambitious,” he added. “It would be bigger than Infinity War and Endgame. But it’s a colossal undertaking. Those two movies were very difficult to make. So, trying to imagine making two more movies even bigger than those two? We we’ll have to sleep on it.

The Russo Brothers have been asked about Secret Wars for years, often giving suspicious answers which suggest that there is more to the idea than just a suggestion.
