If anything, September will be an important month for Marvel because, if all goes according to plan, they’ll be just about ready to put their currently in progress crossover event, Secret Empire, behind them and poised to move forward with whatever their next major initiative may be. And while we haven’t been in contact with any flies on the walls over at the House of Ideas, we’re pretty sure the Marvel Legacy one-shot is the vanguard.
First, let’s talk a bit about Secret Empire because that seems like the logical thing to do. Not long ago, it was revealed that a tenth issue would be added to the limited series, something not unheard of when it comes to major events – especially those from Marvel. And although this would seem like a definitive end to the story, there where rumors swirling that an eleventh wasn’t out of the question.
From what we can tell, that’s not going to happen, but an epilogue of sorts in Secret Empire Omega #1 has been announced. Upon examining the solicitation below, it quickly becomes apparent that this will likely be an essential read given that it retains the very same creative team that worked on the mainline series itself.

Secret Empire Aftermath!
• Hydra has fallen, but the world is still not secure! As the heroes of the Marvel Universe stir from the wreckage of the battlefield, the inevitable rebuilding must begin.
• However, one question hangs in the air over the proceedings: What redemption can there be for Captain America?
40 Pgs./Rated T+ …$4.99
Should that meet its targeted September release – which may be a feat, especially when you consider that Secret Empire #6 has been delayed until July 19 – that’ll smoothly transition into the all important Marvel Legacy #1 (solicitation below). So, if the publisher does allow it to ship before Secret Empire concludes, we can only hope that it doesn’t completely spoil the crossover’s ending. But, then again, let’s not forget this is the same lot that released Who Will Wield The Shield? before Captain America: Reborn wrapped.

Marvel Legacy: It’s everything you’ve been longing for — and more!

“An Asgardian titan. A Wakandan warrior bred to be a king. The very first Sorcerer Supreme.”
When you read a teaser as cryptic and powerful as that, you know you’re in for something special. But when you also consider that the story its hyping up will be written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by Esad Ribic, with a double gatefold cover provided by the legendary Joe Quesada, then you truly know the House of Ideas isn’t messing around. Such is the case with Marvel Legacy #1, a monumental one-shot slated to hit shelves this fall that intends on showing us how it’s “all connected.”
I say that because the publisher intends on taking us back to 1,000,000 BC, when “when iconic torch-bearers such as Odin, Iron Fist, Star Brand, Ghost Rider, Phoenix, Agamotto, and Black Panther come together for the startling origin of the Marvel Universe.” From the sound of that, »

Disney is getting ready to unveil their latest attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout, on the eager public soon. The ride is taking the place of Disney's Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride that had been a staple of Disney's California Adventure for years. There are tons of cool Easter eggs and fun things for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to enjoy, as revealed during a recent preview of the attraction. But don't get too excited over some of the things being teased in the ride, because it is not actually part of the McU.
Joe Rohde, a creative executive at Walt Disney Imagineering who helped create the ride, recently spoke with i09 about Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout. Because James Gunn directed and helped create the attraction, with the stars of the movie turning up to play their respective parts, it was reasonable to assume that »

Ant-Man will shrink onto the small screen, for a series of shorts on Disney Xd...
The shorts will follow on from the events of Peyton Reed's 2015 Ant-Man movie, but, as with the Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series, we wouldn't expect them to be officially canonical with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The cinematic sequel Ant-Man And The Wasp, we expect, won't need to shape its script to account for these events.

A few months back, we reported on a rumor stating that the House of Ideas would be returning many of its top titles to their classic numbering in a post-Secret Empire world. Well, that turned out to be 100% true as Marvel Legacy was announced this past weekend at one of the biggest shows around, C2E2.
But before the wealth of the publishing line reverts back to original numbering as opposed to the annual relaunches we’ve grown accustomed to, a 50-page one-shot by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic dubbed Marvel Legacy #1 will spearhead the movement and is set to include “the Earth-shattering return of a beloved Marvel mainstay,” causing many to believe this has something to do with the Fantastic Four.
Often referred to as “Marvel’s first family,” Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Human Torch and the Thing are referred to as such because they were the »

Though The Punisher has struggled in live-action in the past, Frank Castle was finally done justice when Jon Bernthal brought him to life in Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil. The character made his debut in season 2 and became an instant hit with fans, which led to him getting his own spinoff show. It’s set to hit the streaming service later this year and though it’s now done shooting, we really haven’t seen anything from it just yet.
Of course, the usual deluge of set photos have made their way online, but in terms of official promotional material, it’s looking like we’ll have to wait until Comic-Con to get that. In the meantime, though, we’ve got a very cool new poster to share with you today, which comes to us from Marvel’s Joe Quesada, who put it together in honor of the show recently »

Micro, Paul Schulze as Rawlins, Daniel Webber as Lewis Walcott, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Jason R.

Marvel Studios hit us with a huge surprise this week, dropping the very first trailer and poster for director Taika Waititi’s Phase Three threequel Thor: Ragnarok, and as I’m sure most of you will agree – it was rather fantastic indeed (so much so that The Flickering Myth Reaction to the trailer is probably the most positive its ever been – read our writers’ thoughts here). The trailer proved to be a huge hit online too, »

Earlier today, Marvel artist Joe Quesada shared a poster for The Defenders, and to say it’s stunning would be a total understatement. While a low-quality version was spotted at the show’s wrap party, this one offers up a much closer look at the cast and is definitely wallpaper worthy.
As you can see, it shows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) all…well, in their civvies. Of course, considering the fact Daredevil is the only member of The Defenders to wear a superhero suit, that makes a lot of sense.
Looming in the background are Sigourney Weaver’s mysterious villain and a character who looks a whole lot like Elodie Yung’s Elektra. When we last saw her, The Hand was attempting to resurrect the Man Without Fear’s former flame, so this may »

Take a look here…

“Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”

This is the year of the Spider. With Tom Holland soon to take center stage in the McU in this year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man fans have never been happier. And yet, rumbling in the background, there’s still a long-running controversy – one that Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott waded into over the weekend.
In a heated discussion on the Comic Book Resources forum, Slott openly discussed the Spider-Man marriage – and the shocking events of One More Day…
What You Need To Know
It all began in 1987, when Stan Lee was attending a comic book convention. He was asked a simple question: Could Peter Parker and Mary-Jane ever get married? Well, back in the day Lee was writing a Spider-Man newspaper strip, and he decided to go with it. It wasn’t a “We have to do it” scenario – it was a “Why not?”
To Marvel’s surprise – and, in truth, »

Before Logan hit theaters, director James Mangold made it quite clear that he wanted this movie to stand apart from the rest of the X-Men movies, and every other superhero movie, for that matter. The director recently defended his decision to not have a post credit scene, and the movie is set in the year 2029, the farthest in the future this franchise has ever been. Aside from Hugh Jackman's title character and Patrick Stewart's Professor X, we don't see any other characters from the original X-Men trilogy, but it seems there was almost a reference to one, according to director James Mangold.
Just days after Logan hit theaters, director James Mangold sat down with Empire to reveal some new details about this story. Towards the middle of the film, Logan, Professor X and X-23 (Dafne Keen) help a man named Will Munson (Eriq La Salle) and his family »

Time has begun to tell on the Wolverine. His face is careworn, he needs glasses to read, and even one of his adamantium claws doesn't quite extend as smoothly as it used to. This is, of course, Hugh Jackman's last hurrah as the sharp-clawed superhero, and an air of finality hangs heavily on Logan, directed by James Mangold.
It's a road-trip movie, it's western, it's neo-noir, it's science fiction. But overwhelmingly, it's a portrait of three outcasts and how they interact. There's Logan himself - trying in vain to lay low and work as a chauffeur on the Mexican border, »
Will DC’s Aquaman have some seafaring competition? According to Reel News Hawaii, he will. Is Namor the Sub-Mariner heading to the big screen?
Reel News Hawaii is a site devoted to reporting news about movies being filmed in Hawaii. They recently broke the news that the Inhumans series would be filming in Hawaii, which has been verified. This week, they posted the following tweet…

There’s buzz around the island that two rival productions could be swimming in our waters. “Aquaman” & “Sub Mariner”.
Is Marvel finally going to use the long-neglected Namor? For a long time, it wasn’t clear who exactly owned the film rights to the Sub-Mariner. Universal Studios had optioned the rights to the character but never actually made a movie about him. The character languished in limbo for years until Joe Quesada, the COO of Marvel, stated that the rights to »

Fans still have another few years of Marvel's Phase 3 lineup, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5), Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7) and Thor: Ragnarok (November 3) hitting theaters this year, but many are already looking ahead to Phase 4. While the titles have not been announced yet, the studio has set three release dates for the year 2020 (May 1, July 10, November 6), which will represent the studio's first Phase 4 movies. There has been a rumor that Namor the Sub-Mariner may be one of those movies, which may actually be happening sooner than we think, if a new rumor is to be believed.
Reel News Hawaii reports that the "buzz around the island" is that two aquatic superheroes may be gearing up to shoot in Hawaii soon, Warner Bros.' Aquaman and Marvel's Namor the Sub-Mariner. Marvel Studios hasn't confirmed that Namor the Sub-Mariner is even happening, but, while promoting Captain America: Civil War, screenwriter Stephen McFeely stated that, »
For a long time, it was unclear which studio actually owned the rights to Namor, but last year Marvel Cco Joe Quesada finally seemed to clear things up once and for all: The Savage Sub-Mariner is under the Marvel Studios umbrella. Since then, however, we haven't really had any indication that they had plans for the character, but a new rumor doing the rounds indicates that this may be about to change. Following last week's news that The Inhumans was scheduled to film on their shores at a new Marvel studio in Oahu, Reel News Hawaii now reckon there are also plans for a live-action Namor project. There's buzz around the island that two rival productions could be swimming on our waters. "Aquaman" & "Submariner". Fingers crossed! pic.twitter.com/1WLbZkWJAN — Reel News Hawaii (@reelnewshawaii) February 15, 2017 While this "buzz" might not amount to anything, they did get some solid info on The Inhumans show, »

Remember the comic book from the newest Logan trailer? We know who drew it now.
The recent trailer for Logan featured, as you probably know, comics whose identity was a bit of a mystery. Not least because they're great looking comic pages that signal some weird, weird timeline stuff for the upcoming movie.
Putting an end to the speculation as to who was behind said pages, Joe Quesada, the artist behind Batman: Sword Of Azrael and X-Factor #87 and also the Chief Creative Officer at Marvel posted on his Tumblr that he penciled the header pic, as well as others that will be used in the film. Dan Panosian then went over his linework to give it a '90s ink and coloring style'.
These pages look outstanding, and even in early stages they look very different from Quesada's other work. Quesada's style is distinctive, exaggerate,d and muscular. »
