Marvel’s Avengers: Secret Wars has found its writer in Loki creator and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness scribe Michael Waldron.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is keeping as much as possible under wraps, but Avengers: Secret Wars will adapt one of Marvel Comics’ biggest ever storylines. The story follows a vast number of heroes and their variants living in Battleworld following the incursion-related destruction of the multiverse. Doctor Strange, Doctor Doom, and Mr. Fantastic are all key players in Secret Wars.
As explained by John Krasinski’s Mr. Fantastic 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 somebody traveling the multiverse.
