Marvel has been teasing the upcoming Civil War II all over social media lately, and today they finally revealed the teams.
Little is known about the event, scheduled to debut in June of this year. Writer Brian Michael Bendis and Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso gave only a brief synopsis to the New York Daily News back in January:
“A mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy,”
“This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.”
Check out the new teasers below:
Team Iron Man
Team Captain Marvel
There are a couple of interesting things of note in these teasers:
- Friends are broken apart in spades. Steve Rodgers and Sam Wilson are on opposing sides, as are Black Widow and Hawkeye, and War Machine and Iron Man.
- Spider-Man looks to be siding with Captain Marvel right away, having learned his lesson from trusting Tony in the first Civil War series.
- Black Panther is choosing a side from the start. During the first Civil War, T’Challa abstained for most of the fighting.
- Deadpool is apparently political now.
Keep in mind that these may not be the complete teams. Marvel has shared other teaser images for Civil War II that also feature Jean Grey and Miles Morales, neither of whom appear on the teams above.
