However, Ryan Coogler with his debut in the MCU with Black Panther starring the late Chadwick Boseman, gave the studio the highest-earning solo flick, an Oscar nod, and many other accolades. All of which makes him one of the top contenders for the job.

Will Avengers: Secret Wars Director Be An MCU Veteran or Newcomer?

With Avengers: Secret Wars having to handle the incredible responsibility of concluding The Multiverse Saga, a story that has been developed across 36 currently confirmed MCU projects, it is understandable why many viewers are concerned about who may take on directing duties.
And, with Coogler’s already-established successes with Black Panther and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, alongside future involvement in the MCU, the director has the experience with the franchise to handle such a task. But, with the sequel yet to make its debut, and Coogler still producing Ironheart and set to develop a Disney+ series focused on Wakanda, the director may be focused on working on closer projects before even considering joining Avengers: Secret Wars writer Michael Waldron on Phase 6’s concluding chapter.
While the preceding crossover film, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, has found its director with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘ Destin Daniel Cretton, Avengers: Secret Wars has yet to find its director, leading to speculation on who would be the best choice to helm the film.
While new directors can help provide a fresh take on the MCU, many believe it would be best for Marvel Studios to recruit a director familiar with the franchise, and big-budget filmmaking, to oversee crossover features, as previously seen with Cretton and both Joe and Anthony Russo’s hiring for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, following their work on the Captain America series.

With Coogler having had a hand in developing Wakanda in the MCU across the Black Panther films, as well as his involvement in such upcoming Disney+ series as Ironheart as part of a five-year deal with Disney, many feel Coogler’s experience makes him an ideal candidate to handle the potential conclusion of the Multiverse Saga.
