While everyone is gearing up for Marvel Studios’ release of Captain America: Civil War on May 6th, Marvel Comics has quietly been trying to build anticipation for their own summer blockbuster: Civil War II. The event is a sequel to the 2006 story that inspired the upcoming film, but doesn’t seem to share any relation in terms of plot.
Marvel revealed the teams for Civil War II last month, and the teaser shows the players in action while revealing some awesome artwork.
The drums of war beat for the Marvel Universe this June, as the Earth-shattering CIVIL WAR II #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices with a jam-packed double-size issue! Blockbuster creators Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez and Justin Ponsor bring you a tale of hero against hero – and a Marvel Universe divided. A new power has emerged, one that can predict the future – for good or for ill. Standing on opposite sides, will the heroes use this new power to prevent danger before it happens? Or will they fight to allow tomorrow to unfold unaltered. Battle lines will be drawn. Lives will be changed. Heroes will fall. Do you stand with Captain Marvel? Or will you side with Iron Man? Choose your side!

Civil War II begins this June.
