The creative team behind The Mighty Thor, Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman, are reuniting for the project that will tab Malekith, The Dark Elf, spanning the realms, rampaging and making his way toward Midgard, against a laundry list of Marvel heroes (and villains), as a war will soon begin.
“I have been building towards The War of the Realms for the entire duration of my Thor run, said Aaron. “We’re talking six years and 80-something issues and counting. This is a war that covers the entire globe and involves the biggest heroes of the Marvel Universe, as you can see in this amazing promo piece.”
So, there is a lot to digest in the initial teaser image (above). Are you looking at this picture? Captain America is riding a winged horse, Daredevil is wielding a huge sword and dawning a galaxy-themed suit, there looks to be cameos by Blade, Punisher and Venom, among others, and … the big one … The God of Thunder has two, count ‘em, two hammers!
The War of the Realms begins in April, 2019, and will span over six issues, culminating with an endgame in June. Keep an eye out for more information as the event draws near.
