New York, NY—June 24th, 2015— The Marvel Universe returns this fall, and at the forefront, a brand new band of Earth’s mightiest lead the charge as the premier team of the Marvel Universe. Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, returns to lead an all-new and all-different team Avengers – Captain America [Sam Wilson], Thor [Jane Foster], Vision, and the unlikeliest of heroes – Miles Morales, a.k.a. Spider-Man, Nova, and Ms. Marvel! Today, Marvel is pleased to announce ALL-NEW ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS #1 – a new ongoing series from blockbuster writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, S.H.I.E.L.D.) and artistic duties from Adam Kubert (Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows) and Mahmud Asrar (All-New X-Men).
Kicking off the new series, writer Mark Waid plans no training period and a baptismal by chaos and WAR! “As faithful NOVA readers will recognize, the main villain in our first story – Warbringer – has strong ties to Sam Alexander [a.k.a. Nova], but does Sam dare confess this to the team after the havoc Warbringer wreaks in New York City??”
Waid also plans to place hurdle after hurdle in front of this new team including a challenge a majority of people have to deal with every day – financial responsibility. “One of the Avengers’ often-undiscussed ‘superpowers’ has always been Tony Stark’s boundless fortune. As readers of Brian Bendis’s upcoming INVINCIBLE IRON MAN will see, Tony can no longer be the team’s sole financial resource–meaning that our Avengers will have to operate a little more modestly and with limits to their resources, making their battles even more challenging.”
The Avengers assemble this fall for a team that will truly live up to the name the series title implicitly states that is all-new, all-different, and like no other Avengers team ever. “This team is a group of characters that you’ve never seen operate together before, no matter how long you may have been reading comics, and yet it’s also a team that upholds the Avengers’ traditions—there’s nobody among these characters that you look at and feel hasn’t earned their place on the team or in the spotlight, the way some past Avengers occasionally have,” says Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “And it’s possibly the most real-world reflective Avengers team of all time, with only a single white male to be found amidst the membership rolls.”
The Avengers assemble this fall as the Marvel’s mightiest take on all-new foes, all-new challenges and present an all-new team in ALL-NEW ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS #1!
Twentieth Century Fox has announced the writing team of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway for its remake of Alien Nation, according to The Hollywod Reporter.
Marcum and Holloway wrote Iron Man, as well as Punisher: War Zone. The two also have credits on the recent Highlander remake, as well as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Plot information was scarce, but the article said the studio plans a franchise, similar to Planet of the Apes, and the first installment will explain how and why the aliens arrived here on Earth.
New York Comic Con News: At the New York Comic Con tonight Marvel Comics revealed its major “event” for 2015, a new year-long, Secret Wars written by Jonathan Hickman and drawn by Esad Ribic. The new Secret Wars was announced on the 30th anniversary of the original 1984, year-long Secret Wars event that did for comic book crossovers what Jaws did for summer movie blockbusters. The new Secret Wars will begin at the end of the current Avengers story arc, “Time Runs Out.”
Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort told USA Today: “The scope of it is about the biggest thing we’ve ever done or attempted to do. It’s may be not the best thing to say but I don’t know how we’ll top it a year later.” USA Today reports that the new Secret Wars will be a company-wide event affecting the entire publishing side when it debuts next spring–and like the original Secret Wars, which had a tie-in with Mattel–the new Secret Wars already has merchandising deals in place with Hasbro, Gentle Giant, and Hot Topic.
Marvel also released a very interesting teaser painting by Alex Ross, which reflects some of the events and participants in the new Secret Wars. Marvel fans will be scrutinizing this image closely since it includes new versions of Iron Man, Wasp, and Hawkeye, as well as Sam Wilson the new Captain America along with Steve Rogers, the old one. There seems to be several incarnations of various Marvel characters including three Thors, including the new female Thor, who looks like she’s about to get in a donnybrook with the original God of Thunder. Plus, is that Obnoxio the Clown in the upper right corner? And the burning question, will the Beyonder be back?
Marvel clearly thinks that it is upping the ante on comic book crossovers with this one. As Brevoort put it, “Our hope is that as seismic as the original Secret Wars was to the Marvel Universe and the readers, this new Secret Wars will be to the readers of today. People are certainly going to be talking about it 30 years from now.”
