Here is a roundup of news coming from Marvel so far today. Take the jump to find out what the next Avengers series will be, and who will be in it.
A new series starting in 2011 starring Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man.
Written by Jeph Loeb, with art by Ed McGuinness. The story does not take place in the present, according to Loeb.
While nothing was specifically said, there was a slide shown that had the Crossgen logo burning and transforming into something different with a date 0f 2011 near the bottom. But as with the TRON news (below) it looks like Disney is giving something back to Marvel.
Formic Wars: Burning Earth arrives in 2011.
Jeph Loeb announced he and Ed McGuineess will be wrapping up their run on the series with issue #24. Agents of Atlas team of Jeff Parker and Gabriel Hardman will pick up the series in September.
Look for RULK to team with Iron Man, Thor, the Sub-Mariner and other Avengers, when he joins the Avengers in issue #7.
Now that Marvel is owned by Disney, it makes sense that many of the Disney properties will find their way into the publisher’s hand. TRON: Betrayal will start in 2011, and tie into the TRON: Legacy movie.
