Marvel Announces ‘Civil War II’ Creative Team

- Advertisement -

A few months back, Marvel sent retailers a postcard that featured Iron Man and Captain America about to throw down, with the roman numerals “II” on the back. Many assumed that Marvel was teasing a sequel to its 2006 event Civil War. Today, Marvel confirmed this news, and revealed the creative team:

In 2006, writer Mark Millar and artist Steve McNiven crafted a storytelling event that spoke to larger real world issues while also altering the Marvel Universe forever with Civil War. A decade later, Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez pick up the gauntlet for Civil War II.

The official launch date is still unclear, but it’s hard to imagine Marvel won’t try to sync up with the release of Captain America: Civil War in May.

Very little is known about the series, or why superheroes are at war once again. It is clear however that Sam Wilson will still be in the role of Captain America. It may also be worth mentioning here that Sam is currently at odds with both S.H.I.E.L.D and Steve Rogers in his own title, Captain America: Sam Wilson by Nick Spencer.

Pushing out comic books to serve as promotional material has not always worked out for the better. While this seems to be a move by Marvel to cash in on the hype surrounding the Civil War movie, hopefully fans get a well thought out and well put together story.
