Marvel has held very little back this week, and the announcements continue to roll in. Last Friday, “AvX: Versus” — the only standalone tie-in to “Avengers vs. X-Men” — was revealed. On Monday, Rick Remender and Gabriel Hardman elucidated their plans for “Secret Avengers.” Tuesday saw Brian Michael Bendis and Walter Simonson announcing a collaboration on “Avengers.” Yesterday, Cullen Bunn spoke on his upcoming “Captain America & Hawkeye.”
This morning, the publisher’s media blitz began with a teaser image for its Next Big Thing live press conference call later today — and it may bring up more questions than it answers.
With a filename of “TheOmegaEffect.jpg,” the image depicts Daredevil’s mask torn over a skull reminiscent of The Punisher’s emblem with webs surrounding it. While it may be safe to assume the upcoming announcement features Daredevil, Punisher and Spider-Man, the filename could also imply a return of “Omega the Unknown,” last seen at the hands of MacArthur Grant winner Jonathan Lethem in 2007. What “The Omega Effect” is and who it involves will undoubtedly come to light later today at 3:00 PM EST/12:00 PM PST as CBR News is on hand live for up-to-the-minute details on Marvel’s Next Big Thing.
Stay tuned to CBR for Marvel’s Next Big Thing live blog at 3:00 EST/12:00 PST later today.
