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!
