UPDATE: Just wanted to add, much of this is a mixture of of bits and pieces from a number of sources, and yes, some of it may be old and out of date, some of it may have changed, some may be plain wrong… it’s scuttlebutt. The X-Factor news however, sorry, you can take that to the bank, which is why I headlined it. Sorry.
It’s C2E2 any second now. which means some C2E2-related rumours… especially fiftieth anniversary announcements for the X-Men to be made on Sunday at 12.45pm.
Like Frank Cho, as we reported before working on the fiftieth anniversary project, but like Avengers Vs X-Men, doing the prologue to the big event. And then the epilogue bookend as well.
Expect to see Declan Shalvey move from Venom to the X-books.
X-Factor will be cancelled in August or September…
I’m told that Gambit is scheduled to end with issue eighteen. No idea if there’s a Marvel NOW reboot or not. Morbius The Living Vampire may be the first of the Marvel NOW cancellations, at either issue 8 or 10.
Though the subject of cancellation rumours, I’m told that Captain Marvel is keeping on keeping on, given her planned appearance in Avengers 2, so expect that book to keep going to at least issue twenty right now.
Expect an Uncanny Avengers Annual in September and an All New X-Men Annual to follow.
The Winter Solider creative team of Latour and Klein both have new marvel work coming up, but look for a Winter Soldier relaunch for Marvel NOW 2. Could Ed Brubaker come back?
I’m hearing that the new Thunderbolts team will be familiar to current DC Comics readers…
No more news on Matt Fraction‘s Inhumans, but something tells me that may be saved until San Diego.
