Yet another edition of the world’s most prominent geek culture event San Diego Comic-Con International has come to an end, and just as in previous years, a number of announcements were made, leading to varying degrees of euphoria, excitement, anguish and anger. Being a long-term fan of Marvel Entertainment, I compiled five of my top announcements from the various elements that make up Marvel. Now, naturally, this list is purely subjective and I have intentionally left out some major announcements like the new Star Wars comics, in favour of some news that I feel deserves more analysis.

So without further ado, these are the topics we’ll be covering this week, in chronological order:

Evangeline Lilly in Ant-Man – Marvel Studios presented the cast of their upcoming 2015 movie Ant-Man and, among many other things, revealed what role lead actress Lilly would play.

Captain America and the Mighty Avengers – “Season 2” of Al Ewing’s The Mighty Avengers gets a new title and a new artist Luke Ross in November. Will this change of status quo be the shot in the arm this title needs?

Agent Bobbi Morse teased for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 – with fan favourite Patton Oswalt making the announcement, it wasn’t surprising that my Tumblr feed exploded when the words “Codename: Mockingbird” was said.

Angela: Asgard’s Assassin – a new ongoing series co-written by Kieron Gillen and Marguerite Bennett with interior art by Phil Jimenez and Stephanie Hans in November. As creative teams go, it honestly doesn’t get better than this.

Avengers: Age of Ultron interconnecting posters – all weekend, Marvel teased us by slowly releasing a series of interconnecting posters featuring the main cast of characters being overwhelmed by a horde of Ultron robots. Find out what else the posters reveal?

So stay tuned! The first of such articles will be posted in an hour!

Peter Lin

His teenage years spent nursing a giant man-crush on Steve Rogers, the first Captain America, Peter naturally found himself drawn to many other heroes who depicted strong, manly qualities, including the honour-bound warrior Worf, first Klingon in Starfleet, and the muscular rock hard abs of The Thing.
