Now Marvel Teases Spider-Man Z

Two days ago, Marvel set the comic book world alight with speculation by posting a teaser image featuring the number 4 made out of spider webs, prompting speculation that the House of Ideas was either teasing a Spider-Man/Fanastic Four crossover or a comic book adaptation of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 4 script.

However, Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski insisted that fans would never guess what the teaser was really about…


And indeed, when a teaser dropped the next day with the number 3 in spider webs, it did seem to shoot down those initial rumors.

So, of course, this seemed to indicate a countdown, indicating Marvel would post a teaser with the number "2" today, but instead Marvel threw another wrench in the works when they posted the next teaser, this time featuring the letter Z.

This, of course, prompted another gloating tweet from the Marvel editor-in-chief:

So what is Marvel trying to tease here? Is it a Spider-Man crossover with Dragon Ball Z? Spider-Man Zombies? Cebulski just promoting his No Doubt cover band?*

Now Marvel Teases Spider-Man Z
"Sorry I'm not home right now I'm walking in the spiderwebs…"

Whatever is happening, we're likely to find out this week. Stay tuned, true believers!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.

About News with Benefits

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it's embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn't that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the "real" news? Don't answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
