Avengers: Endgame truly set the bar for what fans expect to see for a film that closes out an entire saga of the MCU. With all the superheroes we had so far seen on our screens uniting together in one battle against Thanos, many are hoping that we will have a repeat of this in Avengers: Secret Wars, but will this mean that all heroes will return? Even the less-than-popular ones?
Phase four of the MCU has brought with it a whole new slate of heroes, especially now that Marvel Studios is introducing them through their Disney series as well as through films. We have met Shang Chi, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, Monica Rambeau aka Photon, America Chavez, Yelena Belova, Kate Bishop, She-Hulk, and the Eternals (of course there are many more additions on top of these).
The latter group received well below the average audience and critical rating for an MCU theatrical debut back in 2021 and seen as we haven’t really heard a peep from them since many are wondering how and when they will show up again in the future. There has been plenty of chatter recently that a second film is in the works but that has not yet been backed up by any official statement.
With how the film ended, half of the group has been carted across the universe by a Celestial, so without that being addressed it is unlikely we would see all of them back for Secret Wars unless Eternals 2 takes one of those still-vacant movie slots between Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars.
Some fans on Reddit are asking questions as to how exactly these god-like beings will make their way into the conclusion of the Multiverse Saga.
