Empyre is coming fast and furious, in case you couldn’t tell by all the announcements, teasers, and promotional images Marvel Comics has been pumping out lately. The publisher has another trick up its sleeve with a teaser trailer featuring Executive Editor Tom Brevoort and writers Al Ewing and Dan Slott, giving us an idea of what to expect when the Kree / Skrull Alliance heads to Earth.
If you’re a longtime Marvel reader, this is going to pay off so many big things. If you’re a Marvel reader who started yesterday, welcome to the rich legacy of the Marvel Universe.
I’m curious as to how the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, and a slew of other Marvel heroes will react to Empyre, but I’m most curious about Wiccan and the other Young Avengers. That’s sure to be an interesting dynamic.
Al Ewing added:
This is going to change things forever both in terms of the architecture of Marvel space, the vast cosmic politics of it all but also in this really intense, emotional, personal level .I’d be astonished if anyone guesses what we got coming.
Empyre #1, written by Al Ewing and Dan Slott and illustrated by Valerio Schiti, is set for release on April 15th, 2020.
