Marvel’s “Avengers” And “New Avengers” To End In April

bnrr

 

ComicBookResources have reported that Marvel, via Press release, announced that their long running Avengers titles will be ending this April. The saga penned by the mighty Jonathan Hickman revolves around the two titles “Avengers” and “New Avengers”, and will focus on the planet incursion plotline that has been building up for some time. Each issue – “Avengers #44” and “New Avengers #33” will be oversized, as the team tries to prevent the crashing of our world into another.

Industry vet Mike Deodato will handle the art duty on “Avengers”, while Kev Walker will provide art on “New Avengers”. Hickman’s involvement in the Marvel Universe’s lore has roots all the way back to 2008, with his Fantastic Four run. When he kickstarted his Avengers series, some plot elements carried over from that series, as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes spiralled through the Infinity crossover, and more recently, the “Time Runs Out” event, which booted the series 8 months into the future. Even after the conclusion of these titles, Hickman will be handling the reigns on Marvel’s latest event, Secret Wars, which features a Battleworld made up of parts of alternate realities. You can read all about them here.

Checkout the offical press release below, as well as the interlocking covers of the final issues.

“Age Of Ultron” Promo Art Reveals The Vision

ComicBookMovie have discovered a theatre lobby banner depicting everyone’s favourite synthezoid, The Vision. Played in the Avengers sequel by Paul Bettany, it looks like we’ll be receiving the full Ultron family treatment (though alas, sans Ant Man for now), and believe it or not, Paul Bettany is no stranger to the Marvel universe.

He’s actually been voicing the robot A.I. Jarvis, that controls Tony Stark’s Iron Man suits. This leads us to believe that The Vision will be an enhanced version of Jarvis, or one of Iron Man’s suits. Whatever the case, we can’t wait to see the hero coming up in one of the most highly anticipated movies next year. Remember, “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” is set to drop May 1, 2015.
