Ryan Coogler Rumored As Possible Director For Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’

Last July, at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, announced that Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Secret Wars” will be arriving in theaters on November 7, 2025.  The film will be part of phase 6 of the MCU.

Not much is known about the new project however there are already some front runners who could direct the film including Black Panther director Ryan Coogler.  The news comes from the latest episode of The Weekly Planet Podcast.  Host James Clement said the following:

“And Ryan Coogler, here’s another scoop, Mason, is at the very least one of the directors, is currently in talks for Secret Wars. Which makes a lot of sense and yeah, the source here says, this is a reliable source, this person says ‘a fairly obvious choice.’ And it is. That makes sense.”

As always, since nothing has been confirmed by Disney or Marvel, we will treat this as a rumor for now.

Recently, it was announced that Destin Daniel Cretton had been tapped to direct Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Kang Dynasty.” That film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 2, 2025, so it’s possible a director for “Secret Wars” could be announced soon.
