‘Loki’s Michael Waldron to write ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’

Marvel continues to staff his upcoming two-parter Avengers sequels, Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars. In recent weeks, we have heard that Shang-ChiDestin Daniel Cretton would direct from a script by Jeff Loveness. While Secret Wars haven’t yet found (or at least announced) an instructor, it looks like one Marvel Cinematic Universe veteran returns to write his script.

Deadline reports it Michael Waldron have drawn the assignment to write Secret Wars. Marvel zombies know him as the creator of the Disney+ series Loki. Waldron also worked on the script for Marvel’s latest hit Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Here’s more, via Deadline:

Insiders say meetings for the job took place last month, and while a number of writers met, many believed Waldron was the front-runner given how much confidence the studio has in the writer. Waldron has been on the road with the studio over the past year, starting with last year’s smash hit Loki series for Disney+. Waldron served as executive producer and showrunner on the series, which was so popular that it became one of the few Marvel series to receive a second season renewal.

Waldron clearly has a very strong relationship with Marvel’s Kevin Feige; even before Secret Warshe was already working with Feige on his hush-hush Star wars project, the details of which have not yet been announced. Interestingly, Marvel’s earlier Avengers sequels, Infinity War and Final game, was written and directed by the same creative team. until now Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars is being made slightly differently with separate writers (and possible directors) on both films.

Since Waldron was a key creator on the show that officially introduced the multiverse to Marvel, he clearly has a good handle on the concept. It’s only fitting that he was the one who wrote the ending of “The Multiverse Saga” when Avengers: Secret Wars opens in theaters on November 7, 2025.
