WMG / Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors

Go To

Quake's father will appear as the villain Mister Hyde.
Just so we can hope to see a certain someone portray the character once more.

Hala will capture several older heroes, including Captain Marvel
This will prompt the Secret Warriors to be formed to rescue them from Hala's clutches.
  • Jossed, it was younger heroes, including Ms. Marvel and Inferno.

Exile will initially work for Hala
But the heroes' influence will prompt him to pull a Heel–Face Turn and become a good guy.

There's something important being hidden about Exile
He's the only prominent character outside of Hala to not have his design shown. Something might be up.
  • As it turns out, he's the Final Boss the team faces.

Ghost-Spider is actually an alternate Gwenpool.
Specifically, she took notice of how she doesn't recognize this Marvel universe, and decided to see if she could easily get spider powers.
  • Jossed. This Gwen is VERY faithful to the Spider-Gwen comics, the only major difference being... that she's NOT from an alternate universe!

If the film gets a sequel someday, the team will expand and get a few new members
Said members could include:
  • Elena "Yo-Yo" Rodriguez/Slingshot, with Natalia Cordova-Buckley reprising her role. The character was a a part of the original Secret Warriors in the comics after all, along with Quake.
  • Amka Aliyak/Snowguard. She wouldn't be the first member of the Champions transplanted to the Warriors in this universe.
    • Riri's addition means she wouldn't even be the second.
  • Shang-Chi. Given that he hasn't appeared in animation before, they can take liberties with him and have him be a teenager.
  • Falcon (Joaquín Torres)
  • Angela

Theories on the details of this universe

America Chavez will have a simplified origin
  • Instead of being a refugee from an alternate dimension of superpowered Latinas, she'll be simplified to a Puerto Rican inhuman.
    • Jossed according to promos, which indicate her origin story will be faithful to the comics.

Peter Parker will either: a) not appear, or b) have a reduced role

Some people have clamored for Peter to show up and team up with Gwen. However, as great of a character as he is, he's also Marvel's most overexposed character, meaning his presence would take away from the other characters. It's like DC Super Hero Girls , where DC's biggest money makers, Batman and Superman, are alluded to and occasionally reference to at best, but never physically appear outside of a statue for the latter, in order to let that show stand on its own. On top of that, Kevin is meant to be a stand in for Peter as Gwen's friend who ultimately dies, and having a potential series that has Peter's death as a major plot point would be a no-no. Granted, Avengers: Infinity War also had him die , but the difference is that it's a PG-13 rated movie aimed at teenagers and adults, so it's allowed to go into much darker territory, while this will air in the main Disney networks with kids in mind. In addition, Peter will survive given that he has future movies, while nothing indicates that Kevin can be brought back here.

  • Confirmed. Peter doesn't appear in the movie. In fact, Gwen doesn't appear in the movie despite headlining the Initiation shorts.

Hawkeye will appear earlier on in the movie, and a post-credits stinger will reveal that he has been training Kate Bishop behind the scenes.
Jossed; neither appear.

Gwen not appearing in the Secret Warriors film is due to executive meddling
Some might be disappointed that Gwen doesn't appear in the movie given how the Initiation shorts focused on her. However, it's possible that executive meddling is at play, in a similar manner to The Spectacular Spider-Man . The latter project was cancelled after Disney bought Marvel so that Sony could keep making Spiderman movies by returning the television rights. However, it's possible that Sony has the rights to create both live action and animated movies since Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will be the first Spiderman animated film. Unlike this film though, it will be a theatrical movie since that's what Sony can legally do. You'll notice how even after Disney bought Marvel, they've never created a Spiderman animated movie. The closest we've gotten would be the multi-part episodes on Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvel's Spider-Man , which are split up into individual episodes for syndication purposes, unlike a movie, which airs in one sitting. Gwen was probably allowed to be included in the lineup since she's only in the Initiation shorts, roughly the length of one episode, but not the movie since Disney doesn't have the rights to create a Spiderman movie, whether animated or live action, or for television or theaters. If a series were made with these characters, she could probably appear.
  • She's appearing in a special with the team as the lead character, so this is rather unlikely.
    • That's the thing. She's appearing in Marvel Rising specials, but not Marvel Rising movies. Both are seen as different forms of media.

Gwen’s friend Kevin is named after Kevin Feige
The writers wanted to give a nod to the producer of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

How well does it match the trope?
