While it was rumored earlier this year as Marvel debuted the Time Runs Out story arc in the Avengers, and the numerous drastic changes certainly all point in that direction, Marvel Comics is giving even more ammo to the “Marvel Reboot” rumor patrol by giving us a teaser of the publisher’s Summer 2015 event, and it’s a doozy!We don’t have any solid details, but we do have this single image, and a creative team setup for the title, which leads everyone to believe that Secret Wars 2015 will be the capstone to Jonathan Hickman’s current Avengers event Time Runs Out which has flipped the Marvel U so hard on its head that all signs point to a line-wide reboot, but I’m still a big naysayer of the whole reboot idea, and this seems to be another just another Marvel bait & switch to this reader.
Of course, only time will tell, but if this event turns out to be half as good as writer Jonathan Hickman’s run on Avengers and their associated events, it’s going to be a must-read. Having artist Esad Ribic on the event makes things so much nicer.
There will be more news about this event as we approach the May 2015 release of Secret Wars, but that just means there’s plenty of time to spin up the rumor mill. What do you think Marvel has in mind with Secret Wars 2015?
