Kevin Feige continues to earn the MCU fandom’s trust with the latest Wolverine announcement for Deadpool 3. The Marvel Studios president has been the talk of the town since that viral video of Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman sending their delightful regards to the producer for reuniting Logan and the merc with the mouth. But Feige isn’t stopping there, going as far as reassuring Wanda fans they haven’t seen the last of Scarlet Witch. The fandom seems convinced this indicates the return of 2000s Marvel characters for the big event movie, Avengers: Secret Wars.
The MCU producer remains on a blockbuster streak, largely by delivering what audiences desire, and with the multiverse storyline in full force for MCU Phase 5, there are talks among fans that Jackman’s Wolverine and Toby Maguire’s Spider-Man could share screen time in 2025’s Avengers: Secret Wars.
Note, this is just a fan theory though several such theories have panned out and the trio Spider-Men appearance in No Way Home is proof of that. Moreover, John Krasinski’s Reed Richards casting was a fan service so there’s no question Kevin Feige remains all ears for fans’ plea. But for now, a response from Insider Daniel RPK suggests Logan’s return in Secret Wars is all but confirmed.
So Jackman in Secret Wars is a sure thing at this point I'll say…

Elizabeth Olsen talks about the #ScarletWitch interacting with X-Men characters!

Elizabeth Olsen also responded to the Wolverine news and aside from her sheer excitement, the Multiverse of Madness star is interested in appearing alongside other X-Men members as Logan’s return opens the door for other stars like Michael Fassbender to reprise Magneto.
“I guess Wolverine is X-Men,” Olsen said when asked about which characters she hopes to team up with in the future of the MCU. “It would be cool to work with a lot of those people from the X-Men franchise. I guess Fassbender is my dad in some world?” (via: Variety).
So expecting to see the Marvel heroes established in the 2000s in Avengers 5 isn’t far out of reach. Some are also hoping for Wesley Snipes’ Blade in Secret Wars. Readers can check out some of the reactions below.
Thank you kevin feige🙏 now we have hopes to see tobey hugh and even nicholas cage together in secret wars😭🤞 https://t.co/GRBx7HSUUG

Warner Bros. can’t stop stepping on rakes with their superhero films. Meanwhile Kevin Feige somehow got Hugh Jackman to play Wolverine again for the MCU.

He’s a lock for Secret Wars imo. The only thing he never did, was crossover with the MCU. You’re right, now that those others have, he’s the last piece. Feige won’t redo the X-Men until after SW anyway.

I’m telling you RIGHT FUCKING NOW.
If this means Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is in Secret Wars.

Crazy how Kevin Feige started out as an associate producer on the first X-Men movie and now has Hugh Jackman back as Wolverine for a Deadpool movie in the MCU. I look forward to reading his eventual autobiography pic.twitter.com/4hl5ThQqDv

People need to understand now that there is a very real possibility of Tobey’s Spidey meeting Hugh’s Wolverine in Secret Wars and I am freaking out about it. pic.twitter.com/WHT0g1JL0l

I keep thinking. What would beat the portals scene in Endgame? This would. Even if it’s for one scene. Just to have them back for one scene. Together. Get Toby in there too and maybe a Wesley Snipes Blade. This would do it. https://t.co/yTAvjPkunb pic.twitter.com/xNhIjWTzf7

Kevin Feige has become a household name in Hollywood for accomplishing the impossible, like convincing Sony Pictures to sign a collab deal to feature Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, reviving Netflix’s street-level heroes like Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and including X-Men’s Charles Xavier in Doctor Strange 2. The veteran producer’s success has been in the spotlight, even influencing other prominent players in the industry like Warner Bros. Discovery’s David Zaslav who searches for a Feige-Esque chief to hand the keys to the DC Studios brand.
It remains to be seen what plans are in store for the Fox-made Marvel characters in the ever-growing MCU.
