The Mighty Captain Marvel #8 Repeats Scenes From Secret Empire #8

We already looked at how Deadpool and Uncanny Avengers show us what happens after Secret Empire #10, also out today. Is it possible that The Mighty Captain Marvel #8 by Margaret Stohl, Michele Bandini, and Erick Arciniega by was planned for a few weeks earlier?

More on that to come?
